Obituary

Maurice Don Massie Sr., age 77, passed away Saturday, May 2, 2020, at Mercy Hospital South in St. Louis, Mo.

Don was born on March 26, 1943 in Bush, Il. a son of Eugene Ross and Nellie Ruth (Halleran) Massie. He was married on February 17, 1982 in Belleville, Il. to Nancy Ann Selby, who preceded him in death on June 8, 2019.

Don attended Dupo Community High School before going on to proudly serve his country in the United States Army. Don served six years in Field Artillery as a Rocket Crewman and two years as a Drill Instructor in the U.S. Army until being honorably discharged in May 1969.

Don was employed as a Locomotive Engineer for 18 years with the Missouri Pacific Railroad until his retirement.

He was a member of the Masonic Lodge and a 33rd degree of the Scottish Rite Freemason. Don had a strong faith and was a proud member of Immanuel Baptist Church in Jefferson City.

In his spare time, he loved to be outdoors hunting or fishing; but most of all, he enjoyed any time spent with family. Don also enjoyed trips to Kentucky. His fondest memories were the births of his three sons and watching them grow up. He will be remembered for his fun-loving personality and laughter.

Survivors include: three sons, Maurice Don Massie, Jr. of Ark., Morgan D. Massie of Houston, Tx., and Michael D. Massie of Austin, Tx.; three brothers, Ricky Massie (wife Mary) of East Carondelet, Il., Randall Massie of Dupo, Il. and Roger Massie (wife Cathy) of Waterloo, Il.; four sisters, Brenda Kempen of Valmeyer, Il., Cynthia Love (husband John) of Columbia, Il., Jeanne Massie of Columbia, Il., and Kathy Brooks (husband Bill) of Belleville, Il.; 18 grandchildren; one sister-in-law, Katie Massie of Decatur, Il.; and many other loving family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Nancy; two brothers, Douglas Massie and Stephen Massie and his wife Kathy; and brother-in-law, Edward Kempen.

Graveside services and interment with military honors will be conducted at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 12, 2020 at Hawthorn Memorial Gardens with the Reverend Shane Crum officiating. The general public is welcome to attend the services while following social distancing guidelines. A recording of his graveside service will be placed on his memorial page on the funeral home website for anyone that was not able to attend.
