A GoFundMe account has been set up for Garn. It says on the home page: “Today my sister experienced a loss no one ever wants to experience. She lost her husband in a roofing accident. I have started this campaign to assist in raising funds for the funeral costs. She will be the sole provider for her and their three children and will need a lot of love and support in the days to come. If you feel so inclined to donate, anything would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.”
