Bobby Baldwin

Robert Luther “Bobby” Baldwin, Jr., age 60, of Joplin, passed away on Wednesday, June 15, 2022 at his home with family at his side.

Bobby was born August 29, 1961 in Baxter Springs, Kansas, son of the late Robert Luther and Rachel Baldwin.  He grew up in Joplin and attended Joplin Schools before graduating from Seneca High School.  He worked in landscaping most of his life, and held a high reputation in that field.  He loved the outdoors, whether fishing or hunting, and had an arrowhead collection that rivaled any.  He was very outgoing, and never met a stranger.  He will be greatly missed by many.

He is survived by his children, Robert D. Baldwin of Joplin, Bryan Baldwin and wife Katy of Joplin, and Kristina Nelson and husband August also of Joplin; 11 grandchildren and one great-grandchild; sisters, Joyce Hunt and husband Wayne of Joplin, Anita Crafford of Springfield, MO, and John “Charlie” Baldwin and wife Jennifer of Joplin; several nieces and nephews.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, July 9, 2022 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the family home, 4196 Greenwood Dr., Joplin, MO 64804.
