Robert E. Handshy

Robert E. Handshy, 69, passed away peacefully Saturday, May 21, 2022, in Warsaw. Known to anyone that knew him as Bob, he was a beloved husband, step-father, and friend. He was born Monday, Oct. 27, 1952, in St. Louis County, to Orville and Dorothea (Karches) Handshy.
The youngest of five children, he is survived by his loving wife of 32 years, Pamela (Stilley) of Ash Grove and step-daughter, Amanda Davis (Joshua) Shanks and two step-grandchildren, and older sister Lynn (Bruce) Fischer.
Handshy is preceded in death by his parents, Orville and Dorothea Handshy, his older brothers, Arthur and Orville, Jr. as well as older sister, Dorothy.

Handshy’s final wishes were to not have a memorial of any kind but would instead appreciate you joining his wife in a remembrance.  To honor his wishes, it is asked of everyone that knew him to do just that.  Wherever you are, and wherever you live around the globe, they ask on May 28, at 5 p.m., for you to have a drink (of your choosing) and remember the Bob you knew.
