have a memory or condolence to add?


September 14, 2019

My late husband Ralph and I were patients of Dr. Garber for many, many years before his retirement. He always made visits very comforting with his sense of humor. I am sorry for your loss. Maybe if there is a hereafter Ralph and he will cross paths at sometime and they can catch up. Again, my deep sympathy.

Clayton walked into his office in Lynn the summer of 1956 with no appointment , a broken crown, & just out of the Air Force . Dr. Garber was just setting up his new office & not really ready for patients but he said, "fine, come on in" & fixed the crown . That began a long relationship that lasted over 60 years. I was terrified of dentists but he cured me of that fear with his patience .
When my dad was unable to climb stairs due to advanced Parkinson's , Dr. Garber simply came to him . He treated my dad in the front seat of the car.
Please accept our deepest sympathy for your loss . He will be greatly missed but has left wonderful memories of a life well-lived.
