Carroll retired from Jasper Furniture. He was an expert mechanic and well know in the racing community. He was sought out by people all around to work on their cars.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by the love of his life, Carolyn Dockery. He was also preceded in death by five brothers, Chuck, James, Kendall, Ronald and Boyd Dockery; and a sister, Edna Mae Cross.
He is survived by a brother, Jerry Dean Dockery; and sister, Mary Ellen Mehaffey. Carroll is also survived by Cindy and Ellis Ledford, whom he has been a father figure to for many years. He also leaves behind many nephews and nieces whom he loved and adored and has been a father figure to them as well.
