Robert Jack “Bob” Cason of Cuba, Missouri was born on Saturday, July 25, 1942 in St. Louis, Missouri to Alexander and Leah M. (Worley) Cason and passed away on Tuesday, March 23, 2021 at the age of 78 years.
Bob married Trude Winkler on December 29, 1962 in St. Louis, Missouri.
Bob attended Mizzou for one year, but quickly realized college was not for him. He joined the Meat Cutters Union, thanks to a call from his best friend Jim Graves in 1963 and was a butcher for 40 years, retiring in 2003. He loved being a butcher and serving customers at the Kroger and Schnucks stores in St. Louis and later at Mace Supermarket in Cuba, Missouri.
After he retired, he and Trude moved from their home in Crestwood, where they raised their four children and made many memories. They would continue making memories at the farm.
Being a true Cason, Bob had a quick wit and he could always liven up the party. He enjoyed fishing, riding his side by side on the farm, watching the Price Is Right and a few other shows that you needed to know the time of before you stopped by or gave him a call.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Alexander and Leah Cason; wife, Trude Cason; one sister-in-law, Judy Miriani; and one brother-in-law, Jack Winkler.
He is survived by his four children, Rob and wife Stephanie Cason of St. Louis, Missouri, Becky and husband Keith Doyle of Cuba, Missouri, Keith and wife Karin Cason of St. Louis, Missouri and Mike and wife Jennifer Cason of St. Louis, Missouri; seven grandchildren, Dustin and fianceé Melissa Doyle, Kacey Doyle, Leah, Jack, Ava, Chase and Cruze Cason; one sister, Jean and husband Ted Rigden of Cuba, Missouri; three brothers, Larry and wife Paula Cason, Joe and wife Kelly Cason, Bill and fianceé Debbie Cason, all of Cuba, Missouri; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Ben Miriani, Jeanne and husband Dave Nicholson, Mary Kay and husband Henry Taber, Opie and husband George McAllister, Joy and husband Paul Eaton; other relatives and friends.
