Bobby Gene Abernathy of Perryville died Sunday, January 31, 2021, peacefully at his home.

He was born on October 25, 1932, in Crosstown, Missouri, to Edward and Mary (Cox) Abernathy, the youngest of eight children. He and Fredi Garris were married on November 10, 1963. She preceded him in death on February 18, 2013.

Bobby worked for Moldenhauer Alfalfa Mill in Menfro, MO for more than 30 years before crossing the railroad tracks to work at MFA until his retirement. He was a homebody and was the most content when sitting in his recliner visiting with family and friends. He was always willing to help others and never met a stranger. He will be best remembered for his kindness, sense of humor, and his ability to reassure and comfort others during hard times.

Bobby is survived by one son, Steven Abernathy, of Perryville and one daughter, Daisy (Daniel) Vance, of Jefferson City; two granddaughters, Rachel (Josh) Sparlin of Mission, Kansas, and Natalie Vance of Columbia, Missouri, and two great-grandchildren, Jace and Coraline Sparlin.

He was preceded in death by his loving wife; parents; four brothers, Arlous, Ivan, Wallace, and Paul Abernathy; and three sisters, Virgie Parrott, Velma Settlemoir, and Alice Rubel.

Funeral services will be private for the family. Arrangements were made by Liley Funeral Home in Marble Hill, Missouri.

Memorial contributions may be made to Pleasant Grove Baptist Church or Crown Hospice.
