Carroll was born Dec. 11, 1945, in Garner, the son of John and Esther (Knoke) Kaduce. He attended rural school in Klemme, Lake Mills and graduated from Garner High School. He graduated from Mason City Junior College (now NIACC) in 1965. There he met the love of his life, Marcele Mott at a YMCA dance. He was drafted in May 1966 and served in Korea and was honorably discharged in May of 1968. Carroll was united in marriage to Marcele on Dec. 2, 1967, at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, in Mason City. They recently celebrated their 50th Anniversary in Nashville, Tenn. They welcomed two children, Jill and Chris. He worked for over 33 years in the railroad industry, starting as a clerk, dispatcher and eventually general manager of a short line railway. He made many friends in the railroad business. Carroll enjoyed tractor rides, going on RAGBRAI, football games, traveling and walking on the beach. His greatest joy was spending time being involved with his grandchildren and their activities. He had a gift of connecting with people. Strangers became friends very quickly. He made everyone he met feel special.
