Naturalist Bruce Garrett, May He Rest In Peace   8 comments

Gneiss WalkBruce Garrett with His Talking Stick, Standing On A Gneiss Rock — Image by kenne

Most of this decade SCVN member Bruce Garrett led a geology walk, called “Gneiss Walk” in the Sabino Canyon Recreational Area. It has been a very popular walk, not only because he was very knowledgeable but because he was very entertaining. He loved talking to people.

Bruce will be dearly missed by all who had an opportunity to walk with him in Sabino Canyon and learn about the geology of the Santa Catalina Mountains.

  3. What was there not to love about Bruce?


  4. An inside joke: I often told Bruce that we loved getting “stoned” by/with him. He is now with the ages in the Santa Catalinas. I will miss you my friend .

  5. Thank you for this tribute to Bruce, Kenne. I will never forget the first one of his walks that I attended and still chuckle at the chocolate scat. The photo with Bryna is a treasure.

  6. Kenne, What a nice tribute to a very special guy. I first started really liking Bruce when he was taking such great care of Bryna when she was so ill.
