Carroll began building the well-known restaurant, located at 15011 Marine Dr., in 1985.
“We all knew he was a cheeky, hard-working man, always ready to give his opinion and make his world view a reality,” the Facebook post said.
“Her powerful presence and willingness to go the extra mile for her friends and family has made it possible to build several businesses in all walks of life – all of our 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 knew Carroll looked down on his heritage with a wheatgrass smoothie and a hand-fed grass-fed beef kebab.
