Milton Carroll, a devoted family man and respected member of the community, passed away on September 8, 2023, at the age of 81. He was born on October 1, 1941, in Wortham, TX, and was the beloved son of the late Fain Everett Carroll, Sr. and Janie Belle (Young) Carroll.
Milton was a proud graduate of Mexia High School Class of 1959. He looked foward to the annual class reunions where he was able to visit with friends and share memories.
Milton was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Juanita, brother Fain Carroll Jr. and his cousin and dear friend Clifton Carroll.
Throughout his life, Milton was a loving and devoted father to his children - Brian Carroll, Debbie Leago and husband John, and David Milton Carroll. He cherished spending time with his grandchildren - Candace Carroll, Sara Masters, Stacey Chambers and husband Phillip, Seth Carroll, Sydney Carroll and Austin Thornton - as well as his great-grandchildren - Savannah Chambers and Shiloh Chambers. Milton is also survived by his sister Jodell Trantham and many nieces and nephews. Milton's presence brought joy, laughter, and a deep sense of love and security to his family, who will forever treasure the precious memories they shared.
In his professional life, Milton owned Milton Carroll Autos for over 35 years; before going into business for himself he was the Vice President of the First Mexia Bank. Milton was elected as Commissioner of Limestone County, where he worked diligently to serve and improve the community. His greatest passion was dirt track car racing at the Heart of Texas Speed Way and generously sponsored numerous drivers throughout his lifetime.
Milton was an active member of his home church, Covenant Life Fellowship, where he found solace through faith and nurtured his spiritual connection with God. Later in life, he became a cherished member of Christ Gospel Fellowship, where he truly embraced the community, serving others and spreading kindness in every interaction.
