Springfi eld and Nixa business owner

Garnett H. Carnahan passed away Sat- urday, February 22, at the age of 84. In addition to his family, Garnett took pride in his work as a manufacturer, inventor and real estate developer.

Midwest, including the boating industry.

The connection with the marine industry led Garnett to create a subsidiary, Nixa- based Springfi eld Marine, which makes components for boat manufacturers. In 1985, Garnett started importing com- ponents from Taiwan, and in 1990, he started Jiangsu Carnahan Co. and sub- sidiary Scheco Mechanical & Electrical
