Bennie Joe Garrett was born March 2, 1945, the son of Izeal Sr. “Billie” and Aroh (Smith) Garrett. He met and married Shirley (Bryant) Geter, three children were born to this union: Willie, Kimberly and Tenisa. Bennie later married Sharron (Lewis) Garrett in 2007.
Just like his father, Bennie was a hard worker and a dedicated family man. Employed 33 years with Exxon Mobil Pipeline Company from 1972 and culminated in retirement December 31, 2005.
Bennie ENJOYED helping others and held great compassion for his grand and great grandchildren. Every chance he could, he would spend time with them whether in person or on the phone and we will always remember that of our father. Bennie’s favorite pastime was farming, fishing and thanks to his granddaughter Riyah (Tenisa/Kevin), she taught him Face Book, Tic Tok and how to upload his favorite songs to his TimeLine (Story) after retirement. Despite his three and a half year battle with his illness, he stayed optimistic and was a FIGHTER till The Angels of Thy Loving-Kindness ascended him to the Spiritual World.
He is preceded in death by his loving parents, his sisters Patricia Garrett of Henderson and Fannie Norris of Tatum.
He leaves to cherish his memories his children: Willie (Carolyn), Kimberly (Garlond) and Tenisa (Kevin); grandchildren; two sisters: Carolyn (Jimmy) Harper of Henderson and Diane (Bobby) Manns of Longview and one brother: Izeal (Leanor) Garrett Jr. He also leaves to cherish a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
