Arthur Melvin Garrett was born 8-18-17 near Monaville, to James A. and Stella 
Garrett. Arthur was well-known in Waller County as a hard worker and devout 
Christian.
He loved playing 42 and was an excellent gardener. A self-taught electrician, 
he installed the electric wiring in many businesses along old Highway 290 into 
Houston and in most of the residences near his home in the Field Store-Union 
area. He built three houses, three barns, countless outbuildings, and the 
Quonset hut on Old Hwy 290 and FM 362. As a member of IBEW 716, his proudest 
accomplishments were his work on the Ship Channel Bridge at Corpus Christi 
and in Bush Intercontinental Airport’s Terminal C. He grew peanuts for the war 
effort during World War II, blacksmithed, welded, raised chickens, gardened 
organically, ran cattle, built and learned to fly his own plane, and even played 
the guitar and sang. He did a lot of plumbing, concrete work, farm equipment and 
tractor repair. At one time, he dredged for gold in the Colorado Rockies, and he 
learned to facet gems, polish cabochons and make jewelry.
Once during heavy rains, Spring Creek covered the road near his home, and the 
mailman could not get through on his rounds. Arthur saddled his old horse, took 
the mailbag, forded the creek, and delivered the mail.
Arthur is survived by his wife, Judy; daughters, Gina and Julia; four grand-
children; two great grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews as well as 
Judy’s sons, Jimmy and Tom Cooke.
