  1. Sandy, Diana, Shirley, Leslie, Catherine: I am so, so sorry to learn of Garth’s passing. At 63, he was way too young to have left us. I’ve learned a tough lesson with Garth being gone now – I’d promised myself many, many times to visit him at the General Hospital, and just never…got…around…to…it, and for that I feel very sad. From the first time I met Garth, when he was 13 or 14 years old, I sensed a gentle soul and a big heart. I don’t believe that ever changed, did it. Thinking of all five of you…

  2. We knew Garth from the General and we are saddened to hear of his passing. We shared a love of music and have happy memories of Garth at Folkfest. He always had a smile and warm hello. He was a good friend and is missed. Sending prayers and condolences to the family.
    Len Morrison and Sharlene

  3. I think I may have met Garth once or twice a long, long time ago. I knew better his sister, Shirley, and to her I extend my sympathies for having lost a brother at such a comparatively young age.
