Obituary for Sherwood "Bud" Orlo Garms

Sherwood “Bud” Orlo Garms, age 97, died Tuesday, March 5, 2019 in Crossroads Care Center, Worthington, MN. He was born April 13, 1921, in rural Jackson County to William and Minnie (Hanson) Garms. He grew up on a farm east of Round Lake, MN, was baptized in the Norwegian Lutheran Church, attended Country School #128 through 8th grade, and graduated from Round Lake High School. He married Edith Lucille Carlson on October 10, 1947.
As a youth he was active in 4-H and raised champion Shropshire sheep, and as an adult served as a Leader. Throughout his life he served on various community boards and was a Mason and Shriner; however, his main interest was always farming, and he was proud to be a farmer. He and his wife spent their entire lives raising their children and farming Section 21 in Round Lake Township, a quarter of which was owned by his grandfather. They spent many winters in Arizona, but they always returned to the farm in the spring to plant the crops. He continued farming until he permanently moved to Ecumen Meadows in 2008 where he enjoyed Wii bowling, playing pinochle and shooting pool with other residents. He was a lifelong fan of the St Louis Cardinals and the Lakers. He entered Crossroads Care Center in July 2018, where he passed away.
He is survived by one son, Mark (Jewel) of Round Lake; three daughters, Sherdyth (James) Hintgen, of Worthington, Diane (Dennis) Frodermann of Jackson, and Marcia (Mark) Shepherd of Worthington; grandchildren and great grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Edith, and his two sisters and brothers-in-law, Wilma (Domenic) Belcastro and Vera (Andrew) Allen.
Visitation will be held from 1:00-2:00 p.m., on Friday, March 29, 2019 at Benson Funeral Home, with a memorial service to follow. Private burial of cremains will take place at a later date.
Benson Funeral Home in Worthington is in charge of the arrangements.
