Carlos L. Garriott, November 1, 1931~August 6, 2015
Carlos was born in Fayetteville on November 1, 1931 to Luther Garriott and Jeanette Dodd Durning. He married Juana Florence Jordan on September 3, 1954 and they were married for 58 years. He is preceded in death by his parents; and his sister, June Lankford.
He is survived by his children, Larry Garriott and Rocky Garriott of Fayetteville; one daughter, Carma McAleer and her husband, Michael of Eureka Springs; his 6 grandchildren, Jason and James Garriott, Matthew and Katie Garriott and Anna and Cora Lewis; and his sister, Linda Garriott Phillips of Springdale; and many nieces and nephews whom he loved dearly.
Carlos worked at the University of Arkansas physical plant for 49 years as a painter and the paint shop foreman. He loved the outdoors, camping, hunting and fishing. He also loved his farm and gardening, raising cattle and cutting his hay. He could fix anything and also liked anything to do with cars from rebuilding motors to the final paint job.
Carlos’ life would not have been complete without his friends, and spent many hours with them just hanging out in his shop. He was a very kind generous and loving man.
