Allan Lathrop Garnham, born on September 8, 1965, in Santiago, Chile, died on February 12, 2019 in Germantown, Maryland.

The son of Jose Antonio Garnham and Katia Lathrop, Allan lived in Chile, Costa Rica, and Canada before moving to Montgomery County.  Living in different countries and constantly forging new relationships made Allan a true people person, always outgoing and eager to know and welcome those around him.

Allan graduated from St. Jane de Chantal School in Bethesda in 1980, Archbishop John Carroll High School in Washington, DC in 1984, and University of Maryland University College in 2013 with a Master's degree in technology management. Hospitality was his passion; he bartended, served, and managed at local favorites including Hamburger Hamlet, Clyde's, and Tadich Grill.    

Allan married Margaret Welsh on August 2, 1997 and was joyfully embraced by her extended Suffern, New York family.  

"Big Al" was larger than life and will be remembered for his boisterous laugh and love of people and entertaining. He was a beloved son, devoted husband, and cherished friend.
