Bobby Bruce Kerns

July 26, 1958 — June 8, 2024

Balko, Ok

Bobby Kerns was born on July 26, 1958 to Benny and Avis Kerns. He was a good baby with cheeks so fat they sat on his shoulders.  He loved to listen to music and would bob his head to the beat.

Growing up he was a homebody, but loved to stay with his Grandma Shockley.  Later when he was grown and working in Beaver, he ate lunch with Grandma Shockley and they would listen to Paul Harvey on the radio together.

Bob attended Balko school from first grade through his senior year, graduating with the Class of 1976.   He spent his entire life in the Balko community.  He had a good sense of humor and entertained everyone with his stories and wit.  He had many good friends who knew that he had a deep knowledge of the Bible and enjoyed having in depth, meaningful conversations about life.

Bob’s greatest joys were his daughters, Amanda and Keely, who were the lights of his life. His girls and his mother were the most important priorities. He was a wonderful son, dad, brother, and uncle.

Bob was an avid reader and had knowledge of many varied subjects.  He was handy and could figure out how to fix anything.  He enjoyed hunting arrowheads, metal detecting, woodworking, golf and had recently started raising cattle.

He was preceded in death by this father Benny Kerns; brother Danny Kerns; daughter Amanda Mosburg; grandmother Alice Shockley; grandparents Garrel and Osa Kerns; Aunt and Uncle Dee and Roberta Edwards; and Uncle H.D. Berry.

Bob passed in Perryton Hospital on June 8, 2024.

Bob is survived by his mother Avis Kerns of Balko; daughter Keely Kerns of Wichita Ks; sister Brenda Johnson of Laverne Ok; grandchildren Ryleigh and Rawlin Mosburg.   He also leaves behind nephew Derek Smith (Lindsay Beaty) and great nephews, Kellen and Kash Smith of Edmond Ok; and Aunt Rosemarie Berry of Laverne Ok, along with a host of cousins.

Bob will be deeply missed but forever remembered by his family and friends.
