On the morning of 2/21/21, Robert “Bob” Wack of Mexia, passed away. He was 81. Bob was born July 7, 1939 in St. Louis Missouri to Peter W. Wack and Frances V. Collins.
Bob had been a resident of Mexia, TX at the time of his death, having moved to the area in or around 2013.
We don’t know a whole lot about Bob – he was one of the many unseen who live in the shadows of homelessness. However, he was originally from St. Louis, he was a US Army Veteran (2 years active, 4 years reserve), and a long-haul trucker. Bob pulled into Mexia one day and just decided to stay.
Bob is survived by his constant companion, a little Lhasa apso mix. He always made sure his little dog was fed first, and always the best of what he had. He is survived by four children, only two known at this time, Melinda "Mindy" Farabee and Lisa Peck.
We will have a Celebration of Life for Bob on March 4, 2021, 10:00 AM, at Blair-Stubbs Funeral Home with Rev. Jenn Pick officiating. To protect attendees from illness, masks will be required.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that monetary donations be made to Mexia Area Nutrition, Needs, and Homeless Advocates (MANNHA), Veteran Partners of Texas, VFW Post 4694, or any homeless charity of your choice, as well as nonperishable food donations to your local Blessing Boxes.
