Obituary for CARROLL JEFFERSON

Carroll Jefferson was born on December 12, 1925 to the late Evelyn Taylor. He peacefully departed this life on March 2, 2013. Carroll was raised in Calvert County by his grandmother, Annie Jefferson. He was educated in the Calvert County Public School System. At an early age, he worked on the farm to help support his family while growing up. He was united in holy matrimony to Victoria Chase on June 28, 1948. From this union seven children were born. Carroll and his loving, devoted wife were inseparable. They did everything together and enjoyed spending spare time with their children and grandchildren. They customized the inside of several vans and RV's they purchased together. They also loved to build and remodel. Carroll, his wife, and children built their home together on Camp Canoy Road (The basement was dug by hand!!) The most recent project that Carroll and Victoria completed together was the beautiful, factory looking, custom made kitchen cabinets that are in their kitchen. He devoted his life to his wife, children, and grandchildren. He briefly served in the U.S. Army. He worked at various shipyard companies as an engineer. He also worked for Baltimore Gas & Electric. He was an excellent mechanic and would always lend a helping hand to anyone. He had many talents, including carpentry. Some of his hobbies included listening to Oldies but Goodies, and watching his favorite sports, baseball and football. His favorite teams were the Baltimore Orioles, Washington Nationals and Washington Redskins! He also loved to go camping. Many family trips were taken to the mountains.
