Robert Neal Jeffrey, passed away on Saturday, August 27, 2022, in Conway, Ark., at the age of 60. Robert was born on December 11, 1961, in Little Rock to Bobby and Helen Jeffrey. Robert was a beloved father and husband, a history fanatic, and the funniest man you could ever meet. Robert was a public defender for Faulkner County who loved watching football, listening to Ice Ice Baby, and eating whatever wonderful meal his wife prepared for him. He was preceded in death by his mother, Helen (Herring) Jeffrey, and his father, Bobby Gene Jeffrey. Surviving family include: his wife, Debbie (Castleberry) Jeffrey of Conway; his children, Sarah (Jeffrey) Attwood of Little Rock and Harry Jeffrey of Little Rock; and two brothers, John David Jeffrey of Heber Springs and William Douglass Jeffrey of Atlanta Georgia; one son-in-law, Tanner Shelby Attwood and one daughter-in-law, Aubree Lynn Seibert-Jeffrey. Robert graduated from Fairview Highschool, then from Southern Arkansas University, achieving a bachelor's degree in political science. After those four years, Robert attended law school at the University of Arkansas where he received his law degree and became a public defender. After several years of work, Robert met his wife, Debbie (Castleberry) Jeffrey at the Fordyce courthouse. They built a home and a family in Camden Arkansas, welcoming two wonderful children into the world. Robert served in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 2003-2009 where he was able to do what he loved; serve the people of Arkansas. Robert was an active member of Woodland Heights Baptist Church of Conway, Arkansas, where he was surrounded by constant love and fellowships from the community. Robert also loved history and was able to answer any history question you might have wanted to know (or not wanted to know). He was and will always be an amazing father and even better husband. He loved endlessly and was someone those around him could always count on to give support and great advice. He always knew what to say, when to say it, or when not to say anything at all. Visitation will be on Wednesday, August 31, from 6-8 p.m., at Roller-McNutt Funeral Home, Conway. Funeral service will be held at the same location on Thursday, September 1, at 10 a.m., with burial immediately following in Oak Grove Cemetery.
