John Garrison Obituary, Death – John Garrison, a member of the CAA Butte squad, passed away in the latter part of the last week of the previous month. As a member of the team working on our Energy and Environmental Services initiative, John made a significant contribution throughout the program. John worked tirelessly each and every day to install energy-saving measures in the homes of some of our most impoverished neighbors. His efforts were greatly appreciated.
Because of his efforts, the amount of money spent on energy by those households has been cut down over the long run, and the level of safety that exists within those homes has increased. John was not the type of person to hang about doing nothing after his immediate responsibilities were completed. John was able to find activities to engage in that would keep him occupied in some capacity at all times.
It didn’t matter if it was mowing the lawn, cleaning the bathrooms, or washing the work vehicle; he was always looking for new ways to contribute to the success of the team. He was always kind and courteous, and simply an all-around wonderful person to be around. It is a terrible loss not only for our family at Community Action but also for the rest of the people who live in the Butte community as a whole. Everyone will be grieving his passing in their own unique ways. During this difficult time, we ask that you keep John and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
