Laurence Bradner Carroll III, 73

SCARBOROUGH - Laurence Bradner Carroll III, a young age 73, died May 27, 2018, at Gosnell Memorial Hospice House from metastatic cancer, diagnosed only last September. A gentle, loving, elegant, and competent man loved by many, he handled this last challenge with his usual great dignity, love, and consideration for his family.

Son of Elizabeth Longstreth Carroll and the late Laurence Carroll Jr., he grew up in Hagerstown, Md., with his beloved younger sister, Janet Stanford.

Always interested in music, he mastered piano and clarinet. A U.S. Navy scholarship to Yale in 1963, provided a place on the lightweight crew, a gig as a Yale radio DJ, and a degree in engineering and applied sciences.

To complete his five-year military obligation, Lanny served as lieutenant at the naval nuclear power headquarters in Washington D.C. At the same time, he attend Georgetown Law School at night. Lanny moved to Cape Elizabeth in 1973, and practiced law in Portland until his retirement.

In 1985, Lanny married Nancy Apel Altenburg, and they blended their families of five children. Lanny and Nancy shared love and life, enjoying rich friendships, travel (including a trip to the Galapagos in April), tent camping, hiking, and time with their growing family. For the last ten years they divided their time between Scarborough and Naples, Fla., where Lanny was an active member of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples.

Lanny is survived by his beloved wife, Nancy, and four of his children and their spouses: Garth and Heather Altenburg, Amy and Allison Scobie-Carroll, Alison and Justin Carignan, and Stephanie and Johnathan Bernard; as well as his nine grandchildren. He was predeceased by his father, Laurence Carroll, and daughter, Julie Altenburg.
