Garry Grant Browning 56, of Logan, WV passed away Saturday May 13, 2023 at his home.

 

Garry was born August 5, 1966 to Ronnie and the late Nina Browning in Logan, WV. He graduated from Logan High School in 1984 and went on to join the Navy where he proudly served his country for four years. Garry spent most of his adult life as a corrections officer in North Carolina and West Virginia. He also spent some of that time as a coal miner. Garry loved hunting, fishing, golfing with his dad and son, singing, playing guitar, and spending time with his family and friends.

 

Garry was a devoted husband, loving Dad and Pappy, and the best softball coach a daughter could have had. He was preceded in death by his mother Nina Browning, and a host of extended family. Those left to cherish his memory are his loving wife Lisa, his father Ronnie Browning, his brother Jason (Darla) Browning, his kids Shanda (Justin)Cooper, Christopher (Hanna) Browning, Daniel Browning, Taylor Daugherty, Ciara (Braxton) Nelson, his grandkids Justin, Joesph, Sawyer Cooper, Ryder Browning, his best bud and partner in crime Winter Nelson, his nieces Kristin Browning, Jenny Hawk, and Brittany Branham. Special friends David (Tammy) Beck, and a host of extended family.

 

Services will be held at Aker-James Funeral home on Wednesday May 17, 2023 from 6-9 pm, and Thursday May 18, 2023 at 1 pm. Burial will follow at Highland Memory Gardens, and Pastor Scottie Watkins will say a few words to help celebrate Garry's life.

 

Pallbearers will be Jason Browning, Christopher Browning, Daniel Browning, Braxton Nelson, Alex Mullins, Ralph Rodighiero, and David Beck.

 

“My Dad, Garry Grant Browning As society goes great men are like Ghandhi or Martin Luther King Jr. My father didn't lead in civil rights or spiritual worship but he is still a GREAT man, and here is why. He didn't make millions but he worked to make sure we never wanted for anything. He did this without the help of another parent and we still never missed practice. This man wasn't perfect but he raised three kids to be respectful, considerate, and overall kind to everyone. That is what makes Garry Grant a great man, my dad, my hero. Love, Your son Daniel.”
