Following school, he worked for the Belle Plaine school system. On Nov. 27, 1957, Carroll married Kathryn Mae Hoover at Bethany Evangelical United Brethren Church. Together they lived in Belle Plaine until Carroll was drafted in to the U.S. Army. Following his military service, Carroll and Kathryn moved to Colorado to be near family. Carroll worked for Boulder Valley School District, Boulder, Colo., where he retired after 35 years. In 1997 Kathryn and Carroll moved back to Belle Plaine.
