Tribute to Shorty GaroutteShorty Garoutte, long-time Poulsbo resident and volunteer at the Sons of Norway, passed away recently. Glenn Robbins pays tribute to this amazing man. “He cared about others and was always there to help.” While many may know that Shorty had a long and successful Navy career before becoming a solid citizen of the Poulsbo community, you may not know that he was once the senior enlisted service member in the Pacific Fleet, a position of high responsibility and visibility. Peace be with you, Shorty. You will be missed.
