Carol and Loretta had a lot of fun together. You could find them at the Nevada Speedway every Saturday night where Carol was the flagman for many years and Loretta counted laps. They loved old fast cars, country dancing, bowling, snow ski trips and playing golf together until Loretta became to ill with cancer to do so. Carol could fix just about anything and who the family called upon when something broke. He liked classic cars and enjoyed doing body work and restoring a classic when he was younger.

Carol was a force of nature, determined to provide for his family and give them the life he felt they deserved. His family meant more to him than anything else, something he often mentioned. He was unendingly proud of all his grandchildren and always tried his best to support them. Carol could often be found at a golf tournament watching his granddaughter Emree Cameron. Emree’s funniest memory of him was when he went to Augusta National to watch her compete in the National DCP competition. Standing near hole #1 Carol could not believe how beautiful the grass was and didn’t think it was real. Right there he got down and all fours to check and said, “yep, it’s real.” Carol enjoyed riding the 4-wheeler with all his grandchildren, spoiling them with sweet treats and talking to them about Jesus.

Throughout his entire life, Carol held an unwavering faith in God which he shared with those who surrounded him. Carol really wanted to make sure everyone knew Jesus Christ.
