Garrett Curtis Capps-Gordon
Fourteen year old Garrett Curtis Capps-Gordon, of Tallahassee and Bristol, went to Heaven on Saturday, January 28, 2012 in Tallahassee.
Garrett was born in 1997 on his mother’s birthday, the seventeenth of April. In his early years, he lived and attended school in Bristol. For several years he has lived in Tallahassee and has most recently attended Montford Middle School where this year he was a member of the eighth grade class.
After school, Garrett greatly enjoyed being a member of a local youth rowing crew. Early this past December, Garrett and his crew won their division in a state rowing competition in Tampa, FL. Garrett and his entire crew returned to Tallahassee wearing enormous smiles and gold medals around their necks to the admiration of their friends and family.
When he was younger, Garrett attended Tolar School in Bristol and loved participating in local baseball and football leagues sporting the number “1” on his jersey. He especially loved visiting with friends and family. His special friends were his teachers and the Ray & Gwen McCoy family of Bristol.
Garrett was known and loved for his adventurous spirit by his friends and family. His daredevil antics are famous and provide many funny and entertaining tales among those who love him so well, particularly his five male first cousins. He loved to kayak, ride anything fast, bungee jump in the mall, and do almost anything that involved movement,
Garrett is survived by his parents James Gordon, Jr. and Jeanne Waggaman of Tallahassee, and Catrina Capps-Jordon and Kenneth Jordon of Bristol. His grandparents are Sonya M. Capps and the late Charles (Chuck) Capps of Bristol, James and Nona Gordon of Dothan, AL , Wayne and Elizabeth Taylor and John and Jane Waggaman all of Tallahassee.

Garrett is also survived by his best friends in the world-- his first cousins: Andrew, Austin, Aaron, Josh, Colton, Dakota, and London.
