Show n' shine chairperson remembered as 'family-man' - High River TimesFriday, September 2, 2016
By Kevin Rushworth
An outpouring of support followed news of the death of High River’s Garret Broer, but his loved ones remember the happy-go-lucky family man’s love for vehicles and the selfless help he provided to others.
Garret, 50, passed away after a motorcycle accident outside Vulcan on Aug. 13.
While many knew him as the event chairperson for the River City Classics Car Club’s annual show ‘n shine, his brother Maurice regarded him as a person who brought others closer together.
“He was the glue of the family,” he said. “He held all kinds of people together, not just (our) family. If things were going wrong, something was up...he would always be there to make sure it was right.”

After his passing, Andrew noted he will remember Garret for his assistance provided to others, either vehicle mechanics work or other handyman skills, and his great love for fam...
