Robert Lynn Garner passed away at his home in North Myrtle Beach on October 4, 2020. He was born on January 3, 1945 to Willie and Eliza Melvin Garner. A native of Dublin, he was employed by Honeywell and Dupont for many years. He was married to Rita “Molly” Singletary Garner for 56 years. The marriage produced two daughters, Liza and Laura. He was a long-standing member of Beth Car Presbyterian Church. As a man of deep faith, Robert endured decades of chronic illness with grace and dignity. Never one to complain, he always gave an impossible situation to God.
Robert enjoyed fishing, hunting, horses, travel, NASCAR racing, and most of all, golf with family and friends, and his beloved dogs. His life can be summed up by describing him as a loving and devoted husband and father as well as a loyal friend.
Preceding Robert in death were his parents, daughter, Laura Garner and sister Libby G. Hunter. Surviving are his wife, Molly, daughter, Liza, and brothers, Jimmy Chinnis and Billy Garner.
A graveside service will be held at Allen Family Cemetery off Hwy 87 in Tar Heel at 4:00 pm on Thursday, October 8, 2020. Pastors Johnny Simpson and May Craven will officiate.
