Born in Maury County and raised in Hampshire, TN, Robert touched the lives of those around him with his warm heart, love for family, and zest for life.

During his childhood, Robert found great joy in the simple pleasures of life. One of his fondest memories was spending time with friends, swimming at the creek. He cherished those carefree moments of laughter and friendship. Robert had a deep passion for football and found solace and excitement in watching the game. Music resonated deeply within him, and he often found comfort and inspiration in its melodies. Baptized in the Church of Christ, Robert’s faith provided him with strength and solace throughout his life.

He adored his mother, Patsy Carroll, and treasured the bonds he shared with his siblings: Comer (Debbie) Brewer, Lorie (Earl) Wise, Troy (Vanessa) Brewer, Billy (Rhonda) Carroll Jr., Tommy (Tammy) Carroll, Kim (Ricky) Duberry, and Angie Boshers. Robert was preceded in death by his fathers, Billy Carroll Sr., and Comer Brewer Sr., and his brother, Mike Carroll. He is survived by his loving nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.

Robert had a vibrant personality and a wide range of interests. He had a fondness for the ladies, cherished the beauty of watches and a cup of coffee brought him great joy. His enthusiasm for life was contagious, and he approached each day with a spirit of adventure.
