Robert Motsinger Obituary, Death – On this day in 2023, April 24th, Robert Eugene Motsinger, Jr. went unexpectedly suddenly. Age-wise, he was 61. On April 18, 1962, in Chillicothe, Missouri, he was born to Robert and Nancy Motsinger.
He was the only son of the couple. Robert Motsinger Sr.’s paternal grandparents, Carl and Theresa Ragusa, and maternal parents, Ruby and George Motsinger, predeceased him.
Pat Ragusa, his uncle, too passed away before he did. Mother Nancy Ragusa; sisters Annette Ragusa, Elaina Ragusa, Carla Ragusa, and Teresa Ragusa; uncle Joe Ragusa and aunts Nancy Ragusa and Ronna Ragusa; and cousins Mike and Teresa Ragusa and their children; Madelyn (Tallahassee, Florida), Olivia (Lawrence, Kansas), and Alexander (Columbia, Missouri). The many cousins, great-cousins, nieces, and nephews he had were very dear to him. Kids found his mischievous antics hilarious.
After graduating from Belton High School in 1980, Rob went on to play football professionally. He also participated in the school’s golf team and marching band. At CMSU, he became a member of Lambda Chi Alpha before graduating with a BS in Marketing in 1984.
Rob’s three loves in life were fast cars, water sports, and donuts. He shared wonderful times with all of his children, including trips on boats and kayaks, fishing trips, and seeing his children’s bands perform.
He was the group’s biggest cheerleader, and his enthusiasm and joy in them were contagious. He rarely missed the football games, golf tournaments, and band performances of his nieces, nephews, and relatives.
He was a hilarious storyteller and a devoted family man. He was pleasant to be around because of his wit and his affinity for the dance floor. His misfortune is unrecoverable.
