Carroll was an active member of First United Methodist Church, Longview where he was in the Waddell Sunday School Class. He also served as an usher and volunteered in several other areas within the church. Carroll had several hobbies over his lifetime, but his real love was golf. His love and participation in golf brought him many good friends over the years. His real joy from golf came from teaching his kids and grandkids the game. He was preceded in death by his wife, Sandra, and his parents Les and Myrtle Shipp and one brother, Billy Paul Shipp. Those left to cherish his memory are his son, Howard and wife Vickie, daughter Sheila Rogers and husband Danny, his grandchildren Kyle Shipp and wife Carrie, Stephanie Collins and husband Chris, Lara Zahn and husband Dustin, Patrick Simmons and wife Hannah, Branson Rogers and wife Nicole and Bailey Rogers. He is survived by 5 great-grandchildren, Bailee, Cullen, Cooper, Sadie and Mason, and numerous nephews and nieces and golfing buddies.
