Obituary

Our beloved father, James Garrison, Jr., went to be with the Lord February 23, 2012 following a courageous battle with cancer. James will be sadly missed by his daughter's friends and family, but will be remembered as a great fisherman, hunter and trapper. Also he loved the outdoors, birds and flowers. On his 80th birthday we released helium balloons and he watched them float away with great joy. In celebration of his life we invite friends and family to join us Monday at 2:30 p.m. at Garland Brook Cemetery to say Farwell and release balloons in his memory. Arrangements were made by Myers~Reed Chapel on 25th Street. Online condolences may...
