Charlevoix Community Reformed Church where he served as both a Deacon and Elder. He also served on various committees, his favorite being Missions, of which he was passionate. He served on the Board of The Word of God for Asia ministry.

Garrett’s favorite pastime was golf. He met weekly with special friends, Jim Alton, Pete Petro and Thad McGehee, where nickels were passed back and forth and anyone in ear shot knew he was on the course when his “Puke-in my-socks” shout followed an errant shot.
