Obituary of Justin Paul Carroll

Winter came in the early morning of February 18, 2019. Justin suffered a massive heart attack due to 100% blockage in his “widow maker” artery at the young age of 27. Although born in Santa Barbara County, CA on July 20, 1991, after 26 years Justin would have considered Nevada County, CA his Shire. A lover of all things nature, Justin, a Preservation Assistant for our local Bear Yuba Land Trust, cleared local trails and had rare opportunities to see acres of untouched landscapes that gave him so much joy.

Justin’s journey ended far too soon here with all of us. However, it appears his next purpose needed to begin. He started by saving his Uncle Peter’s life recently who nearly had 100% blockage in one of his main arteries resulting in a stint being placed immediately. Thank you, Justin.

Justin is a huge piece to a puzzle that will now never be complete but the outline to where his piece belongs will remain forever in our hearts and memories. He was preceded in death by Paul Larsen (Morfar), Blackie Carroll (grandfather), Charlie Hillman (grandfather), and our little “Doy-Doy” was recently joined by his sweet Mormor (Birthe Larsen) on April 10, 2019.

Justin now guards over his parents Clay and Annette Carroll, his Uncle Peter Larsen and wife Denise Larsen, his sister Jennie Carroll, and his beloved dogs Korra and Q-Tip. Family and close friends are welcome to join us in nature at Harmony Ridge Lodge from 2-5 p.m. to celebrate Justin’s Day, May 19th, 2019, to remember such a brilliant and beautiful man. Cogito Ergo Sum and May the Force always be with you JP. Love, Your Little Sissy
