-------------------------
Floyd Bruce Garrett Jr. was survived by a wife and son if you would like to add that to the memorial. The wife was Mary Virginia (Corbin) Garrett and they were married 17 Jun 1942 in Reno Nevada. A son was later born to Virginia in 1943 and named Floyd Bruce Garrett. Mary Virginia later remarried a Winfrey. Hal

Their suggestion:
-------------------------
My apologies. My earlier suggested said that Floyd and Virginia had a son. That information is incorrect. Floyd did have a wife Virginia (Corbin) that late married a Winfield. She is buried in the Somerivlle Cemetery in Somerville, Fayette Co., Tennessee.
