Brentwood resident Lynn Wayne Garrison, 69, passed away Dec. 1, 2010, at Kaiser Hospital in Antioch, California.

A service was held in December at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills and Mr. Garrison was buried near his parents at Forest Lawn.

Mr. Garrison was born August 23, 1941, in Peoria, Illinois, to Paul I. and Rose A. (Fenner) Garrison. His father Paul was a teacher in industrial arts and his mother Rose was a schoolteacher. Lynn had one older sister, Lois Hawkins.

Mr. Garrison had grown up in Iowa before moving to California in 1955. He lived for a number of years in Southern California before moving in 1974 to San Jose, CA and later moved to Brentwood in 2002. He was employed by Lockheed-Martin as an engineer for 42 years, retiring in 2007. In retirement, he enjoyed working on his model train collection.

He is survived by his wife, Sharon, of Brentwood; daughter and son-in-law, Sandra and Matt Dreisbach of Boulder Creek, CA; son and daughter-in-law, Michael and Wendy Garrison of San Jose, CA; grandsons, Brian Garrison of San Jose, CA, Sage and River Dreisbach of Boulder Creek, CA, and many nieces and nephews.

Mr. Garrison was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Lois (Garrison) Hawkins.

Brentwood Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.


"You can shed tears that he is gone,
or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all he's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him only that he is gone,
or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what he'd want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on."
