Michael Garrett

Michael Dale Garrett, 28, of Clarksburg, passed away Saturday (Feb. 1, 2014) doing what he loved and lived for in the line of duty.

He was born Oct. 7, 1985, in Clarksburg, son of Dale Allen and Faith Marie Lake Garrett.

Michael is survived by his parents; one brother, Justin Michael Brady and wife Ashley; three sisters, Julie Ann Freeman and companion John Carder, Anna Marie Roberts and companion Daniel Hebb, and Katie Elizabeth Garrett and fiancé Chad Gorman; maternal grandparents, Joe and Nancy Casto Scardina; nieces and nephews, Jason Brady, Christian and Morgan Davis, Madison, Ethan, Skyler and Kaden Brady, Seth Garrett, Emma and Chase Roberts; two uncles, Sam and wife Pam Scardina, and Tony Scardina and companion Tara Kester; numerous other great aunts, uncles and cousins; extended family of Nutter Fort Fire Department; best friend, Aaron Cutright.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Lelearnd Dale and Sara Catherine Swiger Garrett.

Michael attended South Harrison High School, Alderson-Broaddus College and was currently attending Fairmont State University where he was scheduled to graduate in May with an associate’s degree in emergency services. He was currently employed at Grant Town EMS and Upshur County EMS as an EMT-I and as an instructor for RESA 7 at WVU.

He began his EMS and firefighter career at the age of 15 by attending the Junior EMS Camp at Harrison County EMS and at 16 as junior firefighter at Nutter Fort Fire Department. He was currently the treasurer and many things for the fire department. Michael became a first-responder, an EMT-B and EMT-I.

He was a member of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church. His passion in life was helping others; he also had a great sense of humor and a smile for everyone. He has worked and helped many EMS and fire departments in the surrounding counties and even several states.
