It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, and grandfather, John Bernard Carroll, Jr. John passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on the evening of August 5th, 2019. Born in Chicago, Illinois, and raised in Monroe, Louisiana, John made every day count, brightening the day of anyone who he came in contact with. Known for saying “Keep smiling” no matter what the day tried to dictate, his love for others, his unique sense of humor, and his ability to take everything in stride made him stand out from the crowd. John was always a family-man, enjoying many family trips up California’s Central Coast and to the beautiful shores of Oregon where he and his beloved bride Linda enjoyed many days walking, holding hands, and enjoying the breathtaking views that only nature can provide. Never a man of many words, John was the kind of person that, when he spoke, you listened. Proud but never boastful, smart but never condescending, he was always insightful and always there when you needed him. Married to his beautiful wife of 36 years, John and Linda shared a life together devoted to each other with an unyielding love that was the envy of many. If God was ever looking to make two people the perfect fit, he succeeded with them. A dedicated father and grandfather, John coached and attended countless swim, soccer, gymnastics, water polo, football, volleyball, and softball events, just to name a few. Always there to lend a hand with school work, or just to read a story to a grandchild, John always wanted better for his children and grandchildren. John will be lovingly remembered by his wife Linda, and his children Cynthia (Gary), Jenny (Mike), John, Erik (Teresa), Michelle (James), and Lindsay(Kevin). John will also be fondly remembered by his ten grandchildren, Michael, Alyssa, James, Cody, Brayden, Taylor, Jaxon, Tiffany, Kamryn, Avery and his beloved rescue dog, Kallie. A memorial service will be held in John’s honor on Monday, August 26, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. at Miramar National Cemetery, 5795 Nobel Dr., San Diego, CA 92122.
