Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of the legendary Elvis Presley, has left behind a remarkable legacy. As we remember her, we also acknowledge her brother, Navarone Garibaldi, who played a significant role in her life.
A Journey Through Family Bonds
Born on February 1, 1968, Lisa Marie was the product of the marriage between Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley. Their love story captivated the world, and Lisa Marie’s arrival was an eagerly anticipated event. Her birth symbolized the solid bond between her parents during that time.
However, as the years went by, the marriage ended in 1973, leading to Priscilla’s relationship with computer programmer turned dramatist Marco Garibaldi. Together, they welcomed a son named Navarone Garibaldi in 1987.
Navarone Garibaldi: Continuing the Musical Journey
Navarone Garibaldi, Lisa Marie’s half-brother, is not only recognized for his family ties but also for his musical talent. As the frontman of the Los Angeles-based rock band Them Guns, he carries on the Presley family legacy. Drawing inspiration from bands like Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, Kings of Leon, and The Chemical Brothers, Navarone adds his unique touch to the world of rock music.
In February, Navarone married the love of his life, Elisa, in Switzerland, captivating the hearts of those close to the family. The picturesque Schloss Hunigen Hotel became the backdrop of their joyous day, as Priscilla shared beautiful moments from the outdoor wedding on Instagram. The connection to Lisa Marie is evident, as eagle-eyed Elvis fans might discover delightful hints to their shared history.
A Touch of Familiarity
During Navarone and Elisa’s wedding ceremony, a TV screen can be spotted in the background. A sweet nostalgia fills the air, reminiscent of the “you may now kiss the bride” moments watched by so many. It is worth noting that the ceremony was officiated by none other than Jerry Schilling, Priscilla’s dear lifelong friend, and a close member of Elvis’ inner circle. Recently, Jerry and Lisa Marie were seen together at the Golden Globe Awards, where Austin Butler, who portrayed Elvis in Baz Luhrmann’s biopic, was honored with the Best Drama Actor award.
The Family That Endures
Lisa Marie’s passing leaves behind a loving family, including her mother, siblings, and three daughters: Harper, Finley, and Riley Keough. These remarkable young souls, aged 13 and 33, will carry on the Presley spirit. With Lisa Marie’s recent departure, Elvis’ three grandchildren will inherit Graceland and the cherished possessions of their legendary grandfather.
However, the family has also experienced loss. Benjamin Keough, Lisa Marie’s son, tragically passed away in 2020 at the age of 27. He now rests peacefully beside his grandfather in the Meditation Garden of their Memphis home. Lisa Marie had previously stated her desire to join them in their final resting place, alongside the possibility of her grandson or her beloved grandmother, Minnie Mae.
As we celebrate the life of Lisa Marie Presley, we honor her musical legacy and the everlasting connection she shared with her family. Together, they continue to inspire and captivate us with their unwavering spirit.
