Garrett D. Spier\nBig Flats, NY \nPassed away on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at the age of 43 after sudden heart failure. He was born on December 25, 1977 in Elmira, NY, to Gerald and Judith Lott Spier. Garrett was a devoted father, a loving son, a crazy older brother, a caring uncle, a funny cousin, a good friend and a dedicated employee. He filled a room with his laughter, jokes and endless stories. His dance moves were notorious. He is survived by his three loving children, Sophia, Natalie and Rocco Spier; their mother, Kimberly "Kimmy" Colavita; brother, Geoffrey (Charisse) Spier; and their children, Codey, Davin, Mallory, and Brayden; his parents, Gerald and Judith Spier; and several aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family members and a large network of work colleagues and friends. He graduated in 1996 from Horseheads High School with varsity letters in four sports, excelling in lacrosse. He graduated from RIT with a degree in Digital Imaging. He was the 4th generation to be employed by Corning Inc, and worked for Corning Pharmaceutical Technologies in Big Flats, where he supported the measurement systems for production of vials for the COVID vaccine. He was proud of the opportunity to contribute to the future well-being of people. Garrett enjoyed adult sports leagues but had taken a break from them to devote himself to his children. He was an avid hunter and fisherman, a Life Boy Scout and a diehard Buffalo Bills fan. He always rooted for the underdog. Garrett's recent passion was playing internet games with his children and Call of Duty with his many new virtual friends. Garrett held many interesting work positions prior to Corning, including internships with The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, where he discovered his passion for digital imaging and printing. He enjoyed his time as an event director for Monster Trucks at Live Nation and traveled the world for them and Corning Inc. The family welcomes your condolences and prayers at this time, but services will be held privately at a later date. For his final act of caring, Garrett gave the gift of life through organ donation, allowing him to live on not just in the hearts and minds of his loved ones, but live on through recipients and research.
