Mr. Garrett was born in Atmore, AL, and resided in Bay Springs, FL. His occupation was a millwright. He took pride in his work. Sammy was an outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish.

Sammy’s friends were just as important as family to him. Families including Lewis, Caro, McCullough, Price, Perry, Martin, Gindl, Hall and too many to mention. You know who you are and the Garrett family will continue to value your friendship.
