John Ewin Carroll, 84, of Simsbury, CT died peacefully at McLean in Simsbury, on Monday, October 14 where he was surrounded by his loving family. He was born March 17, 1935, to the late Eleanor and Benjamin Carroll of White Plains, NY. He was a loving husband to his wife, Patricia (Penny) Carroll for 59 years.

John was a hard-working and creative craftsman who had a deep love for family, community and boating on the beautiful ocean waters. He graduated from White Plains High School in 1953 and subsequently attended Columbia University. He then served as a Seabee in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War and was stationed in Adak, Alaska. Following his years in the Navy, John worked for Castrol Oil, Hamilton Standard and Fountain Plating Company. Later, John founded Handyman Services, Inc. and was a successful residential remodeling contractor serving the Farmington Valley for over 30 years.

He spent the better part of 50 years sailing and boating with his family. His most recent vessel was the Marine Trader “Magic”. John and Penny were active members of the Marine Trawler Owners Association (MTOA) where he served as Chairman. John was actively involved with the Simsbury Police Commission, Simsbury Theatre Guild, Simsbury Summer Theatre for Youth, Simsbury Historical Society and was appointed to the Simsbury Design Review Board.

John leaves his wife, Penny; daughter and son-in-law, Deborah and Bruce Kaechele; son and daughter-in-law, John B. and Julia Carroll; daughter and son-in law, Diane and Chris Ozmun and his beautiful grandchildren, Allyson and Mackenzie Kaechele, Carey Ozmun and Benjamin and Elizabeth Carroll. John also leaves his sister and brother-in-law, Gale and Michael Silverberg along with his nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews - all of whom he loved dearly.

There will be no calling hours. A funeral service to celebrate his life will be held on Saturday, October 19th at 11:00 a.m. at Simsbury United Methodist Church, 799 Hopmeadow St., Simsbury, CT followed by a burial in the Simsbury United Methodist Church Memorial Garden. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the American Heart Association or the National Kidney Foundation. For online condolences, please visit .

I am sorry to hear this news. John Carroll welcomed us to town, helped us with our house, and always had a genuine smile for me and my family. My condolences to Penny and family. May he Rest In Peace.

Dear Penny & Family - I was so shocked to hear that John has passed away. So very sorry for your loss. He was an amazing person; a good person. Fifty-nine years is a long time sharing your lives together. Many never have that opportunity to be together for that long. You were blessed.

After seeing John this summer while doing your estate sale, I was under the impression he was doing pretty well, as he kept coming over to the house and "picking" up things after the sale while I was clearing out the garage and house. He was perky, and full of energy then. I'm so sorry. May you have an abundance of memories of the good times in your lives and peace for John.
I apologize, but I won't be able to make the service at 11:00. I have a commitment with TGS I can't break away from until after 3:00 p.m. If people are still around at that point, I would love to see you & family. Just let me know if that is possible.
