On Sunday, March 15, 2015, the Ohio Pi chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon held a celebration of life for our late brother, Jeff Garber, who passed away on February 11, 2015. Jeff served two tours in Iraq in the United States Navy; after returning, he enrolled at Wright State University majoring in nursing where he was in his sophomore year. Outside of school and SigEp, Jeff was passionate about motorcycles, playing guitar, and many other things.
First, we would like to thank everyone in attendance for all of the support. At the celebration, the family was presented with a set of letters from the chapter, a copy of our Lifetime Responsibility of Brotherhood signed by the members of our chapter, and Jeff’s shingle and certificate of membership. Ryan Fahncke, Ohio Pi’s AVC President, thanked Brother Garber’s family for his service to our country and presented them with the book Our journey of brotherhood: Sigma Phi Epsilon’s first hundred years on behalf of the Chapter Alumni. However, the most valuable thing presented to the family was not a material possession—it was the countless memories of Brother Garber shared by the members of our chapter.
RIP Brother Garber
