Dennis Garrett    February 3, 1948 - September 5, 2015

It is with very heavy hearts that we share with you news of the passing of IIA of IL Executive Vice President Dennis Garrett. Dennis died Saturday, Sept. 5, at Memorial Medical Center in Springfield surrounded by his family.

Colleague, mentor, supervisor, friend, father- figure...Dennis was all of these and more at the IIA of IL for 25 years. He enjoyed giving the impression that he was a tough 'ole guy. In reality he was a big softie. And when you would break through that faux-crusty exterior and get a genuine belly laugh, hug or a sincerely kind word- well, that was the good stuff.

Dennis was set to retire at the end of this month. He looked forward to relocating to Atlanta, Georgia with his wife Jayne. It was a move that would allow him to be closer to two of his three children and respective grandchildren. It was a move about which he was very happy. Because while Dennis loved many things- fishing, double entendres, insurance, wine- what he cherished most was his family.

We ask that you keep the entire Garrett family in your thoughts and prayers.
Godspeed, friend. You will be missed.
