Obituary

Earl W. Garverick, Jr., 77, of Dewart, peacefully passed away Tuesday, November 16th, 2021 at Ohesson Manor, Lewistown where he has resided after he became ill with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Born October 4, 1944, in Jersey Shore, he was the son of the late Earl W. Sr., and Mabel G. (Yost) Garverick.  On February 10, 1968, he married the former Sheryl A. Trostle and together they have celebrated 53 years of marriage. 

Earl loved to garden.  While living in Mifflinburg his vegetable and flower gardens were the talk of the town, with many people often driving by to admire his gardens.  He loved spending time with children outside in his garden and looking at the goldfish and koi in his fish pond.  Earl cherished all the time he could spend with his family and friends.

He was a member of Delaware Run Wesleyan Church, Watsontown. 

In addition to his wife, Sheryl, he is survived by his three children: Luke, Mark, and Ruth; eight grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and three brothers:  Danny, Raymond, and David.

Preceding him in death besides his parents was a great-grandchild.
