Gerald Garrow Obituary

Gerald "Jerry" Lewis Garrow, 79, of Joplin, MO, passed away on January 15, 2024, at his home in Joplin, Missouri,

He was born on October 28, 1944, to George and Lila (Clinton) Garrow in New London, Wisconsin.

Jerry started his trucking career with Cummin's Engines, he spent many years in trucking where he became passionate about the sales side of that industry. After leaving the trucking, he transitioned into underground utilities before retiring from O'Reilly.

He was always up for a day trip to some small town attraction, such as Red Oak II, Eureka Springs or even the local Dairy Queen. While making certain to take the most indirect route to get there so he could spend more time with whichever friend, son or grandchild that was fortunate enough to tag along. Jerry held a special place in his heart for the medical personnel that took such good care of him for many years before his passing. Always sure to show his appreciation with a box of chocolates from Richardson Candy House or a Chick-Fil-A gift card.

He is survived by four sons, Justin Garrow of Frontenac, KS, Jared Garrow of Carl Junction, MO, Troy Garrow of Olathe, KS, and Jason Green of Chapel Hill, NC; a brother, William "Bill" Garrow of Tulsa, OK; two sisters, Debbie House of Tulsa, OK; Dianne Garrow of Lakewood, CO; grandchildren, Kaidence Garrow, Ethan Garrow, Henry Garrow, Dotty Garrow, Chase Garrow, Chelsi Garrow, Clayton Garrow, Corynn Beeding, Eloise Green, and Caroline Green.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers, Gilbert "Gib" Garrow, Leonard Garrow, and Lowell "Shorty" Garrow, and a sister Katherine "Katy" Butler.

A graveside service will be held at 3:00 PM Saturday, January 27, 2024, at the Frontenac City Cemetery with Randy Woods officiating.
