In Memory of Charles Lewis Garrett 1932 - 2015
« on: April 04, 2015, 10:33 »
It is with great sadness, that we have lost a wonderful person as Charles Garrett.
He passed away on April 3rd 2015.
His passing will be greatly missed by most detector people in the world.
A very cherished friend of ours during the many years we were involved with Garrett.
We both had a very strong understanding of the Australian detector market and we worked closely together during that time.
He is one of the few within the Garrett Company that we had great respect for.
Our sympathy and thoughts go out to his wife, Eleanor and his 3 children.
Rest in peace dear friend.
You will always be in our hearts and never forgotten.
Phil, Linda, Jordan & Troy.

Yes Phil what a great guy. He did come to OZ just after Garrett detectors was released in OZ. A pioneer who developed a large range of detectors which resulted in Kevin Heiller finding the Hand Of Faith with the ads deepseeker. Kevin has also passed on.

My deepest condolences to his wife and family.

When i first sold Garrett Detectors in Melbourne the distributor then was Arnold Muller who would have long past on as he was getting on then and i am 77 this year.

Regards Ray Beepn.
