GARRISON, Gregory Arthur "Greg" March 23, 1963- November 27, 2014 Gregory Garrison, beloved son, brother, partner, father and grandfather, unexpect- edly passed into the arms of Jesus on Thanksgiving Day. He was born in Spokane on March 23, 1963, to Richard and Celia Garrison and remained a lifetime Spokane resident, attending the Mead School District. He was very close to his parents and loved helping them in many ways. They cherished Greg and will miss him dearly. Greg left behind three siblings, Debbie, Rick and Sandy. They loved their youngest brother and have many joyful memories together. Greg ended his journey with the last love of his life, Cheryl Moore. He is survived by his children, Eric and Keili; the mother of his children, Kim Jones; and their seven grandchildren. He is also survived by former wife Dena McCartney and her children. His family is so grateful for the time they had with him. He was a caring and compassionate man who was a friend to all. Greg will be remembered for his smile, quick laugh and the jovial, childlike way he enjoyed life. He was always a bit mischievous and fun to be around. Greg loved the outdoors and enjoyed camping, riding his motorcycle, gardening, walking his dog and spending time with his friends. His passion was working with wood. He was a master woodworker and owner of Greg's Finishing. He breathed new life into pianos and antique pieces. His skillful work is a legacy enjoyed and treasured by many. You are invited to a Memorial Celebrating his Life. It will be held on Saturday, December 13 at 10:30 AM, at Whitworth Community Presbyterian Church. Per the family's request, donations may be made to the Deacon's Fund at the church or the Union Gospel Mission.
