Stephen T. Garrett Obituary
One of the greatest story tellers in the world, Stephen T. Garrett, 79, of Fishers, passed away Friday, January 2, 2015 at his home. Born March 5th, 1935 to Edward L. and Carolyn Kent Garrett in Zanesville, Oh. His parents preceded him in death, as did his step mother, Judy Garrett.

Steve grew up on Long Island, NY and in Coconut Grove, FL before graduating from Akron North High School (Akron, OH). He was a graduate of Kent State University on a wrestling scholarship and was a member of Phi Delta Theta. After graduation, Steve attended Officer Candidate School (OCS) as a Naval Aviator at Pensacola, FL attaining the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade (LTJG). Steve was a pilot during the Cuban Revolution. Steve began his career with US Gypsum as a Sales Representative in Fort Wayne, IN. Later, Steve was a partner in C & S Lathing and Plastering. Forming Terstep Company, Inc. in 1971, began the foundation of many new companies. Companies Steve influenced are too numerous to list.

Steve and Mary Patricia Miller were married in 1961. 3 children survive; Terrence (Bambi) Garrett of Noblesville, Steve Garrett Jr. of Indianapolis and Megan (Greg) Wiles of Noblesville. He was greatly loved by his grandchildren, Kyla and Kent Garrett and Garrett and Grace Wiles. February 15th, 1986 Steve and Jackie were married, they were inseparable. They traveled the world. Steve was a Slots "Champion" on multiple continents and at sea.

Steve was involved in many different pursuits and hobbies. He was invited to the US Olympic Trials as a wrestler, a drummer for the Gordon Pipers, a car collector, and an amateur road racer with SCCA and Vintage Racing. Steve raced for over 35 years at IRP, Mid-Ohio, Road America, east coast tracks and as far away as New Zealand. Steve and his race car "Tina" Turner were featured on Fox Sports after The Vintage Grand Prix of Pittsburgh.

Faith was important to Steve. He was an altar boy in the Episcopal Church. He shared his faith and experiences with all those around him. His gregarious personality combined with his infectious laugh, Steve never met a stranger. He had a wonderful way of helping others, with his giving soul. Steve was inventive, caring and giving, a true enabler of allowing other people to achieve their potential.

Visitation will be Wednesday, January 7th from 4:00 to 7:00pm, and Thursday, January 8th from 10:00 to 11:00 am prior to the service at 11:00 am officiated by Pastor Joe Freeman. All will take place at Randall and Roberts Funeral Home, 12010 Allisonville Road, Fishers, IN 46038.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donors make memorial contributions to their favorite charity.

Area 4 Director's Newsletter - November
Dear SCCA Friends,

Please find attached, another installment of the "SCCA news you can use", the Area 4 Director’s Newsletter.


There was a lot more to tell you, but I try to limit the Newsletter to two pages. For example:

  • Tomorrow (Saturday November 8) is our GLD Scheduling Meeting at my office in Dayton. The Agenda also includes the GLD Divisional Championships and other Divisional topics. Our Director is providing lunch.
  • SCCA Membership continues to climb. We were at 44,840 at the end of September, highest since 2009.
  • The TNIA schedule (read the attachment!) is well established for 2015. I can tell you where and when if you want to know.
  • The National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park is up and running. Things look very, very good.
  • More news saved for December.

Most of you receiving this email will also get a similar email from the National Office – same news in a slightly different format. I’d rather hit you twice than not at all. J

Best Regards,

Steve

Area 4 Director's Newsletter - May - July
Hello SCCA Area 4,

Summer is marching on. It has been a bizarre year for me, with real-life family issues diverting my SCCA time. These things have a way of working themselves out, and not always for the better. It reminds us that the time we spend in the club is precious and the friends we meet are even more so.

And so, it was great to see so many of you again at GingerMan this month. What a wonderful event, sponsored by Detroit Region and South Bend Region. First Class all the way! Thanks – we needed that!

This month, you get two Newsletters. I sent the May letter only via SCCA channels and some of you on this list missed it. So, you get two for the price of…none. Oh, you might also see this in slightly altered format through the Topeka connection.

As always, let me know how I can help you.

Regards,
Steve

Area 4 Director's Newsletter - March
Hello Great Lakes Division Members and Friends,

Please find attached another Area 4 Director’s Newsletter. I am expanding the distribution of the Newsletter by sending it to all GLD members with an active email address too. So, some of you will be getting this for the first time, while others may receive 3 copies (sorry about that).

I don’t know about you, but I have had enough of the cold and snow and am looking forward to getting our race season going. My goal is to attend more Solo and RallyX events this year. So, if you see me at your event, please say "hello" and let me know how we can make our club better. All ideas are considered!

Yours for the Sport,
Steve Harris
