Frank Wayne Garrott, 79, our brother in Christ went in peace to his Father’s Kingdom on April 12th in Winchester, Virginia.
Born March 7, 1943, in Washington DC, he was the son of the late Marion "Peachie" Garrott and Louise Roberta Cooper Garrott. Wayne proudly joined the U.S. Navy in 1961 and served a 4-year assignment on the U.S.S. Randolph which helped establish the Cubin Missile blockade of the island to prevent the Soviets from delivering additional missiles and military equipment to Cuba in 1963. He was an electrician in the tri-state area until retirement then worked part-time at Walmart in Charlestown, West Virginia. Wayne had attended Hayfield Assembly of God in Gore, Virginia.
Wayne was a quiet and kind soul who lived a simple life always ready to help family, friends, and volunteered with Mission of Mercy. He was a wonderful dance partner. He loved to attend church, read his bible, listen to country and gospel music, watch westerns with Charles Reynolds, sitcoms, and spend time with his family.
Wayne is survived by his daughter Leslie Manili (Dan), of Gore, Virginia; sister Dixie Shackelford (Wayne), of Knoxville; brother Larry Garrott (Mary) of Boonsboro; sisters Kim Smith (Denny) of Middletown and Diane Garrott (Cathie) of Delaware; three grandsons TJ Wiles (Ashley) of Winchester, Virginia; Tyler and Trent Manili of Gore, Virginia; two beautiful great-granddaughters Leighton and Tatum Wiles of Winchester, Virginia; and many beloved nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Wayne was preceded in death by a daughter Amy Lynn Garrott.
The family would like to thank Ashley Wiles, Carolyn Settle and Phyllis Reynolds for their loving care and assistance along the way.
