SIA Newsletter 8/30/11 (2) - Obituary for Jim Garoh

To All Strathmere and Whale Beach Homeowners and Visitors,

Many people in Strathmere knew Jim Garoh, who passed away Saturday morning in his hometown of Springfield, Pennsylvania. He had a house at 10 West Sumner Road. His sister is Peg Mueller who lives on the bay with her husband Bob at 412 Bayview Drive. He was a fantastic guy and a Strathmere historian of sorts.

The family has requested donations in his name to the Strathmere Volunteer Fire Company
