Carroll's Story

LINCOLN - Carroll D. Worcester, husband of the late Shirley (Miller) Worcester, 74, of Lincoln, passed away on 

February 19, 2015. He was born in Prentiss, Maine, on November 21, 1940, the son of Urban Worcester 

and Agnes (Moores) Worcester.

Carroll grew up on Thompson Corners in Prentiss, Maine. At a young age he began working on Ray 

Thompson's dairy farm. In the early 60's he went to work in the woods for Gerald Moores, taking part in 

one of the last log drives down the lakes from "in behind the mountain." While employed by his uncle 

Gerald, Carroll and one of his 5 man crews set a Dead River Company record for the most four foot 

wood cut and piled in a week. Carroll was self employed with a trucking/logging business during the 

sixties and seventies. After shutting down his business and working for several other logging companies, 

Carroll worked many years for Thompson Trucking and finished out his career with Robin A Crawford, 

Inc. Carroll could run and repair any piece of logging equipment. During his brief retirement, Carroll 

could be found in his garage in Lincoln or on his beloved "Corners" tinkering on equipment. He was 

always "enhancing" something to meet a particular need. Carroll grew up learning to blacksmith from 

his grandfather Seward Worcester and had the same love as Grampie Seward had to invent something 

to make a job a little easier.

Carroll is survived by his daughter, Kimberly Nevells of Ogunquit; his daughter, Robin Jipson and her 

husband, Hazie, of Webster; and son, Terry Worcester and wife, Michelle, of Lee. Carroll is survived by 

eight grandchildren, Ian Nevells and friend, Annie, Nathan Nevells and wife, Kristy, Leigh Nevells, 

Ryan Jipson and fiancee, Amy, Charity Cole and husband, Chris, Joshua Worcester and wife, Darrolyn, Terry Worcester, and Deidre Farnham and husband, Dennis. Carroll is survived by 17 great-grandchildren, Hailey, Jakob, Austin, Chase, McKenna, Gavin, Abigail, Arianna, Terry Brian, Isaac, Cameron, Wyatt, Jacob, Alexis, Dominick, Dylan and Dennis. Carroll is also survived by two sisters, Georgie Spinney and Joyce Lancaster and husband Ollie. Carroll is also survived by several nieces and nephews. Carroll was predeceased by his wife of 53 years, Shirley. He was also predeceased by a brother, Kenneth; and parents.
