Robert Allen Ferguson was born on August 25, 1943, to Robert E. and Rose E. (Keys) Ferguson in Macomb, Missouri. He passed away on September 1, 2022, at his home in Mountain View, Missouri.
He went to a one-room schoolhouse in Caulfield, Missouri, until eighth grade, and then he went to West Plains High School. Bob accepted his Lord and Savior at a young age, and lived for the Lord for the rest of his life.
Bob met the love of his life, Wanda Dillinger, at Bakersfield Assembly of God Church in 1962. They were united in marriage on August 26, 1963, and they spent 59 happy years together.
He was a contract milk hauler from January 30, 1964, until December 24, 1994. Robert said he never worked a day as long as he was hauling milk. He loved his job, and after that, he worked at the flooring mill and a few other jobs until he became disabled. Bob loved to go to church, attend singings, go out to eat, and travel.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Rose Ferguson; his half-brother, James Kitts; and uncle and aunt, Mitchell and Ina Lawing, who helped raise him.
Survivors include his wife, Wanda Ferguson, and seven cousins, Jarrett Lawing, Mark Lawing, Steve Lawing, Eric Lawing, Kent Lawing, Carolyn Campbell, and Linda Fey.
