Rob Billion, age 58, of Osawatomie, Kansas entered eternal life on Saturday, May 11, 2024. He was a loving father, husband, and hard worker. He loved being with his family, and being outdoors.

 

Robert John Billion was born on September 5, 1965 to Donald and Linda (Albright) Billion in Wyandotte County, Kansas. Rob attended Garfield Elementary. He graduated from Wyandotte High School with the Class of 1984. Where he was a member of the Honor Choir.

 

While working at Jostens in Lenexa, Rob met his future wife, Shelly. On June 18, 1994, Rob married Shelly Katzer at St. Boniface Catholic Church in Scipio, Kansas.

Rob worked at A & M Products in Spring Hill, Kansas for 20 years before going to work at his current job at Kalmar, in Ottawa, Kansas.

 

In his free time Rob enjoyed watching Chiefs and Royals games. He loved watching tv shows about Bigfoot and other sci-fi topics. He also enjoyed attending the Kansas City Renaissance Festival.
