Robert Wayne Garrett of Scituate died peacefully after a brief illness on a beautiful Fall morning, November 18th. Robert was born and raised in Frederick, Maryland and spent much of his youth on his grandparents’ dairy farm. He graduated valedictorian of Frederick High School in 1965, Phi Beta Kappa and Rufus Choate Scholar from Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH with a degree in advanced mathematics and economics in 1969 and Harvard Law School in 1972. He met his beloved wife, Katherine Recke, of Cohasset and settled in Scituate where they made their home for 46 wonderful years. Robert practiced labor law for over four decades serving communities across Massachusetts and successfully tried cases at every level including the U.S. Supreme Court. Robert was a passionate outdoorsman, fly fisherman and fly tyer, gardener, antique collector and avid historian. However above all else, he loved his wife Kathy, their three children Catherine, Robert and John, their daughter-in-laws Christine and Mary Garrett, son-in-law Christopher Johnson and 7 grandchildren, Johnny, William, Ruby, Maggie, Christopher, Emma and Samuel Robert. A funeral service will be held at St. Mary of the Nativity Church in Scituate on Wednesday November 24th at 10:00am.
