Tud was born on November 9, 1957, in Graceville, Florida to parents Nathan M. and Jessie Lee (Forehand) Carroll. He was a true adventurer and outdoorsman. You could always find him hunting in the woods or by a lake trying his luck at fishing. He was a man who enjoyed taking a hands-on approach to life and never met a stranger who didn’t turn friend by the end of the meeting. He was a proud man with a larger than life heart. He is missed and forever loved by us all.
Tud is preceded in death by his father, Nathan; mother, Jessie Lee and step-father, John Ward.
He is survived by Carmen Carroll; son, Justin Edge (Cathy Miller) of Leesburg, FL; daughter, Kelly Carroll David (Brian) of Winter Park, Fl; sisters, Beth Eldridge (Ricky) of Leesburg, FL, Judy West of Leesburg, FL, Pat Fischer (Paul) of Atlantic, Iowa; brother, Gary Ward (Babette) of Mount Dora, FL; nieces & nephews, Carrie, Dianna, Timmy, Sonya, Nikki, Megan, Brian, and Matthew; four grandchildren; Chloe, Jillian, Colin, and Madeline Jo.
