John H. Garrison

John H. Garrison, of Okemos, MI, passed away on November 30, 2021, at the age of 78.

He is survived by Ellie, his loving wife of 55 years, son Timothy (Eve) Garrison, daughter Jennifer Shaw, another son, and his treasured grandchildren, Ben, Jarod, Adreanna, Clohe, Gregory, Kayleigh, and Ashley.

He was the loving son of Ben and Eva Garrison, brother and brother-in-law of the late Maureen Zack, Faith (Sanford) Freeman, Cookie Bakke, and Gerald (Elaine) Radloff. He will also be missed by his many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunt, and all who knew him.

John was a Master Mason, and a member of B'nai B'rith, Mensa, and MHSAA (in many sports). One of his greatest pleasures in life (besides his 9 dogs) was playing Santa Claus at the Meridian Mall and in the community, always trying to bring smiles to children's faces.

Private family services will be conducted by Rabbi Amy Bigman at Gorsline-Runciman Funeral Home, Wednesday, December 8, 2021 at 1:00 p.m.
