Josh Goldman said, “No words can describe the loss of a great professor, mentor and friend! I met Garland Owensby in August 2005 during New Student Orientation. His twin boys were with him and loved meeting them. Garland helped me through so many life challenges, whether it be through prayer in the Chapel, in class or even during some impromptu lunches in the cafeteria on campus. Garland kept things real because he cared about students that much! Until we meet again”
