    Though he was always quiet, it was good to look over to your dad’s usual seat at church and to and see his smile…. May God’s peace envelop you at this time.

  3. Pete Miner says:

    I had the priveledge of working with Garth for many years at Graphic Packaging. Garth was a very quiet man and was well liked by many, he had a lot of quirky mannerisms that everyone enjoyed and a strong work ethic for his job. I know he was really missed since his retirement. RIP OL Buddy and my prayers go out to all his family.
