Funeral services for Terrance M. “Terry” Carroll, 63, West Plains, Missouri, will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, November 12, 2016 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, located at 2800 Christie Drive, West Plains, under the direction of Robertson-Drago Funeral Home.
Mr. Carroll passed away at 10:15 a.m., Saturday, November 5, 2016 at his home on Flying R Ranch, Douglas County, Missouri.
He was born January 7, 1953, to Carla Butler Carroll Johnson and the late Clyde Carroll, at Chillicothe, Ohio. He married the love of his life, Pamela Keltner on June 3, 1994. As the founder of Carroll and Sons, Terry spent many years in the construction business. As of May, 2011, Terry and Pam opened Flying R Ranch and have welcomed guests throughout the country, appeared on three nationally televised episodes of Tom Seay’s Best of America on Horseback and have been the source of entertainment for horse and outdoor enthusiasts. As an avid supporter of Boy Scouts, Girls’ Camp and as a youth leader for the LDS Church, Terry was concerned about teaching and loving all who came to know him. When asked how he was doing Terry’s typical response was, “Better than I deserve to be”. Certainly knowing Terry Carroll has made us all feel better – may he now rest in peace.
