Dan and Tammy (Jamerson) Garey married at St. Mark Lutheran Church of Tallmadge on April 30, 2005, and are the parents of those lovely and talented young ladies who sat in the front left at church, pre-pandemic.
Residents of Macedonia, Dan and Tammy joined Advent in April of 2006, and it has been a delight to welcome their growing family: Laura, is now 14 and an 8th grader at Nordonia Middle School. She is talented at both softball and singing; Lilly, 12 and a 6th grader at the Intermediate School, loves playing soccer, reading and singing as well; Leah, 8 and a 3rd grader at Ledgeview Elementary, also loves soccer and the piano; and Lyndsey, amazingly 7 already, is a first grader at Ledgeview, and like her older sisters, enjoys soccer, reading, and playing with her Barbies.
Dan graduated from Maple Heights High School and trained at the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center to become a firefighter – as of Dec 1st he will be celebrating 17 years as a firefighter/Paramedic with the City of Mentor Fire Department. Tammy graduated from high school in Akron and received her BSN through Malone College. Tammy has many years under her belt as an ER nurse, but now works from home doing ER billing for Summa Health System and occasionally picks up shifts in the ER as she is needed.
They met when Dan was a paramedic and Tammy worked in the emergency room at St. Thomas Hospital. Dan enjoys woodworking and home projects (you should check out the fun stuff in their back yard!) and Tammy enjoys helping in the classes for Nordonia schools(pre pandemic) and being a Girl Scout leader. Both love going to cheer on the girls at their sporting events! The Garey family is also very excited to start adventures in their newest RV addition! At Advent they are very involved: Dan doing many repairs (tile work!) and cutting the grass, and Tammy with the Fellowship Committee and bells. They say the best part about Advent is the small family atmosphere.
When will Dan play his bagpipes for us again?
There's a place for YOU here, we do better together!
