Garrett Ibbitson Obituary, Death – It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Garrett Donald Ibbitson, a remarkable young soul from Fort Lawrence, Nova Scotia. Garrett departed this world on the morning of Friday, July 7, 2023, at the Dr. Georges Dumont University Hospital Centre, leaving behind a void that can never be filled.
Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Garrett was the beloved son of Dan and Cheryl (Chrest) Ibbitson. Throughout his life, Garrett exemplified kindness, compassion, and an unwavering passion for motorcycles, aviation, and animals.
He held a deep concern for the less fortunate and dedicated himself to making a positive impact in their lives. His rescue cat, Little One, and his cherished 1995 Yamaha Virago held special places in his heart, symbolizing his freedom and joy.
Garrett’s musical talents were exceptional, bringing joy to those around him. He will be dearly missed by his loving parents, as well as his brother Ty of Roland, Manitoba, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins who cherished his presence.
The Jones Family Funeral Centre, located at 70 Church Street, Amherst, Nova Scotia, is entrusted with the arrangements during this difficult time. A private service will be held to honor Garrett’s memory, with details to be shared at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia or The CHU Dumont Foundation, both of which were causes close to Garrett’s heart.
The family extends their deepest gratitude to the dedicated doctors and staff at the Moncton Hospital and Dr. Georges Dumont University Hospital Centre for their exceptional care and support.
As we bid farewell to Garrett, let us remember the light he brought into our lives and the lasting impact he made. May his soul find eternal peace, and may his memory continue to inspire acts of kindness and compassion in all who knew him.
