Who Is William John Garner? Is He Jennifer Garner’s Father?

Every parent should be proud of their child’s success. And behind that success, it takes thousands of hours of hard work. Today, we will talk about a man who supported his child at every stage of her life.

He is none other than William John Garner, the father of one of the most loved actresses, producers, entrepreneurs, and beauty queens, Jennifer Garner.

We all know about the Alias star’s work, husband, and children, but we don’t know much about Jennifer’s dad. Before Jennifer was born, the Garner family lived in Houston, Texas.

Jennifer was born on April 17, 1972, and when she turned three, the Garner family decided to move to Charleston, West Virginia. There John Garner and his wife, Patricia, raised their three daughters with a good education.

In 1994 Jennifer went to Denison University in Granville, Ohio. In those four years, she learned about stage performance. She never thought about doing film or TV acting. She was only interested in performing on stage.

One thing Jennifer has proved is that she’s very close to her family. Besides her work, she manages her family life very well. Here’s an example:

In June 2020, Jennifer Garner posted a heart-touching tribute to her father with some sweet words on Instagram. Saying, 

Look at this face—equal parts mischief and crazy intelligence. Thank you, Billy Jack, for working your tail off, for hugging the world’s best hugs, and for mowing the lawn in the dark. #GirlDad—you scratched your head at the cost of pointe shoes but have never missed a performance. I grew up with the luxury of taking your work ethic, integrity, steadfast love of my mom, sisters, and me for granted. Yesterday you told me, ‘We love you so much, and we are so proud of you’, what more could a child ask of a father. Happy Father’s Day, Dad, we love YOU so much, are so lucky to be your girls, and we are so proud of YOU. ♥️

  1. Curious. I have an uncle who lived in Baytown, Texas. He and my mother’s sis, Sandra Kay Akins, were together when I was a small child. They had two children together, Pual and Kathleen (I believe I have her name spelled correctly). Their marriage lasted only a few years. So, I’m wondering if, since William John Garner was around the Houston area (Baytown is a huge chemical/refinery town), there is some familial connection between him and my uncle Gary. That’s all I have on his name. I am about 10 years older than Jennifer. If you have any info, please let me know. Being adopted by another family member(my great-aunt on birth mother’s side) I have the Tillis name and am 6th cousin to Mel, 7th to Pam. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks!

    • Hi Larry. Was you’re Gary’s last name Garner? I just happen to read this post. I have some Garners in my tree. My grandmother was a Tullous and I know quite a lot about that family which goes back to Scotland (1600’s). I believe the Mel Tillis line isn’t connected to mine but may going back to Scotland. I don’t think Jennifer’s family is connected to my Garner family. My Tullous and Garners are from central and East Texas. Let me know if I can help in any way.
