I was sorry to have missed Jerry's memorial. He was a fine person who was very forgiving of my mistakes when I was a high school senior working for him at KLMT. I was the first of many that he hired.

Dear JoAnn and Family,
Beth and I are so sorry for your loss. Jerry was, and is in our hearts, a great guy. Beth, through her association with you at the school, and Jerry and I coaching Little League together and often seeing ya'll at the golf course, will always be among our fond memories.
Jerry will always be remembered by us, and many others, as a truly genuine person and friend. May this knowledge and God's loving hand be solace to you and your family in the days to come.

I'm so sorry to hear of Mr Garrison's passing. He was a gem for sure! He taught drivers ed when I was in high school, my driving partner (Nancy Nutt) and I tested his reaction time with the third brake more than once! I think he passed us so he wouldn't have to ride with us again! Haha He will be very missed by all who knew him!!! RIP Mr Garrison!!!! Keeping the family in my thoughts and prayers!!!
