Garrity, Harold Ryan "Bud" - Beaufort  
Harold Ryan "Bud" Garrity Harold Ryan "Bud" Garrity- entrepreneur, broadcaster, musician, boater extraordinaire, loving father, grandfather, husband, and friend - died Saturday, October 25, 2014, at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston following a brief illness. He was 68. Bud Garrity was a businessman in Ithaca, NY, where he founded a successful advertising agency in 1978. He and his wife, Janet, retired to Beaufort, SC, in 2008. He is survived by his wife, Janet Harter Garrity; his son, Matthew, and his wife, Sarah (Lewis) and their daughter, Madolyn, of Brooklyn, NY; and his first wife, Julie (Schor) Garrity of New York City, and extended family and hundreds of friends. A native of Granville, NY, Bud was pre-deceased by his parents, Harold and Verna, and his brother, Robert. In high school and college, he was a guitarist and singer in popular bands. Bud earned a bachelor's degree in communications from Ithaca College in 1968, and served his alma mater on the Alumni Association's Board of Directors. From 1989 to 2007, he was a member of the Ithaca College Board of Trustees, where he served on every committee of the board during his 18-year tenure. Also, he chaired the committee to celebrate the college's centennial in 1982. In addition to many years of service to his alma mater, Bud served on the board of the Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce in Ithaca. Bud began his broadcasting career at WSET in Glens Falls, NY, while still in high school. He later worked at radio stations in Ithaca - WTKO and WHCU, where he was news director. After serving as Director of the Annual Fund at Ithaca College, he founded Garrity Communications, which had clients across the Northeast, including Tompkins Trust Company, Borg-Warner Automotive, Crowley Foods, Heluva Good Cheese, New York State Electric & Gas Corp., and Chemung Canal Trust Company, as well as several other community banks and food companies. Bud's stentorian voice was familiar to listeners throughout New York State. Boating was a passion for Bud, especially on Ithaca's Cayuga Lake. The ability to be on the water almost year round prompted Bud and Janet to retire to Beaufort, SC, where he was a member of the Beaufort Sail and Power Squadron. But Bud's most loved place remained his home waters of Cayuga Lake. A memorial service will be held at the River Club at Coosaw Point in Beaufort on Saturday, November 15, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. A brief service will be followed by a reception. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Bud Garrity to FRIENDS of Caroline Hospice, 1110 13th St, Port Royal, SC 29935. A memorial service will be held in Ithaca at a later date.
