Farris N. Bilyeu

May 17, 1955 ~ March 14, 2019 (age 63)


Farris N. Bilyeu entered into his eternal life on March 14, 2019. He was known for being the hardest worker anyone knew, spending many years pouring concrete and cutting wood. When he wasn’t working, he was either hunting or fishing. Farris was the best Dad and PaPa, a great storyteller, rough and tough, but with a big heart and a friend to all.

Farris was born on May 17, 1955. He was the son of Glen and Mickey Sanders Bilyeu. He is survived by his daughter Sandy Yocum and her children, Denny Bilyeu and Lindsey Yocum, of Highlandville; son Jack Bilyeu (Karen) and their children Caleb and Josie Bilyeu of Kirbyville; significant-other Mary Berryhill of Taneyville and her children Brittany Fisher (Jordan) and their children Ebony, Bentley, and Titus Fisher of Branson, Reba Roberts (Cody) of Kissee Mills, and James Berryhill of Taneyville; brother Elzy Bilyeu (Vicky) of Spokane; sisters Linda Henderson (Bob) of Kimberling City, Glenda Sue Brown of Walnut Shade, Mary Bilyeu of Kirbyville, and Kay Argo (Arnold) of Florida. He is preceded in death by his parents; brother Tony Page; and sisters Barbara Carey and Mae Hassler.
