Jacob Anthony Garrido
On March 23, 2022, the world’s okayest drummer, Jacob Anthony Garrido, simply known as Jake to friends, skipped out on his summer gigs and departed this earth. We don’t know if he’s aware of it because he slept through it.
Now, his wife, Sue, sister, Barbara (Carl) Noble, and children, Jenny (Max) Herrera, Whitney (Rob) Baron, Jacob Malloy, Tim Tinsley, Steve (Amber) Tinsley, Stephanie Leatherman, Ray, and George Draleaus, have too many items to sort through as Jake was a collector of anything odd, strange, weird, funny or music-related.
His grandchildren, Matea, Joshua, Christopher, Alex, Kaitlyn, Kayden, Preston, Trey, Jordan, Lance, Brandon, Steven, Gabe, and Brandie, will be getting odd things to remember him by. Although we’re not sure, who will get the crumpled bugle?
Jake was born on the island of Guam on October 16, 1952. Not being able to depend on his rowboat, he joined the Army in 1975 to get off the island. After being stationed in Kentucky, Germany, Korea, Texas, and other places, he left the Army and settled in Tacoma, Washington, in 1982.
Jake spent many years as a handyman. He liked building and repairing things. The biggest love of his life was music. He played drums for many years with bands like “The Earl White Revue,” “Back 2 Skool”, “The Last Chance Romeos,” and many others. Finally, playing with his forever brothers Dustin and Todd of 9 Pound Hammer. In his later years, he played the bass guitar with Rob, and they formed another forever bond.
There will be a celebration of life for Jake on April 11, 2022, at Victory Outreach Tacoma, located at 1201 S. J Street, Tacoma, Washington, from 6:30-8:30pm.
