Garrett James Sturdivant
March 15, 1980 - April 21, 2023

Garrett left our earthly presence way too soon. He loved and enjoyed his family, both the one he was born into and the group of friends known as the Thic Family. He was one of a kind and like his older brother, Rick, who passed away a few years ago, he did march to his own drum. The difference is that Thic Man was leading the band.

He wasn’t able to pursue his music interests for awhile because of his breathing problems, but his legacy lives on with the many people he met and encouraged over the years. His own shows were always well attended and enjoyed by all. He loved to perform.

Garrett was seriously ill as a baby but he fought hard and became a happy, healthy, rambunctious kid.

Everyone whose life he touched will keep him in their hearts.

He leaves behind his father, Del Sturdivant; his mother, Julie Wilks; and his brother Brian Sturdivant. He also has aunts, uncles, cousins, a nephew and a special niece in California, Oregon, Washington and Idaho who mourn his loss. He also left his treasured companion, his cat Rainbow, who shared his world.

He is leaving a void in our lives but he left many fun and happy memories to remember him by. Gone but not forgotten.
