Motorcycle dealer

May 24, 2007

William R. Garrett, a retired motorcycle dealer, died of a heart attack May 17 at the Hart Heritage nursing home in Street. The Whiteford resident was 84.

Born in Street, he attended the old one-room Mount Vernon School and was a 1941 graduate of the old Highland High School.

As a young man, Mr. Garrett worked on his family's farm and later opened the Prospect Store, where he sold chain saws and lawn mowers.

He later sold Harley-Davidson motorcycles and won awards for his service and sales achievements. In 1996, he sold the dealership and retired.

Services were held Tuesday at Whiteford's Mount Vernon United Methodist Church, where he was a member.

Survivors include his wife of 60 years, the former Margaret L. Jones; a brother, Lowell R. Garrett of Darlington; two sisters, F. Loureen Cooper of Whiteford and Jean M. Lentz of Street; and three nieces and three nephews.
