Jack Eugene Garrison, 77 of Springfield, passed away peacefully on September 19, 2023.

His adventurous spirit led him to serve in the Air Force, where he made significant contributions to our nation. After leaving the military, Jack focused on his career, first in Agriculture sales, and later becoming a successful business man, owning several business. Throughout his life, Jack held many roles, but his most cherished title was that of a loving father.

Jack’ s memory will forever be cherished by his son Lyman, daughter Jennifer, and son Carl. Their lives have been forever enriched by their father’s unwavering love and support. He will also be fondly remembered by his extended family, friends, and all those whose lives he touched.

The family invites you to a celebration of Jack’s life, doing one of his favorite things, singing Karaoke, at Prima’s Mexican Kitchen on South Glenstone with a time to gather and share stories from 3-5 pm, with Karaoke starting a 6pm, on Saturday, September 23, 2023.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Greenlawn Funeral Home South.
