|Troy Garrett was born in Old Vernon, Louisiana on February 13, 1920, and passed away November 15, 2003. He is survived by his wife, Patsy, sons, Doug and David, and daughter, Debbie Loggin, a brother, Rev. James Garrett, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Brother Garrett’s father, Rev. J. T. Garrett, was a long-time minister in our Conference and two brothers, Roy and James were also ministers.
Troy loved life, including the outdoors, gardening, hunting and fishing. He had a love for southern gospel music and the churches he served enjoyed a diversity in music and ministry. The last church he served, Beulah United Methodist Church, enjoyed growth both numerically and spiritually during his tenure. He led many to Christ on a personal basis, and while membership and attendance increased, a new family life building was built and was debt free at the time of completion.
Brother Garrett loved his country and served during World War II. He loved his Lord and church until the end.
