Bruce W. Herrick, 64

B ruce W. Herrick, 64, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2010.

Born June 1, 1946, in Granville, Bruce was the son of the late Guy and Lottie (Greene) Herrick.  After graduating in 1964 from Granville Central School, he spent more than 30 years on Herrick Brook Road tending the family farm in Pawlet, Vt. Following his father’s advice, he then took up his heartfelt trade of carpentry for the remainder of his life.

Besides his parents, Bruce is predeceased by his infant son Bryan Herrick, brother Guy (Bill) Herrick, mother-in-law Miriam (Mim) Barnes, and brother-in-law Roger Evans.

Bruce is survived by his loving wife, Sherry (Barnes) Herrick; his four-legged shadow, Kody; daughters Dr. Johnna (Loren) Herrick-Phelps and Mindy Lyons; one son, Courtney Herrick; granddaughter Grace Phelps; two grandsons, Teddy and Billy Lyons; sisters Charlotte (Bill) Jordon and Shirley Evans; sisters-in-law Susan (Daryl) Dodge, Blanche (Herrick) Ross; and in-laws Ed and Marion Barnes. There are many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends as well.

Bruce loved adventuring with his wife, spending time with his daughter and grandsons, his house along with its beautiful view, mowing the lawn, kayaking and seeking country roads on his motorcycle. He also enjoyed reading, falling asleep watching TV and spending time with family and friends. Bruce was a dedicated worker. Every job he did received his touch of perfection. Bruce served as a member of the Granville Rescue Squad and the Pawlet Fire Department. He will be greatly missed.

Calling hours were held Friday, Oct. 8, at the Robert M. King Funeral Home on Church Street in Granville.

A funeral service to celebrate his life was conducted Saturday, Oct. 9, at the Pawlet Community Church followed by burial at the Mettawee Cemetery in Pawlet.

A reception was held on the lower level of the Pawlet Community Church.

Expressions of sympathy may take the form of direct donations to the Granville Rescue Squad.
