Elder Charlie Will Garrett affectionately known as “Chuck” and
“Elder Garrett” was born June 3, 1936 to the loving union of
Dollie Lee Foster-Garrett and Elcanley Garrett in Woodland,
Alabama. He graduated from Randolph County Training School
and served three years in the United States Army. After serving,
He worked for Boeing in Seattle, WA and later retired from
General Motorsin Atlanta, GA.
Charlie committed his life to God at an early age and joined
Union Hill Baptist Church during childhood. He answered the
call to ministry as a young man and continued to preach and
teach until he was called home. He loved some good old
“churchin.” He was a faithful member of Decision Point
Ministries under the leadership of Pastor Chris McNairy. On
April 28, 1985, he was joined in holy matrimony to the late
Brenda Rose Tennie-Garrett.
Charlie loved to fish, play cards, travel, watch tv, and show how
he still had it by “kicking his leg up in the air.
” He would always brag on how he could win a foot race with the “youngsters.” His favorite quote while playing cards was, “You can’t out play me, you just got better cards than I do. ” He loved his family and enjoyed every moment with them. He was full of life and family stories and wanted to share them all. He will truly be missed.
