    I am so sorry to hear that “Grandpa Carroll” has passed away. He was such an important part of the school communities of St. Anthony and St. Charles schools. Every year we looked forward to his appearance on St. Patrick’s Day. He loved the children and enjoyed sharing his Irish stories with them. He and I shared the same last name and Irish background so we had a special bond. He was a true gentleman. I will always remember his wonderful smile and that twinkle in his eyes. He will be missed. My condolences to his family.

    Grandpa Carroll will be missed by many!!! He was such a wonderful, kind, compassionate man who loved chatting with the children and staff at St Anthony School. Always took the time to stop and have a word with the warmest smile around. He taught 2 of my children and many others how to tie their shoes. We will always remember Grandpa Carroll !!!’ In our our thoughts and prayers. Deepest sympathies to his family !!!

    I was so sorry to hear the Grandpa Carroll had passed away. When I was the secretary at St. Anthony School he would approach me every year and ask which students needed snow suits, etc. he would tell me to take the kids for lunch and to buy them everything they needed for the winter weather. He did this for a number of years and never wanted to be acknowledged for his generosity. More people should be as kind and caring as he was. My sincere condolences.

    It’s so hard to believe that my BIG BROTHER is gone. So many memories of us growing up. We were a family of 8girls and6 boys. There are now 7girls and 2 boys (old gits) pat was always the dandy, always dressed to kill. As we would say! Knowing us, he locked every
    Thing in a press (cupboard) but the lock was screwed from the outside so when I had the odd special night out I would unscrew the lock, wear his suit, then when I
    Arrived home I would put the suit in a plastic bag, hide it under a bush and when Pat went to work put it back in his hiding hole. His shoes, too, were highly polished with a special ox blood polish. So many memories! He was always our mother’s favourite. May he rest in peace. His little brother Gerry (Gerard)

    Our sincere condolences to Pat’s children, grandchildren, and extended family. We have many great memories of Pat through the years at various social events, church dances, concerts, etc. , where Pat would break out in song, with a smile and a twinkle in his eye, singing his favourite Irish songs. In recent years we have enjoyed brunch after mass on Sundays with him and Joanne, where he would be his usual smiling, joyful self interacting not only with our group, but other clients there as well. Everybody, whether they knew him or not, enjoyed his friendly interaction. He will be greatly missed by many,

    My sincere condolences to the whole family! My last fond memories of Pat, was a trip with Therese and myself to a funeral in Ottawa. No matter the occasion, he could always make you laugh. In his better years, he would always walk around the church after Mass, hugging and kissing the ladies. I will never forget his humour. He would always say, “Here is the lady that I dyed my hair for.” No matter the mood that you are in, he would always manage to get a smile or a laugh out of you. I can imagine him uniting with Mary, and I bet she has a lot of questions for him.

    Eternal rest grant unto Pat, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine on him. Rest in peace, Pat.

    Pat and Marie Carroll held a special place in our lives for many years. We really enjoyed their visit to Calgary when we got to spend a few days of rare one-on-one time with them. Pat was dressed to the nines throughout his holiday: forever the gentleman. We remember them both for their light heartedness and candor and for their unfailing commitment to family, friends and community. Pat’s singing was his trademark and it brought such joy to so many – including his old work buddy, Bob South, who suffered from Alzheimer’s. Pat sang songs that soothed souls. May he rest now in the arms of all those he loved who went before him. And for those of us still here, Pat’s Irish eyes will twinkle in our minds every time we hear an Irish tune.

    I was really sorry to hear of the passing of Grandpa Carroll. He was such an inspiration to staff and students at St. Anthony School. He always came in with a smile. He was lovable, cheerful and kind; always ready to help anyone in need. His stories captivated the children and made them look forward to his next visits. It was a blessing to have him in our school. We were honored to have known him. His wonderful and gentle soul will forever remain in our hearts. My sincere condolences to the family.

    Today is a sad day as we bid a final farewell to my brother Pat. I talked to him on the phone only 4 weeks ago and he sang “I’ll take you home again Kathleen”. I will forever cherish this memory.
    The morning passes quickly in one lifetime, before you even notice, it’s gone. Cherish the memories.
    A final farewell from Kathleen, Richie and family.

    Deepest condolences to Pat’s family on his passing. We watched the lovely funeral service on the Web. Pat was obviously a much loved man with an abundance of talents and a born entertainer . Our late Mother Elizabeth (Lizzie) and Pat’s Dad (Paddy) were brother and sister. The two families lived quite close to each other in Dublin. Our older siblings would have a lot of memories of Pat. Three of our siblings also emigrated to Canada. Pat seems to have led a full and interesting life. May He Rest In Peace.

    I was sad to hear of Pat’s passing. I will truly miss him. I got to know him as our Santa Claus at St. Thomas a Becket. As time went on he would regale me with his stories of Ireland and how lucky he was when he got his job in Canada. Later on as I started to have grandchildren he took a shine to them and in his inimitable way became part of their lives. Frances and I had the privilege in 2009 to sit beside Pat and Mary at the marriage jubilee, our 50th their 60th. Then came the Sunday breakfasts at Pizzalini’s where Pat would take over the restaurant and entertain everyone. I will surely miss him when we are able to go back. May he Rest In Peace and enjoy eternity with his beloved Mary.
