Bobby Gene Routh

September 17, 1942 — November 27, 2023

Lexington, Missouri

 

Bobby “Bob” Gene Routh of Lexington, Missouri, passed away on Monday, November 27, 2023, at his home, surrounded by family. Bob was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on September 17th, 1942. Bob spent most of his upbringing between the Midwest and the West coast before settling down in Missouri.  He was one of seven children. Although his siblings resided in different states, they all remained very close. In 1969, Bob married the love of his life, Mary Ferguson, and the couple raised two daughters, Paula and Pam.  Bob was blessed with seven grandchildren, Sydney (Matthew), Ryan, Caleb, Chloe, Ally (Tommy), Abby and Jack and was excited when he became a great grandpa to Cael, Jade and Addie.

 

Bob worked as a meatcutter most of his working career. He was also in the Missouri National Guard from 1964 to 1970. His favorite past time was putting out a garden each Spring and tending to it all season long. He also enjoyed fishing.  He always had a love of animals and had many beloved pets over the years.  But mostly, he loved spending time with his family.

 

Bob is survived by his wife, Mary, of the home, his daughters Paula Neer (Mark), of Lexington, MO and Pam Bailey (Kent)of Grain Valley, MO, along with his seven grandchildren and three great grandchildren.  Bob is also survived by his sister, Bonnie Bartlett (Jerry) of Gentry, Ark, sister Frances Spoon of Conroe, TX and brother Bill Routh of Springfield, MO.  He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews that he dearly loved. He was preceded in death by his parents, Earl and Myra Routh, sisters, Mary Sanders, Peggy Holzman and Barbara Henson.
