Shawn Lawrence Carroll

May 22, 1970June 20, 2020

Shawn Lawrence Carroll, 50, was born in Chillicothe, OH on May 22, 1970 to Terry Carroll and Sheila Stauffer Carroll. Shawn passed away unexpectedly on June 20, 2020 at Baptist Medical Center South. He grew up in Chillicothe and spent many years working on his family farm. After graduating from Southeastern High School, he joined the U.S. Navy in 1990 and served as a P3 Flight Engineer. Shawn began his JEA career in 1998 as an Apprentice Lineman. He was a dedicated employee and eventually worked his way to become an Electric Maintenance Coordinator.

Shawn was a member of The Jacksonville Supervisor's Association and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. He was an active member of Fruit Cove Baptist Church where he was recently saved and baptized.

Shawn enjoyed watching NCAA and NFL Football and was dedicated to his favorite teams—the Florida Gators, Ohio State Buckeyes, and Jacksonville Jaguars—every weekend. He was a fan of NASCAR and enjoyed playing golf with his father, son, and friends. His biggest passion was spending quality time with his family and friends laughing and having a good time. Everyone who spent time with Shawn knows that his infectious laugh would light up a room.

Shawn will be remembered as a devoted husband to Susan and loving father to Brandon, and stepfather to Apryl and Larry (deceased). He was a caring son, brother, uncle, brother-in law, son-in-law and friend to all who loved him.

Shawn is predeceased in death by paternal grandmother, Betty (Sturgill) Tillis; paternal step-grandmother, Glenola Carroll; maternal grandparents, Bob Stauffer and Helen (Shewalter) Stauffer; stepson, Larry Murph, Jr.; father-in-law, William Ganey.

He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Susan Carroll; son, Brandon Carroll; father, Terry Carroll; mother, Sheila (Stauffer) Carroll; step-mother, Cathy Carroll Lamm; sister, Denise Carroll; brother, Tyler Carroll; grandfather, Vernon Lawrence Carroll; daughter-in-law, Ginny Murph; grandchildren, Caeden, William, Noah; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

The pallbearers include Angel Vilchez, Nick Stafford, Rocky Waldroup, Dustin Kanady, David Escobar, and Bert Sparks.

The family would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support during this difficult time; special thanks to Pastor Tim Maynard and their Fruit Cove Baptist Church family for everything you all have done.

Visitation will be held from 10:00am to 11:00am on Thursday, June 25 at Fruit Cove Baptist Church followed by the Celebration of Life at 11:00am. Interment will follow at Oaklawn Cemetery.

Growing up we spent most our days working on Grandma and Grandpa`s farm. We spent time playing football and basketball. With each moment spent together my brother, sister, Shawn and his sister Denise always enjoyed each other's company. I already miss him so much. May God be with his family. Love always. Rick Branham

I met Shawn at work. He was ALWAYS so upbeat and a positive influence to everyone he was around. He taught me things about the trade I will never forget. He has left his mark on this earth and will always live in the hearts and minds of so many of us at work. You will be missed buddy. R.I.P.

My wife and I met Shawn, his wonderful wife Susan and their son Brandon, when they moved in next door to us last August. From that day forward, I discovered that here was a man who has always displayed this uplifting personality, full of joy, and love for his family. Seldom are we blessed with a neighbor that is so devoted to his family, yet finds the time to share himself with others. He will be missed by so many, but especially us.

My heart aches for this beautiful family.😢 Although we hadn't seen each other in a long time, we will forever hold the memories of Shawn & Susan joining our house warming party over 22years ago at our new home even in the pouring rain/storm. You didn't let that storm keep you from being with friends to celebrate. As difficult & heart breaking as we can only imagine this must be for you, we pray that you won't let this keep you from continuing to live life with your loving family. Shawn will always be with you Susan. ❤Hold on to those beautiful memories. Praying over your family & over you especially. May God wrap his arms around you❤🙏
