Garry B. Coston is no stranger to adversity, challenge, and hard times. Mr. Coston was born in Jacksonville, Florida on October 4th but would later be raised in the small North Florida Country Town of Jasper, Florida. During his childhood, Mr. Coston also lived in Jacksonville, Fort Myers, and Sarasota Florida. He would attend Sarasota High School in Sarasota, Florida but would not graduate.
