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.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
