It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our son and brother, Garrett Donald Holm.
Garrett was born April 30th, 1999 at the Women’s Hospital in Winnipeg. He attended school in Portage la Prairie, and spent 8 months of Grade 11 at Teulon Collegiate. Garrett loved sports of all kinds. He played hockey for many years with the Portage Terriers Minor League, and one season with the Teulon Tigers. Garrett loved to spend evenings on the couch watching hockey, basketball, baseball, or football, sometimes even with 2 TVs and a computer set up so he could watch multiple games at once. He also loved video games, gambling, and took up golf which he loved.
Garrett had a knack for working with his hands as well as with numbers, and learned a lot working construction with Uncle Mike. In October, 2020, Garrett moved to Calgary, where he resided until present.
Garrett was predeceased by his Grampy, Donald Simcoe, January. 31, 2014 and his Grandfather, Les Holm, May 7, 2014. He will be greatly missed by his mom, Rhonda Simcoe Holm (Randy), his dad, Kenny Holm, his brother Kalen and his sister, Kylie. Also left to remember him are his Baba Joyce Simcoe, Grandma Janette Holm, and his uncles and aunts, Mike and Kathy Simcoe, Scott and Margaret Simcoe, Tim and Susan Simcoe, Bob and Barb Holm, Brian Holm (Kelly,) Mike and Miwa Holm, as well as his cousins, Aaron (Bethany) and Renee Simcoe, Thomas and Sarah Orchard, Huxley and Lindy Simcoe, Brittany (Aaron), Cameron and Nikki, Jeff, Jessica, Ryle and Dean Holm. He will leave behind many friends, and especially missed by his best friend Carter.
A celebration of Garrett’s life will be held in the summer for friends and family who wish to honour his memory.
