John Edward Carroll “Pahoo”, age 58 of Lima, Ohio was a beloved husband, father, brother, uncle, and a cherished friend of many. John passed away on Sunday, June 25, 2023, at The James Cancer Hospital in Columbus, Ohio with his wife by his side.

John was born to Ronald “Ray” Carroll and the late Ruth (O’Keefe) Carroll on April 22, 1965, in Lima. On Saturday, August 14, 1993, John married the love of his life Ann Marie Burkholder, and they were 2 months shy of their 30th anniversary.

John had a passion for sports and coached youth football and youth wrestling for approximately 12 years at Elida Local Schools. He was employed by Kmart 4301, Brinks Armored Car Service, Northwestern College, Elida Police Department, Cairo Police Department, Lima Correctional Institution, North Central Correctional Institution, and most recently Allen-Oakwood Correctional Institution.

John was preceded in death by his mother, Ruth Carroll and brother-in-law, Garry Sevitz both of Lima.

As a true animal lover John had a special place in his heart for “Princess” LillyBelle his 150 Lbs. Neapolitan Mastiff who was definitely a daddy’s girl.
