He grew up on a family farm in Deming, New Mexico where he learned about hard work.

The Thrash family moved back to Arkansas in the early 1960's where he met his wife and lifelong companion, Meredith. Carroll worked various jobs but dreamed of running his own farm.

He went to the farm daily and worked cattle until his last days.
