Obituary for Garth Derek Lapp

Lapp, Garth Derek 1933 - 2020 passed away peacefully at his home in North Saanich on November 11th after a brave battle with cancer. Garth was born and raised in Victoria and attended Mt View High School. He married Ina (nee Murray) who he met when they were in their teens and together they raised three boys, John, Richard and Michael. Garth joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1952 where he was stationed in Trenton Ontario.

Returning to Victoria in 1957, Garth opened one of the first television repair businesses in Victoria, Ace TV, which he successfully owned and operated until 1976. After selling the business, Garth obtained his Class 1 license and pursued a life long ambition to become a long haul trucker, eventually retiring in 2002. Garth had a lifetime of involvement with cars and motorcycles, and was a longtime member of the Victoria Motorcycle Club where he won several events which he participated in. He raced in various different events, and would travel to both the US and the interior of BC to compete.

Garth is predeceased by his wife Ina of 42 years, sisters Judy and Dianne. He is survived by his second wife Caroline of 23 years, sons John, Richard, Michael, and stepdaughter Tammie. Grandchildren Jenna, Ryan and Teri, and great grandchildren Evan, Jacob, Charlotte and Scarlett.

My condolences go out to Garth's family. Cousin Garth and I had a number of conversations, especially over the past few years. I enjoyed his company in person and over the phone. He and I shared our regret that our family hasn't spent a great deal of time together over the years, like some families do. I hope that we can all get together in the coming months to raise a glass to Garth. In the meantime, my condolences go out to Caroline, John, Richard, Michael and the entire Lapp family.
