Charlie was born June 24, 1926 in Morehead City, NC to the late Charles F. Carroll and Nellie Wynne Carroll. He was also preceded in death by son, Daniel Carroll, Danny’s wife, Raychel and great-granddaughter Mallory. Charlie grew up in High Point, NC and upon graduation from high school, enlisted in the U.S. Navy during World War II, and was a Radioman on the aircraft carrier USS San Jacinto. Following the war, he enrolled in Guilford College and graduated in 1949 with a Bachelor of Science degree.
