Mr. Alan Ray Carroll, age 66, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away on Friday, October 30, 2020 at his home.

Alan was born on August 9, 1954 in Poplar Bluff, Mo., the son of Allan M. Carroll and the late Ann L. (DeBoard) Sullivan.

Alan grew up in Lenexa and Overland Park, Ks. Alan and his family moved to Jefferson City, Mo., where he attended Jefferson City High School and played football, ran track, and excelled in drama, theatre, speech, and debate. Alan graduated from Jefferson City High School in 1972. After graduation, he attended the University of Missouri – Columbia on a theatre scholarship. Alan was the first freshman to make the Main Stage Theatre since George C. Scott. Alan also attended Missouri State University and graduated from Lincoln University where he majored in English Language and Literature, and Philosophy.

Alan proudly served our country in the United States Navy where he served as a Hospital Medical Corpsman and as Field Medic for the U.S. Marine Corps. Most recently, Alan was employed by the Jefferson City School District as a substitute teacher. He thoroughly relished teaching and interacting with students, sharing his lifelong love of learning and vast knowledge of literature, music, and history.

Alan had a passion for music and performing and he truly made the world his stage. He enjoyed playing his bass guitar with his band “The Phil Luke Experience” and he was known to his band members as “Doc”. Alan had a love for the written word and was a talented writer of poems, prose and music. Alan also enjoyed fishing for hours on local lakes, throwing the ball around with his kids when they were younger and coaching their baseball teams. He was an avid Kansas City Chiefs fan, always wearing all of his Chief’s gear to cheer them on to victory. Some of Alan’s favorite memories are being on stage playing music, taking scenic drives, and most of all, spending time with his friends, family, and the friends that became family.

Survivors include: his father, Allan Carroll (Sue) of Centertown, Mo; one son, Jorma “Jay” Carroll (Emily) of Jefferson City, Mo; one daughter, Casey; two sisters, Allyson Harkins (Patrick) of Raymore Mo., and Rachel Burks of Jefferson City, Mo; five grandchildren, Brenden Carroll, Kaylee Carroll, Hayden Carroll, Hayley and Carter; seven nieces and nephews, Ashley Tillett (James), Brandon McCue, Morgan Weems, Caroline Brock (Matt), Adam Harkins (Kelsey), John Paul Harkins, Anna Harkins, Carleigh Burks, and Jacob Burks; and seven great nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his longtime significant other, Cathy (Duncan) Coil of Jefferson City, Mo; her children, Tonya Coil-Sapp (Phillip) of St. Joseph, Mo., and Tara Ronimous (Chris) of Holts Summit, Mo; and her grandchildren, Kole Sapp, Skylar Gomez, and Tommie Love, who all thought of Alan as a father and grandfather and whom he loved.

Alan was preceded in death by his mother; one sister, Alana Petrovic; one nephew, the Reverend Evan P. Harkins; and one great niece, Alana Mae Weems.

Due to the pandemic, a Celebration of Alan’s Life will be announced at a later time.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to the Little Theatre of Jefferson City, P.O. Box 105515, Jefferson City, Mo. 65110. Friends may mail sympathy cards to the funeral home or leave condolences online to be given to his family.

Funeral arrangements are under the care of Freeman Mortuary, 915 Madison Street, Jefferson City, Mo. 65101.

Alan was a loving, caring man. He always spoke very fondly of his Dad. He would do anything for you. I'll definitely miss Alan. The world just got a little less bright with him gone.
