After high school, Garland went on to serve in the United States Navy during WWII receiving the WWII Victory, Asiatic Pacific and American Area Medals. He retired from National Steel from the boiler plate line. Many will remember Garland for his love of farming with his son, tinkering in the garage, enjoyed recycling scrape and junk and mowing his lawn; but most of all, his devotion to his grandchildren.
