John Douglas Garand (74) of Perrysburg was born on September 7, 1943 at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Toledo and died on January 10, 2018 while wintering in Fort Myers, Florida. He was the youngest child of Fred & Mary (Yambor) Garand attending Clay Elementary School in Oregon and graduating from Central Catholic High School in 1961. He studied political science at Bowling Green State University graduating early in 1964.

He met Sharon Moriarty in 1963 at the TCCY (Toledo Council of Catholic Youth) summer bowling league. They were married on February 27, 1965.
