BELFAST — Carroll Francis Patten Jr. passed away peacefully Sept. 10, 2021, after a brief illness.

Carroll was born in Orland, the son of Erma (Gray) Patten and Carroll Patten Sr.

Carroll was proud to have served his country in the Army. He continued serving his community as a bus driver for local school districts and through his work at the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office. Many students will fondly remember their rides on his school bus because he made the extra effort to learn all their names and make each one feel special. Carroll loved music, loved to dance and sing and would often share his rendition of “Little Joe” anytime it was requested.

Carroll was predeceased by his parents, Erma and Carroll Patten; his daughter Theresa; sisters Helen, Angie and Clara; as well as his brother Kelsey.

Carroll is survived by his brothers, Russell and Alvertie, and his sister, Donna.  He is also survived by his children, Melissa Roberts and her husband, Steven; Angel Cyr and her husband, Jeffrey; Tamatha Fuller and her husband, Daniel; Carroll “Rowdy” Patten and his wife Angie; and Kevin Patten Sr.

He is also survived by his grandchildren, Zachary Patten and his wife, Ashley; Kevin and Terry Patten; Vanessa and Natalie Roberts; Elida Dickey and her husband, Austin; Sadee, Emma and Silas Mehuren; Drake, Delaney and Alex Westover; Brandon Cyr and his wife, Megan; Danielle Cyr; as well as his great-grandchildren, Maezee, Matthew, Kim, James and Aidan.

A graveside service will be held Sunday, Sept. 19, at 3 p.m. at Grove Cemetery in Belfast.
