Robert Eugene Jameson Sr. was born December 6, 1930, the son of Clyde Elwood and Katherine (Funke) Jameson on a farm in Adair County near Greenfield, Iowa. He passed away on Tuesday, May 6, 2014, at the Adair County Memorial Hospital in Greenfield where he was lovingly cared for in his final days by his family.

“Bob” as he was familiarly known, was one of nine children. He attended Lee No. 3 rural school and graduated from Greenfield High School in 1948. He was united in marriage to Delores Marie Ruch on June 2, 1949, in Des Moines, Iowa. They made their home in Greenfield for a short time then moved to a farm near Bridgewater until 1960 when they moved to Bridgewater. Bob worked as an electrician with his brother and then went to work at the elevator.

During these years they became parents of three children, Robert Jr. “Bobbie”, Vicki and Randall. In 1971, Bob and Delores purchased the elevator and operated it as Jameson Feed and Grain. They sold it in 1995. He was an honest businessman and a hard worker and was involved in community affairs when able. Bob was a devoted family man both to his immediate and extended family. One of his greatest pleasures was camping at the Iowa State Fair every year. As many of the family as possible would join him and Delores for a fun time. His family will miss his yearly gift of homemade jam.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Delores in 2005; son, Robert, Jr.; daughter-in-law, Bobbi; granddaughter, Sheri Metzger; and three brothers, Keith, Richard and Ronald Jameson.

He is survived by his son, Randall Jameson and wife Paula of Bridgewater; daughter, Vicki Eshelman and husband Jerry of Greenfield; daughter-in-law, Jeanne Jameson of Bridgewater; 11 grandchildren, Jodee O’Connor, Tonya Jameson, Misti Zimmerline, Jason Jameson, Erin Thompson, Bethany Thompson, Ami Christensen, Stacie Hull, Pam Long, Mark Eshelman and Chad Metzger; 26 great grandchildren; 1 great great granddaughter; three brothers, Marion Jameson and wife Margaret of Des Moines, Wayne Jameson of Fontanelle and Darrell Jameson and wife Alice of Greenfield; two sisters, Bonnie Stalder and husband Jim of Greenfield and Eileen Armstrong of Greenfield; a great number of nieces, nephews, and friends he made in his lifetime.
