McMinnville native and Manchester resident Bobby Joe “Bo” Harrell, age 60, was born January 23, 1962, and passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, July 24.
Bo devoted his life to being a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and truck driver. A workaholic, Bo was a semi-truck driver for over 43 years, having been to every state of the United States, except for three. While working, Bo enjoyed listening to and singing all types of music. Of the Baptist faith, he was a member of Pioneer Community Baptist Church of McMinnville since 2006. In his spare time, he loved watching John Wayne movies, baseball and traveling. Bo will surely be missed by his loving family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his father Bobby Gene Harrell, paternal grandparents “E.M.” and Anna Harrell, and maternal grandparents Jesse Lee and Novella Porter.
Bo is survived by his wife of 16 years Christina McBride-Harrell, mother Jo Whiteaker, son Bobby Joe “B.J.” Harrell II, daughters Monica (Angell) Kroese, Brittany Harrell, Kaitlyn Scott and Kaylee Campbell, brothers James (Donna) Harrell, Larry Harrell and Patrick (Helen) Harrell, step brother Mike (Cindy) Whiteaker, step sisters Cheryl Whiteaker and Sandra Judkins, grandchildren Holland Kroese, Hudson Kroese, Rylan Turner, Cameron Sibert and Ashen Sibert, and beloved dog Duke.
Visitation will be held at Coffee County Funeral Chapel on Tuesday, July 26, from 5 to 8 p.m.
