We've talked a lot about the broadcasting voice Garrett was so well known for. But we've also talked to some of his closest friends about another talent he shared with so many -- his singing voice.
Sean Turgeon met Garrett while working for METRO video services.
"He started flying, he was in the air and I was on the ground it was kind of cool," said Turgeon. "We were covering it from both ends."
And that's where years of friendship began.
Patrick Broadway met Dave through the local music scene in Houston. The three were involved in several bands, including Octane and Cosmic Noise. And they were supposed to practice Tuesday night. Instead, two of them are remembering the dear friend they say was so forthcoming he wore his heart on his sleeve.
"It's hard to accept," said Broadway. "I still can't remotely accept that he would no longer be with us."
From his music to his job in SkyEye HD...
"He loved what he did," said Turgeon. You could see it in his eyes and hear it in his voice."
Sean says Dave was always good with kids, but it was never more evident than when he became a father himself.
"I've seen him mold into this man who really loved his family," said Turgeon.
His son, Adam, is now four years old.
"To me, it was what a father should be," said Broadway. "I looked at him and said, 'That's amazing' and it made him all the better of a person."
As the two remember the countless songs and memories they shared, they say their songs now will never be complete.
"There's an empty spot in your life where he can only live in here now and hopefully we can find a way to preserve that music of him because he did have a beautiful voice," said Broadway. "And he was just an awesome person."
Friends of Dave Garrett ask for prayers for them and Dave's family, and most of all, his son, Adam.
