Robert "Bobby" Channell

June 5, 1951 ~ November 13, 2022 (age 71)


Robert Earl Channell, of Covington, TN, passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his family on November 13th, 2022.  Robert was known as "Bobby" to his family and friends.  He was married to the love of his life, Libby, for 45 years.  Bobby loved being a trucker.  He did this for 35 years, until he retired.  You could bet your bottom dollar that everyday you would find Bobby playing his normal game of solitaire.  This simple game of cards brought him lots of laughs and he was always guaranteed to win it.  

Bobby is preceded in death by his parents Charles Earl and Betty Ruth Channell.  He leaves behind his wife, Libby, son Jeremy Channell (Elisha) of Covington, TN, daughter Julie Ables (Brad) of Covington, TN, four grandsons; Colin Haynes, Jack Channell, Charlie Ables, & Sam Ables, two brothers; Jerol Channell & Jeff Channell, and two sisters; Dianne Neighbors & Mary Laine Glass.  

The visitation will be held on November 16th, 2022 from 11:00am-1:00pm, with services to begin at 1:00pm in the chapel at Maley-Yarbrough.  The internment will follow at Covington Memorial Gardens.
