Bobby Joe McVay

December 25, 1935 -

Bobby Joe McVay was born Dec. 25, 1935 in Cushing, Okla. He passed away Sept. 26, 2018 at his home in Edmond, Okla. Bob moved to Edmond at an early age with his parents, William and Virginia Cobb. It's here that he met the love of his life, Darlene Brown. Together they had two children, Larry Joe and Lori Jan. He made it a priority to be involved in their lives and attended as many dance recitals and sporting events as possible.
Early in his career, he was employed at Roberson Steel but eventually moved on, and retired from WW Steel. He loved to hunt, fish, play dominoes and spend time with his family. He was also a gifted story teller who spared no detail. You didn't dare try to rush the ending to any story that PePaw was telling.
Bob took great pride in raising his family and he loved spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was especially fond of his great-granddaughter Lauren, who hung on his every word and made him feel special and loved.
Bob was preceded in death by his wife, Darlene; parents, William and Virginia Cobb; and brothers, Wilbur McVay and Danny Cobb.
He is survived by his son, Larry Joe McVay and his wife, Debbie of Blanchard, Okla.; daughter, Lori Jan (McVay) Mingo and husband, John Mingo of Houston, Texas; grandchildren, Brooke Smith, and husband, Lindsay of Tulsa, Okla., Bobby Joe McVay II, and his wife, Kelli of Andover, Kan., and Kristina Farrimond and husband, Patrick of Albuquerque, N.M.; great-grandchildren, Ainsley Smith, Marin Smith, Audrey Farrimond, Quin Farrimond, Lauren Horton, Chase Horton and Cash McVay. He is also survived by his beloved niece, Rachelle Ketchum, husband, Brent Ketchum, and their son, Dalton Ketchum. He also leaves behind extended family members, Ralph Lindsey, Mike Lindsey, Bobby, Cindi and Zane Lindsey, and Jerry Lindsey.
Bob "PePaw" will be very missed.
Funeral services will be 1 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1, 2018 at Matthews Funeral Home in Edmond followed by interment at Gracelawn Cemetery.
