Dane Garman — a long-time Ohio AgriBusiness Association (OABA) member and co-founder of Garman Feed & Supply — passed away this month.
Garman, who was 85, worked for the Central Ohio Breeder’s Association (COBA), where he received a COBA technician award for breeding 10,000 cows. He and his family then moved to Napoleon, where he was the general manager of Farmers Friend Mineral Company. In 1976, Garman, along with his brother Walt Garman, purchased Garman Feed & Supply in Lyndon, which is presently owned and operated by his son Greg. In 2005, Garman opened Garman Feed & Supply in Bainbridge. Garman served in World War II, he was a member of the South Salem Methodist Church, where he sang in the choir, served as chairman of the church board and was a member of the pastor-parish committee. He loved farming, animals, his business and people.
