Jarret was happiest helping others. He and Gary spent many happy hours planning and working in their gardens. Then Jarret would distribute the produce around the neighborhood. He mowed the neighbors’ yards and helped anyone with any project. He never missed a holiday or the little ones’ birthdays. His gifts were amazing, especially for the little ones. His cheerful, booming voice will be missed by all.
