Carroll Edwin Kann, of Avon, CT, passed away on May 26, 2020 at the age of 80. He was born in Shippensburg, PA on March 30, 1940 to the late Edwin A. and E. Marie (Riggs) Kann. Carroll married his high school sweetheart Joyce (Burkholder) Kann in 1961 and they celebrated 58 years together in September.

Carroll graduated Catawba College in 1962 with a degree in history, politics and philosophy later to receive an honorary doctorate from the college. He went on to Lancaster Theological Seminary graduating in 1965. After being ordained he served as a minister in Mountville, PA. He became associate conference minister of the Mid Atlantic UCC in 1975 in Columbia, MD and later moved to Connecticut to serve as Connecticut Conference Minister of UCC until 1988. Carroll retired in 2003 after Consulting for Eastbridge Consulting Group in Avon, CT.

Carroll mostly enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. His strong sense of family and community were built upon from his upbringing on a small dairy farm that shaped his character as loving and compassionate to everyone he met. His passions were fishing, golfing, cooking and playing cards. He was head cook of the Old Chimney Camp in PA for several years packing up supplies and recipes every deer-hunting season.

Carroll is survived by his beloved wife, Joyce and his children, Dirk Kann of West Hartford, CT and Lisa Kann of Columbia, MD, two granddaughters, Taylor Kann and Ally Kann and sister Barbara Beard along with several nieces and nephews.

There will be a service at Grace Church in Shippensburg, PA at a date to be determined. In lieu of flowers please send donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital or to Covid-19 relief efforts. The Vincent Funeral Home of Simsbury, CT is caring for the arrangements. Please visit Carroll’s “Book of Memories” at for online tributes.

Joyce, Dirk, and Lisa - you have my sympathy at the passing of your husband & father. Joe, Susan, and I not only worked with Carroll at Eastbridge, but continued to have breakfasts with him for so many years after we'd all left. One of my favorite lines from him was when you'd moved to the "Active Adult" community in Avon and he told us "I feel like I have to keep walking and walking to qualify!" He and Susan always shared their love of cooking shows, cooking techniques, and recipes. He always brought us humor, sympathy, and caring over the years. His presence is missed.

To Joyce and the family,
Carroll was a warm, caring and thoughtful man. We shared happy times at the golf course, restaurants and our homes. He made the greatest blueberry pies! He will be missed. God bless.
