Garland Estus Odom, Jr.



Garland Estus Odom, Jr., 68, of Willard passed from his earthly life on Thursday, March 15, 2018 at his home.

He was born March 31, 1949 in Pender County and was the son of Lucille Dale Odom of Willard and the late Garland Estus Odom, Sr. He was preceded in death by his sister, Glenda Odom Hurley.

In addition to his mother, Garland is survived by his sons, Garland E. “Trey” Odom III (Melinda) and Dale Odom; daughter, Heather Odom; grandchildren, Kennedy Odom and Krew Odom; brother, Ricky Odom (Connie); numerous aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Garland loved being outdoors around all of God’s bountiful and beautiful nature, especially he enjoyed being in and around the water while boating. Also he had a passion for dancing, shagging, and cooking. He had a kind heart, a warm smile and a feisty sense of humor that could brighten any rainy day. Most of all Garland loved his family, especially his grandchildren. His presence in this world will be missed and his sunny smile remembered.

The family will receive friends at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, March 18, 2018 at Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home Burgaw Chapel with memorial service beginning at 3:00 p.m. The Rev. Merrell McKoy will conduct the service.
