Carroll was a devoted Christian most of his life. His greatest passion was his missions in Jolo, West Virginia. For several years, he was a volunteer song director at Oakvale Baptist Church and loved singing specials. The church was also blessed by his contributions as Sunday School Director and Teacher for several years. He loved his deer processing and used his business to share his faith, always taking time to talk with his customers about life and their walk with the Lord.

Turnage, Jr., Gerald Turnage, Larry Turnage, Thomas M. Turnage; and four Sisters, Lanelle Graham, Irene Stamps, Dorothy Reynolds, Louise Smith.

Turnage (Terrie), Wayne Turnage (Kathy); and a number of Nieces, Nephews, and other family members.
