Ricky Dee Garrett, age 68, passed away Friday August 20, 2021 peacefully at his home in Lynnville surrounded by his loved ones.

Ricky was born June 22, 1953 in Pulaski, TN to the late C.R. Garrett and Mildred Johnson Garrett Owens. His family remembers him as a man of few words, hardworking, a farmer and a busy body. He loved tractors, trucks, cattle, cutting hay, coon hunting, his dog, but most of all he loved his wife. They say if he couldn’t fix it he would “Ricky Fix It” and they will never forget “Shut that gate!”. Ricky was preceded in death by his parents, twin brother Tony Garrett and brother-in-law Bones Odom.
