Obituary of Robert McGrew
Please share a memory of Robert to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Mr. Robert Leo McGrew, age 71, of Fernandina Beach, Florida, went home to be with the Lord on February 22, 2023, after a brave battle with cancer. Born in Houston, Missouri on April 6, 1951, he was the middle of three children. Bob was raised in Raymondville, Missouri and attended Houston High School. He fell in love with cars at a very young age as he and his father worked on them together. One of his hobbies was going to stock car races on the weekends and working in the pits of cars with Don Crum when he was just in grade school. At the age of 16, Bob began cultivating his skills for his lifelong trade under the direction of Kyle Sillyman, as an auto body craftsman. One of his passions was fishing. Being in Fernandina Beach, surrounded by water, was the perfect place to enjoy fishing during his retirement. He was always smiling, full of life, and loved spending time with his family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents John and Aggie McGrew, as well as his brother John McGrew, Sr. and step-son Shane. He is survived by his sister Louise Sciotto, daughter Robyn Ford (Tony), step-daughter Elisabeth, step-son Casey, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. A mass celebrating Bob’s life will be held on March 11, 2023 at 11:00 at Church of the Messiah with Father Scott Looker, Celebrant. Mr. McGrew will be laid to rest in Allen Cemetery, Raymondville, Missouri.
