John's formative years were spent in Memphis, TN. He was a proud member of the 1961 graduating class of Booker T. Washington High School.
John was an outgoing, fun-loving person with a big personality and a remarkable sense of humor. Those who knew and loved John will always remember his infectious smile, generosity, and strong will.

Family members left to cherish his memories are his devoted wife of 56 years Vivian H. Garrett, his daughter, Talya M. Garrett, his son, Tommy D.
