Carroll Allen Webb

May 10, 1939 ~ October 5, 2018 (age 79)

Carroll Allen Webb, 79, died Friday, October 5, 2018 at home surrounded by family.  Born in Belmont, May 10, 1939, he was the son of the late Carroll Johnson (CJ) Webb and Kate (Katie) Graves Webb. Carroll graduated from Belmont High School and served 32 years in the United States Army Reserve and retired as Sergeant First Class.  He prepared thousands of soldiers using his passion for teaching and sharing his expertise in demolitions. Carroll retired from Jacobsen where he was a quality control inspector.  He also operated his own specialty parts manufacturing business.  He loved all things musical, was a gifted guitar player, soloist and choir member at churches and the Army Reserve.

He was a member and deacon of Sunset Forest Baptist in McAdenville, and collected glass bottles as a boy to purchase bricks for building the church.  He was also a member and deacon of Craig Memorial Baptist, and most recently attended Centerview and McAdenville Baptist.

He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Betty Jean (BJ) Webb.  Their first daughter, Carolyn, died at four months of age.  He is also survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Sherry and Kenny Wilson, Stanley; son and daughter-in law, Michael and Sherry Webb, Mount Holly; and daughter and son-in law, Kimberly and Bryant Laney, Charlotte.  Carroll adored his four grandsons Christopher Wilson (partner Adam Stanfield), Adam Wilson, and Ethan and Noah Laney.  Carroll had three siblings: his surviving sister Frankie Gibson, McAdenville; and deceased sister Jackie Nantz, Stanley; and brother Ronnie Webb, Atlanta.

His love of family, friends and all things music was evident as he was always ready to share a laugh or a song.  The concessions stand rooftop at the Belmont Drive-in served as the stage where he spent many weekend nights as a teenager singing with friends.

Services with military honors are managed by Woodlawn, Mount Holly on Thursday, October 11th at 5:00 pm with family visitation at 4:00­­.  The family requests donations in lieu of flowers to Gaston Hospice.
