Robert Edward Carroll, age 65 of Prescott, affectionately known as “Butch,” died November 27, 2023 with the ones he loved by his side. Butch was born on October 16, 1958, in Plum City, WI; the son of Leroy and Elaine (Myers) Carroll. He was raised in Plum City attending St. John’s parochial School before graduating from Plum City High School. He was married to the former Roxane ‘Roxie’ (Obermueller) Hoffman.
Butch spent a good portion of his professional career as a Maintenance Cleaner in the airline industry, working diligently for Northwest Airlines. He took great pride in his work, ensuring that the airplanes he serviced were kept in pristine condition. Moreover, he also worked as a roofer for Twin Rivers Roofing, a deck hand for Upper River and Capital Barge Companies, and more recently in maintenance for Walmart.
Outside of his profession, Butch lived life to the fullest. He enjoyed spending his leisure time engaging in various activities such as dancing, gardening, golfing, and hunting. He had a passion for fishing and was a devoted fan of the Green Bay Packers. Butch also had a competitive spirit and could often be found playing Euchre, where he would impressively win against opponents.
Butch is survived by his beloved wife, Roxane ‘Roxie’ Carroll; and their children, Jason Hoffman and Heather Hoffman. He was also a proud grandfather to his granddaughter, Brittany Hoffman. Additionally, he is survived by his siblings: Tom (Lavonne) Carroll, Marg (Sy) Vanderloop, Vicky Samuelson, Mike (Mary) Carroll, Terry (Tom Horn) Sharpen, Nancy Rice, Ed (Dawn) Carroll, Lisa (Roger) Anderson, and Jackie (Pete) Unser. He is preceded in death by his parents Leroy and Elaine Carroll; grandparents Roy and Anna Carroll; Galen and Mary Meyers; and his parents-in-law James and June Obermueller; and sister-in-law Susan Johnson. Butch is preceded in death by his siblings Susan (infant), Richard Carroll, Patrick Carroll and James Carroll.
A Celebration of Life for Butch Carroll will be held on Saturday, December 2nd, from 1 to 3pm at Old Ptaceks Event Center in Prescott, WI. The gathering will be followed by a prayer service at 3pm. In accordance with his wishes, a private interment will take place at St. Joseph Cemetery. Memorials may be made to the discretion of his family. The O’Connell Family Funeral Home of Prescott is honored to be entrusted with his Celebration Of Life.

  1. Butch you had such important insights about life. (And some damn funny ones too.) Which were, somehow always important as well. I think of our relationship in a paradox: I didn’t know you as well as I would have liked, and at the same time I knew you well. Months or years could go by without seeing you, and whenever I walked into a room after the time had elapsed, you had such a warm way of making the hug/embrace so loving and familiar that it was as if your heart and presence were timeless. (they still are, by the way.) In my fond memories of you, I see you with the biggest smile on your face and some clever anecdotal words to express with all you came into contact. You were one of a kind. Thank you for teaching us so much. Until we meet again…

  2. I am so sorry to hear about your husband’s passing, Roxie. When I saw you recently at our class reunion, we were discussing your Mom passing on and now you have another great loss!!
    I’m sending my deepest sympathies and keeping you in my prayers.
    May you feel God’s love and strength around you.

  3. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family Roxie. May memories bring you joy, family and friends bring you comfort and the love of our Lord bring you peace. We are keeping you in our thoughts, prayers and hearts.
