Lee Garland "Junior" held various jobs throughout his life, however, his love was farming and deer hunting with his family and friends. Throughout his entire life he also enjoyed gardening where he'd always plant plenty of vegetables and would share his harvest with family and friends in the community. His legacy will be mostly remembered by his devoted love for all of his family, hard working and genuine respect for everyone that he crossed paths with during his life. He will be truly missed by all who knew him. The family would like to express our appreciation to the staff at The Hospice House in Charlottesville for making his last days as comfortable as they could be.
