My husband Roger Foster worked with Garland at BNSF Railroad. Roger retired 2011. Garland would call some of the old railroaders to get together for lunches every few months to stay connected, needless to say Roger was shocked to learn of Garland's passing. Our sympathies to the family.

I will miss seeing Garland. He seemed to be everywhere, always with a smile and a wonderful wit and sense of humor. While his loss saddens me I wouldn't want him to suffer. It will leave a hole in many lives, including mine, when I bowl or go to the ballgames and miss hearing his infectious laugh. . Thank you, Garland, you were a really good man and will be remembered fondly by many. Gale Wickell
