Obituary for Sammy Harriat

Sammy Harriat was born on August 30, 1947 in Charleston, South Carolina to the late Wiley and Queen Hester Harriott. At an early age, the family moved to Linden, New Jersey where Sammy attended the Linden Public School system and graduated from Linden High School.

Because of his love and fascination for aerospace engineering and flying, he pursued a higher learning in aeronautics at The Polytechnic Institute at Brooklyn, now known as New York University Tandon School of Engineering. In 1969, Sammy graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering. Three years later, he graduated with his Master’s degree in Industrial Management in 1972.

Sammy met and married Marsha Chapman. The couple started their family in Westfield, New Jersey and they were blessed with three wonderful sons. The two children were born in New Jersey and one in Colorado. The Harriat family moved to different states which included: Wichita, Kansas, Denver, Colorado, and finally Bloomfield, Connecticut.

During those years, Sammy worked at different aerospace and engineering companies. He held positions at Fairchild, Martin Marietta (Lockheed Martin), Kaman, EDO Corporation, Barnes Group, and finally retiring from Pratt and Whitney in 2013.

Beside his love for space and technology, Sammy grew up loving different sports teams. These sport teams include New York Knicks, Mets, and Jets.

On Tuesday, October 1, 2019, he departed this earthly life in Windsor, Connecticut.

Sammy was predeceased by his wife, Marsha Helena Kathleen Harriat in 2012.

He leaves to cherish fond memories, his beloved children: Samuel Harriat, Paul Harriat (Regina) (Grandfather of Christina), and Brian Harriat; brothers: Wiley Harriat, Arthur Lee Harriat (Keisha, Kim, Deon, Carla, Arthur), and George Harriat (deceased); sisters: Queen Gregory (Raziya, Yaminah, Jabril), Julie Harriat (Leontty), and Patricia Cleveland (deceased) (Tammy, Lysa, Kirby); and a host of great-grandchildren, cousins, dear relatives and friends.
