John H. Garling, age 88, passed away on March 8, 2019. He was born on October 9, 1930 to the late Mary and John Garling Sr. in Toledo, Ohio.
John was an Army Veteran and served in the Korean War. He retired from the Toledo Fire Department in 1972 after 15 years. John owned his own company, “Garling Builders” and built many beautiful homes in the Toledo Area. He was an avid golfer and member at Brandywine Country Club and loved to play cards at the Clubhouse.
