Obit: Christopher Warren Garlington

Christopher Warren Garlington, known fondly as “Jug” to most, entered eternal rest on November 4th, 2022, at the age of 43. He was born in Natchitoches, Louisiana to Warren “Buck” Garlington and Shelia Whitehead.

A friendly, wonderfully big-hearted person, Chris never met a stranger. ‘No’ was not a word in his vocabulary, he was always ready to lend a helping hand wherever it was needed. He loved the open road and worked most of his life as a truck driver, which led him to owning his own trucking company the last several years of his life. Chris spent his free time hunting, fishing, going to the casino and making memories on family vacations. What lit him up though, was spending time with his cherished family, he worked hard so he could live in those moments.

He was preceded in death by his Father, Warren “Buck” Garlington and Four Grandparents, Wilton & Doris Garlington and Lynell and Violet Nugent

Those left behind to cherish his memory include his mother, Sheila Whitehead. The Love of his life, Lisa Llorence, and their four children, Louis (fiancé, Kelli) Llorence of Dallas, TX, Bryant (wife, Mary) Llorence of San Diego, CA, Joleen Llorence (fiancé, Andrew) of Woodland Hills, CA, Bryce (wife, Hannah) Llorence of Lynn Haven, FL, as well as two grandchildren; Bryant, Jr. And Eliza Rose of San Diego, CA. Chris also leaves behind one sister, Kimberly Garlington of Natchitoches, LA and three brothers, Larry (wife, Maria) Whitehead of Tracy, CA, Otis Wheatcraft of Natchitoches, LA, and Semme Whitehead of Natchitoches, LA. He was dearly loved by a host of aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews, and cousins as well as a multitude of loved ones also known as friends.

Chris, ‘Jug,’ will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
