Guy M. Pettit, Prominent Citizen Dies At Age 86

Ellicottville lost another of its former prominent business men, public officials and leading citizens when Guy M. Pettit, 86, passed away Sunday morning at his home (at) 16 Washington Street, following an illness of two weeks.

Mr. Pettit was one of Ellicottville's veteran business men having operated a hardware store in this villiage for fifty years until he retired in 1937 and sold his store to A.E. Fraser, present owner. He held many public offices in this village and township in his younger days. He also served as trustee on the Board of Education, Treasurer of Ellicottville Lodge No. 307 F&AM, for 45 years, as well as treasurer of the Sunset Hill Cemetery Association and other local enterprises during the years gone by.

Mr. Pettis was also a director of The Bank of Ellicottville for many years and had been a member of the local Masonic Lodge since 1895.

Born in Franklinville, June 10, 1863, his parents moved to Ellicottville when he was two years of age and he made this community his home since.

Surviving are his widow, Mrs. Emma Johnson Pettit, three sons, Merritt J. Pettit, 163 Southside Parkway, Buffalo; H.L. Pettit of Grantsville, MD; Neil A. Pettit, Ellicottville; two daughters, Mrs. Paul S. Craig, Machias, and Mrs. Clare F. Harris, Ellicottville; seven grandchildren, James, John, Richard Pettit, Grantsville MD; Mary, James and Billy Harris, and Bob Pettit, Ellicottville. He also leaves one sister, Mrs. C.M. Walrath, and one brother, Justin W. Pettit, both of Ellicottville.
