Mr. Robert Lee Hoyett was born to the union of the late Columbus Hoyett and Frannie Parker Hoyett of Coosa County, Alabama. Robert was the youngest of their eight children. At any early age he accepted Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior and became a member of Peace and Goodwill Missionary Baptist Church in Cottage Grove, Alabama.
Everyone knew Robert as the soft-spoken man that he was. He didn’t talk much, but everyone knew when he was present. He was a dedicated and committed member of Peace and Goodwill Church. He served on the Board of Trustees, food service ministry, and was a dedicated member of the choir, his favorite song being “Mary Don’t You Weep”.
Robert was the father of two children. A son, Gregory Bernard Hoyett, who preceded him in death and a daughter Vonda Lynn Farrar. Robert lived in Rockford until he was no longer able to live alone. He moved to Atlanta where he lived the remainder of his days with his daughter, son-in-law, grandsons, and great-grandson. Robert enjoyed his life until his last days. He peacefully transitioned in his sleep on the morning of March 30, 2022.
He leaves to cherish his memories: daughter, Vonda Farrar (Tony) of Atlanta, Georgia; 5 grandsons, Corey Lewis, Chase Lewis, Amari Farrar, Anthony Farrar, Jr., and Arrington Farrar, all of Atlanta, Georgia; One sister Isabell Burton, of Kellyton, Alabama; One brother, Ocie Hoyett (Savannah) of Cleveland, Ohio; A special family friend Carol Massengale, who was always there to help in any way, and a very special care-giver, Negretta Okeze, who thought the world of “her guy”. He also leaves to cherish his memory nieces and nephews, who love him dearly.
