Eugene Horace Carroll
May 30, 1950 – March 6, 2018
Eugene Horace Carroll, 67, went to be with The Lord on Tuesday, March 6, 2018. He was born to the late Horrace Carroll and Hilda Washam in Charlotte, NC on May 30, 1950. Gene was born in Charlotte, NC and lived there his entire life. He graduated from Garinger High School in 1971 and obtained his HVAC degree at CPCC. He began in the heating and air conditioning business while in high school alongside of his father until his passing in 2000. Gene then became the sole owner of Carroll Heating & Air Conditioning and worked with assistance from his brother Stephen part time. Gene was a very hard working man and along with his father built a very loyal customer base over the years. Gene has always loved fishing and spent much of his free time over the years at local lakes, but his one great love was his annual fishing trip with his brothers Neil and Stephen, and many close friends at Masonboro Island. When he wasn't on the trip, he talked about it constantly. He also became a skilled metal artist over the past 15 years working on unique creations made from old copper parts from old air conditioners and furnaces. He made hundreds of unusual pieces of art over the years and had them on display at his office. One art piece now sits in the entranceway of Westminster Presbyterian Church. He loved seeing his nieces and nephews and their children, and enjoyed having a gift to give to them. Gene was a gentle man with a very kind and giving heart. He was always there to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. He will be greatly missed. He is survived by brother Neil Carroll, nephew Clint and wife Anastasia Carroll, niece Melissa and husband Brandon Dusanic; sister Susan Harris, nephew Brent and wife Harmony Harris, niece Sarah and husband Patrick Robinson; brother Stephen Carroll, niece Heather and husband Curtis Scism. Visitation will take place on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 101 Colville Road, Charlotte beginning at 12:00pm. Funeral Service will follow at 1:00pm. Interment will take place at Sharon Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Westminster Presbyterian Church. Arrangements are under the care of McEwen Funeral Service.

A Garinger 1969 Class Reunion, 25th one we had in 1994. Gene Carroll is in the back row, third one from the right (next to Roger Melville, fourth one from right). Was so proud to see Gene that day so many years ago. Know Gene is RIP now. Heaven's gain now. May God's Blessings be upon Gene and his family now forever!

Dear Family of Gene, So very sorry for your loss, as we all know Heaven's gain now. Treasured the many times that Gene visited us over 20 years to be sure our AC Heating was fine. Especially also in the far past when we went to Garinger HS and graduated. Also well remember Gene working at a Pet Shop, some years ago, I visited quite often. Know Gene enjoyed his metal hobby. Amazing the great fish he caught. Know he will be missed by many. All our love and affection, Hugs for you all, Roger & Kathleen Melville
