Robert Christopher Polson, 59, of Moberly, passed away on November 18, 2020 in Marceline. He was born on April 24, 1961 to Robert Kenneth Polson and Bertha Alice Hopkins Polson in Moberly and was a lifelong resident of Randolph County.
Robert attended Westran High School and was a member of the Pleasant Hill Baptist Church. On November 7, 1986 Robert married Debra Taylor in Moberly and the two just celebrated 34 years together.
Robert worked for A City Truck Sales in Armstrong before becoming self-employed. He was never afraid of hard work and made his living as a mechanic, hauling items for people and cutting wood. He enjoyed working with hands and helping people. When he found free time, Robert liked to work on his own cars. He was also a collector of toy cars and made a few model cars. He enjoyed camping and fishing when his health allowed, but mostly…he just loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.
Robert is preceded in death by his parents; his son, Christopher Epperly; his brother, James Polson and his sister, Alice Hollon.
