Coy Gilbreath

Coy Grant Gilbreath received his heavenly wings on March 4, 2021. He was born on August 14, 2013 in Sulphur Springs, Texas and resided in Quitman, Texas.  A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, March 8, at 2:00 PM at the Quitman Youth Foundation Baseball Fields.  Visitation will be held Sunday, March 7, from 5:00 – 8:00 PM at Lowe Funeral Home in Quitman.  Interment will follow at Rock Hill Cemetery.  Coy attended Quitman Elementary School and enjoyed basketball, football, baseball, fishing and spending time with his family, especially his brother Cash. Coy was a loving soul who touched the lives of many throughout his young journey and was known for his outgoing personality and sweet smile. People could always count on Coy for a hug and an “I love you”.  Coy was greeted in heaven by great-grandparents Billy Frank and Mary Gilbreath, Jessie Martin, Jr., Wilson M. and Thadis Hudnall, and George and Edna Vandergriff; and grandfather Ronnie Moreland. Left to cherish his memories are his parents Todd and Manda Gilbreath of Quitman and Wendy Gilbreath of Quitman; one brother, Cash Gilbreath, and two sisters, Hannah Gilbreath and Jaycee Whitehead; grandparents Greg and Becky Gilbreath of Quitman, Lonnie and Linda Hudnall of Sulphur Springs, and David and Terri Click of Mineola; great-grandparents Latrece Martin of Edgewood and Tim and Linda Phillips of Holly Lake. Also left to cherish his sweet smile and fun-loving personality are his great-aunt Vicki Clanton and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and classmates. Although we may never understand why he was taken from us at such a young age, we will not allow this to rock our faith because we know Coy was pure at heart and is now a soldier of the Lord. We did not lose a son because we know exactly where he is: catching the biggest fish heaven has to offer. Fly high, Son.  Serving as Pallbearers will be Dennis Hunt, Cody Gilbreath, Justin Lawson, David Spindle, Richard Spears, and Dustin Clanton. **There will be a few chairs setup in the infield for the family and a few friends.  Anyone requiring a chair during the Service will want to bring one.  Thank you.

We heard about this young man I heard he loved to fish. I will go out tomorrow on lake Cedar Creek Lake and celebrate his life he had on the earth. I wish I had met him but as a fisherman i don't need to meet him. We are family our heart goes out to you. I will be saying a prayer tonight and tommorow for God almighty will put His loving arms around you.

I never had the pleasure of meeting this young man but Ive shared his life through the eyes and stories of my son, Justin and through Facebook. As a parent my heart broke for the parents. One day while praying, I received these words:

Fishing with the Angels

I bowed my head and asked God why?
Why did this boy have to die?
Why, dear Lord take one so young?
When his life hadnt yet really begun.
Why dear Lord, can you answer me please?
A life so vibrant so full and so free!
We understand that time is yours.
You decide when to close open doors.
You decide when its time to call.
You see the sparrow before its fall.
The wound is so real. Its way too much pain.
Can you send us a rainbow in place of this rain?
The Lord pondered on the questions for a minute or two
Then ever so sweetly said let me explain somthing to you.
I know you are hurting. I feel your pain
The loss of this child was Heavens gain.
My father once lost his only child,
But we too were once reconciled.
This moment is not forever. Fear not. It too will end
Youll one day be joined together with your family and your friends.
But for now we must take him, hes been chosen to fulfill a wish.
The angels saw it was so much fun
They decided they wanted to fish.
So my father sent me to get this boy
With these instructions Catch me a big one, Coy!
