He spent his early years in Lake View graduating from Lake View High School with the class of 1961.

Garland worked hard to provide for his family as a farmer, raising hogs and farming the land. He was a conservator of the land and received several conservation awards. He also made time for enjoying his six grandchildren, golfing, fishing, gambling, and traveling the United States. Garland had been to every continental state except Maine and enjoyed traveling each Christmas to Texas to visit Judy’s parents. He will be dearly missed by those that knew and loved him.
