Eldred Morrison Garrick

Eldred Garrick, also lovingly known as "Slim" or "Red", our beloved husband, father, and grandfather passed away suddenly from complications following surgery on December 12, 1998 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

He was born Nov. 22, 1925 in Levan, Utah to Morrison Hamilton and Zelma Garrick.

He served honorably in the U.S. Navy during World War II. He married the love of his life, Barbara Sproul on September 15, 1951 in Provo, UT. He was a devoted and much loved husband. As a respected mining engineer and geologist, he pursued his passion for over 50 years. He loved to cook and was an avid golfer, skier and overall sports enthusiast. His energy, optimism, and enthusiasm filled his family and friends lives with joy. His love for his grandchildren was only exceeded by their love for him. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his wife, Barbara; three children, Gaylene (Edwin) Van Zijll, Canyon Country, California; Gary, Greg (Janece), all of Salt Lake City; five grandchildren, Mercedes, Marshall and Vanessa Van Zijll and Whitney and Jake Garrick. He is also survived by his sister, Donna (Gary) Garrett, St. George; brothers, John (Amelia) Garrick, Newport Beach, CA; Ilyn (Nancy) Garrick, Orem; and Glenda Jo Allen, Colorado.

He was preceded in death by both his parents.

The funeral service will be held Thursday, December 17, 1998 at 11 a.m., at the Cottonwood Mortuary, 4670 So. Highland Dr., Salt Lake City, UT. A Viewing will be held one hour prior to the funeral.

The family would like to thank the I.C.U. staff at St. Mark's Hospital, Dr. Kurrus, Dr. Mackie, and a special thanks to Carolyn for their valiant efforts.
