Harry George Garlick

BOISE, Idaho - Harry George Garlick passed away peacefully on Tuesday evening, June 7, 2005 in Boise, Idaho. Harry was born September 15, 1917 to Harry Edward Garlick & May Collings Garlick. Harry Edward and May were both descended from early South Dakota pioneers. May's grandparents came to the Black Hills in 1878 to work the Homestake Mine. Harry Edward's grandparents were Elizabeth Dose Garlick, widow of Henry Dose of the 7th Cavalry, and Edward Garlick, also of the 7th Cavalry. Edward and Elizabeth settled at Fort Meade in 1878.

Harry George grew up in Sturgis, SD. Hunting and fishing were his main recreational activities, having grown up in a family of outdoorsmen. He graduated from high school in Sturgis and then worked for two years to save enough money to attend the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. His college education was interrupted by World War II. He spent three years serving his country in the Army Air Corps, much of which was spent at various schools across the country learning about building air strips. He spoke of his stint at Yale where lunches were often enhanced by the live music of the Glenn Miller Band. Harry spent approximately 18 months of his military duty in Guam building airstrips, under constant threat of enemy fire.

After the war, Harry returned to the States and married Dorothy Shelton of St. Louis, MO whom he had met during his stateside Army training. Harry and Dorothy settled in South Dakota while Harry completed his education at the School of Mines. Following graduation, he went to work for Peter Kiewit Sons Construction as an engineer. During these early years, his two children, Stephanie and Greg, were born.

Harry worked his way up to general superintendent for Kiewit, building many roads and airstrips including large sections of I-90 and major expansions at Ellsworth Air Force Base. His innovative thinking was responsible for many new concepts in road construction. He was also involved with construction of the nuclear warhead missile silos built all across western South Dakota.

Harry was also a devoted father. He saw that his children had horses to ride, and took them on many fondly remembered hunting and fishing trips. These trips often involved many members of Harry's extended South Dakota family. He dearly loved the tall timber and the wide open spaces of the Black Hills, and passed that love of the outdoors to both of his children.

In 1964 Harry was transferred to Fairbanks, AK where he was in charge of two phases of Chena Hot Springs Road, including pioneering the last 25 miles into Chena Hot Springs. In 1966 he went to work for Burgess Construction and was in charge of building present-day Airport Road from Barnett Street to University Avenue which, at the time, was the largest road project undertaken in Fairbanks.

One particularly cold winter while working for Burgess, Harry was "loaned" to the State of Alaska to help Jim Dalton survey the proposed railroad route to the Rampart Dam on the Yukon River. Most of their time was spent working in -50 degree weather in remote wilderness conditions. Unfortunately, the dam and railroad were never built.

In 1966 Harry and Dorothy divorced. Harry later met Liselotte Sherrer; they married in 1969 and soon moved to Idaho where Harry bought several businesses. One of those businesses was Robertson Auto Body which Harry managed for the next ten years. Harry and Lisa spent most weekends exploring Idaho in camper, boat, motorcycle, and afoot, and most hunting seasons pursuing elusive deer, elk, and pheasant.

Harry and Lisa sold the body shop in 1979 and moved to a country home just outside Emmett. Gardening and exploring Idaho continued to occupy most of their time. Harry enjoyed many woodworking projects and helping his son build a log home in the mountains. He also bowled, mostly to support Lisa's love of the sport. He never really conquered bowling, the "multiple gutter ball" being his specialty. But he always maintained his sense of humor, which was his real specialty. His smile and dry humor and wit were contagious. It was a pure joy to spend time with Harry.

Harry was a hard worker. He spent many long days and weeks in very tough construction work. He was loyal to his employers and spent long hours at his job in order to provide a better life for his family. He was a moral, responsible, and honest man; his word was his bond. A fine man, Harry was respected by all who knew him well. Frugal, as only someone who grew up during the depression could be, yet generous to a fault.

As fathers go, there are none finer. He was strict, yet loving and supportive. In a career that demanded so much of his time, he still put family, especially the kids, first, always setting high standards and providing good examples.

Harry is survived by his daughter Stephanie and her husband Chuck Ensign of Boise; son Greg Garlick and his wife Marcia Wing of Fairbanks and Boise; granddaughter Kasi and her husband Mitch Tucker of Everett, Washington. He is also survived by Dora Jean Garlick; Gary, Hanna Rose and Aaron Garlick; Fritz, Trina and Wyatt Garlick; and Kris Garlick and Billy Beatty, all of South Dakota and Wyoming. Harry was very recently preceded in death by his beloved wife of more than 30 years, Lisalotte Garlick.

A picnic to celebrate his life will be held at 11:00 a.m. Sunday, July 8, at Bear Butte State Park campground, northeast of Sturgis, off highway 79. Call 642-8324 for directions. The family will welcome all friends to share love, laughter and reminiscences.

Harry's family would like to thank the staff of Hillcrest Assisted Living for their cheerful kindness and care over the last few months.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the Idaho Humane Society or another favorite charity.
