POULSBO — Sporting T-shirts that read “Can I lend you a hand ...?” the Poulsbo Lions gathered in front of North Kitsap Fishline to dedicate a bench to the late Garvin Tootle.

The red shirts were also in remembrance of Tootle, who was known for his caring, helpful nature.

Tootle was the operations manager for Fishline. He died June 26.

Fishline volunteer trainer described the retired Marine and consummate volunteer as “an amazing human being,” in an interview with the Herald.
