From: Division of Campus Planning, Infrastructure, and Facilities

On Jan. 6, 2021, Roger Carroll, 65, of Christiansburg passed away. His passing was very sudden and unexpected. He was preceded in death by his parents, Etta and Robert, special aunt Allene Phillips, and son-in-law Danny Ramey Jr.

Carroll was born in Montgomery County, Virginia, to Etta and Robert Lee Carroll. He grew up with four siblings, Robert (Virginia) Carroll, Wanda Carroll, Anita Carroll, and baby brother Randall Carroll.

He had a passion for all football, especially the Hokies, collecting rare coins, NASCAR, and baseball cards. He retired from the Virginia Tech Division of Campus Planning, Infrastructure, and Facilities and worked with a great group of people at Collegiate Suites/Hunters Ridge before he passed.

Carroll leaves behind many people that loved and admired him. Brothers Robert (Virginia) Carroll of Richmond and Randall Carroll of Christiansburg; sisters, Wanda Carroll and Anita Carroll, both of Christiansburg; ex-wife and special friend Susan Carroll of Christiansburg; daughter Mandi Ramey of Christiansburg; grandchildren Eerin (Joseph) Jacobs, Austin (Katelynn) Ramey, and Ashlee Ramey; great granddaughter Olivia Ramey; son Joshua (Jamie) Carroll of Christiansburg; grandchildren, Demetrios Carroll, Jackson Carroll, Dominic, Evie and Vincent; and many very special nieces and nephews.

Due to COVID-19 there will not be services held at this time. However, a celebration of his life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations for his family should be made to Horne Funeral Home.
