Caroll was born near Grandfield, Oklahoma April 21, 1928. He resided in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma for 35 years before relocating to The Arbors Assisted Living in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Caroll was Honorably Discharged from the Army November 30, 1956.
Caroll liked people of all kind. Conversation came easy wherever he was, whether employment, his church, serving as a Stephen Minister, or his time as a care giver to many family members throughout his life.
As a father, he never missed his daughter’s recitals, basket ball games, cheer, school events, birthdays, College Dad’s Day, and many late night calls from college.
A private burial is scheduled at Oklahoma City Resurrection Memorial Cemetery. A Memorial celebration of his life is scheduled at Church of the Servant, 14343 N. MacArthur Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at 2pm.
The family would like to thank Dr. Jon Axton and Nurse Mary Jo of Oklahoma City for their care and support during his battle with cancer and Tulsa Arbors Assisted Living for their care as well. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to Grace Hospice Foundation.
