David my very good friend who bravely suffered in the last few years. Rest in peace.June 1, 2022
You loved your family and were very proud of your children.
Fond memories of you will always be with me: our first meeting as teenagers at Moodemere Oval, battling the surf at Woolamai, late nights playing cards and discussing books and poetry, playing volleyball at the Campbells. You were a great athlete. Played football for Noble Park and trained with Carlton
Yassou David till we meet again
Dearest Uncle Sam you were such a beautiful human being & someone who l have.very fond memories of from many different Garrett family events. But what l hold closest to my heart is when l l lived with you, Susanne & Joseph , (my god son) at Hunter St Richmond whilst attending Huntingdale Tech. This would be you’re last house in Melbourne before you all moved up to Benella. I will never forget waking up the morning of my birthday to find that you & Suzanne had got up extra early & made decorations & had balloons up everywhere for when l walked into the lounge. It was one of the most kindest & sweetest gestures ever done for me. And it just shows the type of person, well actually people as Suezanne was part of making that happen too. Such a simple gesture but one so effective as it showed me the love you had in you’re hearts for me & made me feel so special. I have never forgotten that morning & feel so blessed to have experienced it with you.June 2, 2022
Always smiling is how l saw you as a small child. Sometimes thinking does he ever stop smiling ? This is starting to freak me out a little, but l grew out of that. And there were many things that as l child l became neurotic about!🤪just ask any of my family members.
But definitely Uncle Sam was a Garrett through & through. All Paul (Ducka) & Mollies children have the biggest hearts. Ones where their genuine loving & caring for others always shines through above all. Showing kindness towards others is just part of their nature. This is because of their amazing parents & my grandparents & how they were raised. So all of us can give thanks for them molding us into the individuals we have become, with the gift of being a Garrett.
My heart goes out to his beautiful family Joe, the girls Mollie & Grace who are exceptional individuals & l know how proud my Uncle was of how far they’d come in life & what beautiful souls they have too. And to Suzanne. No words can take away the sadness you all feel from such a great loss but we can all feel happy knowing he’s finally at peace & back with his Mother & Father. And that should give us great comfort as we can be sure that’s where he is.
RIP. David Samuel Garrett .You are so very loved & will be missed.
Great memories of David from many, many years ago in Noble Park. Condolences to Paul, Ruth, Catherine, Suzanne and the extended family on the passing of David who was a very close friend of the Campbell family, especially my brother Bob (Robert). May you Rest in peace David, you will be sadly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing you.June 10, 2022
