Robert Rexford Carroll passed into eternal life on January 2, 2021 at Timber Ridge Heath Care Center, Wilkes-Barre, PA following an illness. Bob Carroll lived most of his life in Wyoming, PA where he was involved in various community activities.

Born on June 13, 1960 in Pittston, PA, he was the son of Robert D. and Gladys Warner Carroll, who predeceased him.

Bob attended Wyoming Presbyterian Church with his family. As a youth, he was an Eagle Scout and achieved the distinction of membership in the Order of the Arrow.

In earlier years, Bob enjoyed canoeing, hiking, camping, and gardening. He loved vacationing in particular to the Outer Banks, North Carolina. He was extremely interested in current events especially politics and was an avid collector of Lionel model trains.

    Boy did I love your brother Pam. He was one of my best friends growing up and I thought of him often through the years after we went our separate ways. We talked a little several years ago, but unfortunately never got the chance to get together. I remember so many good times, riding around in his old Triumph, and just hanging out talking about life, girls, and boy did he love politics, even way back then.. I remember your parents like it was just yesterday, and I can’t remember what I had for dinner 2 days ago, so what does that tell you? My wife called me at work to tell me that she heard he had died, and I could not really talk about it. I never had the chance to meet his boys, but I hope that they grow up to be at least half the man that Bob was. This picture is exactly the way I remember him, just a little older like the rest of us. Glad to see that the smile and the eyes never changed. I remember him having that little bit of a head tilt as well when he smiled and gave you that look. Lots of people have passed, and while I miss them, this one leaves a little bit bigger of a hole in my heart. He was a class act, just like his dad. Rest in peace buddy.

    My brother (Art) and I remember the trips to the circus with Bob.
    His father always secured us tickets since it was at the Kingston Armory and Mr. Carrroll was a high ranking officer in the organization.
    I also recall collecting coin with him as a young boy.
    May he rest in peace.

    It has be a while since I talked to Bob, but I knew he was having health problems. Still, it is a bit of a shock when a friend you grew up with passes away. My sympathies to all in the family. I wish I could attend the viewing, but am out of town at this time. Bob and I first got to know each other when we were in Kindergarten at the old Butler Street School and were pals, along with Greg Price through college. We were almost like brothers as kids. As our lives progressed, life goes on, and we went our separate ways, we would only see each other occasionally. Still, those memories are strong and I mourn his passing. As others have noted, Bob lived an active and full life. I was fortunate to be part of that life. I will miss him and pray for him and his family.

    I remember the many good times with Bob while attending Kings and also for several years afterward. We did several trips to Camp Lackawanna canoeing on the Susquehanna River. We even built a raft one year for the Cherry Blosdom Festival. We grew apart as we both became busy with job and family responsibilities. My condolences to Chris and the boys. Your dad was a good man.
