Robert D. Reazin, 82, Leroy: April 9, 1941 – Feb. 1, 2024

LEROY, Kan. – Robert “Bob” Duane Reazin was born April 9, 1941, at Stafford, Kan., to Melvin and Elnora Barber Reazin. Bob passed away Feb. 1, 2024, at his home in Leroy, Kan.

He attended schools in St. John, Kan., and the country school Green Valley through his elementary years. The family moved to Lyons, Kan., where he attended Lyons High School and graduated in 1960. Bob earned a degree in industrial arts education in 1964 from McPherson College.

Bob married Paula Jung, Aug. 5, 1962, at Lyons. He taught school and coached football at Roxbury, Grainfield and Pawnee Rock, Kan. He worked at Sears for a period of time before taking a job at the Wolf Creek Generating Station, where he worked for the remainder of his working career.

Bob spent a lot of his free time keeping active in the lives of family and friends. He frequently traveled to Idaho to be active in the lives of his brother-in-law, Steve Jung, and his family. At the age of 70, for the first time, he tried snow skiing with Steve and Becky in Idaho. Bob was an avid outdoorsman and during Steve’s early Boy Scout years took on the father role on father-son campouts, and canoed down the Arkansas River with Boy Scout Troop 164, of Lyons.

Bob loved watching his nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews participate in their school events and athletics. We never knew when he would show up at a ball game to cheer the team on.

In retirement, Bob stayed very active traveling the country working with “Eight-Days of Hope,” helping those in need. Bob was also highly involved in his church and Bible study and would give anybody the shirt off his back if he thought they needed it. He loved the Lord and was always willing to pray and lay hands on you for prayer. He was a true man of God.

Bob is survived by Paula; three sons, Rob, of Evans, Colo., and Ryan and Kyle, both of Denver, Colo.; a daughter, Kim (Mike) Turner, Wichita, Kan.; granddaughter, Amber (Rob) Mettlen and their children, Alexa and Ethan, Wichita; three brothers, Tom (Ruth), Lyons, Don (Deb), Ellinwood, Kan., and Ron, Aurora Colo.; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was proceeded in death by his parents.

A memorial service will be 1 p.m. Feb. 10 at the High Point Cowboy Church, 204 E. Fourth St., Colony, Kan.
