Robert Sean ‘PeeWee’ Jester (05-11-2017)

Graveside services for Robert Sean “PeeWee” Jester,
51, of Laran were held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 7, 2017, at
Laran Cemetery with Bro. Buddy Boatright officiating.
Arrangements were under the direction of Farrar Funeral
Home in Farmerville.
Sean was born on Castle Air Force Base in Merced,
Calif. on December 2, 1965, to Bobby and Barbara Bryant
Jester and was the youngest son of four children. He
passed away unexpectedly on May 3, 2017. As a young boy,
he loved being in the woods and working alongside his
dad tearing down and rebuilding small engines. He often
followed the footsteps of others, sometimes not heading
down the right path.
Sean attended Spearsville High School making friendships
that lasted until the end of his years. Sean was a
carpenter by trade and took pride in his sheet rocking
skills as artwork. He loved spending time outdoors – fishing
and hunting – and would often work in the garden for
hours and was so proud of seeing the fruits of his labor.
Sean lived life to the fullest. He was a good-hearted person,
always willing to lend a helping hand despite his ailing
physical health. He was a high-spirited soul and wore
a smile, was cracking jokes or pulling pranks on someone.
He was a lifelong member of Mt. Olive Baptist Church.
He took pride in keeping the church house clean and
flowering bushes and shrubs trimmed. He loved music
of all kinds.
Sean was preceded in death by: His father, Bobby W.
Jester; paternal grandparents, Walter and Maggie Jester
of Texarkana, Texas.; maternal grandparents, J.C. and
Vinola Bryant of Laran; and an infant son, Derek Sean.
Left to cherish his memory is: His mother, Barbara
Jester; two brothers – Kevin Jester and Brian Jester and
wife Karen, all of Laran; one sister, Kecia Riddle and
husband, Scott of Chuckey, Tenn.; a daughter, Tara Jester
of Strong, Ark.; two sons – Ethan Jester of Ruston and
Michael Jester of Elizabethton, Tenn.; three grandchildren
– Kadence, Ava and Libby; several special nieces and
nephews; and a very special friend, Missy Strickland of
Johnson City, Tenn.
Visitation was held from 6-8 p.m. on May 6, 2017, at Mt.
Olive Baptist Church in Laran.
