Andrew J. Garbarini
Mr. Andrew J. Garbarini of East Hampton entered peacefully into eternal rest, surrounded by loved ones at his vacation home in Charleston, S.C. on August 12, after a lengthy battle with lung cancer. He was 68 years old.
Mr. Garbarini was born on May 23, 1942 in Manhattan and was raised on the lower East Side. He then moved to the West Village where he earned a Masters of Psychology from City College of New York. He later earned a Masters of Social Work from Stony Brook University before relocating to The Hamptons. He began his career as a professor of psychology at Mount St. Mary’s College in New Rochelle. He later taught at Southampton College where he developed the first curriculum for the education of students about domestic violence.
Mr. Garbarini was employed in the 1990’s at the Victims Information Bureau in Hauppauge. He was well-loved as a teacher and continued in the field of domestic violence education as a counselor at The Retreat in East Hampton for the past 10 years. He is fondly remembered at local elementary schools as “Mr. Andrew,” and for bringing puppets into the classrooms as his teaching method. He was dedicated to the education of all age groups so they could recognize and stop abuse.
Many Hamptons locals also knew Mr. Garbarini as the Sunday night DJ for the Southampton college radio station’s jazz show. His life-long love of music ranged from a passion for 1950’s Rock & Roll to jazz standards. He was a popular dance partner with his great “lindy style” and could often be seen on the dance floor.
“Charming, debonair and always a gentleman is how everyone described Andrew,” said the family. “His spirit and strength remained until he departed and his presence will continue to resonate with the many friends and family members whom he left behind much too early. Andrew’s handsome face will be missed, but his memory will never fade from his family.”
Surviving are his devoted wife, Susan, beloved step-daughters, Caitlin, Sarah, Carrie, Michele and Heather and his seven precious grandchildren.
Friends and family are invited to pay their respects at the family’s East Hampton home on Saturday, August 21 from 1 to 4 p.m. and Sunday, August 22 from 1 to 4 p.m. The family requests that those who are attending to please bring a picture of themselves with Mr. Garbarini. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to The Retreat, 13 Goodfriend Drive, Easthampton, New York, 11937.
