Harold D. “Shy” Garrett, age 90 of West Carrollton, passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 23, 2021 at Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton. He was born on June 21, 1931 in Pennington Gap, VA, the son of the late Mack & Maggie (Fleenor) Garrett.

Mr. Garrett honorably served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean War efforts. He was a retired employee of Kroger with over 25 years of service; and was an active member of Miamisburg Assembly of God for many years.

Harold had such a sense of humor and could make anyone smile or laugh. He loved his family, his friends at Canterbury Court, playing cards, and playing the lottery and slot machines. He was a man of faith that was saved by God as an adult and lived everyday after in the Lord’s light. Shortly after Harold took his last breath here on Earth, Thursday, September 23rd at 10:00 a.m., the sun came shining through the clouds into his room, we are sure that’s the moment he took Jesus’ hand on one side and Betty’s hand on the other.

Preceded in death by the love of his life and wife 65 years Betty S. (Gibson) Garrett, brothers Fred, Dude, Joe and Wayne Garrett, and his son-in-law Christopher Wysong.

Harold will be so very missed by his four loving children Diane Blanton and husband Gary, David Garrett and wife Raelynn, Teresa Thompson and Susan Wysong, his sister Betty Helton, 8 grandchildren Michelle, Michael, Shawn, David, Jr., Samantha, Nikki, Natalie & Jacob, 14 great grandchildren, 1 great great grandson and numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.

A Graveside service with Military Honors will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at Evergreen Cemetery in West Carrollton. Arrangements entrusted to the Swart Funeral Home, West Carrollton.
