Funeral services for Robert Sisk, 83, of Emory, were held on December 20, at Freedom Church of God in Emory. Bro. David Hamm officiated. Interment followed at Greenview Cemetery in Miller Grove. Tyler Jones, Nate Harper, Sam House, Rogelio Gallegos, Jason Jarrett, Gary Sisk and Gary Snowden served as pallbearers.
Mr. Sisk died on Thursday, December 16, 2021, at his home surrounded by his family. He was born on November 18, 1938, in Rains County to Bill and Maud Sisk. He married Dollie Mitchell in Rains County on December 26, 1959, and they shared 62 years of marriage together. He was a member of Freedom Church of God in Emory.
He was a devoted husband, father and Papa, and an avid hunter and fisherman. He enjoyed traveling with his wife, Dollie aka “Mickey”, and a group of lifelong friends to destinations all around the world. He was a natural entrepreneur, from pig farming to land development and road boring. His success left a legacy for his children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren to admire and strive for. He set a great example as a man, father and husband. When he talked, people listened. He was a devout Rains Wildcat fan, rarely missing a game or track meet during the last 30 years. He was no “fair weather fan.” Between his wife’s cooking and his grandkids, he had a hard time saying no.
Mr. Sisk is survived by his wife; children, Kimballa Kay Talkington and husband Bo, Heath Allan Sisk and wife Kristi; grandchildren, Kaley Jones and husband Tyler, Kara Harper and husband Nate, Torie Talkington, Kash Sisk and Kolt Sisk; great-grandchildren Kade, Kohen and Kolbie Harper, and Jett and Journey Jones.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and siblings, W.J. Sisk, Christine Ridenour, Betty Pendleton, Lynn Sisk and Nanny Jo McQueen.
