Charles Garner, age 91, of Loganville, GA passed away on Tuesday, October 18, 2022.  He was a devoted husband and is survived by his loving wife of 66 years, Lettie Lee Garner.

He served in the U.S. Air Force as Staff Sergeant.  During his working career, he was a grocery store manager; became a builder and developer; and was co-founder, with his son Larry, of Southern Plantation—the largest personal care home in Georgia at the time.  In his retirement, he enjoyed working on his farm.
He was a dedicated Christian and faithful member of Loganville Baptist Church where he served many years as the Men’s Bible Class teacher and as a deacon.  After retiring, he was recognized as Deacon Emeritus.  
He was a caring father and is survived by his children Joyce Franks and Larry (Jan) Garner.  He treasured spending time with children, especially his grand- and great grandchildren.

He loved all animals, especially the Tennessee Walking Horses he owned and raised over the years,  including a World Champion and Reserve World Champion. His daughter Joyce continues that love today as she just finished showing his horse at the Celebration. He and the late Tommy Howell enjoyed many horse shows together over their decades-long friendship.

He is preceded in death by his parents J.G. and Fay Garner, four brothers, and two sisters. He is survived by two brothers, two sisters, a sister-in-law, three grandchildren and five great granddaughters. Before they could walk independently, all five great granddaughters had their first “ride” on one of his Tennessee Walkers.
