Obituary

Garrett Charles Soulè, born on March 3, 1945 in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, is the man, the myth, the legend. Garrett was an all-star athlete in high school and later in the Marine Corps. He developed lifetime friends, especially in Pennsylvania, but also all over the world. After high school, he enlisted into the United States Marine Corps and volunteered to serve in Vietnam. He loved being a Marine and served as a commander in the Marine Corps Special Ops Forces. Morals, ethics, and integrity were the way he led his life with the goal of always helping others. After his tour of duty ended, he moved to San Diego, California and lived in the area for most of his adult life. He had a successful career as a Certified Financial Planner. Garrett was also a Certified Numismatist. His hobbies included collecting American Flyer trains, sports cards, stamps, and rare coins.

He later relocated to Florida and met the love of his life, Lisa. Garrett and Lisa were inseparable and enjoyed daily workouts at the gym, walking on the beach, traveling, and fishing. They spent hours just sitting and talking, and never ran out of words. Garrett’s greatest joy was also spending time with his son, Jon, and together, Garrett helped Jon achieve his goal of becoming a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo. Jon voluntarily left the University of Florida to come home and help care for his dad when he got sick. Garrett was so proud of his stepdaughter, Kimberly, who lives in Pennsylvania, for achieving success in her career and following her dreams.

Passionate, optimistic, and a true believer. The Soulè family heritage is legendary. They fought in the Battle of Hastings (1066). His ancestor, George Soulè, came over on the Mayflower, and was one of the signers of the Mayflower Compact. Garrett’s best quote is “Each day is a gift, and you only get one at a time. Use it wisely!”
