Robert Phillip Kreider “Robbie” was called home on November 13, 2021. He was born in Springfield, Missouri; son of James David and Gunda Kreider. The family lived and farmed in Nixa, Missouri. He attended Nixa schools from kindergarten though his senior year, graduating in 1980.
Robbie was an active member and officer of the Nixa FFA chapter. He was also an amazing trombone player with the NHS band and jazz band. He attended SMSU (MSU) studying horticulture. He was naturally gifted in all aspects of landscaping. His landscaping business was Hidden Valley Landscaping in Boaz, Missouri. He left his mark in this world by making hundreds and hundreds of homes and businesses beautiful. Also, by continuously making people laugh and smile.
Robbie had a huge personality and was always the life of the party. He could make you laugh even if you didn’t want to, up until his very last days. He was the type of man that would give you the shirt off his back if you were in need.
He was preceded in death by his father, James David Kreider, his mother, Gunda Kreider and his son JD Kreider.
He is survived by his beautiful daughter Kristie, his granddaughter Marcella, his grandson Logan, brother David and wife Jane, sister Barbie and husband George, and his sweet pup Peanut.
His ornery, big hearted ways will be greatly missed on this earth.
He is now Home, pain-free, with his Mom, dad, son JD, and many other loved sones living in Peace. In his memory, we would love for folks to plant a tree or give a contribution to the Arbor Day Foundation in Robbie’s memory.
A celebration of life has been scheduled for 11:00 am, Saturday, December 4, 2021 at Adams Funeral Home in Nixa. Burial of cremated remains will be held privately.
