Garth Redmond of Calgary passed away on Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at the age of 45 years. Garth will be dearly missed by his parents, Clark and Arlene Redmond of Calgary; two brothers, Todd Redmond (Brenda) of White Rock, BC and Darren Redmond of Calgary; two sisters, Dawn Redmond and Karen (Ken) Froese, both of Calgary; and his two nieces, Alyssa Froese and Georgia Redmond; as well as many friends across western Canada.
Garth spent the majority of his life in the restaurant, hospitality and music industry where he met many lifelong friends throughout Western Canada. He was proud of his involvement over the past four years with the “Taste of Calgary” where he was able to make a contribution and reconnect with many friends.
Garth’s travels took him throughout Canada, however, he was most fond of his Manitoba roots. Garth recently visited his friends and relatives in Winnipeg where they graciously welcomed him home with open arms and love and affection. This meant so much to Garth and left an indelible mark in his heart.
We are grateful to all his friends, here in Calgary and abroad, that have come back into his life and offered so much care and support to both Garth and our family.
