Dan Carroll
May 3, 1925 - February 14, 2019

Dr. Daniel Marion Carroll, Jr., of Waco, was born May 3, 1925, in Bluefield, West Virginia, to Daniel Marion Carroll, Sr., and Leticia "Lettie" Celestial Smith Carroll, and passed away February 14, 2019, at the age of 93. Services will be at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, February 19, at Columbus Avenue Baptist Church in Waco, Texas, with the Rev. Josh Vaughan officiating, followed by a graveside service at the Wortham Bend Cemetery. The family will receive visitors on Monday evening, February 18, from 5-7 p.m. at the OakCrest Funeral Home, 4520 Bosque Blvd., Waco, TX 76710.

Dan graduated from Beaver High School in Bluefield, WV, served 3 years in the U.S. Army, got his B.A. degree at Carson-Newman College in Tennessee and then graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1952 before moving to Costa Rica for 2 years and Argentina for 15 years as a missionary, where he served as a church planter, librarian and professor of religious education at the International Baptist Theological Seminary in Buenos Aires. While on furlough in 1959 he completed his Doctorate in Religious Education in the United States. He also served as a missionary in Jamaica, the Dominican Republic and another 16 years at the Baptist Spanish Publishing House in El Paso, Texas.

Retirement brought him to Waco, Texas in 1989 where he joined the staff of Columbus Avenue Baptist Church as librarian, working right up until his last week when he said, "I cannot retire...that library and those books are my life." In addition to his librarian work, he was an avid beekeeper and gardener, held a Master's level license as a Spanish-language Licensed Court Interpreter for the State of Texas and was heavily involved in prayer ministry. He was a wonderful husband and father, and a friend and servant to everyone he met.

He was preceded in death by his brothers Webster Carroll, missionary to Africa, Arthur Carroll of Bluefield, West Virginia, and daughters-in-law Pat Carroll and Sharon Carroll. He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Betty Alice Cowan, whom he married on August 17, 1948, his sister Mattie Mullins of Tennessee, and three sons, Daniel Marion Carroll, III and wife Ruby, Charles Cowan Carroll and wife Nursel and John Price Carroll; grandchildren Kim Henderson and husband Royce, Daniel Marion Carroll, IV, Brooke Caperton and husband Cory, Christopher Carroll and wife Erin, Rachel Ulmer and husband Chris, Bethany Carroll, Luke Carroll and wife Lindsey; and seven great-grandchildren.

Pall bearers will be grandchildren and their husbands Daniel Carroll, Christopher Carroll, Luke Carroll, Cory Caperton, Chris Ulmer and Royce Henderson.

I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Daniel Carroll’s passing. I’ve met Mr. Carroll last year at a HOT BEEKEEPERS Assn. meeting. He was such a delightful man, full of wisdom and spice of life. I think I can speak for the HOT BEEKEEPERS Assn. when I say, He will be dearly missed. Rest In Peace Mr. Carroll Jeff & Jackie Conners

Dear Betty and family: Jo and I were greatly saddened when Cherry called to let us know that Dan had gone to be with the Lord. We remember with great joy our time working together at BSPH in El Paso. You and Dan always had a smile that refreshed our days. We regret we are unable to join you for the memorial service, but be assured we are praying for you and your boys and their families. May the Lord give you peace and grace in these days. In Christ, Lewis and Jo Lee 13938 Amber Crest San Antonio, TX 78249 210-699-3964

Dearest Betty, God has surely called one of His greatest saints Home; and I know Dad & Mom were there to welcome Dr. "B". What a joy it was to see him in the CABC library, the sanctuary, at the store, and on the other side of our front door the Saturday he came to find us when I was, regrettably, too slow returning your calls. He said he had promised you he would find us before the day was over, and he did. We thoroughly enjoyed having him visit us. And thank God that the young man he followed here from a nearby convenience store truly was the "angel" that Dan told him he was, as we all thanked him for his help. Dan spent his life sharing His Savior with all he met; and he certainly did with that young man that afternoon. May God be with you and your dear family, providing the peace and comfort that only He can. Our love, James & Donna Adams Zemanek; Janet Adams Slaughter; and family.

The world has a hole in it today where Dan Carroll used to be – but his light still shines on. We will never know how far reaching his ministry was. I was one of those he ministered to. After my father passed away, he took me under his wings and helped me out of my depression. He was there to offer encouragement when my mother became sick. When I moved away, he would send me care packages of books so, “I would never run out of something to read”. He was a great prayer warrior and encourager but most of all he was my friend, and I miss him. Lifting the family in prayer. Coyne Schafer
