Kevin Garrity, of Watertown, Connecticut, passed away suddenly on November 3 at the age of 41. Kevin attended The Frederick Gunn School in Washington, Connecticut, where he was a Prefect, honor roll student, and recipient of the Gunnery Cup upon graduation.  An avid athlete, Kevin was a member of the Varsity rowing, soccer, and basketball teams in high school.  In 1998, Kevin was selected for the U.S. Development rowing team and earned a spot on the national team in 1999, which led to training and international competition in Canada and Bulgaria.

 

Kevin attended Brown University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Economics and Modern American History.  He was a four-year student-athlete on the Brown crew team.

In 2014, Kevin and Kate accepted Faculty roles at the Williston Northampton School in Easthampton, Massachusetts and moved onto the school’s campus.  Kevin taught Physics and Chemistry at Williston; served as an Advisor and Dorm Parent; and coached rowing, basketball, soccer, and golf. 

 

A devoted husband, father, son, and brother, Kevin is survived by his wife, Kate, and two children, Cameron (8) and Maggie (2); by his parents, Thomas and Georgia Garrity; and by his siblings, Ryan Garrity, Meghan Garrity, Caitlin Dixon, and Erin Garrity.
