Garrett Bond Robbins

November 9, 1992 — February 9, 2024

Woodway, Texas

Garrett Bond Robbins of Woodway, Texas entered his heavenly home peacefully in his sleep on February 9th, 2024. Garrett was born on November 9th, 1992 to John and Gaybeth Robbins in Georgetown, Texas. As a child, Garrett loved to read, skateboard, ride his bike, and play with his brothers, Robby and Travis. In high school, Garrett participated in FFA, Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), theater, and Zoo Crew through the Cameron Park Zoo, and was a member of the first graduating class of the Waco Junior Police Academy. He also loved participating in the sound and media ministry at Columbus Avenue Baptist Church. He was the first high school student to assist in this ministry, laying the groundwork for other students to do the same. With a life-long interest in working on cars, he spent many hours “under the hood”. Most treasured are the countless hours he spent with his dad working on his 1965 Mustang gifted to him by his Uncle James.

After proudly receiving his diploma from Midway High School in 2011, Garrett completed an Associate's of Applied Science Degree in Electrical Power and Control at TSTC in 2018. He also became a Licensed Pharmaceutical Technician after working many years as a pharmacy tech at Walgreens. He was most recently employed as an electrical power and control field technician at Schneider Electric in Dallas, Texas.

Garrett was gentle, good-natured, and encouraging - always rooting for the underdog. He will be remembered for the compassion and kind heart that he had for others. Garrett was also a wonderful conversationalist who never met a stranger. Even as a little boy he would approach someone he did not know and say, “Hi, my name is Garrett and it starts with a ‘G’”.

Garrett trusted Jesus as his Savior and sought to pursue his relationship with God. He married Catherine Elizabeth (Daunis) Robbins on January 28, 2013. His greatest joys in life were their children Lynnette and Gavin.  Tea parties, ball games, toy cars and father/child conversations will be greatly missed by his son and daughter. Lynnette and Gavin both loved to dance with their daddy, and he was their fiercest defender when the world seemed daunting.

Garrett loved to eat. His wife and children enjoyed countless adventures planned around new restaurants, as well as delicious meals he masterfully created. In Texas, the family enjoyed museums, parks, aquariums and the beach, and they vacationed in Colorado, Nevada, California, and Washington, D.C.

Garrett loved fiercely, and there was little he wouldn’t do for the people he cared for. He gardened, made garden boxes, and secured a job in California near beaches and mountains to make Catherine's dreams a reality. He fought for justice and provided a place to call "home" for many friends with no expectation of repayment. His family was the love of his life. Catherine, Lynnette, and Gavin will miss his constant support and unwavering love.

Garrett is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Jesse and Barbara Barrier and two unborn children, with whom he has now been joyfully reunited.

Survivors include his parents John and Gaybeth Robbins, brothers Robby (Hollie) Robbins and Travis Robbins, sisters Mai Lin and Gracie Barrier, wife Catherine, children Lynnette and Gavin Robbins, and in-laws Don and Sherri Daunis. He also leaves behind paternal grandparents Jim and Martha Robbins and a large extended family who loved him dearly.

A celebration of Garrett's life will be held at First Woodway Baptist Church at 2:00 p.m. on February 17 preceded by a visitation at 1:00 p.m. and followed by a graveside service. The service will be officiated by Garrett's Uncle Kent Mathias, Sr., and music is being provided by his good friend Art Wellborn and sister Mai Lin Barrier. He will be interned at Stanford Chapel Cemetery in Lorena, Texas. Pallbearers include Robby Robbins, Travis Robbins, Christopher Barrier, Cameron Barrier, Dustin Barrier, Kent Mathias, Jr., Steven Mathias, and Andrew Mathias.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Grace Gardens Funeral Home, Schneider Electric, Bird Kultgen Ford, First Woodway Baptist Church, and the many friends and family who have prayed and cared for the family since Garrett's passing.
