Syd Garlick of Blenheim passed away at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance on Thursday, July 30, 2020. He was born in England 89 years ago to the late George Ernest & Daisy May (Storey) Garlick. In 1958, Syd and his wife Pamela Joan (Hill) packed up their young daughter Kim and moved to Canada to start a new life. Soon after their move, they were blessed with their second daughter Trish. Syd worked for many years as a carpenter for John Faas in Ridgetown before striking out on his own. He crafted ice boats and small sail boats for families. In his spare time, he enjoyed making and flying model airplanes and was a member of the Chatham Aeronauts Model Flying Club. He had a keen interest in astronomy which he shared with family and friends.
Syd loved and was loved by his family; his daughter Kim Lindsay (late husband Rob) and Trish Miller (husband Chris) and his granddaughter Danielle (Robidas). He was predeceased by his wife of 49 years Pamela on February 4, 1999, his brother Clifford and his sister Gladys Legue.
Once Syd could no longer drive, he was very grateful for the assistance of Brent Paine. He will also be missed by nieces Betty, Barb, and friend Ray.
A private family graveside service conducted by Pastor Bill Terris will be held at the Morpeth Cemetery. Friends wishing to remember Syd with a memorial donation are asked to consider Heart & Stroke Foundation.
