William "Bill" Clarence Garrett
May 31, 1934 – October 5, 2021
Bill Garrett was born May 31, 1934 in Clarksville, TX to Coy and Agnes Garrett. He moved to Oklahoma City with his parents and siblings when he was a young boy. He joined the Air Force as a young man and proudly served his country all over the world. When his service was up, he worked as a civilian electrician at Tinker AFB for 34 years. He also worked at various motorcycle shops in south OKC. A much loved and lucrative hobby of his was buying and selling boats, as well as becoming a permanent fixture of Boat City Prop Shop.
Bill spent many summers with his family at Lake Texoma. He loved to boat and fish; and, although he complained about it, he could always be found on his riding lawn mower or tractor.
He was a wonderful man, a devoted husband and dad, a doting Papaw, a proud Air Force Veteran, and a beloved family member. He was everything a husband and father should be: hard-working, a protector, a provider, and a man of God. He loved his family, and there was nothing he wouldn’t do for them. He was married to the love of his life, Laura, for 63 years.
He is survived by his wife Laura, daughter Connie Cook, son Curtis Garrett, daughter Janet Garrett, daughter Kristen Garrett, grandson Wes Garrett, and granddaughter McKenze Cook. He is also survived by his brothers Carl Garrett, Earl Garrett, and sister Emma Baker.
