Garrit A. Showalter, 28, Danvers, MN, formerly of Hibbing, died Friday, Sept. 21, 2018 in his home. He was born Oct. 30, 1989 in Hibbing to Brad and Anne Showalter.
Garrit loved anything to do with engines. Four-wheelers, snowmobiles, and jet-skis were only a few of the hobbies that he had. This passion led him to become a diesel mechanic where he traveled across the United States working on wind turbine farms. He loved video games, especially playing them with his nephew, Jayden. He also enjoyed preparing extravagant feasts which he learned how to do from his beloved Mother and Father. Garrit had a certain aura about him that made anyone who came in contact with him smile. He is greatly missed and will never be forgotten.
