Dear Joe, Jennifer, and Mr. Garrad – Jack and I were very saddened to learn of Ike’s passing. He could cook up some great barbecue and we remember him as just “a good ol guy” and a good neighbor for many years. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family at this difficult time. Love, Jeannie and Jack Floyd

Condolence from Jennifer Floyd on December 18th, 2010 12:00 am

I’m very saddened to hear the news of Ike’s passing. I learned what “good” sausage and “good” bbq are from Ike and I’ve never been able to find anything that beats his! Memories of Missy and I playing “please pass the peeper” at Ike’s house, he always made us laugh til we cried… I’m fortunate to have known such a fantastic man. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Garrard family.

Condolence from Mike on December 18th, 2010 12:00 am

I remember Ikey as always having a great smile and having to look down on all of us “short” people.
We always had a lot of fun and good times as NHS kids and later adults…God is getting a good one!


Condolence from Eddie and Gale Senter on December 18th, 2010 12:00 am

Ikey was a good friend at NHS. We shared Chemistry class and along with others did our best to keep Miss Umstead on her toes. Our prayers are with the family.

Condolence from C B Tart on December 18th, 2010 12:00 am

Ike was one of those guys you wanted to be around at NHS. He always had a smile to share and a good story to tell. We crossed paths a number of times over the years and he always stopped to say hello and catch up. He will be missed by all his friends, he was special.


Condolence from Jack Hall on December 19th, 2010 12:00 am

Great guy…called them as he saw them…guess that is what I liked so much about him. We had some great times…he always seemed to put a different slant on situations. Will miss him !!!!

Condolence from Peter Goswick on December 19th, 2010 12:00 am

I am so sorry to learn of Ike’s passing. Ike was a great guy that was always happy to see you. Any time I would run into him he wanted to talk about old times and how good things were now. We had a lot of good fun while at NHS and he will be missed by his friends and family.

Condolence from Deborah Andrews on December 19th, 2010 12:00 am

I, like many, are very saddened over Ike’s passing. Ike was a very unique and special person – an Icon in his own right. He was such a people person and did’t know a stranger. He touched the lives of many and his passing definitely leaves a void in the lives of all that knew him. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with all his family during this difficult time.

Ikey was an unforgettable Northern High classmate with a big heart and a warm smile that brightened our hearts.
I know God will help heal the sorrow of his loss with warm memories and the thought that he is not forgotten.

I am so sorry to hear of Ikey’s passing. I have such great memories of him–almost all of them with him laughing. I can still see him in his basketball uniform now—

Condolence from Bruce W Chambers on December 21st, 2010 12:00 am

Ike and I both attended Northern High School where we played on NHS basketball teams, even though he was a little older than me. Wow, time passes by so fast, but we never forget those who touched our lives along the way. Our passing from this earth is the last chapter in time, but it is the first chapter in eternity with our Lord. May God’s grace give Ike’s Family and loved ones some peace during these sad days at Christmas time when we also celebrate our Lord’s birth who came to be our Savior. May God’s richest blessings be with Ike’s Family and it is my prayer that our Lord’s arms will be around you and give comfort to each of you. Bruce Chambers, 304 Woodbridge Way, Simpsonville SC 29681, bwchambers@charter.net

Condolence from Al Wall on December 21st, 2010 12:00 am

One of the things that you could always count on, back when we attended high school together was seeing Ikey with a smile on his face. And a story that made you laugh. The last time I saw Ikey was at one of our reunions, so long ago that I can’t remember when. But Ikey was there, still smiling and I am sure that we shared a laugh. I only moved back to North Carolina a year ago and was looking forward to attending our next reunion. One face I looked forward to seeing was Ikey’s. I am so sorry now that he will not be there in person but I know his spirit will be. My deepest sympathies to his family and all of his friends, who share in his passing.

Condolence from Quinton Brantley on December 22nd, 2010 12:00 am

Ikey was my buddy, one of those that qualified to be in the Hillandale Blue Book. He was unique because he didn’t know a stranger and anyone that approached him felt at ease. He was a great listener, one of the few that stepped up to the plate when my Dad of 51 passed away. We had great fun times on his granddad’s farm blowing up water moccasin snakes with cherry bombs.
Would love to share stories with his family.

Condolence from Clara P. Raynor on December 29th, 2010 12:00 am

I live in Johnston County & am the great, great granddaughter of the Rev. Thompson Garrard who was a Methodist Circuit Rider in the early 1800’s. Upon retirement he served as minister for 3 years at Mt. Zion UM Church where we attend today. Perhaps we are related. From others’ comments it sounds like Ike was a grand person. I would be honored to know that we are related. A family search revealed that my great, great grandfather’s Uncle Samuel was also a minister. But I believe they were from Orange County. My condolences to the family whether or not we are related. Email address: royraynor@embarqmail.com

Condolence from Roy L Forrester III on March 8th, 2013 12:00 am

I met Ike when I was 17 years old back in 1981 when he gave me one of my first Summer Jobs. I was fortunante enough to see him again in recent years with a visit at his home. He was one of those people that you always enjoyed being around.I will miss him dearly.
