The Home Going of Edward Carroll
Edward Carrol was born on July 26, 1940 in Cleveland, Ohio to the proud parents of Duncan Carroll Jr. (deceased) and Mercilee Carroll (deceased). Edward confessed and accepted Christ as his personal Savior at an early age. Edward was educated in the Cleveland Public School Systems and received his diploma in Detroit, Michigan, where he later relocated and was employed at General Motors.
Edward was married to his first wife, Eloise Carroll (deceased) and four children were born and raised to this union. Edward committed his remaining years to Annie Pearl Lewis (deceased) and to this union five children were born and raised. He was an entrepreneur and consultant in home renovation, alongside his uncles. Edward later expanded his hobby in woodwork and created beautiful furniture for his children and grandchildren.
Edward was known to his family and friends as:” Eddie”. He was a vivacious, fun-loving and straight-forward person. He enjoyed spending time with his family and loved to party with relatives and friends. Edward was a very expressive person. His facial expression and hand gestures were great cues for his point of view. One of his well-known quotes was, “Dot that ‘i’ and cross that ‘t’.” When we heard that phrase and saw that creative hand motion, we knew he meant business.
