JP Mabe

James Price “JP” Mabe age 44 passed away Sunday May 15, 2022, at his home in Ozark, Missouri.


JP was born on July 8, 1977, in Springfield, Missouri to Gary Sanders and Marilyn Jean Mabe.


JP was the life of any party. He enjoyed spending time with his friends and family. They would grill out, watch sports, and talk about cars. JP loved cars, the faster the better. JP also enjoyed bowling and watching other sports. He was happiest when he was able to spend time with his family and friends. He loved his family very much, and he had a heart of gold.


JP worked in the family business for many years. He worked at the Baldknobbers Restaurant and at the Baldknobbers Theatre. He enjoyed greeting the guests as they arrived and helping them find their seats. During the show, JP helped in the lighting department.


JP also had a love for animals, especially toy poodles. There was rarely a moment that he didn’t have a dog by his side. He had endless wit and will be missed by all who were blessed to know his love.


JP was preceded by his mother Marilyn Mabe, grandfather Jim Mabe and cousin Shane Mabe. He is survived by his father Gary Sanders, sister Tabitha Blaney and husband Adam, nieces and nephews Mason, Eliza, Lindy, Haddy, grandmother Katie Mabe, Uncle Tim Mabe and wife Patty, Aunt Sandra Kaser, cousins Brandon Mabe and wife Megan, Breanna Winburn and husband Derrick, beloved dog Charlie, as well as numerous loving extended family and great friends.

A memorial service for JP will be held at 2pm on Tuesday May 24, 2022 at Riverdale Baptist Church. Burial will follow at Highlandville Cemetery.  


Arrangements are under the direction of Adams Funeral Home, Nixa.
