Paul Garriott Obituary

Paul Michael Garriott (better known as Pops), age 77, of Heber Springs, Arkansas, passed away peacefully in his home on Friday, December 22, 2023, surrounded by many loving family members. Paul was born to his father, Wayne Garriott, and his loving mommy, Clara Margaret Sullivan Garriott on May 19, 1946. 

Paul was a welder by trade before retirement, and enjoyed tinkering in the woodworking shop whenever he got a chance once the boredom set in. He made many treasures for his family members and friends.  He also enjoyed his mission trips to the Dominican Republic.

Pops was preceded in death by his wife, Bonnie Gale Garriott (Maw) on July 21, 2023; his parents; two brothers, Freddie Garriott and Billy Garriott; and two sisters, Mary Ruth Jackson and Barbara Molden.
