  • My first memories of my dear Uncle Garnie start when I was a young girl. He used to invite me onto the dance floor at the town dances and encourage me to jive with him. He was such a great dancer and a patient teacher. I remember he always used to say I looked so much like his sister Faye, my mother. I took that as a great compliment. He was soft spoken and always very kind to me. Whenever I saw him he would take my hand softly in his and ask me whats new, always the good listener. These past few years I didn’t get to see him very often, but I will sure miss seeing my handsome Uncle, loved him to bits. - Posted by: Janet Carroll (Niece) on: May 30, 2020

  • I'll always remember my Uncle Garney as handsome, fun loving, witty, funny and compassionate. He was quick to make a joke but was there with a tender, loving hug when things got serious. He was my Mom's youngest brother and like all my Mom's siblings was very talented, both with singing and playing guitar. I loved our family gatherings when we would all get together for a good old sing along. He loved family and cherished the times when we could all gather together. Uncle Garney you will always be thought of fondly, and loved deeply. - Posted by: Julie Masi (Niece) on: May 30, 2020
