It is with immense sadness we announce the passing of an amazing husband, father, son, brother, uncle and, friend. He fought so hard against the cancer that was spreading through his body the last 16 months. He lived his life to the fullest with friends and family.

Left with a hole in their lives and their hearts are wife of 28 years Darlene and their children Christie and TJ, mom Shirley, Father Garnet senior, sister Karen (Gord), children Christopher, Jessica, sister-in-law Kelly (Dave), children Tyler and Morgan, mother-in-law Joan (Tom), Father-in-Law Joe and so many treasured friends.

Born in Nanaimo and raised in Crofton, BC. He later married the love of his life Darlene, and built a house on the farm she was raised on in Cassidy, and have continued to raise their two children there.

After selling the family run business the Red Rooster in 1993, he embarked on a new adventure, owning Travel 2 Destinations out of Chemainus for the last 18 years.

Through their life together, Garnet was able to take his family traveling around the world, enjoying their travels with many family and friends. He enjoyed golfing with his buddies at Mt. Brenton Golf course where he was a member, coaching his children in soccer and baseball and the many socials with their friends.

A celebration of life will be held Sunday, March 18, at the Crofton Community Hall from 1 p.m. In lieu of fl owers donations can be made to the Cowichan Valley Mustangs Midget AAA ball team.
