LITTLE RIVER, S.C. – Carroll M. Chapman Jr., 73, passed away peacefully at the Embrace Hospice Home on June 5, 2021. He was the son of Carroll Miller Chapman Sr. and Beverly (Carney) Chapman of Augusta.

Carroll, affectionately known as “Buddy,” grew up in Augusta, and Arlington, Mass. where he excelled at academics and athletics.

Carroll worked as a manufacturer’s representative for a commercial food service equipment company. He was an avid sports fan and loved the New England Patriots. Buddy treasured time spent with family and friends.

Carroll had a keen sense of humor and would light up any social occasion. Some of his favorite memories were his family gatherings in Annisquam, where there was sure to be an all day crouquet tournament and several rounds of dominos after dinner.

Carroll lived his final years in South Carolina near his son, Michael, daughter-in-law, Christal, and his grandchildren, Caleb and Colbie Chapman.

He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
