Bob Garrett Memorial Fund

Raised by 141 people in 12 months
Robert Dylan (Bob) Garrett was a radio professional, husband, father and friend to many. Bob worked at such famed radio stations as WHPT, WYNF, WEBN, WJBX and WRXK.  He was one half of the Zito and Garrett show, which quickly rose to become Southwest Florida's #1 rated morning radio show. Bob had battled respiratory issues for most of his adult life, which he finally succumbed to on February 12, 2017. Your contributions will go directly to Bob's wife, Lynne, to help with these sudden, unexpected expenses, and towards their son Nathan's college education. Anything given will be much appreciated. Thank you!

Hello everyone,

As I struggle to grasp what has happened I also struggle to find words to accurately express my gratitude for each one of you who has contributed to this fund. The outpouring of love for us through phone calls, messages, hugs, cards, this and more has given me bits of strength to get me through each day.

I am not able to even think about the future at this time as this is still so new. But I see that so many are able to think for me right now and for that I am eternally grateful. The kindness and generosity from each of you has touched my heart deeply.

So thank you Jeff Zito for setting this up and to those who have shared it and/or contributed. I also thank Rick, Eddie, Peter, Gentry, BJ, Frank, Linda, Bree and others who are still working on events or ideas. It is evident that Bob was easy to love and made such strong friendships in all the places he lived from Michigan to Rhode Island to Florida to Ohio and back to Florida.

I hope to also thank everyone individually but I wanted to start with this post. I know Bob is smiling from above as he sees the love and support being given to Nathan and me.

Thank you again and God bless each of you and your families.

Much love,
Lynne Garrett

I enjoyed Bob's company when he was working at WEBN. He was always cheery. Always fun to talk with. It's the way I'll always remember him. May his memory be eternal. My deepest sympathies to you Lynne.
