Carol enjoyed being active and outside. He retired from Peabody Coal Company and spent his retirement years staying busy. He was known for his garden and enjoyed sharing it with family, friends and most anyone else who dropped by. He loved to buy and sell at auctions, repair and sell lawn mowers, and generally horse trade anything else he got into his hands. He spent many mornings at the restaurant swapping stories and tall tales. He enjoyed fishing and he taught all his grandkids how to catch both catfish and crappie.
