NAVID "G" GARSHASB
Navid "G" Garshasb passed away on September 04, 2013. After an operation to remove a brain tumor in 2003, the doctors gave him only months to live. During the past 10 years, he continually proved the medical diagnosis wrong and showed his will and determination to survive. However, after recovering from two strokes, in November 2011 and most recently in January 2013, as well as battling a rare blood disorder since 2011, G finally lost his final fight. Navid leaves to cherish his memory, his loving wife Joani, his two sons Shahine (Shawn) and Andrew (Andy), as well as his mother Pari, brother Masoud and sister, Farideh. Navid grew up in Shiraz, Iran, moving to the U.S. in 1978 at the age of 12. He attended Nottingham High School and entered the Air Force in October 1986 where he spent nineteen years, and was medically discharged in 2005. After his medical retirement, Navid and Joani made their permanent home in Navarre, FL. A trusted volunteer of the Navarre United Methodist Church, Navid was baptized Christian in 2006. Funeral services will be held at 2 PM, Monday, September 23, 2013, at the Hurlburt Field Chapel. Full military honors will follow at Hurlburt Field Airpark.
