The Rev. Garrett was born on the same farmland on Feb. 18, 1917. As a child, he grew to love and appreciate this land. He farmed it with his late wife, Lois, and their two children before answering a call to Christian ministry. He served as pastor for Baptist churches throughout Virginia for 26 years until his retirement in 1980. He was a devoted pastor and made lifelong friends throughout his ministry. After retiring, he and his wife returned to Moss Neck Farm and again made it their home.

He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Cheryl and Don Seay of Moss Neck; granddaughter and husband, Amy and Rick Mayes of Roanoke; and grandson John G. Garrett III of Utah.
