Carroll began building the well-known restaurant, located at 15011 Marine Dr., in 1985.
“We all knew him as a delicate, hard-working man who was always eager to give feedback and make his vision of the world a reality,” the Facebook post states.
“His strong presence and willingness to go the extra mile for his friends and family enabled the creation of more businesses within all walks of life – our entire extended family.”
No one from the restaurant was ready to speak to Global News on Friday about Carroll’s death.
In the Facebook post, staff said they know Carroll is looking down on his legacy with a wheatgrass smoothie and a grass-fed beef skewer in hand.
