Marvin " Punky" Massey
Chapel Oaks Funeral Home Hiawatha
Robinson , KS

Marvin “Punky” Leo Massey, age 82, passed away surrounded by family on Thursday evening, the 25th of November 2021 in Hiawatha, KS. Husband, father, grandfather, & great-grandfather, Punky will be missed by all who loved & were loved by him.

Born on January 28th, 1939 in Goff, KS to Elmer “Boots” Massey & his wife Janie, Punky grew up with an unparalleled work ethic. He graduated from Robinson High School in Robinson, KS & went on to take college classes as well. He met his wife, Jo Ann (Schuetz) Massey in Falls City, NE at the movie theater where she worked. It was love at first sight for Punky when the gorgeous, stubborn girl behind the candy counter kicked him & his friends out of the movie “for being too rowdy.” Punky & Jo Ann were joined in marriage on December 28th, 1958 & loved each other fiercely for 62 years.

Punky, a member of the National Guard, was a pillar in the community of Robinson, KS, where he worked at the co-op for 42 years. He also served as a member of the city council, & even held a position as a town cop for a time. Perhaps his best known service to the people of Robinson were his 30 years as part of the volunteer fire department, including an extended period of service as the fire chief. His commitment to family, friends, & community will never be forgotten.

Punky is survived by his loving wife, Jo Ann, & their four children:
Marvin “Peanut” Massey, his wife Tereta, & their son & grandson.
Sandy (Massey) Collins, her husband Kevin, their son, two daughters, & ten grandchildren.
Beth (Massey) Hall, her husband Mark, & her son.
Eric Berry-Massey & his spouse, Dani.

Though the family is sad to lose the man they cherished, they take comfort in the fact that Punky is whole again, no longer in pain, & safe in the arms of Jesus.

Family & friends are invited to celebrate Punky’s life at 2 p.m. Wednesday, December 1, at Chapel Oaks Funeral Home in Hiawatha.  Chaplin Tim Champ, Freedom Hospice, will officiate.  Interment will follow at Rose Hill Cemetery, Robinson.

Friends may call at the funeral home after 10 a.m. Tuesday.  The family will meet with friends one hour prior to service.
