passed into Eternity on July 28, 2012. Though family and friends mourn the loss of his radiant smile, twinkling eyes, and fun-loving nature, we will cherish his memory in our hearts forever.

Garrett was a member of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity. He worked as a Computer Systems Engineer and created a glorious life for himself in "The Grand Canyon State". In the opportunity of his lifetime, Garrett backpacked in Europe last summer, visiting his ancestral Poland and several surrounding countries. Garrett enjoyed sports of all kinds, both as a participant and spectator. He especially enjoyed his gig as a designated heckler to opposing team members at many ASU games. Garrett is survived by his soul mate, Jessi Pray; his parents, Brian and Jan Gorzalski; his sister, Emily Gorzalski; his godmother, Lois Schmidt; his grandmother, Eve Gorzalski; other relatives, and many beloved friends in Arizona and Wisconsin.
