Robert T. Carroll

AGE: 64 • Shark River Hills

Robert T. Carroll, 64 of Shark River Hills, Neptune died at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune on Saturday Feb. 4th after a long battle with cancer.

The eldest son of Robert F and Helen Doris Carroll, Robert spent his early years in Freehold NJ. In 1962, his family relocated to Asbury Park, where he worked on the boardwalk in the summers and attended Asbury Park High School graduating in 1974. He continued his studies at Rutgers University in New Brunswick and received his MBA there. Robert also became a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) working at various firms in and around the Monmouth County area.

In 1986, he opened his own CPA office on Main St. in Asbury Park, where he practiced up until December 2016. Robert enjoyed his runs on the boardwalk in Belmar and participated in the Belmar 5 many times. For the years he couldn't run,

he continued to collect the shirts from each year's race to add to his collection.

Robert was a Boy Scout leader and avid motorcyclist, having traveled the country many times with his motorcycle buddies.

He was also a member of the Friends of Shooting Gun Club and a pretty good poker player. He was an avid bowler and treasurer of the Thursday Night Bankers Bowling League in Bradley Beach for 5 years. Over the last few years he often sang at karaoke events. His signature song was "Take on me" by Aha. Rob, as he was called, was known for his good nature and his humor and was loved by his family, friends and clients

Although he could run five mile races without a problem, he could not outrun the cancer that took him.

Robert was predeceased by his father, Robert F Carroll in 2011 and by one of his younger brothers, Thomas C. Carroll who lost his own battle with cancer in 2010. He is survived by his mother. Doris, Asbury Park, his only son Daniel, of Philadelphia Pa., also his two sisters Ellen Carroll of Neptune, and Marianne Tantrum and her husband David of Oakhurst, two brothers; Patrick and wife Lama, of Holyoke, MA and Christopher and his wife Carmen, of Little Silver NJ.
