Roy E. Tiefenbrunn Obituary

Roy E. Tiefenbrunn, 89, of Sullivan, MO, passed away peacefully, Saturday, July 6, 2024 at Meramec Nursing Center, Sullivan. Born on April 13, 1935, to Roy Sr. and Marie (Bacon) Tiefenbrunn on the family place in Bourbon, Missouri. Roy's life was a testament to his friendly nature, kind spirit, and passionate heart.


Roy’s formative years were spent on the very land that shaped his character. He attended a country school nearby, fostering within him a love for his community and the values of hard work and camaraderie. Roy's educational journey culminated with his graduation from Sullivan High School in 1954, a time when he was already displaying the friendly and kind nature that would become his hallmark.


Roy’s professional life was a testament to his dedication and passion. Soon after his schooling, he began a lifelong career with the Ramsey Corporation, where his leadership and work ethic saw him rise to the position of Plant Engineer. Roy retired in 1996, leaving behind a legacy of commitment and excellence that continued to inspire his colleagues long after his departure.


On March 16, 1956, Roy married the love of his life, Judith Martin, at Temple Baptist Church. Their union was blessed with four children: Roy Martin "Marty," Tracy Jo, Matthew John, and Casey Kathleen. Roy was the epitome of a family man, and nothing brought him more joy than the time he spent with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.


Beyond his professional endeavors, Roy was a true ambassador for the community of Sullivan and the surrounding areas. His unwavering support for local school sports and activities showcased his belief in the power of youth and education. He was an involved member of the Temple Baptist Church, where his faith and dedication to service were an inspiration to all.


Roy's interests painted a picture of a man who took joy in the simple pleasures of life. He found solace and satisfaction in tending to his yard, ensuring it was a space of beauty and tranquility. Roy was also the ultimate people person; he loved getting to know others, visiting with friends, and was an authentic conversationalist who could engage on any topic with genuine interest and warmth.


Those who knew Roy would describe him as a man of friendly disposition, kind-heartedness, and passionate about his beliefs. His authentic nature was a beacon for many, drawing people toward him with his easy smile and open heart. Above all, Roy cherished his wife, Judy, and the years they spent together, which were filled with love, laughter, and shared memories.


Roy's legacy is one of warmth and connection. He had a rare ability to make every person he met feel valued and heard, and his absence will be profoundly felt by the many lives he touched. His passion for life, his community, and his family will continue to be celebrated by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
