Jimmy D. Carroll, 76, died on Monday, May 6, 2019, at his Shafter residence. He was born to C.H. and Margie Carroll of Oklahoma, who preceded him in death, as well as brother Eldon Carroll. Jim joined them in their heavenly home.
Leaving behind his wife of 58 years, Ronnie Carroll, and two daughters, Ronda Martin and Teri Carroll, all of Shafter. Jim also left behind a great legacy of two grandchildren, Candy Hanner and Justin Martin, six great grandchildren, Shandy Lauderdale, Shae Floyd, Star & Sunny Hanner, Luke and Stella Martin, two great great grandchildren Artie and Ellie Lauderdale.
Jim loved his family and worked at the family business for almost 30 years. "He was also known as the loveable ole guy behind the counter.'' Some of his last words were ``take care of the business'' because he loved the community and the people that shopped with us.
He fought a brave and lengthy battle before succumbing to cancer. He will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.
