Robbie Don Godwin of Johnson City, TX passed away Sunday, November 11, 2018 in Austin, TX. Rob was born July 24, 1939 in Levelland, TX to Robbie Harold Godwin and Juanita (Talley) Godwin. Robbie was a great father, great husband, and loved his family more than anything. And they loved him.

Rob worked in advertising in Houston for many years, specializing in oil field production services. He was a charter member of the Inwood Dads’ Club, and served as an elder at St. Giles Presbyterian Church. After moving to the Hill Country, Rob and Ann owned and operated Trendsetters print shop in Dripping Springs, and rejoiced in their grandchildren. Rob remained very involved in the community, contributing his infectious smile and amazing work ethic to many groups – he was a lay leader at Dripping Springs United Methodist Church, former president of the Dripping Springs Chamber of Commerce, an active Lions Club member, trained Stephen minister, Trustee Chair at the Johnson City First United Methodist Church, and president of the Hill Country Road Runners camping group. Rob did not get bored.
