Robert spent four years in the United States Navy at the Pensacola Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida where he was involved with the movie theater on base. He latter volunteered and served in the United States Air Force.

Anyone who knew Bob Mc Coy knew that he was one who knew air planes better than most folks, owning two planes up to his death. A V tail Beechcraft and a T-6 trainer.

If you wanted to talk to Bob, your conversation almost immediately was switched to airplanes.

People in Trenton were amazed when he could hear a plane taking off and tell you all about that engine just from the sound.

For the past three years Carolyn Brown, of Trenton, Mo and her husband would look after Bob because of his health

Bob spent the last five months in the Veterans Home in Cameron, Missouri

Bob is preceded in death by his mother, Vesper Maddy and Aunt, Vera Flood, both laid to rest in Bedford. Also, two cousins, Harold Hagan of Lake Wales, Florida and David Hagan of Tampa, Florida and many friends who have known Bob Mc Coy over the years
