Dec 3rd, 1942 - Jun 26th, 2020

A Celebration of Life Ceremony will begin at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 2, 2020, at Dillman Cemetery near Sailor Springs. 


   Robert 'Bob' D. Frye, age 77, of Sainte Marie, Illinois, passed away early Friday morning, June 26, 2020, at his home.

   He was born December 3, 1942, in Louisville, Illinois, the son of Glenn Woodrow and Laura Fronenda (Barbee) Frye. 

   Bob’s positive and encouraging spirit will be remembered fondly by his family and friends who were captivated by his happiness and joy.  He was completely devoted to his wife, Tammy, and together they operated Olde World Reflections, an international manufacturer of Christmas collectibles.  Their annual Christmas open house was an event that Bob looked forward to each year.  He attended the Highland Church of Christ in Robinson.

   He is survived by his wife, Tammy Bailey of Sainte Marie; his children, John Robert, Crystal Ann, and Brad Alan; several grandchildren; a great-grandchild; and a brother: Joe.

   He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Sue.

   A Celebration of Life Ceremony will begin at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 2, 2020, at Dillman Cemetery near Sailor Springs.  Memorial donations are suggested to the family and will be accepted through the funeral home.  Frank & Bright Funeral Home in Flora assisted the family with arrangements.  To share a condolence or memory, visit:

Thinking of you Tammy. So sorry for your loss of Bob. He was a good neighbor and so talented to always do what you wanted (in your home, making Santas and Snowmen, and other carpenter projects). I will miss talking to him on his golf cart varmit trips. When I would ask him how he was, he would always say, "If I was any better I couldn't stand it!"
