Obituary Condolences

LONERGAN, Garrett James His warmth and wit touched everyone he met, which is why the sudden death of Garrett James Lonergan, on July 11, has left his loved ones heartbroken. He was just 28 years old. Garrett was the son of the late Randi and Kevin Lonergan of CA. He is survived: by his sister, Deveney Lonergan-Stenger of FL, his brother, Kevin and Sister In Law, Kimberly, nieces, Lindsey and Katelyn Lonergan of CA, and brother, Dolan Lonergan of CA. He was a friend to many, and a cherished cousin. Born in Plano, Texas, Garrett lived most of his life in the San Francisco Bay Area, and spent childhood summers in Cape Cod. He had recently moved to Arizona, where he had previously attended college at Arizona State. He was a smart young man, with a quirky sense of humor, who never understood why people paid for bottled water when you can get it for free. He was pragmatic, but passionate where it mattered. Garrett wasn't one to grab the spotlight, but he added an element to the atmosphere that was noticeably missed if he wasn't there. His gentle spirit was calming and enjoyable to be around. Garrett was a great listener, a gifted writer, a good friend, and a loving brother. His love for ketchup was only matched with the bond he had with his two nieces, Lindsey,(13) and Katelyn, "KK",(9). He dyed Easter Eggs with them, watched Star Wars on Family movie night, and put thought into each gift he presented. His special connection with KK, his, "birthday twin" was so pure, it truly warmed your heart to see them together. A man who loved comedian, George Carlin and comedy in general, Garrett often used humor to frame the hills and valleys of his own life. One of his favorite hobbies was baseball, especially the San Francisco Giants. He was such a student of the sport, he could breakdown any game of any team, give you stats on players, and even argue why SF's one-time struggling rookie, Brandon Belt, deserved his spot on the team. Garrett was deeply loyal, and as history proves, he was right about Belt. It's only fitting that Garrett leaves this world in First place in his Fantasy Baseball League. Nevertheless, he won so many of us over here on Earth, it's still hard to accept that he was, "called up" so soon. The wake for Garrett will be held from 4-7pm on Thursday, July 21st, at Chapman, Cole and Gleason Funeral home. 475 Main Street, Falmouth, MA. Funeral services will be held at 10am on Friday, Jul 22 at Saint Patrick's Church, 511 Main Street, Falmouth. Burial is at Saint Anthony's Cemetery, 167 East Falmouth Highway (Route 28), East Falmouth. Reception to follow at Coonamessett Inn, 311 Gifford Street, Falmouth, MA.
