Jon Alan Humphrey

Jon Alan Humphrey, 63. of Memphis, Missouri, passed away Saturday morning, July 3, 2021, at Macon, Missouri under hospice care.

The son of Loren “Elmo” and Helen Heddeshimier, Jon was born October 18, 1957 at Kirksville, Missouri.

Jon was raised on the family farm northwest of Memphis in a community called Brock. He helped take care of daily chores including feeding the animals, working in the garden and taking care of the yard.

He attended the Scotland County Schools graduating with the class of 1975.

Later he pursued a career of driving truck seeing a lot of pretty country driving over the open road and he farmed raising row crops as long as his health permitted.

On February 25, 1995 Jon married Annette Van Meter and they were blessed with one son, Dustin in 1997. Jon did everything for his family and was a good friend to many.

In his spare time he fished, hunted and explored the outdoors, and especially enjoyed hanging out with his family and friends.  You could count on him for help when he was asked.

Jon was preceded in death by his grandparents, parents, step-father-in-law, Delbert Hyde, cousins, Basil and Stanley Humphrey along with several close friends.

He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Annette, and his son Dustin, mother-in-law, Margaret Hyde, father-in-law, William Van Meter, several other family members and friends.
