Garth Robson was born on Nov. 1, 1939, in Grand Forks, North Dakota, and Jesus took him home on Dec. 6, 2020.
He loved living most every minute of his life. He served proudly in the Marines right out of high school. If you know Garth, you would have a hard time believing that he then pursued a short career as a hair stylist. He then married Gale Bakke and had four children: sons Greg, Garett (Amy), and Grant (Shannon), and his daughter Ginger Strand (Wade).
During this time, Garth worked in construction until he found a career in real estate in his early 50s. Garth loved doing real estate because he loved working with people. He will always be remembered for his sense of humor and his constant stream of hilarious “sayings.” If he gave you a hard time, then you knew he liked you.
After Garth retired, he kept busy working out at the gym in the morning, then relaxing in the sauna afterward; he loved his Sauna. He would then go home and have lunch with his wife of 59 years. After lunch, like clockwork, he would head up to the VFW in the Heights to mingle with his friends. Garth could also never turn down a good card game. He spent many of his afternoons playing cards with his friends around town. The rest of Garth’s spare time was spent tinkering around with his rentals. He enjoyed staying busy!
Garth will be missed as a husband, dad, grandfather, great grandfather and friend.
A celebration of his life will take place in a future date due to Covid 19.
