I want to express my love for this great guy, Garet Barney. He was in my zone in the mission field and even though I did not get to spend much time with him, I recognized a light and love and joy radiating from him constantly. An experience that has always been a precious memory for me was when Elder Barney came over and visited with me during some down-time my last night in the mission field. He asked me about my progress with the mission scripture mastery program, and I lamented that I had come up a few scriptures short of completing it. Elder Barney lit up with excitement and encouraged me to finish memorizing the remaining scriptures and told me he would pass them off on the ride to the airport the next day. I did, and he kept that promise. I received my mission pin in the mail a week or so later. It sounds like a simple thing, but I was touched by his interest in helping me reach that goal and I have always been proud of it and have always cherished that memory of my good friend, Elder Barney. I know he is not resting, but that he is certainly at peace as he shares his love and his testimony of the gospel with everyone he can reach on the other side of the veil. I express heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. We all will miss him so much until we meet again.

I met Garet once on a Science field trip March 18th. He had a great smile and really enjoyed the trip he took with his son to the Underground and the Seattle Art Museum. He was very quiet but was constantly smiling. May God bring peace to his family. You will all be in our prayers during this difficult time.

Garet was an amazing person! I am struggling to know what to write because there are so many wonderful things I could say. Garet was one of the most humble, loving, giving individuals I have ever met. I don't think I ever heard him say an unkind word to anyone, and his smile and laugh could cheer up anyone. I will never forget hearing him sing for the first time, and his performances always left me wanting to hear more. Garet was a true friend in every way, and I'm sure I am not alone in saying that his influence helped shape my life. He made the world a better place just by being in it. And he gave the BEST hugs! I am still in shock to hear he is gone. God bless you, Mindy. Our prayers and thoughts will be with you.

Mindy, I just learned today of Garet's passing. I'm so sorry.......... Please know you and your family have a place to stay if you ever have occasion to visit Logan (natwhitt@gmail.com). Yes we have room for all of you. And if any of your kids want to go to their parents alma mater, they have a helpful, supportive uncle in Logan. I would love to see Garet through your children.

Garet was a lifeline for me at Ricks College. I feel so blessed to have been associated with him. He was such an example to me of joy, laughter, and great faith. In fact, his prayer of faith resurrected my old dying Chevy suburban so we could go visit MiMa and MiDad in Haley, ID. Together we fought off squirrels flying out of garbage cans and dominated on the fooseball table. He clearly qualified for graduating early from this mortal existence. I sorely miss him but celebrate and rejoice over the valiant, selfless, and successful life he chose to live. Well done Good Brother Garet (GBG)!

My first memory of Garet Barney: I was the Ward Mission Leader in our church. A new member was the same age Garet's oldest son. I took his son to teach the lesson. After the lesson I drove the son home. It was late and dark outside​. Garet was working on his car, trying to put in an alternator while listening to General Conference talks on his phone. He was having a few difficulties getting the alternator installed. I offered to help. He was appreciative. We worked for over 2 hours diagnosing the problems back to a metal piece off the new alternator that had broken​ off inside the engine. We fished out the broken metal piece with a magnet. He told me he never would have figured out how to diagnose the problems back to the new alternator. He and his wife rewarded me with a fudgy brownie with green frosting on top. Shortly after he was called to be the Bishop and asked that I be the Ward Executive Secretary or his administrative assistant. We spent many hours in council together. Once I asked him why he chose me to be his Executive Secretary, he said he felt a special kinship with me that night I helped him. I felt the same way about him. He was like a brother to me. I loved him. I will miss him. He will be remembered fondly.

Mindy,
My heart goes out to you, your children and also Garet's parents at this difficult time of loss. Some people are born with such big hearts and joy for life that everyone who meets them are left feeling better about themselves and life, Garet was that type of person! I remember looking at this big burly man with such a tender heart and thinking how special he was. And then there was his laugh and what a smile, not to mention such a gifted singer. What a wonderful life you both have shared together and such beautiful children you have. You both truly showed everyone what a forever love looks like and I hope you find great comfort knowing he is yours and you are his forever.I love you and your children, especially Jaden. May God Bless you and your family.

Garet you were a breath of fresh air. You were humble, stood by your beliefs, hard worker, passionate, loving, funny, had the Lord in your heart, always proud of your family and have accomplished more in life than most of us in your short time on Earth. I know your spirit will always be with your beautiful children and wife. Garet was a team player on my Budget team when he first came to Keyport. I'm very proud of him and how well he did in support of Keyport. You made many friends everywhere you went. We shall miss you and I like Lisa will have your funny facial expression on the roller coaster ride forever in my memory. Always made me smile. You're probably blushing right now.
