Celebration of Life
Richland, WA US 99352
Garitt Garabed Davidian, devoted husband, dedicated father, and loving son has been called home to be with the lord and several family members; all awaiting his return with outstretched arms.
Garitt was born in Visalia California Sept 10 1972 to Deann Ferris and Charlie Davidian. A loving child growing up in the Armenian community of Yettem Ca, Garitt was involved in the Armenian church starting as an altar boy where he also celebrated almost all of his life milestones from his high school graduation to his marriage.
Garitt grew up in the Cutler, Exeter, and Visalia areas and attended schools where he excelled in all his studies, graduating from Golden West High School in 1992. Garitt attended St. Mary’s Armenian Apostolic Church in Yettem CA., where he was a member of the youth organization ACYO. He enjoyed fishing and playing football at Golden West and College of the Sequoias.
Some of Garitt’s many accomplishments in life include winning a National Football Championship, his unwavering devotion to the Chicago Bears (no matter their record) but his greatest accomplishment was his marriage to Shannah Davidian and the 5 children they raised together.
Garitt was a manager for Harbor Freight Tools and would travel the West Coast setting up and starting new stores. He had incredible talent to start with an empty building and would leave them as fully functional profitable stores. It was while opening a new Harbor Freight in Richland that Garitt met the love of his life Shannah. Shannah and Garitt settled in Washington making it their home.
An avid fisherman all of his life, Garitt loved the outdoors and was a collector of many things including video games and comic books.
Garitt is survived by his wife Shannah, children Sadie, Stephen, Sawyer, Samuel, and Sydney, his parents Charlie and Christine Davidian, Deann and Kelvin Ferris, and his siblings Nathan, Matthew, and Melynda.
A Celebration of Garitt’s Life will be held at 3:00 pm., in Richland WA., on October 16th, 2019 at Einan’s at Sunset Funeral Home, 915 Bypass Highway, Richland WA. 99352 Pl.
Saddened to hear about the passing of Garitt. Garitt hired me at Harbor Freight Tools which is also where I met Shannah, The three of us and a few others would hang out from time to time even after they both left the company making many memories. My thought and prayers are with Shannah and the kids. May Garitt Rest In Peace.
May you all find comfort in your loving memories. We love you and will be here for you.
Love and hugs, Paul and Jan Dowdy
