Obituary of Alvin Lamar Garrett

ALVIN L. GARRETT, age 90, passed away unexpectedly on January 26, 2024 from heart failure. He was born in Pahokee, Florida on July 10, 1933, to Birdie (nee Conley) and Clyde Garrett.

Garrett, Tucker, GA, and stepdaughters Kathy Carr (Larry), St. Mary, WV, and Sandra Messer (Buddy), Huntsville, AL.
