He never missed an opportunity to speak to someone about salvation. Many lives were touched through his ministry. Garrett was an entrepreneur at heart. During his ministry, Garrett pioneered several churches, starting in Camas, Washington shortly after marriage and attended services in Vancouver, Washington. From Camas, they moved to Morton where he pastored for about a year. In 1969, Garrett and Pat moved to Wenatchee where they started a church, which is now Life Church on Rock Island Road, East Wenatchee. In 1979, Garrett felt the calling to move to Okanogan/Omak, Washington where they once again pioneered a church. Garrett started a jail ministry and was able to touch many lives. After 11 years (1990), they returned to the East Wenatchee church and pastored. In 2009 Garrett retired from the ministry due to health issues. Garrett and Pat moved to Mesa, Arizona where they enjoyed retirement. In 2015, they moved back to Washington and lived in Yakima until 2020 when they moved to East Wenatchee until his departure on September 21, 2022. Garrett's life was truly a life of sacrifice to Jesus. He was a devoted true love to his wife and loved his family wholeheartedly. Garrett rest in your freedom, we will see you one day.
