Robert E. McAdory, Sr.

Robert Earl McAdory, Sr., 82, passed away on Sunday, December 6, 2020, at Louisville Healthcare in Louisville, Mississippi. A memorial service is planned for January 15, 2021.

Robert was born February 16, 1938, to Russell Lamar and Lillian Patterson McAdory in Winston County, Mississippi. He was married to Barbara Jean “Bobbie” Garrard McAdory for more than 50 years until her death in January 2015. Robert was a member of Oak Grove Baptist Church in Noxapater, Mississippi. He retired from Georgia Pacific Plywood Plant in 1996 with 25 years of dedicated service. Robert worked in the plywood business for most of his adult life. Even after retiring, he returned to Louisville Plywood as a security guard for several years until his health prevented him from working longer. Most people knew him for his avid gardening as he always had plenty and sold tomatoes and other vegetables for many years.

Robert is survived by his daughter Mary Jeanenne McCool and husband David and his son Robert E. McAdory, Jr., all of Louisville. One of his greatest joys was being “Pawpaw Mac” to his grandchildren: Patrick Eubanks (Katie), Chris Eubanks (Nikki), Billy Reynolds (Amanda), Brad Reynolds (Jennifer), Beth Workman (Billy), Jamie McAdory, Tabbitha McAdory, Stacie McAdory, and Bubba McAdory. He is also survived by 20 great-grandchildren and four great-great grandchildren as well as a host of loving nieces and nephews. Robert is survived by his sister Estelle Chiles (J. W.) and three sisters-in-law: Ann McAdory, Hilda McAdory, and Joy McAdory. He was preceded in death by his wife Barbara “Bobbie” McAdory, his parents, three brothers: Billy McAdory, T. H. McAdory, and Roy McAdory, and his sister Eileen Edmondson.

Memorials in honor of Robert may be given to Oak Grove Baptist Church, 19 Asa Thomas Road, Noxapater, MS 39346.
