Bruce Garritt

Bruce Garritt, aged 60, passed away at Westchester Medical Center on Monday, November 15, 2021. He was born June 16, 1961, to Bruce and Betty Garritt, the oldest of three boys.

At only 5 years old, Bruce began a friendship with Karen Foster, later attending Ellenville High School together in Ulster County where Bruce played baseball, winning sections. Two decades after becoming friends at age 5, they married and raised two sons, Jason and Justin, in Liberty, NY.

Bruce attended Sullivan County Community College and then served for 33 years as Food Administrator of Sullivan Correctional Facility before retiring. In retirement, Bruce enjoyed traveling with his family and friends, mowing lawns, hunting, and boating, especially during the annual family trip to the 1000 Islands. In addition, he was a member of the Covered Bridge Hunting Camp.

Bruce will be remembered as the rock of his family, completely selfless in the support of those he loved. He is survived by his wife, Karen; sons, Jason and Justin; father, Bruce; and brothers, David and Carl. The family will celebrate his life at the Claryville Firehouse from 2 – 5 PM on Saturday, November 20th. We will host a special tribute at 3:30 PM. Anyone willing to share a memory of Bruce will be encouraged to share.

Your remembrance is gift enough. No donations or flowers. Give your loved ones an extra hug. Life is too short.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Harris Funeral Home West St. at Buckley, Liberty, NY 845-292-0001 or 845-439-5200
