James Edward Carroll, 89, passed away on Tuesday, November 17, 2015.
James was born on February 6, 1926, in Wrightsville, Georgia, to the late Bennie and Alta Carter Carroll. As a young man he proudly joined the United States Army, and it was with great honor that he served for over 20 years. His service spanned World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. During these years, James began repairing and making watches as a hobby. After retiring from the Army, he took his hobby to a new level and began working fulltime as a watchmaker for several different jewelers, but spent the bulk of his career at Strauther-Harris Jewelers in Warner Robins. James was a long-time member of the First Church of the Nazarene. A man with many interests, in his spare time he enjoyed gardening, fishing, baking, and cooking. He loved nothing more, however, than time spent with his family and this especially included his precious grandchildren.
In addition to his parents, James was preceded in death by two brothers, Arnold and Jimmy Carroll, and a sister, Gladys Foskey.
His memory will forever be treasured by his loving wife of 57 years, Travis Mimbs Carroll of Warner Robins; son, Mike Carroll (Dana); and grandchildren, Seth and Mady Carroll, all of St. Simons; as well as his siblings, Myrrel Carroll of Wrightsville, Christine Foskey of Warner Robins, and Jack Carroll of Dublin.
Visitation with the family will be Wednesday, November 18, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. at The Church of the Nazarene. The funeral service will follow at 11:00 a.m. in the church. A committal service will be held at 2:30 p.m. when Mr. Carroll will be laid to rest in the Mt. Olive Church of The Nazarene Cemetery in Wrightsville, Ga.
