In his free time he enjoys hunting, camping, and being outdoors in general.
Larry Garrison, originally from Newport Rhode Island, moved to North Carolina in 1969.

He has become an invaluable member of our team and his title doesn't nearly explain all of the things he does to keep Carfix running smoothly! Larry loves his work, but his passion is his family. He has four children; two boys and two girls. Larry spends much of his free time with his two grandchildren, Amber and Ryan.
