Robert T. Garrett, 91, of Waterville, NY and The Villages, FL, passed away Tuesday, November 7, 2017 in Florida.
Robert was born in Elmira, NY on September 4, 1926, a son of Frank and Harriett Garrett. He spent his early years in Saranac Lake, NY and was a 1944 graduate of UFA High School in Utica. In September 1944, he joined the U.S. Army during WWII and was stationed in Austria for two years. On January 22, 1949, he was united in marriage to Eunice "June" Helmes, a loving union of 57 years when she passed away in 2006.
Bob and June established Garrrett’s Supermarket in Waterville in 1949, which later became Food King, on the site where the present CVS is today.
