Joseph Steven Garst

February 21, 1990 — March 8, 2024

Joseph Steven Garst, affectionately known as Joey to his friends and family, passed away on March 8, 2024, at the age of 34, in his hometown of Greenville, SC, the very place where his story began on February 21, 1990. Joey's life was a testament to the power of love, adventure, and courage, traits that he embodied every day and that left an indelible mark on the hearts of those who knew him.

Joey was a devoted son to his mother, Ronda Garst, and a loving father to his daughter, Chloe Garst, who was the light of his life. His role as a father was the one he cherished the most, and his bond with Chloe was unbreakable. Laci Timms, Chloe's mother, and Joey shared a deep connection through their daughter, and their mutual dedication to her well-being and happiness was unwavering. Joey's sister, Sunshine Andrews (deceased), his cousin Autumn Powers and his niece, Kathryn Andrews, shared many joyful moments with him, filled with laughter and love. Also survived by his Aunt and Uncle Kim and Stan Stine. His family was the cornerstone of his existence, with his grandmother, Yvonne Hyatt, and grandfather, Steve Hyatt, providing a foundation of support and wisdom that shaped the man he became.

Professionally, Joey was a self-employed auto mechanic, a career that allowed him to combine his passion for cars with his exceptional skill and work ethic. His hands were rarely clean, but his heart was always full, as he found great satisfaction in repairing and restoring vehicles, ensuring that his clients could safely return to the road. His work was not just a job; it was a calling, and Joey approached each project with precision and pride.

A member of St. Mark United Methodist Church, Joey was an active participant in his community, where he shared his talents and time with others. His faith was a quiet but powerful force in his life, guiding him through the trials and triumphs with a steady grace.

Joey's interests were as dynamic as his personality. He had an unwavering love for motorcycles, cars, and dirt bikes, which not only provided him with a sense of freedom but also served as a canvas for his creativity. The roar of an engine was music to his ears, and the open road was his sanctuary. He lived for the thrill of the ride, the wind in his face, and the camaraderie found within the biking community.

Those who knew Joey would describe him as loving, adventurous, and courageous. He approached life with an open heart, a daring spirit, and a bravery that inspired others to live fully. Joey's legacy is not defined by the years he lived but by the depth of his impact and the love he gave so freely.

As we bid farewell to Joseph Steven Garst, we celebrate a life lived with gusto and generosity. Joey's memory will continue to guide and uplift us, reminding us to embrace each day with the same zest and fearlessness that he did. He will be profoundly missed by his family, friends, and all who were fortunate enough to cross paths with him. Joey's spirit, a beacon of love and adventure, will forever shine brightly in the lives he touched. Memorial services will be held by the family at a later date.
