The Garrity brothers were competitive as kids and adults..... whether playing golf or cards. The important thing is.. they always had good times in each other’s company. These are memories of Dick they will cherish.

The Garrity Boys have lost a Brother, a friend and a good pal.
The affable Dick has left us. He was humorous, kindly and it was a
joy to be in his company. He will be greatly missed but the Garrity boys have many great stories and fond memories.

Richard was a pleasure to work with at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library. He always had a smile and a laugh. I am sad to hear that he has moved on. We had some good laughs.

All my best to the family. He will be missed.
