Dan Garbett

Carter “Dan” Garbett, 69, passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully, the afternoon of

Monday, October 31, 2022 in Pocatello, Idaho. Dan was born on May 21, 1953 to Harold D. Garbett

and Beverlie Carter Garbett. He was welcomed to his family by his brother David, age six and his

sister Kathy, age two. His sister Laurie completed the family three years later. Dan grew up in

Pocatello. He was a happy, active boy growing up in the Greenacres school area. He played Little

League baseball; his dad was the coach for many years. Dan attended Greenacres Elementary,

Alameda Junior High and graduated from Highland High School in 1971. He attended Idaho State

University for two years and then two years at the University of Utah where he graduated with a

Bachelor’s degree in Art. Dan went on to the University of California at Davis and received his

Master’s in Fine Arts degree.

Dan was a substitute teacher with the Pocatello School District for many years. Dan looked

forward to spending his summers at Hood River Oregon where he loved to windsurf on the Columbia

River. He made this trip for over 30 years and was jokingly called the “mayor” of the gorge. He

owned his childhood home in Pocatello and loved hiking the mountains and hills around town with

his beloved dog Lucky. He was an adventurer and loved kayaking on the Portneuf. Dan’s biggest

love and passion was his art. He painted, sculpted, and produced many works throughout the years.

He told his sister many times that he had a happy life.

Dan was preceded in death by his grandparents, his father Harold Dean Garbett, mother

Beverlie Carter Garbett, brother David Dean Garbett (Ruth), and sister, Laurie Garbett Miles (Scot).

Dan is survived by his sister Kathy Garbett Miles (Byron), five nieces and nephews, and nine grand

nieces and nephews.
