Benjamin Garland

February 11, 1976 — November 23, 2022

We are sad to announce that Benjamin Garland passed away on November 23, 2022, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Ben was born on February 11, 1976 in El Paso, Texas.

Beloved son of Beth Savage and Bob Greenwood. Dear brother to Robert Greenwood and Marc Greenwood.  Preceded in death by his wife Elisabeth Dunn September 30, 2021.  Ben loved her and never recovered from her passing.  Ben loved his cats Lisa and Little Dude, and had a profound passion for music and science.  Ben was a proud graduate of New Mexico Tech.  Also preceded in death by his father Paul Garland.  Cremation has occurred and his ashes will join those of his wife Lis, to be scattered at the Gulf of Mexico.  Donations in his memory may be made to an animal rescue organization or any charity of your choice.  My heart will ache for you forever, my dearest son.

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

E. E. Cummings
