Garth Bestor

Posted in All Obituaries

Harmony, passed away on October 22, 2014 at Gunderson Lutheran Hospital in LaCrosse, Wisc.

He was born to Verl and Gertrude “Gertie” (Hovey) Bestor in Granger, Minn. on November 13th, 1934. He spent his entire life living in the Harmony/Granger area, with the exception of his time spent as an aircraft electrician in the United States Air Force from 1954 to 1961. He spent a good deal of his service stationed in Japan.

After his service, he worked as a plumber for Broadwater Plumbing and Heating in Harmony before taking over the business in 1985 and running it as Bestor Plumbing and Heating until he sold it upon his retirement.

He married Shirley “Sally” (Sandvik) Engle of Harmony in 1961 and became a loving step-father to Terry Engle of Harmony, DebRae Sandvik (Engle) of Granger, and Douglas (Mary Jo) Engle of rural Cresco. Together with Sally, they had three more children: Ty (Dacia) Bestor of Harmony, Tonya Bestor of McHenry, IL, and Chad (Jill) Bestor of Kenai, AK.

Living in his country home six miles west of Harmony, Garth enjoyed spending his time doing anything outside: hunting, going to the Boundary Waters to fish in the summer and, in his later years, playing with his two dogs, Buddy and Sam. He could also be found playing cards with the guys at the Co-op in Granger on a regular basis.

Garth is survived by his two brothers: Wayne (Donna) Bestor of Houston, Minn. and Dallas (Connie) Bestor of Cresco; his six sisters: Wanda House of Spring Valley, Verlaine Wilson of Cresco, Georgia Hermanson of Harmony, Cheryl (Tom) Otteson of Decorah, and Susan (Gerri) Matson of Jefferson City, Mo.; his brothers-in-law, Keith (Betty) Sandvik of Rochester and Roger Hanson of Harmony; his six children and his six grandchildren, David, Jarid (Lindsi) and Travis “TJ” Engle, and Taylor (Kathryn), Whitney, and Blair Bestor; and, most recently, his great-granddaughter, Kymber Luna Bestor (Taylor).

Garth was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Sally, his brothers-in-law, Bud Hermanson and Lloyd House, and his sister, Caryl-Ann Hanson of Harmony.

A visitation will be held on Saturday, November 1 from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. at Lindstrom Funeral Home in Harmony, Minn.
