Robert Ward McInnis

May 11, 1978 — April 13, 2021

On April 13, 2021 Robert McInnis (age 42) passed away at home in Madison, Al.,  following a 5 year brave and tenacious fight with cancer.  

Robert was born on May 11, 1978 in Jackson, MS to Carolyn Elizabeth (McInnis) Coile and Robert Louis McInnis.  He is survived by his wife of 14 years, Julie Kathryn McInnis; daughters Georgia Grace (10), Marley Elizabeth (8) and Logan Kathryn (5) all of Madison, Al.  He is also survived by mother Carolyn Coile and sister Jennifer Keen of Brandon, Ms.  He was preceded in death by father Robert Ward McInnis.

Robert was a dedicated 18 year employee of Dynetics, during much of which he was a project manager on various Apache Helicopter engineering projects.  He was a proud alumni of Mississippi State University earning a B.S. degree in electrical engineering and M.S. in industrial engineering.  He was the first in his immediate family to graduate from college.  Throughout his academic and work programs he prided himself in his hard work ethic and exemplary performance.

He was a man of few words but they were always meaningful or quick-witted. He was also known as the ultimate DIY guy--he could fix or build almost anything.

Robert enjoyed weekends at the lake, boating, wake-boarding, and tubing with his girls.  He was a dedicated family man and beloved father creating many traditions and memories with his girls.  At dinnertime, his preferred meal was never in doubt...rib-eye steak and a cold Bud Light.

Robert was a Good man, a Good father and Good husband.  His passing is much too soon.  He is going to be missed by many family and friends.  

A memorial service will be held at Asbury United Methodist Church, Madison, AL. at 1 pm on April 17, 2021.  A graveside service will be held at the family farm in Mississippi at a future date.
