Bobbie Eugene Garner
August 5, 1932 – April 3, 2019
Bobby “Bob” “Robert” “Bobert” Eugene Garner passed from his home into the waiting arms of Jesus on April 3, 2019 at the age of 86. He loved that no one could guess his age and was proud that he didn’t look his age.
He was born at home in Trenton, TN to parents (deceased) Carl Garner and Grace Beatrice (Holt) Garner. He was preceded in death by his siblings BettyJean Sturgeon, GuyMack Garner, Frankie Odell Kawell and Gary Clemoe Garner.
He leaves to cherish his memory by loving wife Laura Garner along with sister Phyllis Kimble, children Ron Garner (Kathleen), Roger Garner (Grace), David Garner, Stacy Welter (Tim) and Brett Garner (Melissa) and step children Tina Balin (Tim) and Billy Taylor (Kathy). He had a lot of grandchildren spread from coast to coast, Matt Garner, Whitney Garner, Caitlin Garner, Linda Jamison, Lisa Garner, Doug Welter, Danielle Maczka, Casandra Biggs, Jacob Garner, Jonah Garner, Abigail Garner, Bethany Garner and Benjamin Garner and several great grandchildren.
He was a professional bus driver and used to say, “I drove more miles backward than most drive forward.” He received many safety awards but was most proud of the Million-Mile Safety Award and the 30-year safe driver award.
He enjoyed friends of many years and from all over the country but the last few years he loved joining his friends during weekday mornings at the gym for coffee, conversation and walking.

I remember meeting Bob at the hospital office shortly after you started working there. You two were such a sweet couple and he was so kind. He smelled so good that I got my husband some of his after shave. Please know that Don and I carry you in our hearts and prayers. We are so very sorry for you and your family's loss. We ask God to comfort you all.
