Turning Point Mourns the Loss of Kevin F. Carroll

February 25, 2016

Kevin F. CarrollTurning Point is deeply saddened to share the passing of Kevin F. Carroll, a valued former board member and avid supporter of Turning Point for many years. With a long career on Wall Street, retiring as CEO of Gintelco, a financial service firm in Manhattan, Mr. Carroll brought a wealth of knowledge and leadership that helped Turning Point grow to become the institution it is today.

Mr. Carroll passionately championed the mission of Turning Point and generously supported the organization in various capacities. He deeply cared about the clients Turning Point serves. A regular presence, he facilitated several discussion groups for Turning Point clients where he shared his personal experience of having a loved one struggling with addiction and motivated them to continue to strive for a life of sobriety.

Mr. Carroll and his wife Bonnie didn't just support Turning Point over the past several years, but they inspired others to do so as well. They created the KJ Carroll Fund in honor of their late son, Kevin (KJ), who dreamed of becoming a counselor and helping others break the devastating cycle of addiction. The Carrolls also established a rooftop sanctuary for clients, a place of peace and tranquility, in memory of KJ Carroll.

With his generosity, support, and leadership, Mr. Carroll leaves a powerful legacy. His impact will touch the thousands of lives of the men and women Turning Point serves each year.
