— Dr. Thomas G. Garrison died Dec. 5.

Born April 4, 1930, in Posey County, he was a son of the late Casey and Ella Garrison.

Dr. Garrison was a long-time educator and community leader who was instrumental in the development of vocational and alternative school programs throughout central Indiana. He graduated with BS and MS degrees in agriculture from Purdue University, an MS in counseling from Ball State University, and an Ed D from Indiana University Bloomington.

Among his many accomplishments, he received the FFA Honorary Farmer Award in 1994, and the Sagamore of the Wabash award in 1995.

He served as a U.S. Navy medic during the Korean conflict, and as commander and chaplain of the Brownsburg American Legion Post 331. He served on the school boards of St. Malachy School and Cardinal Ritter High School, was president of the College Avenue Condo Association, and has served on the Brownsburg Park Board and as a Brownsburg Police Commissioner.

He is a member of the Indiana Retired Teachers Association and has been a member of St. Malachy Catholic Church since 1966.

Survivors include his wife of 61 years, Mary K. (Catherine); sons Mike (Shari), and Greg (Niki); daughters Becky Garrison, Marty (Ray) Dunn, Mary Beth (Sean) Mullen, Cathy (Doug) Brinkerhoff, and Joanie (Brian) Stader; and grandchildren Tiffany (Brian) Giles, Michael (Amy) Garrison, Patrick (Faye) Rodriguez, Erin Rodriguez, Kyle (Jeff) Tutterow, Luke Garrison, Curtis Trujillo, Connor Stader, Brock Stader, Garrison Brinkerhoff, and Kristen Brinkerhoff; great-grandchildren Taylor Traut, Jake Giles, Hank Giles, Tatum Tutterow, Tenley Tutterow, Ella Garrison, Finnegan Rodriguez, and Naqiya Rodriguez; and step great-grandchildren Rhiannon Dunn and Freddie Barker.

Preceding him in death were brothers Bob Garrison and Ted Garrison; a sister, Gladys Davis; granddaughters Vida Dannielle Garrison and Brittany Channel Dalton; and a son-in-law, Steven Brian Naanes.

A Mass of Christian burial was Monday at St. Malachy Catholic Church.
