Garman V. Guthrie was born in Maryville Mo., to Glenn and Dora Guthrie on March 16, 1927. He passed away Feb. 15, 2021.

His family moved to Lodi, Calif., when he was six years old. He attended school in Lodi and served in the U.S. Navy in the Asian Pacific.

Garman was married to Agnes Gaub for 30 years and they had a son, Gary, and daughter, Linda. All have preceded him in death.

Garman owned and operated a body shop, towing and auto salvage yard and farmed a grape vineyard in the Stockton and Lodi area until his retirement.

He married Anna Marie Johnson in 1985. After Anna's retirement they traveled in their motor home for a year and a half, visiting most states and parts of Canada. They found what he called his “utopia” in Libby in 1997.

He enjoyed the beautiful Cabinet Mountains, the rivers and lakes, wild animals (especially those in his backyard), his yard and garden, fishing, motorcycling, flying, camping, traveling and working in his shop.

He is survived by his wife of 35 years; three grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and two stepsons and their families.
