In Memory of Charles Lewis Garrett 1932-2015 April 03 2015

It is with great sadness that we share the news that our founder, Charles L. Garrett, passed away peacefully and of natural causes early this morning, April 3, 2015.
 
Since he and his wife Eleanor founded Garrett Electronics in 1964, their original garage business has grown to become the world’s largest manufacturer of metal detection equipment. He will be dearly missed by many, but his legacy will endure.
 
The attached obituary contains information about Mr. Garrett’s life and accomplishments, as well as memorial service details. Our Marketing team will be posting a memoriam to Charles Garrett this afternoon on the company website and on our social media page.
 
Garrett Metal Detectors will continue under the direction of Eleanor Garrett and her son Vaughan, who has become very active in the management of the business. Eleanor and Vaughan Garrett plan to carry on the legacy of Charles Garrett, maintaining the high standards of American made products and superior customer service that the Garrett brand stands for.
 
 
Best Regards,
James Hurst
Vice President
Director of Sales/Marketing
