Obituary

Charles (Charlie) Carroll III

June 4, 1945—February 6, 2019

Born to Charles Carroll Jr. and Teresa Gough Carroll on June 4, 1945 in New Orleans, LA, the family moved to Long Island, NY two years later.

Survived by his significant other of 17 years, Joan Riggenbach, children and grandchildren Terri Coyle (Gary, Chris, Samantha, Mikey), Tommy Reedy (Megan, Michael, Casey, Jimmy), Charlie Carroll (Jackie, Hope, Brady), Brian Riggenbach (Mikey), Abby Nobili (Bobby), Andy Riggenbach (Lindsay, Kennedy, London).  Two brothers John Carroll (Kingston, NY) and Bill Carroll (Lynette) (Myrtle Beach, SC), sister-in-law Sandy Carroll (Tolleson, AZ) and several nieces and nephews.

Preceded in death by his parents and brother Harry.

Charlie served in the Coast Guard for several years and in 1967 began his police career at Orangetown Police Department in New York where he served for 20 years and rose to Sergeant. Upon retiring he moved to Lake George, NY where he was an avid boater and never passed up an opportunity to take kids waterskiing.

He was a snowbird in Fort Myers, FL for many years where he eventually moved to full time in 2000. He had many hobbies which included working on and racing cars, flying, being an active member/board member of the Fort Myers Flying Club, and taking yearly trips to visit family in his beloved New York state.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida.

A True Love.

Father and friend to many.

Brother.

Police officer.

Pilot. Boater. Nascar Fan.

True New Yorker and Patriot.

Above all, Tiger was a fighter and a lover of life and will be greatly missed by his family and all who knew him.

    At the dog track. So many great memories. Met Charlie and Joan were my dad's neighbors and after the passing of my dad in 2005, we became neighbors. Charlie, with his heavy New York accent, reminded me of my dad. We will miss you, Charlie.

    This day we lost a great friend who had the most positive outlook amidst his ongoing battle over the years. Never a complaint was heard from him. We will all miss our friend Charlie.
