Robert Patrick Benyo, age 48, of Lee’s Summit, Missouri, passed away on February 7, 2019 at home from medical complications. Friends may call during Rosary and Visitation to be held at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Lee’s Summit on Saturday, February 16 from 9:00 am to 10:00 am. A funeral Mass will follow at 10:00 am.

Robbie was born on February 12, 1970 in Great Falls, Montana. He attended St. Regis Catholic school where he was very proud of being a Boy Scout with Troop 98. At O’Hara High School (Class of ‘88) he explored his love of computers and always greeted his classmates with a kind hello and a big smile. He worked for 23 years at Longview Community College where he completed coursework towards an associate’s degree. Rob was a generous spirit, always giving whatever he could and helping neighbors and strangers alike. Despite numerous illnesses he stayed positive and put others first, and was referred to by many nurses as the nicest patient they had ever seen. Rob will be dearly missed by all who loved him.

He is survived by his mother, Patricia J. Benyo, and his siblings Teresa “Tracy” Kellett (fiancé Paget Alves), Cathy (Aaron) Hochanadel, and Michael (Nicole) Benyo. He was preceded in death by his younger brother Matthew B. Benyo. He is also survived by his father, Andrew (Peggy) Benyo, Jr., and his half siblings Katie Benyo and Andrew Benyo, III. He was also proud to be Uncle Rob to his nieces and nephews: Aidan, Ashton, Chloe and Sophia Hochanadel, Alexander Gibbs and Connor Benyo.

Robby you are such a kind soul. I hadn't seen you for a long time. One of my favorite memories with you was in high school and we had driver's ed together. Coach Esposito taught us how to drive boy did we have fun in that car!

As St. Regis Parishioners my family fondly remember Pat & her children, Robert was one of the nicest students that has

So sorry to hear of Robert's passing. I got to know him well when I worked at St. Joseph Medical Center. I truly enjoyed his kind and respectful demeanor and the positive attitude he always showed even when not feeling his best. He was always willing to lend a hand and pitch in to help with our evening group that regularly met.

Robert is a friendly and helpful person. He would encourage the people when he greeted them at the Long View Campus. He would endeavor to follow his immediate supervisor's instructions. He was a God fearing man and a Friend with out deception.

With the hope that with Jesus Christ who gives us the gift of Resurrection, his family and loved ones will again reunite with Robert, in a future glorious day. Since Jesus Christ makes it possible for all of us to have eternal families.

We rejoice with all of his family and friends who have crossed the veil and have received Robert with hugs and kisses to continue learning and growing in the Plan of Happiness. I'm sure that his quick thinking and rapid conversations will be filled with compassion and mercy for all who met him and are left behind in this mortal and probationary phase.

Our Deepest Condolences for the Benyo Family.

I first met Robert in 1999 as a student worker at Longview Community College. We talked about computer technology often. When I became a full time worker in 2005 I had the honor of seeing and talking to Robert almost everyday for seven years. He was the nicest person I ever met. Robert and I spent a lot of time in the Longview break room talking. He always had very positive things to say. I considered Robert a dear friend. I will cherish the memories I have of him. If more people were as genuine and as nice as Robert the world would be a better place. Thank you Robert.
