Bobby Joe "Bo" Harrell

January 23, 1962 ~ July 24, 2022 (age 60)


Bobby Joe “Bo” Harrell, age 60, of Manchester, Tennessee, passed away unexpectedly, on Sunday, July 24, 2022.

Born in McMinnville, Tennessee, on January 23, 1962, Bo devoted his life to being a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and truck driver. A workaholic, Bo was a semi-truck driver for over forty-three years, having been to every state of the United States, except for three. While working, Bo enjoyed listening to and singing all types of music. Of the Baptist faith, he was a member of Pioneer Community Baptist Church of McMinnville, Tennessee, since 2006.  In his spare time, he loved watching John Wayne movies, baseball and traveling. Bo will surely be missed by his loving family and friends.

Preceding him in death is his father, Bobby Gene Harrell; paternal grandparents, “E.M.” and Anna Harrell; and maternal grandparents, Jesse Lee and Novella Porter.

Survivors include his wife of sixteen years, Christina McBride-Harrell; mother, Jo Whiteaker; one son, Bobby Joe “B.J.” Harrell II; four daughters, Monica (Angell) Kroese, Brittany Harrell, Kaitlyn Scott and Kaylee Campbell; three brothers, James (Donna) Harrell, Larry Harrell and Patrick (Helen) Harrell; one step brother, Mike (Cindy) Whiteaker; two step sisters, Cheryl Whiteaker and Sandra Judkins; five grandchildren, Holland Kroese, Hudson Kroese, Rylan Turner, Cameron Sibert and Asher Sibert; and beloved dog, Duke.
