Joseph Michael Carroll, beloved brother and uncle, passed away 3 September from depression. He was 42. A lover of bears, dirty jokes, and kitteh scritchins, Joe was the person who always had your back and would move heaven and Earth to bail out a friend. He is survived by his sister Rachel and his brother in arms Brian, who expected another 20 years of friendship and games and not to have to write such an article, Reeses, a torty kitten who misses her treat provider, as well as a small army of friends, supporters, well wishers, and happy bears, who've lost a true paragon and champion. A memoriam is currently being planned for Sunday at 530 pm at Jensen Park in Syracuse

I just can't wrap my head around the fact that you're gone. You were one of my favorite people!! Always a sweetheart, willing to help out whenever you saw we needed help, we didn't even have to ask, you'd just jump in. Always a good attitude and funny as hell. I miss you so very much. It's just not the same without you. I hope you finally have peace. Love and prayers go out to your family and vast amount of friends!! πŸ˜ͺ❀

I will always remember the fun we had. You always had the answers to my questions and I loved that we had some of the same interests and I could talk to you about things others didn't understand. Life takes us in opposite directions but I always thought of you when I needed to remember lessons learned. Light and Love to your family and Happy trails on your next adventure. Until we meet again! Rest In Peace, my Friend!!!
