Robert Lee Wheatley was born March 22, 1927 in Bates County, Missouri, son of Bert A. and Byrdie (Nehring) Wheatley. He was united in marriage to Dorothy Kauffman on November 9, 1952.

Bob is best remembered as a husband, father, grandfather, and friend. His world revolved around his wife and his daughter – that is, until the football game came on. You could spend time with him then, but it had to be watching the game!

Bob was preceded in death by his parents and his beloved wife, Dorothy on September 28 of 2015. He is survived by his daughter, Becky Wheatley; and his grandchildren, Alexandra and Scott Aldridge.

    I was so very sorry to here about your Dad. I know everyone will remember his smile, never saw him without one. What I remember most is his quiet but glinting eyes, it was like he knew something no one else knew. We will keep you in our prayers. All our love to you and the kids.
