Carroll B. Winsor, 88, of Quitman, Arkansas, passed away on Monday, December 11, 2023.  He was born in Berryville, Arkansas, on June 21, 1935, to Dorence Winsor and Berlie Hilton Winsor.  Carroll was preceded in death by parents Dorance and Berlie Winsor, his wife Velma Wolf Winsor, daughters Tina Winsor and Nancy Winsor, sister Louise Stark, sister Patsy Holland, and brother Jimmy Winsor.

A Korean War Veteran, Carroll joined the military at the age of 19 and served in several locations, including Arkansas, Oklahoma, Korea, Hawaii, New York, and Massachusetts.  After discharge from the military in 1963, he started a civilian government career with the Army Corps of Engineers working on several lock and dams in the Missouri, Illinois, and Arkansas areas.  Carroll’s career also included working on two large construction projects in Saudi Arabia, the Jubail Naval Base in the mid 1970s, and the King Khalid Military City in the early 1980s.  He went on to work on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers projects in Hohenfels, Germany, and retired from there in 1990.

Carroll married Velma Wolf in 1958 and they enjoyed the life of travel and were blessed with six daughters.  The family enjoyed experiencing the cultures, architecture, and people of their travels and life abroad. 

Carroll retired to Quitman, Arkansas, where he had free time to work on home projects and Velma spent her time gardening and sewing.  After retirement, Carroll enjoyed serving with the Army’s Rehired Annuitant Cadre for emergency and disaster response.  He also volunteered extensively at Baptist Health in Heber Springs, being recognized with the most volunteer hours on more than one occasion. Velma and Carroll enjoyed their peaceful life in Arkansas and loved spending time with family.

Carroll is survived by his daughters Elaina Winsor of Charleston, South Carolina; Linda Blacketer of Anderson, South Carolina; Sheryl Hall of Bald Knob, Arkansas; and Barbara McGuire of Conway, Arkansas; sisters Shirley Clark and Debbie Davis both of Heber Springs, Arkansas; ten grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, and many other family members related to his large family originating in the Heber Springs, Arkansas, area.

Carroll Winsor’s final resting place will be at the Arkansas Veterans Cemetery in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
