Garrett was a wonderful father to his boys. He was a frequent visitor and volunteer at Glen Oaks. It was such a treat when he would be there to have lunch with his boys or volunteer and he would spend a little time in the office with us. He had a great sense of humor and would always leave us with a smile. Your boys are special to us and we miss you sir. Theresa Weishaar Glen Oaks Elementary School, November 13, 2017 I am at a loss for words during this sorrowful time. Please know that I am thinking of you and praying for peace and comfort. Garrett was very special to our family. We will love and miss him always. Mr, Mrs Jeff Grissom and family, November 11, 2017
