TIPPAH COUNTY - TIPPAH COUNTY - TIPPAH COUNTY - Bobby O'neal Devore, 89, resident of Ripley, passed away Friday, October 14, 2022 at Diversicare Health and Rehabilitation Center following an extended illness.
Funeral Services honoring the life of Mr. Devore will be at 3PM Sunday, October 16, 2022 at Mt Hebron Baptist Church in Walnut with Bro. Rick Cisowski officiating. Burial will follow in the Mt. Hebron Church Cemetery.
Mr. Devore was born on December 22, 1932 in Shelby County, TN, the son of the late Cisroe Lloyd and Cathryn Anthony Devore. He received his education in the Hamilton Public School System, worked as a skilled farmer and was a valued employee for the Benchcraft Corporation for over 20 years.
A Christian and faithful member of Mt. Hebron Baptist Church, Mr. Devore lived a simple but fulfilled life that included hunting in his earlier years, but nothing ever compared for his true passion of gardening.
No matter what juncture or occasion, he always took great pleasure in gardening. The vegetables Mr. Devore grew were plentiful and far too numerous to name each specific one but everyone that had the pleasure of knowing him knew he was the best gardener around.
Visitation will be from 1:30PM until 3 PM Sunday, October 16 at Mt Hebron Baptist Church.
Those left to cherish memories include one daughter, Patricia Bell of Walnut, two sons, Mike Devore (Shelly) of Walnut, Calvin Devore (Pam) of Tiplersville, two sisters, seven brothers, six grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.
