Randall Scott Harritt passed away on August 13, 2019 at his home in Novato, CA, of natural causes. Known as Randy to his family, (and Scott after he moved to CA), he was born January 14, 1955, to Orville and Betty Harritt. He was the fourth child among five siblings: Linda, Phil, Roger, and DiAnn. Raised on the family farm that his grandparents homesteaded, and educated at Notus Public Schools and Boise State University, he moved to California where he worked as a real estate appraiser. He eventually owned his own business, R. Scott Harritt Appraisals, in Novato, CA.
Randy was a gentle, unassuming person who loved Jesus and that love directed his life and actions. He was eager to assist others at a moment’s notice and anyone in need of help, whether physically, emotionally, or financially, could count on him. He wasn’t public about his good deeds or actions and in the past week, the outpouring of stories from friends and acquaintances has been overwhelming. He loved his family, his church family, friends, neighbors, and animals of all kinds, and especially his cat Ruckus. Randy’s life is a testament to how a life should be lived and he leaves a profound effect on the lives of people he touched.
His death was unexpected and we are grieving our loss but we know he is in heaven celebrating with our parents and niece, Micaela Bengoechea. He is survived by siblings DiAnn (Shane) Bengoechea, Roger Harritt, Phil (Jan) Harritt, Linda (Dennis) Batie, and nieces Amaya Bengoechea, Erin Batie, Jenna Lerma, Lindsay Blank, and Shantel Harritt. He is also survived by several great nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held in Novato, CA, at Bay Marin Community Church on Sept 8th at 2:00. Randy’s plan was to retire and return to Idaho, and it’s only fitting that he will be laid to rest in Caldwell ID. A Grave side service will be held on Tuesday, September 24 at 2:00 p.m. at Canyon Hill Cemetery in Caldwell
