Billie C. "Bill" Garner, age 78, of Monett, MO, passed from this life to his eternal home on Monday morning, April 1, 2013, while at Cox South Hospital in Springfield, MO.

Bill was born on April 26, 1934 in Eagle Rock, MO, son of the late Floyd and Golda (Reed) Garner. Bill grew up in the Cassville area and had attended school in Butterfield until his junior year when he began going to school in Cassville. Bill graduated from Cassville High School in 1951. Bill then enlisted in the United States Army, where he was stationed in Germany. He was employed as Meat Department Manager for Moss Market and for Ramey's, retiring from Cassville Ramey's in 1997. Bill was also a U.S.D.A. Food Inspector. He was a member of the St. John's Lutheran Church in Monett and a former member of the Cassville Lion's Club. Many things brought joy to Bill's life including restoring classic cars. He especially liked antique Mercedes Benz and Austin Healey. He enjoyed bowling, hunting and traveling with his wife. The most joy, however, came with spending time with family and friends.

On December 28, 1962, at St. John's Lutheran Church, Bill and Carlene Brown were united in marriage. They were blessed with over 50 years of companionship. Bill is survived by his wife Carlene, of the home; one sister, Jean Conn, of Aurora, MO; one sister-in-law, Patsy Garner, of Cassville; one brother-in-law, Edward Brown, of Nashville, TN; seven nieces and nephews; nine great nieces and nephews; and three great-great nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by two brothers, Willis and Wesley Garner.
