Charles “"Charlie"” R. Garrett
May 6, 1941 – - November 8, 2014
It is with deep regret and sadness that the Officers and Members of Hereford Volunteer Fire Company announce the passing of
Charlie Garrett on November 8, 2014.
Charlie was an active life member of Hereford Volunteer Fire Company. During his years of service Charlie held various offices within the company. He served on the Board of Directors, held the line offices of Engineer and Assistant - Engineer and served on several truck committees. He also served on numerous fund raising committees such as pit beef, oyster-turkey suppers, fall festival, as well as with the carnivals that the fire company held up until the 60’s. Charlie was very active with pit beef, oyster-turkey suppers, Breakfast with Santa Claus and Easter Bunny.
After the Summit Manor was built, for years Charlie took care of the grounds, mowing, trimming, mulching and pulling weeds in the flower beds. He kept the fire property perfectly manicured and cared for it as if it were his own property. Charlie could not stand to see the grounds not properly taken care of.
Charlie was your need to go to guy. He was always there without any questions, to help in any way he could.
Rest in Peace Brother, you will truly be missed.
