November 15, 1969 – June 28, 2022
Garrett was a resident of Langley and White Rock for much of his early life. In his late teens he discovered cycling and went on to compete in the Tour de White Rock and many other races under the banner of the Manitoba Cycling Association. Tragically, on the day he was to start training with the Canadian National team, he suffered a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) in a race in Edmonton in 1989 that forever altered his path through life.
Although he made a remarkable recovery and succeeded in various endeavors after that, he never was able to get past the subtle but debilitating after-effects of the TBI which led to Alcohol Use Disorder.
To those that knew him, he is remembered as a fun-loving, kind and caring individual with a wonderful smile and a willingness to help. He is survived by his father, Len (Debbie), his mother, Jill Cusack (Leigh), and his sister Nadya, aka Stacey, his niece Alexandra, nephew Sean and many wonderful and caring aunts, uncles and cousins.
The family would like to thank Barry, Alex and Thiago, at the Catholic Charities Men’s Shelter, who were so kind and helpful to Garrett in his final weeks and tried so hard to get him pointed in the right direction. Although there will be no public service, donations to Sources Community Services, the Catholic Charities Men’s Shelter or any other charity of your choice would be appreciated.
