He has 4 great grandchildren; Roselyn Garnto, Liam Haygood, Dylan Garnto & Luca Trammell Locklear. Born in Laurens County, Ga., Trammell graduated from Dexter High School in 1964. He was the youngest of the family and remained in the home with his mother and her twin sister until meeting his bride Glenda Bracewell. They wed in 1966 and started a family in 1968. Trammell served in the Army National Guard for nearly 20 years combined. He worked several years at Armstrong in Macon, Ga where he and his brother Randall would carpool for many years. Trammell brought his family to Cherokee County in 1988. Trammell worked hard and long hours for many years to provide for his family. He was the best Daddy and Papa that ever lived. He was a very selfless person and all of us wish to have a little of that quality he gracefully expressed all the time. He will forever live in the heart of the ones whose life he touched. He retired from Underwood Mold Company in 2014 and moved to Dahlonega, Ga. with his daughter & her husband to be closer to all of his grandchildren. Trammell is an amazing soul that would do anything for anyone, but there is no greater love on earth than the love he has for his family. His family equally loves him the same way and he will be missed until each of us see him again.
