Burnis Garrard Obituary

In Loving Memory of Burnis Garrard

"It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a true American cowboy, Burnis Clifton Garrard, who journeyed to his eternal home on October 25, 2023, in Bellevue, at the age of 88. Born on September 5, 1935, in the heart of Haleyville, Alabama, Burnis was a son of the late Henry and Blanche (Aderholt) Garrard, a lineage of strength and resilience.

Burnis’s life was a testament to dedication and hard work, having spent over four decades working for the railroad. A man of integrity and honor, he approached every endeavor with unwavering honesty, a positive outlook, and a Mastery of Wheelin’ and Dealin' that knew no bounds. His love for endless storytelling, gardening, reining of horses, loyal canine companions, the artistry of guns, and his casual plate of cornbread, beans, and green onions defined his wrangler spirit.

In the tapestry of his life, Burnis leaves behind a legacy cherished by his children, Keith Garrard and Debbie (Mike) Druckenmiller, four beloved grandchildren, Matthew (Ashley) Druckenmiller, Charlene (Aaron) Stout, Acesa (Ashley) Garrard, and Caleb Druckenmiller, as well as nine great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild, a brother in law Charles (Sonny) (Marie) Gipson, and many cousins and friends who carry the torch of his values and virtues.

He now reunites with his beloved wife, Ida (Gipson) Garrard, whom he married on January 19, 1956, marking the beginning of a lifelong love story until her passing in 2019. As well as his siblings LaVaughn Bobo, Alene Ropchak, and Jesse Jerome Garrard, in the embrace of eternity, leaving behind memories that will continue to inspire and warm the hearts of those who knew him.

In his passing, Burnis Garrard’s cowboy spirit lives on, reminding us all to pursue our passions, to work with integrity, and to love with unwavering dedication. As the sun sets on his earthly journey, his legacy shines brightly, like a lone star in the midwestern sky.

Friends will be received on Saturday, November 4th, 2023 from 2:00 until a memorial service begins at 4:00pm at Foos & Foos Funeral Service, 151 Yorkshire Place, Bellevue."
