Rob was born on September 3, 1976, in Dubuque, Iowa, son of Michael and Hannelore (Then) Carroll.
Rob attended school at Hempstead High School before going out and joining the work force. He was employed at Ponderosa until they closed and then went to Perkins for several years. He was lastly working at Pro Clean Car Wash in the detail department until he was forced into early retirement due to health issues. In his free time, Rob could often be found riding his BMX bikes around town or rooting for his Dallas Cowboys. He had a great love of animals in general, and everyone knew how much his dogs meant to him. Rob was a man of faith and had a generous soul. He was willing to give someone the shirt off his back if they needed it. He was the definition of a free spirit, going wherever the wind took him and spreading kindness along the way. Rob was greatly loved and will be missed tremendously by all whose lives he touched.
