Garrison, Robert D.


Robert D. Garrison, devoted husband, father, grandfathe­r, brother, and a man of deep faith passed into eternal life on Friday, June 19 following complicati­ons from a recent illness. He was able to return to the home he and his wife Connie worked so hard to build in Saddlebroo­k Ranch, AZ, where he spent his final days with family and

An avid golfer, Bob was a long-time member of Ridgemoor Country Club and the Union League Club of Chicago. Together with his son, Montie, also an Iowa alum, he delighted in the annual intrafamil­y collegiate sports rivalries that pitted his beloved Hawkeyes against the Cyclones of Iowa State, of which his daughters Elizabeth, Maria and grandson Brock are proud alumni.

Bob was happily married for 24 years to the love of his life, Connie. As true soulmates, they enjoyed traveling the world and experienci­ng life to the fullest — wonderful wine, fabulous food, the arts, architectu­re, politics, current affairs and world events. Bob had a wonderful sense of humor and a kind heart that will be dearly missed but never forgotten. He was a good listener and always made everyone feel important and at ease.

Bob is survived by his wife Connie, daughters Elizabeth (Jerry) Hunt, Maria (David Kohn) Garrison, son Montague (Yorivenia) Garrison, grandson Brock Hunt and sisters Judie Garrison Hoyt and Diane (Robert) Fuller. He was preceded in death by his parents Harold Arthur Garrison and Laura Josephine Dooley Garrison.

Services and a celebratio­n of Bob’s life are being planned for a later time. The family welcomes donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Bob’s memory. Rest in peace “Baby Boy,” “Dooleybird,” Dad and “B.O.B.” You had a wonderful life and we all love you!
