Carroll C. Alexander

Carroll C. Alexander, 82, of Jayess, passed away peacefully at his home on Oct. 13, 2023. Carroll was born on Nov. 10, 1940, in Tylertown to Esley and Mattie Alexander of Jayess.

A service was held Oct. 15 at Divide Methodist Protestant Church in Monticello. Interment was in the church cemetery. Wilson Funeral Home handled arrangements.

He is survived by his wife, Davida Dunaway Alexander; his children, Lisa Dawson (Bobby) and Bonita Sullivan (Mike); and son-in-law: Larry Robinson. He is also survived by four grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and a sister, Francis Easterling.

Mr. Alexander was preceded in death by his parents; one daughter, Cindy Robinson; six brothers, Reginald, Robert, Carl, Leon, Van, and Oakley; and one sister, Evelyn Faulkenberry.

Carroll was a great husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He worked hard as a mechanic and maintenance technician so that he could retire and enjoy his family. After his retirement, he enjoyed making wooden toys and taking them to festivals. He also enjoyed raising goats and chihuahuas, camping, and especially spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He will be greatly missed by all.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Special Project Fund at Forest Grove Methodist Protestant Church.
