“Hubs and Dad”Gari was born September 6, 1956 to Frank and Beverly Pedroza in Murray, Utah he married Ann in 1981 and they have two wonderful sons, Philip and Issac. He is the third of four brothers.Although he is free of the pain of arthritis, it was not a peaceful passing. He fought like hell to stay as he felt that he had work to do and that he needed to take care of his little family, multitude of friends and cohorts.His passing has left a large hole in many people and places. He left us all way too early. He is preceded in death by his parents. Survived by his wife, sons, brothers and a multitude of aunts, uncles and cousins.Gari grew up in Kearns, Utah. He attended Kearns Jr. High and was student body president, inspiring many, and helping transform the Kearns High graduating class of 1974 into one of the closest classes ever. Gari went on to graduate from the “U” in planning, working as an intern for SLC and then as a planner at Price, Utah.As the arthritis began to take a toll on his body, he worked from home turning his “avocation” into his “vocation”, consulting and connecting people on various projects relating to his geometries with the intent of helping the world.Gari loved camping and the mountains. Because he could no longer hike he had to content himself with driving to the various vacation areas, speeding by rest areas with a vengeance! Everyone learned quickly not to drink any beverage while on the drive with “G”!Gari always honored Christmas and kept it in his heart the whole year. It is appropriate that he left with the angels this time of year.Funeral services will be held at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 4760 S. State Street, on December 23, 2011 at 12pm. A viewing/visitation will be afterwards from 1-3:30pm.
