Maher- Peacefully surrounded by his loving parents at the L.H.S.C.-Victoria Hospital, London on Monday January 15, 2018. Garrett Lee Maher, age 35 yrs. of Corunna. Much loved and treasured father of Madison Smids-Maher. Loving son of Dave and Cynthia Maher of Courtright. Dear brother of Darren Maher of Calgary. Garret will be fondly remembered by; his grandfather, Jim Dawe of Courtright; his aunts and uncles, Linda Trotto (Cosmo), Bernie Dawe, Marilyn Farrington (Don) and Brian Maher (Judy) and his cousins, Vanessa, Julianna, Jonathan, Melissa, Sabrina and Adrian. He was predeceased by his grandparents, Voida Dawe and Theresa and Albert Maher. Garrett was a very loyal and proud employee of Cope Construction for many years. Born on November 5, Guy Fawkes Day, it was only fitting that Garrett loved anything to do with fire; be it lighting bonfires or setting off fireworks. He was an avid cook who enjoyed trying new and favoured family recipes and growing his own vegetables and herbs.

So sorry to hear of Garrett’s passing. He was a great father to Madison. Our hearts go out to her as well as you all. He would often stop out on the porch to say hello when visiting you guys. The Cope truck was always in the neighborhood. Our deepest condolences.
Our deepest sympathy. Garrett was a super nice guy. I met him about 12 years ago, he was just getting into estimating and brought in a quote for a job we were working on. He stayed longer then usual we talked for a good hour. Every time I would see him we would have a conversation, he did his job very well and was well liked in the construction industry.
RIP Garrett…..so so young

Dave, Sherri and I are so sorry for yours and Cynthia’s loss at this time. There are no words that can give you any peace right now I’m sure. Just know that you and your family are in my family’s thoughts and prayers.
My Family and I would like to extend our deepest sympathies. I worked on Construction Projects with Garrett since his first days with Cope Construction. We would start our discussions about the projects we were working on together and would end up talking about our kids. It was always easy to tell how deeply he loves his Daughter. Garrett and I had our hockey game type relationship but at the end of the day we were good friends, respected each other and I will miss him very much. So sorry for your loss. I am very sad that I will be unable to attend and pay my respects. Best wishes Madison, your Dad spoke of you with nothing but Pride.

I’m so sorry to hear of this tragic death. Your family has always been a good friend to us. And we remember when you were there for us when our Mom died. And Mme.
