Bob Mabe

February 10, 1930 ~ July 21, 2022 (age 92)


Bob Mabe was born February 10, 1930 and entered into rest on July 21, 2022.


Bob loved big and was a larger than life entertainer. If you knew Bob, you knew he loved people and loved making all feel welcome. He started entertaining as a young child by singing for his school lunch. He sang professionally for 75+ years and even sang to his nurses on his death bed.


Bob committed his life to serving the Lord. He shared the message "you must be born again" with everyone he met. And even in his passing he would invite everyone to accept Jesus as their Savior. He would encourage all of us to strive to live a life worthy of the gifts God has given us. 


Bob is preceded in death by his mother and father, six brothers and four sisters. 


He is survived by his wife Sue Mabe, children Barry Mabe (Donna), Terry Mabe (Bev), Jewelene Freeman, Ronda Ayres (Pat), Duane Wilkinson (Sandy), Jeremy Mabe (Angie), Sang Bealer, Jon Siviravong (Samantha), 28 grandchildren, 33 great grandchildren, 10 great great grandchildren, and sisters Joan Bilyeu and Sharon Michel.


Visitation will be held Tuesday July 26th, 2022 from 6pm to 8pm at Friendly Baptist Church, 2751 Kirkland Dr, Branson, MO 65616. Family time will be from 5pm to 6pm.
