Steven John Garmrath

August 3, 1962 — September 24, 2022

Coach Steve Garmrath, 60, of Paragould, passed from this life on Saturday, September 24, 2022. He was born on August 3, 1962, to the late Wayne and Geraldine Garmrath. He graduated Paragould High School in 1980, earned his bachelor's degree while playing football at the University of Central Arkansas, and then obtained his education degree from Arkansas State University. Steve became a teacher and coach, and he made a positive influence on numerous students and athletes during his coaching career. He had a passion for weather. He loved to go rock hunting and duck hunting. He was also a sports enthusiast. Although he loved these hobbies, his greatest love was for his family and his Savior.
