Carroll was a quiet man by nature with a great laugh, humble and introspective and he enjoyed his quiet time with his family.  He lovingly dedicated hours and hours to exploring the family genealogy and puttering around his house, playing with cars and motorcycles, struggling to learn to play the guitar and expressing his spirituality through poetry.

He is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Pat; his son, Michael William Boatwright; two grandchildren, Emma and Paige; a cousin, Martha Mixon of Augusta, Ga; and sister-in-law, Rosemary (Gary) McNutt;a niece, Elizabeth McNutt Marchand and nephew, James McNutt.
