Tommy was born on July 9, 1936 in Jamestown, TN and is the son of the late Joseph C. Garrett and Dela Garrett. He served in the U.S. Navy as a Chief Petty Officer for 21 and half years. After leaving the military, Tommy would then go on and become a Lone Shoreman and a well-known notary. He loved to travel and go to races, but he was the happiest when he was cruising in his vette every Sunday. Tommy loved his family and friends, but his dog Sadie held a special place in his heart. He was a living legend and will be missed dearly.
