Jackie Glen Bilyeu was born on January 30th, 1975, in Springfield, Missouri. He graduated from Spokane High School. At an early age he began working in concrete and building homes. Jackie found a love for God and loved preaching the gospel. He spent many years ministering in prisons, preaching at funerals, weddings, and at church. His purpose in life was to tell people about Jesus in hopes that everyone would make it to heaven.
His beautiful life will be cherished and survived by his children Caleb Bilyeu, Josie Bilyeu, and their mother Karen (King) Bilyeu of Kirbyville, as well as his mom Janice Keithley of Spokane and sister Sandy Yocum of Highlandville, and a host of relatives and friends. On December 31st, 2021, Jackie was united in heaven with his dad Farris Bilyeu, his son Charles Glen, and grandparents Jack and Shirley Keithley, and Glen and Mickey Bilyeu.
Jackie was either pouring concrete, serving the Lord, or serving his family. If you knew Jackie you knew he loved reading the bible, hunting, fishing, spending time with family, and telling old stories and never leaving out any details because he remembered everything. When asking his son Caleb what Jack’s favorite bible verse is, he said he couldn’t pick just one he would probably have to pick a whole chapter. Jackie could make anyone laugh and was the most selfless and giving person you could meet. He had a way of saying the right thing at the right time to encourage anyone. He will be greatly missed by all who loved and knew him.
