Robert Wayne Petitt

April 9, 1948 - December 29, 2021

Robert Wayne Petitt, 73, of Vidor passed away on Wednesday, December 29, 2021. He was preceded in death by his beloved, wonderful wife Sylvia Broussard Petitt, of Vidor, his parents Arvel and Katie Louise Petitt, of Vidor, his brother, Miller Petitt, of California, and sister Beverly Matthews of Vidor.

Robert was born April 9, 1948, in Beaumont, Texas. He worked as a skilled carpenter for over 50 years. He was an accomplished author, having been published multiple times. Robert was a salt of the earth type of man. He enjoyed his sports, his barbeque and absolutely loved his dogs.

He will be greatly missed by his children, Rikki Gifford of Beaumont, Kelly Thorn and her husband, Jason, of Montrose, CO; and Justin Petitt, of Beaumont; his grandchildren, Jason Jr., Cody, Cole, and Cameron; sister Kay Watson, of Ward, CO; and his brother Ron Petitt, of Loveland, CO.

For those who knew this man, be at peace of heart. For he lived, he loved, he laughed… always on his own terms. He was in life as he is now in heaven…A True Texas Outlaw.

A memorial for Robert Petitt will be held at a later date. Cremation arrangements were handled through Broussard’s Crematorium under the direction of Broussard’s, 2000 McFaddin Avenue, Beaumont.

    What a sweet obituary and testament to the Grace that Jesus so freely gives

    Dear loving Brother, I love you and miss you immensely and will always. I will continue to try to text/talk with you weekly as we have for the past years since Mother and Sylvia went home to be with the Lord. You are there with them now. I now know you both have beautiful, perfect bodies and live with God. I will see you all soon. Praise Jesus for His forgiveness of our sins when we repent which allows us to be with our loved ones when we leave this earthly body. 1/21/2022
