The now picture was actually taken in October of 1984.

From the October 6, 1989 issue of “Fire Scene”, the official newsletter of the Seattle Fire Department.
 
Glen William Garvie, July 29, 1940 to September 21, 1989, “You’ve Got A Friend”
 
Over three hundred Fire Fighters, family members, and friends gathered last week at Golden Gardens Park to pay final respects to a friend, father, and a co-worker.
 
Glen W. Garvie, Ladder 5/C, died September 21, 1989 from injuries he suffered in a fall from a tree while engaged in something that meant so much to him – his willingness to always be there to help others.
 
Glen, a 22-year veteran of the Seattle Fire Department, was born in Bashaw, Alberta, Canada on July 29, 1940. He was raised in Walla Walla before his family moved to the Seattle area. Glen lived in Edmonds and was the father of two daughters- Holly and Heather.
 
Glen entered the Department on January 30, 1967 and after Drill School was assigned to Engine 22. He worked most of his career on Engine 22 before requesting a transfer to Ladder 5 which was granted in April of 1985. Glen was a caring person who was well respected by all who came in contact with him. He was never one to make a big deal out of things, yet his career speaks of a man who was, indeed, a big deal.
 
On October 22, 1986, Glen received a Certificate of Meritorious Service and was awarded 120 merits for going beyond the call of duty to rescue an injured man who was topping a 60-foot fir tree when the top swung around and shattered the man’s left arm. This left the man in a state of shock and unable to descend to the ground. A 55-foot ladder was fully extended from the base of the tree, but the injured man was still 8-10 feet out of reach. Glen, showing total disregard for his personal safety, secured a rescue rope, a life belt, an extra length of rope, and climbed to the top of the nearly vertical ladder. Once at the top of the ladder, he talked the injured man down to the ladder, secured him, and walked him to the ground. At no time during the rescue did he hesitate, he knew exactly what had to be done and set about his task with craftsman-like efficiency. 
 
This was only one episode in the life of Glen Garvie. His death was a shock to us all. However, we can learn from his passing, even if only that as Fire Fighters, we need to allow ourselves to become closer to the reality of death if we are to better understand the importance of life. Yes, Glen, you will truly be missed, but we will never forget you for you were a true and devoted friend.

Born in Walla Walla, on July 13, 1941, to Robert and Delphine Golden, Genny stood out as an athletic girl and developed a strong work ethic, which continued throughout her life.

Genny is preceded in death by her husband, Harold Herigstad; and parents, Robert and Delphine (Rhoades) Golden.  She is survived by her sister, Maralyn (David) Carey of Walla Walla; her five children, Jennifer (Michael) Bittner and their sons Kaden and Declan of Kennewick, Robert Herigstad of Pasco, Douglas (Mary Jensen) Herigstad and their children Holden and Abdigail of Richland, Alison (Travis) Nelson and their children Josephine, Timothy and Charles of Richland, David Herigstad of Queens, N.Y.; as well as many friends.
