Garth was born in Brigham City, Utah. He served in the Arizona Holbrook Navajo speaking mission.

Upon returning from his mission, he attended Brigham Young University where an inspired bishop called him to team teach the marriage preparation class in his singles ward with a beautiful young woman named Diane Pruyne. The rest, as they say, is history.

Garth and Diane have two daughters. Garth is currently serving as the second counselor in the bishopric of the Vista 8th Ward, Vista California Stake. He works as a Principle Designer for Callaway Golf. Diane is an elementary teacher in the Vista Unified School District.
