Carroll was the oldest living and longest living heart transplant recipient.I'm probably not qualified to post.. never met him.. but.. Every time I've seen him on TV I found myself paying close attention, even in the most commercial of events. I'll admit I don't know the details but it seems he has been in "bad" health for decades. Couldn't tell by listening to him, not an ounce of feeling sorry for himself. Always excited at the task at hand. Full life, no regrets. We all should be so lucky. RIP legend.
As someone said in another article I saw a while ago he was "running on aftermarket parts". I chuckled.
