Garett Sean Lewis
1965 - 2016
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved Garett, who returned home to the Lord on May 14, 2016.
Garett was born May 17, 1965 in Santa Barbara, California and resided there most of his life. Garett attended Kellogg School, Goleta Valley Junior High and graduated from Dos Pueblos High School in 1983. Garett was employed by Home Improvement and various other companies in Santa Barbara and Gold Coast Draft in Moorpark, CA. Garett loved the ocean and fishing, playing the drums, listening to rock and country music, and was exceptional in the graphic arts. He was a kind person, generous to a fault, and always willing to lend a hand. He was a true animal lover and spent many hours caring for a myriad of pets. Most important, Garett loved his family and his life.
Garett is preceded in death by his daughter, Breanne Renee Lewis, his maternal grandfather Mr. Joseph Galvez, of Carpinteria, CA, and his paternal grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Lealia and Donald Lewis of Santa Barbara. He is survived by his mother, Connie Mireles and her husband Bob, of Santa Barbara, and his father Gary Lewis, of Bakersfield, and two brothers Christopher and Jeffrey. Garett is also survived by his grandmother, Esther Galvez (Bill Cox), of Carpinteria, numerous aunts, uncles and cousins that make up a very close extended family.
Garett will be laid to rest in a ceremony at Goleta Cemetery, 44 S. San Antonio Rd., Santa Barbara, CA 93110 at 11 a.m. Saturday May 28, 2016. A private memorial to follow. Arrangements are under the care of Alma Funeral Home and Cremation Services in Bakersfield and Goleta Cemetery.
