Sussex County’s own Grizzly Adams, Pete E. Truitt Jr. passed away peacefully Tuesday, January 5th surrounded by family after a long battle with cancer. Coming from a colorful background and eventful youth Pete found happiness in life’s simple pleasures like wood working, music, gardening, hunting or simply watching the local wildlife. Anyone lucky enough to spend time with him would have learned the benefit of silence, hard work and perseverance even when things seemed impossible. Pete was a stubborn and proud man but more importantly he was loving whether he expressed it openly or not.  Survived by four children Shannon Trice, Charity (Fuzzy) Truitt, Paden Truitt and Wyatt Truitt and several grandchildren. The family is welcoming Pete’s friends and family to The Counting House, 18 The Circle, Georgetown, DE, on Saturday, January 23rd from 12pm to 3pm to celebrate his life with stories and snacks.
