Carroll Dayton Wooge of Oak Island passed peacefully at home on November 15, 2020. Carroll was born March 21,1921 in Rock Hill, SC and lived a long, very fulfilling life. Wooge had a warm smile and a kind heart that touched many lives.

Carroll moved to DC with his dad and sister as a young boy and grew up in Arlington, VA where he developed life long friendships and met the love of his life, Wyllo Ann, whom he was married to for 58 years. He joined the Army Air Corp and flew 58 missions in the European Theatre during WWII as a fighter pilot primarily in the P47 Thunderbolt. Wooge retired from the reserves as Lt. Colonel. He worked primarily on Capitol Hill for the US Senate and was a devoted member at his local VFW Post 3150. He and Wyllo made the best move of their lives to Yaupon Beach in 1979.

They acclimated quickly to the quiet residential area, he was Yaupon ABC commissioner and an active member of NARFE for several years. He loved to play golf, travel, enjoy the beach with family, friends and his pups and spend time in his garage on various projects. These last few years he has had loving support from family, friends, companions and neighbors that made it possible for him to stay in his home.

Carroll is predeceased by his beloved wife Wyllo in 2009 and also his brother David; two sisters Betty and Margaret; and his godson Patrick. He leaves behind his son Jon and wife Jancil, daughter Stacia and husband Jarron, eight adoring grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and nieces and nephews.

I met Mr. Wooge years ago when he was a member of Fox Squirrel
Country Club. It was always such a treat to see him with that
infectious smile enter the clubhouse to play a round of golf.
I lost touch with him when I left Fox Squirrel but saw him again
on many occasions at Walmart when he would come in and buy
seed to feed his birds. He was a pleasure to know and be around;
he could always put a smile on my face. I shall miss him.

My condolences to his family.
Sincerely Lynn McCain
