Robert Thomas MiresLittle Flock, AR, 1954 - 2022
Robert Thomas Mires, 68, of Little Flock, Ark., passed away suddenly on Monday, December 19, 2022. He was born on May 14, 1954, to Hugh Hendrix Mires and Doris Jean (Linthicum) Mires in Maryville, Mo.
Bob graduated from Maryville High School, Maryville, Mo., in 1972. He graduated from Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Mo., in 1976 with an AgriBusiness degree. He farmed in the Clearmont, Mo., area until marrying his wife of 37 years, Jeannette (Mulvania) Mires on April 27, 1985, in Council Bluffs, Iowa. After getting married they moved to Arkansas where they have made their home.
Bob worked for Wal-Mart for 30 years in the shoe department, as well as in the Home Office. After leaving Wal-Mart, he cared for his ailing father with true diligence and love. Later he drove a bus for Pea Ridge Schools for five years while also serving Boundless Grace Baptist as Minster of Helps which was a true calling for him.
Bob enjoyed gardening and his little "farm". He loved life, and nurturing something to grow to fulfill its purpose, whether his numerous seeds or his loved ones. He was full of joy and wisdom, and freely shared both. He loved people and would comment numerous times over the years to Jeannette, "We have a lot of good friends." More than anything he loved his family and would say how blessed he was. He was mostly right, but we were the ones who were tremendously blessed to have him.
Bob is preceded in death by his parents and two brothers. He is survived by his wife, Jeannette, son Benjamin (Tory) Mires of Rogers, Ark., daughter Emily (Neal) Brooks of Quincy, Mo., grandchildren, Helen Rose and Hugh Thomas Brooks and Brooklyn Harp. He is also survived by one brother and 4 sisters.
Visitation will be 5-7 p.m., on Friday, December 30 at Boundless Grace Baptist Church in Little Flock. Memorial service will be at 2 p.m., on Saturday, December 31 at Boundless Grace Baptist Church. Interment will be at Bentonville Cemetery in Bentonville, Ark.
