Obituary for FRANKLIN SYLVESTER CARROLL

On September 11, 2014, Franklin Sylvester Carroll, affectionately known as “Dickie,” departed this life at his home in Temple Hills, Maryland. He was born on July 9, 1947 to Margaret (Jones) Hall and Franklin Carroll, Jr. Educated in the Calvert County Public Schools, he graduated from W. S. Brooks High School in 1966.

Shortly thereafter, Dickie was drafted into the U.S. Army. He completed his basic training in Ft. Bragg, North Carolina and served as a Military Police Officer. Dickie proudly served in the Vietnam War and was honorably discharged in July 1968.

Dickie followed in his father’s footstep, becoming a bricklayer at an early age. He owned and operated C & N Construction. While the building trade was in his genes, he was not afraid to venture into other professions. In the early 80’s, Dickie started Dynamic Productions, a successful entertainment promotions company.

Dickie worked hard and played hard! In his younger days, he played left field for the Wicomico Hawks, a semi-pro league. He was an avid bowler, naming his bowling ball ‘Black Beauty.” Dickie was a diehard Redskins fan and had a love for fast cars. A NASCAR fanatic, he religiously attended the annual competitions, traveling near and far just to see Jeff Gordon’s Chevy SS speed around the track. Dickie enjoyed playing Poker and Spades and could be found, on any given weekend, in Atlantic City or at Dover Downs.

Dickie loved his family and friends. At gatherings (small or large), he was the life of the party. He loved his mom’s home-cooking. While his friends are too many to name, some were: Maurice Brooks, Dave Brown, Gene Gray, Wilson “Wookie” Holland, James “Hoppy” Jennifer, Joseph “Renny” Reid, and Joseph “Chap” Wood.

Dickie was proceeded in death by his father, Franklin Carroll, Jr.; his step-father, James Hall; his daughter, Tonja Carroll; and his brother, Charles “Boogie Man” Jones. He leaves to cherish his memory: his mother, Margaret Hall; step-mother, Alice Carroll; his children: Bryan Carroll (Nicole), Franklin Harrell (Stephanie), and Delonté Carroll; his grandchildren: Bryan Carroll, Brandyn Carroll, Tenia Casraiss, Jermaine Drennon and Jaela Harrell; his brothers: Robert Hall, Jr., Leo Carroll (Lydia), George Carroll; his sisters: Dorothy Holland (Stan), Florence Gray (Lloyd), Nancy Carroll, Lorraine Turner (Leonard); Adell Brooks (Maurice); and his sister-in-law: Lula Jones. Dickie will be deeply missed by his nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
