There are condolences waiting approval on JOHN's Tribute wall

John Junior Breakbill, age 83, of Republic, Missouri, passed away to his Heavenly home on Saturday, October 20, 2018 on the Century farm where he was born and raised and spent most of his life. He was born on April 22, 1935, the son of Johnny and Opal (Rubison) Breakbill.

He was united in marriage to Doris Hendrickson on June 27, 1954. Their daughter Karen was born in December 1962.

Junior was saved at an early age and was attending Bible Baptist Church in Republic at the time of his death.

He owned and operated J.J. Propane business for many years. His lifelong passion was farming and raising cattle. He was happiest when he was behind the steering wheel of a tractor, cutting and baling hay. Junior spent many years as a volunteer firefighter with the West Republic Fire Department. He also maintained the Garoutte Cemetery in Republic.

Junior was very proud of his grandkids and great grandkids, and would never miss grandparent’s night at school, or one of their ballgames.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and his brothers, Harold and Leroy.

Junior is survived by his wife of 64 years, Doris; a daughter Karen and her husband John; a granddaughter, Jayme; a grandson, Justin; and his great grandchildren, Zachary and Haylee, who were the world to him and his sister, Edna Lee.
