To further his career, Garrett had planned to begin studies in sports management in the fall. He was proud of his rank of Eagle Scout. He was the greatest big brother. He was definitely the funniest person to all who knew and loved him. Garrett will be long remembered for his sense of humor, his bold laughter and zest for life. Through his most difficult times his biggest strength was the love and support he received from his family and they from him. He will be truly missed.
