Garret was a family man, a great father, a brother to many, a great son and an amazing husband. He had a passion for just about anything with an engine. He spent his free time wrenching and tinking on any motor he could fit a wrench around. He was an outdoorsmen, Loved riding and going camping or as he would call it “let’s go get lost” he was a spur of the moment “gas up boys” and Shelly him and the boys would head out and go camping or spend the weekend out of town and enjoy each others company. He was a simple man not hard to please. A little fire and his family was all he needs.
If you knew gary He was a selfless person anything he had was yours and he would always offer to fix something for you even if it came back a little bit more broken than before he touched it. His passion for motorcycles started at a young age and he was hooked ever since. He loved old bikes especially old Harley’s and their gas tanks.
He is survived by his wife Michelle,his 2 sons Gunner and Jameson, his mother and father Kathy and Barry and his brother and sister Zach and Paige and on top of that the whole community and many more family members and long time friends. He will forever live on with all of us. Gary left behind a lot of great people and a lot of responsibilities. This weight we all will lift together. Gary was sadly struck by a motor vehicle Tuesday afternoon and did not make it. If you know Gary you knew he was happy on those 2 wheels. In this time we ask for any help anyone can lend to help with the burden of these sad times. All proceeds will go to funeral expenses and to Shelly and the boys. Thank you to everyone in advance
