Death Announcement: Mr. John Garlow

“It is with a very heavy heart that we announce the passing of a legend.” John M. Garlow, CEO, and founder of Ford Office Technologies passed away early this morning. The entire Ford Office Technologies’ family mourns his loss. On behalf of the management team and employees, we extend our deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and colleagues.

John Garlow

Garlow was a Navy veteran and was a Weapons System Fire Control Technician.

He earned the rank of third class petty officer and was honorably discharged after four years of service. He also attended Penn State University Fayette Campus.

John founded Ford Office Technologies in 1991. He prided himself on the growth and success of his business over the past 27 years.

Mr. Garlow was a gregarious, kind, loving and genuine businessman. John was honored numerous times including the Silver Beaver Award, Boy Scouts of America, Citizen of the Year 2012, Fayette County Chamber and Finalist 2012 Governor’s Impact Award. John has been a major supporter of Penn State Fayette Campus, The Uniontown YMCA, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Boy Scouts of America, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Family Links, Lifesteps, Jumonville, The Challenge Program and The American Heart Association. He was a member of the Fayette Chamber of Commerce and served on numerous boards including Uniontown YMCA, Twin Trees Inc., The Challenge Program and Westmoreland-Fayette Council Boy Scouts.

He was a dedicated supporter of St John the Evangelist R.C. Church and School for many years.

Known by all for his generosity, big heart and larger than life laugh, “Big John” will be sadly missed.

“I pretty much try to give back every day”. “If I can help somebody, I do it.”Garlow said.

He has worked hard to instill his giving attitude in his children.

May his legacy be carried on by those he touched,
