Unhappy Local TDI club member passed away

I am sorry to report that Garrett "Garry" Billman has left our community. He suffered a heart attack after a reaction to a treatment for an illness while in the hospital on October 5th.

He was a veteran member of the club, joined in 2000. Username "gbillman".

He is survived by his wife, a son, a daughter, 2 '96 Passat TDIs, an '01 Jetta TDI, and an '85 300SD. He was an engineer for Boeing here in St. Louis. He was a great guy, great customer, great TDI-enthusiast, and he will be missed by all who knew him. He was excited too that one of his Passats was fast nearing the 300,000 mile mark....a true diesel fan if I ever saw one.

Oilhammer, you have a PM.

We can get Garry added to the "Gone But Not Forgotten" page.
