 Garth was born in Taber on May 20, 1955 and raised on a farm north of Burdett. He loved to farm with his family and harvesting was his passion. Starting ‘Thacker Harvesting’ and traveling with his brother Shawn and son Cole were wonderful years full of adventure. Hunting and fishing with friends and family always made for laughs and great stories to be shared over a cup of coffee or a beer at the bar. 

 Garth was kind, loving and gentle. Always proud of his children and grandchildren he took great joy in watching them in their activities or gathering for an event. Garth enjoyed road trips with Flo and helping her grow a bountiful garden. We will all miss him dearly.
