Garret loved life. He loved being with people, whether family, closest friends or people he just met, he loved to talk about anything and everything. He was particularly passionate about the work he did for the Beta Theta Pi fraternity. Garret also loved to find ways to better himself, working out, attending mass on Sundays or his love of learning.
