Name Origin
The name GARON is not a rhyming derivation of Karon/Kaner/Kenner. In fact, according to Steve Heifetz, "Our 'real' family name is Suster. This is a derivative of Shuster - German origin for 'shoemaker'. For more information, see the page: Garon - Origin of the Family Name.


Family Reunions
Garon Family Reunions have been held in the past but (to my knowledge) none are currently scheduled. (See information for the Kaner Family Reunion on the Kaner Introduction page.
