Edward Lee

'Bud' Garner

1927 - 2016

Pompano Beach Historian,

Florida Sentry Columnist

and Award Winning Author

Edward Lee (Bud) Garner was born Jan. 16, 1927 in Alabama. He was the 2nd of 4 children born to J.E. and Dausia Garner.

In order for his father to take a job with the Florida East Coast Railroad, they moved to Pompano when Bud was 9 months old. He lived in Pompano his whole life, except for the time he spent in the US Navy.

He and his wife Doris are Pioneers of Broward County and Bud is the Historian of the City of Pompano Beach. He has been active in the Historical Society of Pompano Beach and The Hillsboro Lighthouse Preservation Society.

In his retirement, he became a prolific writer, telling stories of growing up in Pompano and documenting the history of the area in his own words and through his own eyes. Those stories have been published in several books over the years.

Bud joined the US Navy at the age of 16 in 1943. He served both in the Atlantic and the Pacific, spending time on the USS Niblack. He was very proud to have served his country in WWII. He returned home in 1945 where he went back to Pompano High School and graduated in 1948. (Go Beanpickers!)

He married his high school sweetheart, Doris Evelyn Corbett on May 22, 1949. They would have celebrated their 67th Wedding Anniversary in a few weeks. Bud is survived by his wife, Doris, his brother Jim Garner and his two sisters Rose Chambers and Alice Mainguy.

He and Doris have 4 children, 8 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.

Children: Kathy Barker (Charles) , Karen Kutschinski (Deceased),Russ Garner (Dorienne), Ken Garner (Lynn);Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren: Jeffrey Barker (Tawnda): Parents of Katelyn, Brynn, Cole, Liam, Matthew Barker (Jessica): Parents of Sean, Charles, Joshua, Grace, Rebekah, Kallie Gonzalez (Eddie): Parents of Zoey, Aegean Garner, Alex Garner, Heaven-Leigh Paige Garner: Mother of Leilani Tinerello, Nathan Lindsay, and Ryan Garner.

Beautiful Family. Amazing legacy. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandpa and great grandpa. He will be sorely missed by all of his family. In the words of one of his grandchildren he was a great role model, we have all been blessed. Bud was an active member of his church, First Baptist Church of Pompano Beach.

He and Doris were married in that church. They became founding members of the church plant, North Pompano Baptist Church, where he served as a deacon for many years. They later returned to First Baptist where they currently worship.

Bud passed away suddenly on April 21, 2016 after a brief illness. Absent with the body, present with the Lord. There will be a time of visitation with the family on Tuesday, April 26 from 1-3 pm, immediately followed by a Memorial Service at 3:00, both to be held at First Baptist Church of Pompano Beach.

In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to : The Ministries of First Baptist Church of Pompano Beach or The Hillsboro Lighthouse Preservation Society.

On behalf of everyone at the Florida Sentry, we will miss Bud's friendship, warmth and love of life. Bud was a true professional, devoted and loyal friend and a great patriot.

Rest in Peace Dear friend, you will be sorely missed.

Armed robber foiled

An armed robber uses a shock-and-awe technique that leaves him running from the scene with no profit to speak of.
The afternoon of April 14, an unidentified male entered the Mobil Gas Station convenience store at 901 W. Oakland Park Blvd. The man approached the counter and took out a gun. He pointed it at the victim and demanded the money from the register.
Despite the shock, the clerk was able to escape into a back room. The robber reached across the counter and tried to open the register. Once he realized he could not get to the cash he quickly fled the store.
The subject is described as a black male in his late 20s, approximately 5’11” tall with a thin build. He wore a dark-colored shirt, a dark-colored stocking on his head, dark sunglasses and gloves. The suspect drove a light-colored Toyota, which he had parked near the rear of the business.
Anyone with information is asked to call Robbery Detective Mohammad Razi at 954-321-4547. Reports can also be made anonymously to Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $3,000 for the tip that leads to an arrest.

Deputy tracks down burglars

While conducting routine patrol at approximately 4 a.m. the morning of April 17, Deputy Robert Rausch came across a white, 4-door Mercedes driving westbound on the 2400 Block of West Commercial Boulevard. He recognized the vehicle from a BSO flyer suspected in multiple Jimmy John’s burglaries throughout Palm Beach and Broward County.
The car had an unassigned tag and the deputy decided to perform a traffic stop. Deputy Rausch made contact with the driver, Devon Golding, 18, and a juvenile passenger.
The deputy arrested Golding for having an unassigned tag, knowingly driving with a suspended license and failure to register a motor vehicle. The deputy discovered $320.50 dollars in small bills and wrapped coins, gloves, Jimmy John’s hats and a flashlight in the subject’s car.
Both suspects confessed to 10 separate Jimmy John’s burglaries. They now face three burglary charges and one petit theft charge for crimes committed in Tamarac.
Detectives from Coral Springs, Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale police departments have added multiple charges for similar crimes committed within their jurisdictions.

Distraction thief busted

One half of a distraction-theft team was arrested Monday and will be extradited from Alachua County to Broward County. Albert Robinson, 55, will face charges of grand theft and identity theft.
In late February, Robinson and his unidentified partner used a distraction technique to steal from an elderly woman in Cooper City. Robinson, who can be seen on surveillance video, lifted a wallet from the purse of the woman as his partner distracted the grocery store shopper.
Around 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 28, the suspects entered the Publix Super Market at 10018 Griffin Road in Cooper City and pretended to shop for gift cards. The first part of the video shows the pair as they zero in on a victim: a 92-year-old woman. One suspect approached the customer and asked her a question. That’s when Robinson approached the woman’s cart, unzipped her purse and swiped her wallet. The suspects’ distraction technique deprived the victim of $40, credit cards and her driver’s license.
The second part of the video picks up the sneaky duo on the same day at a Best Buy in Pembroke Pines (11450 Pines Blvd.). They used the victim’s credit card to purchase an Xbox One and two Dell Inspiron computers for a total of roughly $1,500.
The unidentified man had on a striped short-sleeve shirt, jeans and glasses. At the Publix, the duo was seen leaving in an unidentified sedan that has a sunroof.
Anyone with information is asked to call BSO Cooper City Detective Glen Gainey at 954-435-2200. Reports can also be made anonymously to Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $3,000 for the tip that leads to an arrest.

Crews hunt boater who dove to free anchor

A search is continuing for a man who never resurfaced after diving into Tampa Bay to free an anchor that had become stuck.
Hillsborough County Sheriff's spokesman Larry McKinnon said divers and other crews resumed the search for the man Wednesday morning.
McKinnon says the man and a woman were on the boat that launched just before noon Tuesday from a MacDill Air Force Base boat ramp. They were about two miles west of Little Harbor in Ruskin when the anchor got stuck.

Zookeeper slain by tiger died of neck injury

A medical examiner says a South Florida zookeeper died from a neck injury after being attacked by a Malayan tiger.
Palm Beach County Medical Examiner Michael Bell told local media outlets today about 37-year-old Stacey Konwiser’s fatal neck injury but wouldn’t say whether the veteran Palm Beach Zoo worker was bitten or clawed. An autopsy report hasn’t been made public.
Officials say Konwiser was killed Friday when a 13-year-old male tiger attacked her in an enclosure known as the night house, where tigers sleep and are fed. The tiger was tranquilized and has since recovered. The zoo was closed over the weekend and reopened Monday.
Authorities from several local, state and federal agencies continue investigating what led to Friday’s deadly attack.

2 African elephants retiring to Zoo Miami

Two African elephants are retiring to sunny South Florida. Lis and Cita are expected to arrive at Zoo Miami on Tuesday.
Lisa and Cita — ages 42 and 47 — will join two other elderly female elephants at the zoo. The move follows an Association of Zoos and Aquariums recommendation that zoos keep elephants in herds of three or more to support their psychological health.
Spokesman Ron Magill says Zoo Miami is the only zoo in the continental United States that is located in a subtropical climate where the mammals can remain outdoors year-round.
The two elephants are coming to Miami from the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk.
The new elephants will be presented to the public May 20 after a quarantine period.

Claims of drinking, calling police pigs get judge suspended

Allegations of drunkenness and calling police officers "pigs" has led to the suspension of a Miami-Dade County judge by the Florida Supreme Court.
The court's order Tuesday takes effect immediately for Judge Jacqueline Schwartz. She faces a range of possible penalties, including removal from the bench.
A Judicial Qualifications Commission investigation found that Schwartz appeared to be impaired on March 18 at a Coconut Grove restaurant, where witnesses said she berated waiters and called police "pigs." The probe also found on March 28 Schwartz was drunk on the bench to the point where her bailiff had to drive her home.
Schwartz attributed her behavior to a new prescription medication, not alcohol.
Schwartz was previously suspended and fined $10,000 for swearing at store clerk over one of her campaign signs.

Multiple media outlets report the incident happened early Monday.
Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Gina Carter says the unidentified victim was walking three dogs when one of the dogs, a Pomeranian, got off the leash and ran into the road.
Carter says the woman stepped into the road to retrieve the dog and was hit by a vehicle.
The dog was pronounced at the scene.

Officer fired in prostitution sting

A South Florida police officer has been fired after authorities say he got caught up in an undercover prostitution sting.
Boynton Beach police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater said in a news release Tuesday that Vintyre Finney was fired last week. The eight-year veteran has been on paid administrative leave since October.
That's when authorities say Finney drove up to a woman he believed to be a prostitute and offered her $20 for oral sex. The woman was actually an undercover deputy with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.
Boynton Beach police terminated Finney for conduct unbecoming a police officer and conformance to law.
Finney's attorney John Howe says his client has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges stemming from the sting, and video released by police portrays Finney's interaction with the undercover deputy out of context.
