Barbara, Clayton, Michael, Selam & Marcus:

Sending all my love and positive energy during this time. My heart hurts that Garrett is no longer physically w/ us, but it helps knowing that he is with the Lord, that we’ll continue to feel his positivity & spirit around us, and that we’ll see him again someday. Reflecting on memories… where to begin… I can’t imagine my name carried a great connotation in the Schwerin household in elementary ;) Every Christmas and Valentine’s Day having to be on-edge about what item might temporarily go missing next, who could blame you. Fortunately, we had the great teachers at Traut, like Mrs. Parker and Mrs. Whitcomb in these situations, who taught us integrity (Garrett finally learned; I think my 6th grade Valentine’s card said something like “It’s the thought that counts”, this time with no diamond necklace “borrowed from his mom” or any of Clayton’s $50 bills enclosed). Garrett, Taylor, and I loved our fancy pens in 4th & 5th grade and would trade them; I’d trade mine that I knew were low on ink but as soon as I thought I was the smart one Garrett stopped trading and started charging – a smart businessman and always one step ahead of us. Mr. O’Connor’s 9th grade speech class was the greatest ever (Eric cracked me up over the live-stream when he brought this up!)… Garrett, Eric, Rick, (I think Jared?), Emily, Abbey, and me all in one class – we all knew Mr. O'Connor woke up every a.m. thinking, “What on earth did I do to deserve this?” Garrett & I shared our love for football and baseball games, and I’ll never forget the tailgating we did – the ones as kids at CSU’s stadium and the ones for the Broncos when we could finally buy beer (legally). We stayed in touch throughout life and maintained a friendship that dated back to the 2nd grade. He was hardworking, empathetic, kind & non-judgmental of others, and a very loyal friend. I feel so lucky to have known your son/brother/uncle.

We sure will miss you, G-man!
Lauren

Dearest Schwerin Family,
Words can’t express the deep sadness you are all experiencing during your loss. I recall meeting Garrett occasionally when he would stop by the Alliance Construction offices back in the early 2000’s. He was always smiling, had a sweet shyness about him at his young age and was always very polite. He will be missed! We send our deepest sympathies and pray for the family as you navigate through this difficult time.

Keeping you in our prayers,
Jennifer, Rob & Taylor Anderson

Dear Schwerin Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. I could truly see how loved and admired Garrett was throughout the coming weeks at the Gilpin house. I am truly blessed to know Garrett and will remember all the times we had going to Bronco games. He was truly an awesome person to be around and to live with. I will remember him for his compassion, humor, and his thoughtfulness towards others.
With love,
Patrick McGuire

Dearest Schwerin Family,
Our hearts and love are with you all during this unimaginable time. My first memory of Garrett was at Lake Powell as we races jet skis around like absolute maniacs! Sending hugs and love your way, we are truly sorry for your loss.
