passed away on Wednesday, July 24, 2013 in Seattle, Washington.Father Carroll was born on November 28, 1931, at the old Cabrini hospital in Seattle. He attended St. Edward's grade school and Seattle Prep, and then entered the Society of Jesus in 1949. He was ordained to the priesthood in Rome in 1962.

Most of his Jesuit years were spent teaching English literature and creative writing at Seattle University.At age 74 -rather amazingly - he became full-time pastor of St. Cecilia's Catholic Church in Bainbridge, where he has served for the last 8 years. Under his leadership the parish healed, revived, and built a whole new grade school facility and parish offices.The recitation of the Holy Rosary will be offered for Father Emmett H.

Family and friends are respectfully invited to attend the Mass of Christian Burial on Monday, July 29 at 7 PM at St. Cecilia Catholic Church on Bainbridge Island.
