Charles Edward Garland
Charles Edward Garland was born October 19, 1945 and passed away at his home on Wednesday, May 5, 2021.
He was retired from Murray Ohio. He attended Central Christian Fellowship in Hohenwald and was an active hunter, with a particular love of coon hunting; a love that he freely shared with anyone who wanted to go with him.
Charles’ kind, patient but humble spirit was evident to anyone he ever met. His love and support for his three daughters, who he referred to as Charlie’s Angels, was unconditionally apparent. Later in life, when he was blessed with grandchildren and great-grandchildren, he shared those same traits with them. He was always loving, guiding, correcting and sharing with them. Always guided by his faith, Charles’ legacy as a husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother, son, friend, and hunting buddy was one of loyalty, faith and most importantly love.
He was preceded in death by his parents: George Lasson and Lillie Beatrice Self Garland; two brothers: J. W. Garland and James Garland; nephew: Joel Garland; and niece: Angela Garland.
He is survived by his wife of 50 years: Shirley Kathryn Garland; daughters: Karen (Terry) Cotham of Hohenwald and Mitzi (David) Chapman and Jill McDonald, both of Summertown; nine grandchildren: Ashley Arnold, Chaz McKinney, Trent Chapman, Ty Chapman, Ramsey McDonald, Lily Kate McDonald, Jasmine (Louie) Chapin, Dane Cothan, and Grey Cothan; seven great-grandchildren: Brier Arnold, Lakelyn Arnold, Weatherby McKinney, Amelia Chapman, Eli Chapin, Will Chapin, and Ace Chapin; one sister: Lucille Gray of Summertown, TN; and two brothers: Howard Garland of Columbia, TN and Ray Garland of Lawrenceburg, TN.
