Obituary For Robert Paul Bemiss

Robert “Rob or Robbie” Paul Bemiss, 31, of Sedalia passed away Friday June 25, 2021, in Sedalia, Mo. He was born on January 20, 1990, in Sedalia, Mo. the son of Roy A. Bemiss and Faith L. (Benson) Bemiss, who reside in Sedalia.

In addition to his parents he is survived by five children, Joseph (Joey) Jackson, Annalynn Bemiss, Chayce Bemiss, and Waylon Bemiss, all of Sedalia and Cameron Lipe, of Jefferson City, Mo.; a sister, Melissa Bemiss Bedwell, of Sedalia, Mo.; a brother, Christopher Bemiss, of Sedalia; Paternal Grandmother, Hazel Cooper, of Neosho, Mo.; two nieces, ShiAnn Bedwell and Merci Bedwell; and one nephew, Andrew Bedwell.

Robbie loved music. He was a fan of many types of music including classic country music such as Hank Williams, Jr, Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings. He also enjoyed music such as Guns N’ Roses, Five Finger Death Punch, and Pantera. Surprisingly unknown to many, he also loved opera, especially “Ava Maria.” He hoped one day to attend an authentic Italian Opera with his mom.

He loved his grey truck and spent many hours customizing the truck into the pride of his eye. He loved to ride motorcycles and will be escorted to his final resting place by several fellow riders. He was a member of the BCA pool league in Sedalia and participated in several tournaments.

Rob spent many childhood hours under foot with his dad and brother at construction sites and grew into a fine drywall professional, eventually taking over the business Bemiss Drywall, Inc. for his father.

Most of all, Robbie loved his children and family. There wasn’t a thing he wouldn’t do for his family. Be it a brand-new fence, digging a tomato garden, starting a tree-house with ALL of the kids, being the clown for birthday parties, car repairs or helping the elderly neighbors with yard and garden work - He was always there and ready to help.

Rob loved to cook and was a connoisseur of fine teas. He loved a smart cup of Earl Grey tea, gaining him the childhood nickname of “Earl the Pearl” or “The Pearly Earl.” He spent holidays cooking prime rib with his sister, arguing with her over the amount of heat in the horseradish sauce. Rob and his dad spent many hours dueling over the grill, establishing manhood in the name of grill master. By the way… “Do you squish the burgers or let them be?” A question that was never answered.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Leonard and Lucille Benson; and paternal grandfather, Robert Paul Bemiss.

Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, June 30, 2021, at Rea Funeral Chapel with Rev. Michael Jackson officiating.

The family will receive friends from 1 p.m. until service time at the chapel.

Burial will be at Memorial Park Cemetery, Sedalia, Mo with an escort by fellow motorcycle riders.

Pallbearers will be Krisna Chumpraphai, Jason Morgan, Michael Palmer, Terry Palmer, Robert Petersen, Christopher LuAllen, and Floyd Esser, III.

Honorary bearers will be Christopher Bemiss, Joseph Jackson, Annalynn Bemiss, Chayce Bemiss, Cameron Lipe, Waylon Bemiss, ShiAnn Bedwell, Andrew Bedwell, and Merci Bedwell.

Memorial contributions may be made to suicide prevention organization in care of Rea Funeral Chapel.

    Sending prayers & love to his kids and family during this time. The memories I have of Robby are all so happy and so positive. His soul was so pure and such a good person. There isn't words to describe just how highly I think of him and always will!!! Such a beautiful person inside & out. It very rare to find a man these days who loves his children the way he loved his. He bragged about them all the time and was so incredibly proud of them!!! Robby you will forever be missed, sending lots of love your way and until we meet again... Crystal

    Roy and Faith, and families, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I remember fondly the time you had just sheetrocked our little "house on the Milo" and then we met you on the Royal Gorge bridge as we were leaving! Though we do not understand why things happen, I find much comfort in knowing our Lord is in control and He loves us. Hold onto this truth in this difficult time. It's getting me through my recent loss along with knowing you are loved by family, friends, and brethren who are praying for you. God bless you deeply. Love in Christ, John

    I'm truly heartbroken, and can't begin to explain how devastating this is to me. Rob was a brother to me, and will always be. My heart goes out to everyone who had the privilege of being a part of his life.

    I met Robert in 2014 when we were both in Pettis Co. Drug Court. None of us were thrilled to be there, since we all got there on less than ideal terms. I remember that Robert was always smiling and loved to joke around. It was nice to have him in the group, as he got along with everyone and kept the whole group laughing. I know how dark addiction and mental illness can be, and I pray that Robert found some peace. I am so sorry for your loss.
