Garnet was born in Washington County to Charlie and Lydia Addicks Eimann. He married the love of his life Margie Lee Kirwin on August 14, 1948. Garnet adored and loved his wife according to scripture and honored her as the mother of his children. He worked for many years with the TAMU Physical Plant and the TAMU Fire Department, where he retired from both. Garnet was a member of Fellowship Freewill Baptist Church for a number of years. He was very instrumental and active with Wellborn Water Supply as a founding member. He also served on the Brazos and Colorado Water Works Association. Garnet enjoyed traveling and taking his bride to many places as their many first dates. He could often be found tending to his cattle and walking his property line-checking fence. He and his domino-playing friends will miss each other’s company.
His wife of 60 years, Margie Kirwin Eimann; his parents, brothers Glen Eimann and Gilbert Eimann; and sister, Evelyn Lorenz, precede him in death.
His survivors include his son, Dane and wife Denise Eimann; his daughter, Carolyn and husband Mike Gibbens; his grandchildren, Dwayne and wife Toni Eimann, DeAnna and husband Richard Ross, Danna Eimann, Cathy and husband Nathan Rice, and Kevin Gibbens; and ten great-grandchildren; sister, Mary Dell Ensz; and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at St Joseph Manor for the kind and compassionate care of their loved one.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations may be made to Hospice Brazos Valley at 502 W. 26th St., Bryan, Texas 77803.
