Show n' shine chairperson remembered as 'family-man' - High River TimesFriday, September 02, 2016
Red Deer Lake Church, the car club, the Rotary Club of High River and through his work, she noted family meant everything to her father.
“He was out at my grandparents’ farm (outside Okotoks), probably at least three or four times a week,” she recalled. “He would just show up to see what they needed.”
Jeff Langford, president with the River City Classics Car Club, remembered Garret, a club vice-president, as a man who had two loves—his family first and then vehicles.
“The response has been overwhelming,” he said, noting the shock, disbelief everyone is feeling. “Even for his service, I’ve had lots of guys call from all over who have found out about Garret’s passing.”
Garret, according to Langford, was a man who consistently volunteered his time with the car club and enjoyed the fact money is directed towards not-for-profits in the Foothills region.
Members involved with the Okotoks’ show n’ shine were also left reeling, as Garret was involved in that town’s event as well. The show was hosted the day after the accident, Langford said.
“(When) everybody saw each other and got together, there was probably more of a family kinship between our group and it’s...brought us all closer,” he added.
Before the service, which takes place 1 p.m. on Aug. 29, people are invited to bring their vehicles to High River’s Canadian Tire at 11 a.m. for the tribute cruise to Red Deer Lake United Church.
Additional drivers will join the cruise in the Aldersyde/Okotoks area, Langford said.
“It’s just a great example of the person he was and the lives he touched and affected,” he added. “Everyone wants to show their support and appreciation for him.”
A tribute will be made to Garret at High River’s upcoming show n’ shine on Sept. 25. Langford noted a permanent memorial plaque will be erected at Eamon’s station, the organization’s future club house.

Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion StandardWednesday, March 27, 2019
Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians.
"This is about more than pipelines," Caron says. "This is about government. This is about all the provinces having different issues. It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed if we don't stand up now."Although she was not part of the convoy to North Bay, Zaldinger was going to join it Tuesday morning for the rally in Ottawa as part of her own objective of "direct democracy."And direct democracy is possible, she said.Zaldinger pointed to a recent Amber Alert sent to cellphone users across the province ...
