Graveside funeral services for Carroll Allen Williams of Leander, Texas will be held Monday, September 3, 2018, at the Eden Cemetery in Eden,. TX. Carroll was born November 2, 1939, in Lampasas, TX to Alva and Mildred Williams. The family moved to Eden, TX where he attended school. He graduated from Eden High School in 1958. He was a member of First Baptist Church, Eden TX. After high school, he attended San Angelo College, San Angelo TX. He was a veteran of the United States Army. During his tour of duty, he served at Fort Ord Army Post CA, South Korea, and Patrick AFB/Cape Canaveral AF Station FL. After his service, he was employed at Lone Star Gas Company in Ft Worth TX. Later he was transferred to Dallas TX. It was here that he met his future wife, Linda Lou Vick. Carroll and Linda married in the First Christian Church of Terrell TX. Over the last almost 52 years they have made their home in Garland, Gilmer, Midland, and Leander TX. Carroll's first retirement was from Oryx Energy Company in Midland TX. He later worked for Smith Brothers Pipe in Midland. After several years there, he retired at age 70 to live out his life with Linda in Midland. Due to health problems, Carroll and Linda moved to Leander TX to be near their daughter. Carroll is survived by his wife Linda Lou of Leander TX; son, Tracy L. Williams and wife Jacqueline, of Pleasant View UT; daughter, Susan Nicole Longbine and husband Mark, of Austin TX; 3 grandsons of Halifax PA and 3 grandsons of Austin TX; his brother, Butch Williams and wife Johna, of Eden TX; sister, Dinah Lynn Stanley and husband Monty, of San Angelo TX; sisters-in-law, Maxine Vick of Terrell TX and Virginia Vick of Longview TX along with many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his brother, Arnold L. Williams and wife Dottie, of Charlotte NC. Also surviving are his loving 4-legged companions Greta and Fritz. Heidi preceded him in death. During his high school years, Carroll enjoyed playing in a small band as an Elvis impersonator. Butch and Dinah remember being horrified at the sight of teenage girls crying and screaming as he sang and did his Elvis moves. While living in Gilmer, you'd find Carroll out in his boat fishing in one of the many lakes around the Longview/Gilmer area. Upon moving out west to Midland, he was able to enjoy his second hobby of hunting with frequent trips to his deer lease in Sterling City TX.
