Gary William Garrett, 74, of South Burlington, Vermont went to be with his heavenly father on April 11, 2020 at his winter home in Leesburg, Florida, due to complications from exposure to Agent Orange.

Gary grew up in Burlington, VT and joined the US Army in 1964. He served in Germany, then volunteered for duty in the Republic of Vietnam with The Big Red 1. He later reenlisted for a tour of duty with the US Air Force, eventually finishing his military career as a US Army Recruiter for the Vermont Army National Guard. In retirement, Gary enjoyed driving the school bus for the Shelburne Central School for several years. He loved seeing the smiling children every day.

Gary loved trading vehicles and you never knew what he was going to come home with next. His other passions were deer hunting, boxing, long back road drives, frequenting casinos, and watching the races at Thunder Road. He and his wife Diane loved spending time in their Florida winter home to escape the cold Vermont weather.

Gary was predeceased by his parents Gordon (Bud) and Rosita (Rose) (Boylan) Garrett of Williston, VT. He is survived by his wife Diane (Scribner) Garrett; son Shawn Garrett and his wife Kimberly (Wells) Garrett along with grandson Colby Garrett, of Colchester, VT; brother Gordon Garrett of Milton, VT; sister Lisa Krans of Winooski, VT; brother-in-law Norman Scribner of Cambridge, NY; sister-in-law Audrey Putnam of Bridgewater Corners, VT; nieces: Hillary, Jane, Joan, Jill, Joyce, Karen and Celia; nephews, Jason, Brandon, Lance and Brendon.

Diane wishes to thank the many family and friends who helped Gary through this journey: Shawn, Kim, Colby, Royal, Roger, Larry, Charlotte, Annie, Terri, Tommy, Patty, Lynda, Becky, Gary, Bruce & Mary Jane, Jeffrey, Sheri, Paul, Frank, Norman, Frank & Jeanne, Howard, Lynda, and Bob. It really did take a village to help us move through this stage of life, and for that we were truly blessed.

In lieu of flowers, be an angel.

Please support or adopt a veteran. The journey from war to home never ends. The scars of battle live deep within their hearts and souls for a lifetime and the pain cannot be healed. Many try to regain a regular home life while struggling day and night for the rest of their lives. Your time spent with a veteran is truly invaluable. You could take them to a game, or simply for a ride or a walk. Drive them to their VA appointments, or help them make phone calls or with the extensive VA paperwork required to apply for assistance. The VA in White River Junction, VT is a great resource. Being an angel doesn't cost a dime.

God Bless our veterans. God Bless America.

Due to the current restrictions visiting hours and burial will be private. A Memorial Mass with full military honors will be scheduled and announced at a future date. Please visit to share your memories and condolences.

I remember well when, as a little girl, Gary would come visit his folks dressed in uniform. Such an impressive figure! I remember his laughter, and the time he put pepper on my thumb to try to get me to stop sucking it. How he laughed, lol! Later, I had the privilege of babysitting for Gary's and Diane's firstborn. My deep condolences go out to Gary's family much love to you all. Rest in peace, Gary, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for your service.

With the loss of Gary we all have suffered a great loss. Gary was so big hearted. He was thoughtful, loving and giving. Gary was so proud of his family. His son and grandson in particular. He welcomed a group of Diane’s friends into his home every hunting season. We in turn drove him out! We love you, Gary. You will be so greatly missed. Thank You for being the man you were. Priscilla

To Gary's Family,
We are so sad to learn of Gary's passing. Both of us have great memories of bowling on the same league with Gary in, Essex Junction, many years ago. He was always so friendly and funny.
Please know how deeply sorry we are for your loss.
John Provoncha and Ann Dewyea.
