In Loving Memory

Stack, Robert “Bob”

February 15, 1954 - May 13, 2024

Robert “Bob” Stack passed on 5/13/2024 in his happy place, deer camp with a smile on his face and in his sleep.

Originally from Lemay, in his later years he resided in Imperial with his sister Mary and neice Melissa ‘Missy”. Bob first and foremost was a MARINE, Semper Fi. He was a Vietnam Vet. He would tell great stories of his time when he felt comfortable to do so. He loved the open road. He was a truck driver for 30+ years befor his heart started giving him issues. He was a hunter. His happy place was going out to deer camp and spending time with his friends around a camp fire, drinking a beer or crown and pepsi. He loved the peace and quiet and solitude deer camp brought. Then she shananigans woul entail when all the guys would get there. He would go for a few weeks at a time or long weekends. In the past 2+ years he would take his beloved dog Sammy with him. She was with him 24/7. They would go on car rides to get cigarettes or coffee. Riding on his lap or the console in his truck, on the ATV. They were inseparable.

Bob was informed when he had his most recent pacemaker updated that when he passed it could be donated to to help a dog. With some research by Kutis, the family is happy to say his pacemaker will be going to the University of Missouri Veternary Department in Columbia, MO to be re-purposed for a dog.

Bob was for the most part a quiet man. Since the passing of his brother-in-law, he took on the rol eof “Big Brother” more seriously in taking care of his sister Mary and neice Missy. In doing so, he learned to open up more. He would go on brother/sister dates to the movies, shopping, and out to dinner and lunch creating memories with people he loved, which he didn’t say often but was learning how to do. He was a confidant to them both. And a buffer to their mother/daughter bickering from time to time.

His step children Doug Starnes (Christy), Chris Starnes (Diana), and Lindsey Holt(Tim). Four grandchilren Hailey, Mi, Austin, and Grant.
