Bob G. Garrett, age 76 of Goodlettsville, son of Amos Taylor Garrett and Annie Dora Stinson Garrett, passed away on May 12, 2016. Bob was born February 17, 1940, in the Shackle Island area of Sumner County. He attended Isaac Litton High School and retired from DuPont after 35 years of service. During his retirement years, Bob also worked for the City of Goodlettsville doing something he loved – mowing grass at Moss-Wright Park. Bob was a member of Shackle Island Church of Christ for over 45 years.

Bob had a passion for playing music, fishing, gardening, and working with his hands. Whether working indoors on antique pieces or working outdoors on keeping his yard like a park -- including building a log cabin – Barbara’s list of projects always kept Bob busy.

Married for nearly 54 years, Bob is survived by his wife Barbara (Spivey) Garrett of Goodlettsville, daughter Tina (Garrett) Meeks and son-in-law Randy of Goodlettsville, son Jason T. Garrett and partner Jason Johnson of Nashville, adored grandchildren Briley and Brett Meeks of Goodlettsville, brother Joseph (Betty Jo) Garrett of Clarksville, brother Samuel (Sara) Garrett of Chattanooga,  brother-in-law Ed (Cindy) Spivey of Goodlettsville, sister-in-law Betty (Lloyd, deceased) Link of White Bluff, sister-in-law Susan Spivey of Goodlettsville, and many nieces and nephews.

Creating a comforting house and home was very important to Bob; it is all the more special, then, that the day Bob passed – May 12, 2016 – was the very day he had moved his family into their home of many years on May 12, 1972.

Visitation will be held on Sunday, May 15th, from 3 to 8 P.M. at Cole & Garrett Funeral Home in Goodlettsville. A Celebration of Life will be led by Bro. Ray Frizzell on Monday, May 16th at 10:00 A.M. at Cole & Garrett Funeral Home in Goodlettsville. Interment will follow in Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens. Grandchildren, nephews, and friends will be pallbearers.

Arrangements Entrusted To: Cole & Garrett Funeral Home, 127 N. Main St., Goodlettsville, (615)859-5231

    Jason–I’m so sorry to hear of your family’s loss. I have many fond memories of fun times at your home, and I know that your parents were a big part of making of your school & band friends welcome there, especially for the ’87 prom.

    We’ll see you Sunday for visitation, but know that Jennifer and I are thinking of your family during this sad time.

    Barbara, we will miss Bob’s home made peach ice cream and the gatherings on the 4th of July among many other great times.

    Our hearts were so sad when the call came Friday afternoon of Bob’s passing. He was always a joy to our Stinson Family reunions, playing music and playing all the old Fashioned gospel songs. One could not want a more kind, loving and talented cousin than Bob. We all will miss you so much! Thanks for the many Facebook notes, especially recipes you shared. The one for chocolate fudge was a favorite. You knew all of us Stinsons have a THING for chocolate. I use it often and think of you. Your Mom and my Dad were brother and sister. Don’t you know they have a lot to catch up on there in heaven! Love and many prayers to you, Barbara and all your family.
