Shirling Dale Garrison Obituary
Shirling Dale Garrison left this world a better place Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014, at age 79 after a life well lived. Celebration of life: Will be held June 14, with details at a later date. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in honor of Shirling Dale Garrison to the or the University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy, in care of Susan Brown, 2409 University Ave. A1900, Austin, Texas 78712. Born in Thackerville, Okla., he and his family moved to Texas to his favorite small town of Three Rivers. He graduated from the University of Texas School of Pharmacy in 1956. He became a Texas Ex life member and his favorite color was always burnt orange. After serving in the Army, he settled in Fort Worth. He and Paul Trantham operated Weaver's Pharmacy, which was his professional home for many years. Serving as president of the Tarrant County Pharmaceutical Association from 1969-1970, he was presented with the association's Life Achievement Award in 1997. His profession was pharmacy, but his passion was his family and friends. He and his wife, Ginger, found a loving, lasting friendship traveling with Glenda and Jim Mixon for many years finding wonders under the sea and in the beautiful places they visited. The Cordone Group and his childhood friends lasted his lifetime. His happiest holiday was Christmas morning with family, friends, cinnamon rolls and champagne. Having two wonderful daughters, Tracey and Jill, he decided two more would add twice the fun, and Robin Crisman and Rhonda Hammond came into the family. The family grew and fun was added when Jill married Chris Buydos and grandson Trevor was born. Many wonderful friends he met through family and his profession brought joy into his life. Survivors: Left to remember are his wife of 52 years, Ginger; children, Tracey of Dural, Australia, Jill, Chris, Trevor of Old Lyme, Conn.; sister, Leatrice's family; cousin, Joyce; and many friends.
