Mr. Carroll was born in Greensboro, Georgia, to the late John and Gertrude Carter Underwood. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Tech. He proudly served our country in the U. S. Army during World War II as a specialist with the Army Airways Communications System completing tours in New Guinea, the Philippines, and Japan. Carroll had a successful career as the Executive Director of the Southwest Georgia Regional Development Commission retiring after thirty years. He was an active member of Heritage Baptist Church. He loved the Lord, his church, and his church family. Mr. Underwood worked, contributed and prayed as Heritage began plans for a new facility and was thankful to live to see his church moved to their new home on Lake Joy Road. He was preceded in death by his loving and devoted wife of sixty-two years, Lila Underwood; and three brothers, John Underwood, Weymon Underwood, and Lowell Underwood who passed away on the same day as Carroll. Left to cherish the memories they made with Carroll are his son and daughter-in-law, Michael and Jan Underwood of Perry; his grandchildren, Maria Willard (Jimmy), Kari Ann Carpenter (Greg), and Michael J. Underwood; his “lady friend,” Doris Williams; seven great-grandchildren; and six great-great-grandchildren; his siblings, Gilbert Underwood, Perry Underwood, Claire Hertzler, and Lanelle LaRue; and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.
