In 2014 James Garner sadly passed away at the age of 86. But the veteran actor had lived a pretty amazing life as a star of the silver screen, making his mark on movies such as The Great Escape and The Notebook. And when Garner died, he also left behind a loving family – including daughter Gigi. Gigi has since gone on to honor her father, in fact, and the way in which she has paid tribute to Garner may just touch your heart.
Gigi’s mom, meanwhile, is Lois Clarke, whom Garner had first encountered at a party in 1956. Rather incredibly, the couple tied the knot just two weeks on from that initial meeting, with the pair going on to remain together for the rest of Garner’s life. And Garner and his wife raised two children: Kim, who was Clarke’s child from a former relationship, and Greta – who now, of course, goes by Gigi.
