Dr. Lee Garrod

It is with profound sadness that the family of Dr. Lee Garrod DVM, Diplomate ACVECC – Cardiothoracic Medicine, announce her passing on August 11, 2022 at the age of 58. Dr. Garrod graduated from the University of Guelph, Ontario in 1989 and completed her residency at Tufts University in Massachusetts in 1993 before becoming a board certified Emergency and Critical Care Specialist.

The incredible success of her many veterinary clinics and hospitals in New England over the past 29 years was due to her tenacity, vision, and love of all animals. She will be fondly remembered as a well respected and admired member of the veterinarian community.

Her passion was her horses. She was training in Collingwood, Ontario with hopes of becoming part of the Canadian Paralympic Dressage team competing in Paris in 2024.

She will be forever and lovingly remembered by her husband of 23 years, Lars Larsen, sons Elias, Nicklas, daughter Natashia (Christian), grandchildren Elin and Lea, parents Peter and Christine, recently deceased mother Barbara Reid, brother Mark, sister in-law Laurie, niece and nephew Larissa (Peter) and Christopher, great niece’s Skyla and Callie, in-laws Bent and Inge Larsen and Jan (Mette) Larsen, Victor and Emil, Uncle Paul and Aunt Bev, cousins Wendy and Linda, friends and colleagues.

A drop-in visitation and reception to honour the life of Dr. Lee Garrod will take place on Sunday, August 28, 2022 at Jones Funeral Home, 11582 Trafalgar Rd, Georgetown, Ontario, 2-5 pm.

Further details will be announced in the future with regard to a memorial service in her home state of New Hampshire.
