Garth loved socializing, music, travelling and golf.
He enjoyed taking his grandsons bowling, skating and to see “the sights”.
He loved his crime novels.

This day is remembered and quietly kept
No words are needed, we shall never forget
For those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.
Forever in our hearts
