Eric A. Garrison (1953-2022)
Eric A. Garrison passed away at home on Sunday, August 7, 2022 with his family by his side.
Eric will be remembered for the stories he told on repeat. There was no stopping him from showing up at the grand kids schools to tell these stories. He wanted to make sure to pass them down for future generations to enjoy even if, at times, they were highly inappropriate. His love, and patience for his children, grandchildren and ALL the world’s children were unparalleled. He enjoyed a good conversation with a nice gin or iced tea. He was the coolest person to hang out with and the type of man that would drop everything at the drop of a hat to chauffer his grown children and their friends around town for an evening of bar hopping to ensure everyone made it home safely or carpooling his grandchildren to their MANY activities. He never said no. He enjoyed being outdoors, spending time at the lake, fishing, and cooking (heavy on the spices). The memories Eric created with his family and friends on Earth will last an eternity.
Eric was preceded in death by his parents, Calvran and Marjorie Garrison. He is survived by his spouse of 44 years, Carol “Tess” Garrison; three children: Gena Agron (Todd); Shea Wilper (Jeff); John Garrison; his five grandchildren: Ashlyn, Grace, Johnny, Bo, and Xander; his sister Kyle Carson (Chris), and brother Kevin Garrison.
