CHARLES H. GARRISON, III
(1959 - 2014)
Charles H. Garrison III "Chuck" died unexpectedly on January 15, 2014 at his home in Long Beach, CA. He was our brother, our friend and a gift from above. Chuck graduated from NCSU in 1981 with a degree in engineering. He was a US Army officer for four years, an airborne Ranger, and his passion for the deep waters led him to dive school in Panama City, FL, achieving the rank of Captain. Chuck was an underwater engineer holding a PE license in 10 states. He received his Master's degree at GWU and most recently, worked for the Port of Long Beach. Chuck was an avid runner and enjoyed bicycling, hiking, skateboarding, swimming, diving for lobster, home construction projects, and collecting art. His philanthropy efforts helped others with their dream for a higher education. Chuck is survived by four sisters, two brothers, two nephews, three nieces and numerous friends. His smile was magical and he touched many lives; he will be missed by us all. Services will be held at Arlington National Cemetery on July 17, 2014.
