Roy Steinmeyer

May 22, 1936 — September 20, 2020

Longtime Versailles resident Roy August Steinmeyer passed away Sunday, September 20, 2020, at the Golden Age Living Center in Stover.

Roy was born May 22, 1936, near Cole Camp at their home located at the Benton and Morgan county lines.  He was the only child of William J. and Mabel K. Kerksiek Steinmeyer.

On May 28, 1961, at the Christian Church in Versailles, Roy was united in marriage to Rosslyn Miller, who survives at their home.

Roy attended the Balke Prairie School before going to work on the family farm, which remained his true passion for the rest of his life.

As a young man he ran heavy equipment for JR Blackman. After that he worked for G & V Construction for many years, which led to a job with the Missouri Department of Transportation.  Roy spent many hours making sure the local highways remained in good shape; he retired as shed foreman after many years of employment.

Since farming was Roy’s true calling, when he wasn’t working for MODOT you would find him and his family doing custom farm work throughout Morgan County.

Roy was baptized June 7, 1936 and confirmed April 2, 1950 at the Christ Lutheran Church in Stover.  The confirmation verse chosen was Philippians 1:21. “For me to live is Christ, to die is gain.”  As an adult he joined the Stover United Methodist Church where he served as an usher and was a staple at the church bar-b-que, assisting with everything from preparing the chickens to delivering meals.

Anyone who knew Roy knew he never met a stranger; he loved to visit and was often found at the local coffee shop swapping stories with friends, old and new.

In addition to his wife of 59 years, he is survived by two children, Suzie and Tim Comstock of Tipton and Kurt and Stephanie Steinmeyer of Versailles; seven grandchildren and their spouses, Scott and Rori Comstock, Caroline and William Lok Newkirk, Kelly Comstock, Boone and Megan Steinmeyer, Cade Steinmeyer, Nathaniel Jones, Ezra Steinmeyer and Sophie Steinmeyer, nine great grandchildren, William Mace and Quinn Newkirk, Marion and Tyler Comstock, Delaney, Royce and Brynlee Steinmeyer and Ellie and TInley Steinmeyer, along with other relatives and many friends.

The family will receive friends from 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. at the Stover United Methodist Church with a service beginning at 3:00 p.m. Inurnment will be in the Stover Cemetery.  Memorial contributions are suggested to the Stover United Methodist General Fund.
