Roger Stanley Short, 70, went to be with his Lord on February 24, 2021. Roger was born in Joplin, MO to Raymond and Maxine Short. Roger was a long time resident of the Joplin area, but moved to Sarcoxie, MO about 10 years ago. Roger worked for Hiland Dairy for 30 years and has been retired for 10 years. Roger married Mary Ackerson, of Joplin, MO, in Joplin on June 5, 1971.

Roger enjoyed gardening, cooking, collecting classic movies, collecting anything related to 'The Christmas Story' movie, and his new hobbies included metal detecting and coin collecting. He also enjoyed watching You-Tube.

Roger taught a Sunday school class at Reeds Baptist Church in Reeds, MO. He loved his Church and the people there. At Halloween, he really loved giving hay rides to everyone.

Roger had been involved in horse shows, he was really good at knowing a champion by looking at them. He was involved in the kids sports, and even coached for awhile. He enjoyed taking trips to the coast for some barrier island camping and research.

Preceding him in death were his parents, his brothers Scott Short and Ronald Short.

Survivors include his wife Mary Short, his brothers Mike and his wife Diana, and Douglas Short. He had four children that he claimed were really the "milk mans" kids- Beth and her husband Jason Holcomb, Katie and her husband Jeremy Booth, Molly Bailey, and Luke and his wife Sasha Short. Grandchildren include Briley and her husband Lane Elliott, Hayley Holcomb, George Holcomb, Alex Holcomb, Cadence and her husband Chris Sullivan, Simon Booth, Hope Patterson, Callie Patterson, Trevor Patterson, Roger Clark, Natalie Clark, Chris Bailey, and Joseph Bailey and two great grandkids Dakota and Anakin.

The Celebration of Life services will be held Saturday, February 27th, between 2 - 4pm at Reed's Baptist Church in Reeds, MO.

Family has requested that instead of flowers, please donate to Gideon Bibles.
