Obituary for Robert McMahan

Robert McMahan
Rev. Robert L. "Bob" McMahan Sr, 79, formerly of Williamsville, Mo, passed away Monday, February 5, 2018, at Greenville Health Care Center. He was born July 1, 1938, near Otter Creek in rural Wayne County to Harvey and Lillie Ann (Bilbrey) McMahan.
Bob was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He married Juanita Hughes, July 20, 1957. Early in Bob's career he learned the skill of hanging drywall and painting. That gave him the opportunity to build his own company. His sons carry on his legacy through their own work using the skills he taught them many years ago. In his younger years friends would gather on a Friday evening for “pick’n and sing’n” or a good game of Rummy. He enjoyed his chickens, goats, dogs, hunting, fishing, and a good western. He received the Lord around 1967 and moved to Wayne County in 1978 settling in Piedmont when he was called to preach and ordained around 1985. He pastored Shady Nook Missionary Baptist Church, Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church, and Lebanon Missionary Baptist Church, all in Piedmont, and a small Missionary Baptist Church in Grandin, MO, leading many to the Lord. Upon retirement, he supplied many churches in the surrounding area. He was a member of Lebanon Missionary Baptist Church at the time of his passing.
He is survived by children: Robert L. McMahan Jr. and wife Dana of Troy, Il, Roger G. McMahan and wife Christie of Bloomfield, MO, Carolyn Sue Wolf of Piedmont, MO, Catherine L. Bohannan of Piedmont, MO, and Carla Street and husband Bruce of Williamsville, MO; sister: Judy Bishop of Piedmont, MO; thirteen grandchildren, twenty-two great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild on the way.
He is preceded in death by his parents; loving wife Juanita; one grandchild: Casey Shane Wolf; five brothers: Cleo, Clecy, Norman, Bill, and Winifred; and four sisters: Wilma Bratton, Macey McMillan, Joy Cook, Gayle Bilbrey. .

Visitation was held Wednesday, February 7, 2018, at Ruegg Funeral Home, Piedmont, MO, at 4:30 pm. Funeral followed Thursday, February 8, 2018, at 11:00 am at the chapel. Pastors Tim Adams and Ron Degonia ministered to the family. Lucas Wolf, Robert McMahan III, Glen McMahan, James Robert Golden, Adam Moeller and Scott Cradic served as pallbearers. Burial was at Duncan Cemetery near Piedmont. Online condolences can be made at www.rueggfuneralhomes.com
