Gargon served the family for roughly 10 years. Erik's wife, Jennica, died of a spider bite some 5 years after hiring Gargon. Six years later, the entire family and its farmhands were massacred by a rogue band of men, seemingly for no reason. Gargon was not present during the slaughter, as he was running an errand nearby. That made him the sole surviving inhabitant of the farm, also saving him from the Spirit beast.
When he returns from his task, he finds the entire family slain. He buries their remains in a large cave north of the farm, where Jennica had been buried six years prior. He presumably died some time later, although it has been speculated that he is the Strange Old Man, found at the Barrows because he mentions Jennica if wearing her ring.
