Robert Henry obit photoRobert Gene “Bob” Henry, 68, of Mercer, Missouri, passed away on Sunday, January 14, 2024, after a brief but courageous battle with cancer, surrounded by his family.

He was born on December 25, 1955, in Mercer, Missouri, the son of Hubert Archie and Mildred Kathleen (Stanford) Henry.

Bob graduated from Mercer High School in 1974. He was a devoted brother, a caring uncle, a hard worker, and an avid fisherman. Every summer, he could be found working in the hay fields alongside his brothers and nephews—a pastime he cherished. Bob shared a very special bond with his nieces and nephews, particularly enjoying playful banter with them. In his final days, he treasured moments with his great-niece as they enjoyed snacks and laughter together.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers Ronnie Stanford, Donnie Craig, and Jack Henry; and a niece, Amber Henry.

Bob is survived by his brothers, Danny Henry (companion, Kris Henkels) of Mercer, MO, and Rodney (Lori) Henry of Rowland, IA; sisters Ruth (Danny) Berndt and Martha (Burt) Clark, both of Mercer, MO; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A Graveside Celebration of Life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 20, at Evergreen Cemetery in Lineville, IA. Following the service, the family will host a lunch at the First Baptist Church of Lineville, IA. Instead of flowers, memorials may be directed to the family for a monument in care of Roberson Funeral Home, P.O. Box 316, Princeton, MO 64673.
