Bob E. Rumley Sr., 64, of Gray Summit passed away on Monday, January 20, 2020. Bob was born on July 19, 1955, in Greencastle, Indiana to the late Fred and Cloradean (nee Winkler) Rumley and on January 6, 1990, he married Debbie Schneider in St. Louis. Bob was a straight shooter who spoke his mind, he was always warm and friendly to friends and family. He loved to share his wonderful sense of humor and his Dream Catcher creations with the people who surrounded him. He was an avid fan of Westerns, cowboy boots, and the outdoors. But truly what Bob loved the most was his family, he loved long afternoons and evenings helping Meghan with her softball skills or cheering her on, bonding with his dogs through training, and spending time with the love of his life for over 30 years, Debbie.
