Dean Carrol, age 82, passed away peacefully at his home on Friday, January 4, 2019 surrounded by his family and under the loving care of Community Hospice. The Tattnall County native lived most of his life in Tattnall. A patriot in every sense of the word, he served 10 years in the Georgia National Guard. That love of service above self also was evident in his career; he retired after 21 years of service from the Georgia Department of Corrections at Rogers State Prison. As a man of faith, he focused on God, Family, and Country, however in his idle time, he enjoyed piddling and working on old cars. Dean is preceded in death by his siblings; Rena Patrick, Louise Carroll, Juanita Cobb, Harry Carroll, and Wilson Carroll.
Left to celebrate a wonderful life made together are his wife of 32 years, Adren Carroll of Collins; children, Marty (Lisa) Johnson of Fargo GA, Curtis (Teresa) Johnson of Homerville, and Christie (Charles) Courtemanche of Tallahassee FL; a sister, Vera Morris of Lyons; 10 grandchildren; 14 great grandchildren; numerous other relatives and friends also survive.
