Garland Herbert Lessman of Perry, Texas was born December 22, 1943 and moved to Heaven on September 2, 2019 at the age of 75. Funeral services will be 10:00 AM Saturday, September 7th at Perry United Methodist Church, 193 CR 127, Riesel, TX with Rev. Lynn Starnes officiating. Interment will immediately follow at Perry United Methodist Cemetery.

He was a life-long member of Perry United Methodist Church and a Master Mason for over 40 years. He became a 32-degree Scottish Rite Master Mason, a member of the Karem Shrine, and Past Master of Marlin Masonic Lodge #152. Garland graduated Marlin High School in 1962 and Baylor University in 1967. He was a small business owner and operator for over 30 years, primarily in the Marlin and Robinson communities. He was always ready to greet a person with a smile and share a new story with them.

The best description for Garland is that he loved life! He enjoyed western movies and tv shows, dancing, and spending time with his friends. Garland’s biggest joy on earth was his family. He enjoyed his country lifestyle and had a special affection for his animals, most especially Burt.

Garland was preceded in death by his father – Herbert Lessman, mother – Esther Grote Lessman, sister – Ellen Jo Lessman, and brother, Dwight Herbert Lessman.

He is survived by his nephew and spouse – Denny and Stacy Lessman, his brother and spouse – Dean and Sherri Lessman, and many other nieces, nephews, friends and extended family.

Over the past couple of years, Garland developed a closer relationship with his Lord, Jesus Christ, calling him a friend. He has encouraged others to create or renew their relationship with Jesus. He is now in heaven, where there is “no more death or sorrow or crying or pain…” Rev. 21:4.
