He was a graduate of St. Teresa of Avila School and Cardinal McCloskey Memorial High School, and was employed for many years by the New York State Court of Appeals. He enjoyed cooking and gardening and spending time with his grandchildren. He also was a communicant of the former St. Teresa of Avila Church.

Carroll; his children Jennifer Badi of Albany, Brian Carroll of Slingerlands, and Daniel Carroll (Moira) of Burnt Hills; his brother James Carroll (Diane) of Feura Bush; his sister Eileen Rosen (Elliott) of Albany; his grandchildren Lawrence Badi, Jr., Dylan and Maria Badi, and Brenden and Zachary Carroll; and by several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his grandson Anthony F. Badi.

Please accept my condolences, prayers and thoughts on Fred’s passing. We were colleagues at the Court of Appeals for many years. We had some lively chats sharing recipes and gardening tips. Some of my favorites came from his Maine Diner Cookbook. While I am sure that his health issues caused him to have difficult days, in my day to day association with him, he never inflicted his discomfort on those about him. He was a good, gentle, sharing man whose family was his center.
May the Good Lord be good to him.
