Obituary provided by Cornwell Funeral Home of Danville

Note: In the obituary of Jimmie's father, Cecil James Garrison, his mother's maiden name is spelled "Light." In Jimmie's obituary, his mother's name is spelled "Lite." I am using Light since that was how it was spelled in his father's obituary.
