Bernard (Barney) Joseph Carroll, Age: 78
Jun 29, 1940 -- May 30, 2019

On Thursday, May 30th, 2019, Bernard (Barney) Joseph Carroll, loving husband and father of 5 children, passed away at the age of 78. He died peacefully in the arms of his beloved wife, Nancy. Barney was a true Irishman, many of us secretly believed that he was actually a leprechaun. Born June 29th, 1940, Barney and his 4 siblings, John, Marie, Mike and Joe were raised in Kansas City, Kansas, by two loving parents, Catherine and John Carroll. He graduated from Bishop Ward High School in 1958 and spent time after high school serving the country that he loved in the United States Marine Corps Reserve. On August 19, 1961, he married his high school sweetheart Nancy Sue Lindquist. Together they raised five children, Barney, Katy, Ann, Danny, and Kelly. 

Barney spent the majority of his 78 years of life loving, honoring and cherishing his wife of 57 years Nancy Sue. He also intensely loved his family and showed us the true meaning of love. He was the ultimate gentleman. He was the kind of man you wanted to be. He always held the door for anyone, but especially his sweetheart and life-love, Nancy. Barney had a smile for everyone and a love for his own comedic timing that he enjoyed more than most. He always seemed to be cracking himself up all the time. He was known for his quick wit, his infectious smile, and his kind and compassionate spirit. Barney was preceded in death by his mother and father, his bother-in-law Jody Lindquist, his sister-in-law Jeri Carroll, and his darling daughter Katy Carroll. He is survived by his wife Nancy, his four children, his sisters and brothers, his thirteen grandchildren, one great grandson and more cousins and nieces and nephews and friends than anyone count. We will miss everything about you Barney Carroll, we will see you on the other side.

Visitation will be held from 9:30-11:30 a.m. with a Memorial Mass following at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 4, at Cure of Ars Catholic Church, 9405 Mission Rd. Leawood, KS.  In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorial contributions to: Sisters Servants of Mary.

Nancy, I was so sorry to hear of Barney's passing. Although I didn't know him personally, I was always impressed with his pleasant demeanor and charming smile whenever I saw you two together. I regret that I didn't have the opportunity of knowing him better. I can tell from his loving tribute in his obit that he was a very special husband, father, and grandfather, as well as a good man. I know that you have had more than your share of losses recently and hope that you will be blessed with the grace to persevere. God Bless you and your family at this difficult time.

I'm so sorry to hear about Barney Joe's passing. I wish I was in Kansas City to be there to support everyone. Barney Joe was one of my favorite people of all-time. He was always upbeat and friendly and greeted me with a smile. I love your family and hope that all of you are comforted by the great memories of his life and the positive impact that he had on all of you and so many friends and family-members. I miss him already and pray for all of you that you find peace during this difficult time. David Lindquist
