Carroll Henry Ouellette

WINSLOW – Carroll Henry Ouellette, 79, of Winslow passed away on March 24, 2021 at Inland Hospital. Carroll, the son of Henry and Viola (Bourgoin) Ouellette was born on July 6, 1941 in Fort Kent.

Carroll grew up in Fort Kent where he met his life-long love, Phyllis, and they got married in 1962. Soon after, they moved to Winslow in 1964 to search for new opportunities and begin a future as a family. He was a hard worker, landing himself a supervisor position in the spinning room at Ski Land Woolen Mill, where he worked for 21 years. Carroll, however, had dreams and goals to open his own family run business. Determined to do so, Carroll began Carroll’s Auto Body Shop in 1976. Both he and his wife worked countless hours to grow this business into the successful company it has become today. After his son Michael was old enough to join in the business operations, Carroll and Mike became a partnership changing the name of the business to Carroll and Son Body Shop. He enjoyed working alongside his wife Phyllis and son Michael.

When Carroll was not in the shop working countless hours on vehicles or towing wrecked cars, he was out at his camp on Belgrade Lakes fishing and enjoying the outdoors. He could be seen out on his deck, by the water, enjoying a cigar on a nice sunny day. In his earlier years, he enjoyed going on trips with his beloved wife to Aruba, Las Vegas, and Florida.

Carroll is survived by his daughter, Louise Irwin (Ouellette) and her husband Paul Irwin of Winslow and his son Michael Ouellette and partner Lynn Pelletier of Benton. He is also survived by five grandchildren, Jonathan Irwin and wife Amy of Oakland, Katie Souviney and husband Cody of China, Kristopher Denis and partner Christina of Benton, Nicholas Denis and partner Evelyn of Benton, and Zachary Denis and partner Molly of Benton. He is survived by four great-grandchildren, Colton and Brantley Souviney of China, Natalie Irwin of Oakland and Parker Redlevske of Oakland. Carrol is survived by his sister Norma (Ouellette) Bonenfant of Fort Kent, Nancy (Ouellette) Dubay of Fort Kent, Gilmay (Ouellette) Power of Augusta.

Carroll is predeceased by his wife, Phyllis (Theriault) Ouellette’ as well as his oldest daughter, Linda (Ouellette) Denis of Benton. He is predeceased by his father, Henry and mother Viola Ouelette of Fort Kent. He is also predeceased by his brothers, Roger Ouellette of Waterville, Bert Ouellette of South China as well as his sister, Viola Ortiz of Vassalboro.
