Carroll Battin Obituary

Carroll Donaldson Battin of Green Forest went to his heavenly home on Thursday, August 10, 2023, joining his wife Jennifer and loved ones who have gone before him. He was born May 24, 1942, to Earl and Gertrude Neal Battin. He was a lifelong resident of Green Forest.

On May 11, 1963, Carroll was united in marriage to the love of his life, Jennifer Sue Mowbray, and together they raised 2 children, Mark and Shelly.

Carroll was a hard-working man, a master craftsman known throughout the community for his amazing woodworking skills, building cabinets, rustic style furniture including nightstands, beds, and dressers, and novelty crafts such as toy trucks and gift shop type items. If it was made from wood, he could build it! He also enjoyed gardening, reading, and spending time with his family.
