Davis Carroll Obituary
CARROLL, Davis Of Boston, on February 22, 2011, died from complications of injuries sustained after being hit by a car. Carroll graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and soon began his career as a painter. A member of the Copley Society of Boston, the American Watercolor Society, and the Boston Watercolor Society, he was well known for his artwork. His paintings featured the distinctive landscapes, gardens, houses, and street scenes of classic New England locales such as Marblehead and Boston. Mastering a unique technique of painting in watercolors on rice paper, Carroll portrayed Yankee clipper ship models, flowers, and antiques that represented regional life. His work was widely exhibited in the Northeast and Florida. In addition to exhibiting his art, he was a dedicated teacher with many loyal students. After residing in Natick for many years, in later life Carroll resided in Boston where he was a member of St. Cecilia's Church and an advocate for the Campaign for Human Rights and the AIDS Action Committee. He is survived by his children, Elizabeth, Alicia, and John Carroll, their spouses Ralph Letner, Robert Kulick, and Marci Aylward, grandchildren Dorothea and Caroline Letner and Alexandra Kulick, his sister Joyce Mulcahy, many nieces and nephews, and his long-time companion, Robert Glazier. A memorial service will be held in June and donations, in lieu of flowers, may be made to the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts, 75 Amory Street, Boston, MA 02119. Arrangements entrusted to the care of the John Everett & Sons Funeral Home, 4 Park St. (at Natick Common) NATICK.
