LAM, Carroll F.

lost his valiant struggle with myelodysplasia on August 2, 2019, surrounded by his loving family. Carroll, an only child, was born to Frank and Lois Lam in Oglesby, Texas, on June 24, 1936. He attended Texas A&M as a member of the Corps of Cadets, the Ross Volunteers, Eta Kappa Nu, and Tau Beta Pi. After earning his Ph. D. in electrical engineering from A&M, he remained active in supporting his alma mater, both financially and with his presence throughout his life. Carroll served 20 years in the United States Air Force, retiring in 1979 as a Lt. Colonel. Afterward, he spent 24 years with SAIC, a high technology company, eventually rising to Corporate Vice-President. In retirement Carroll converted his lifelong hobby of photography and film into a hobby/business selling video editing equipment and creating videographic products for business and pleasure. He loved car racing and seldom missed attending the Indy 500. Survivors include his loving wife, Donna, of 35 years; his stepdaughter, Kimberly Byers (Greg); his stepson, Judson Grubbs (Jennifer); two sons from a prior marriage, Kelly and Caleb Lam, and three granddaughters, Devon, Elodie and Kenzie. He leaves behind many devoted friends. Carroll will be buried with full military honors at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Marana. Special gratitude to the doctors and nurses who provided excellent care over the years. A private celebration of his life is planned. Arrangements by BRING'S BROADWAY CHAPEL.

It´s hard to believe it´s been two years. So many have passed through our doors at Arizona Oncology that you also knew and are now gone. I heard the name Carroll called the other day in our lobby and a gentleman got up and I bowed my head and smiled to myself because for that brief moment I remembered you.

I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Carroll through his visits at Arizona Oncology. He was always very friendly, happy, and put a smile on my face. He loved talking about cars and sports with me . He was a wonderful gentleman.

Like so many others we never actually met the man that created the legendary Cassie Tips List, a forum that helped so many of us through the years. He was always ready to explain how-to methods and this list gave us the opportunity to offer tips and ideas to one another; as well as the ability to chat and get to know one another across the country and the world. He was a legend in the Cassie community and will most definitely be missed.

I never had the opportunity to meet Carroll, although I talked on the phone with him several times as I was starting my editing career. He sold me editing software and answered my silly questions. He was so GENUINE and honest and was never pushy. He was one of the BEST software dealers on this planet. I am so sorry for your loss as this hit the editing community very hard.. An AMAZING man for sure and Heaven called him home.. Thanks for the time he gave us and he will be missed...

I worked with Carroll as a contractor while he was in the Air Force and as a trusted colleague for all his time at SAIC. He was a mentor and a friend. His tutelage set me up for the successes my career enjoyed.

Carroll shared with me his love for racing, inviting me to the Big Dance at the Brickyard several times. That love ignited embers that have continued unabated for over 30 years. A number of our family members are now avid racing fans: we have made it a family tradition that continues into the third generation.

Carroll taught me the life lesson that adversity can be overcome by perseverance that doesn't have to be showy. For that I will be eternally grateful.

Carroll, I wish I could fly the Missing Man Formation for you. Godspeed on your journey into the next realm.
