Charles “Tony” Musgrave was born April 13, 1947 in Evanston, IL to Charles B. and Mary C. Musgrave (Wenell). He is survived by his wife Robbin Musgrave (Scharhag), two sons Brady (Amy) Musgrave of Springfield, MO. and Chris (Jenny) Musgrave of Parkville, MO., four grandchildren Sydney, Will, Graham and Sam Musgrave, sister Diane Lee of Edwardsville, IL., and countless friends from the neighborhood, church and the vineyard.
Tony spent his childhood and adolescent years in Texas, before attending the University of Missouri on a Navy ROTC scholarship to study History. It was there on a blind date that he met his life-long love, Robbin, whom he married in 1969. That same year he was called to active duty in Vietnam, where he served until 1971. Upon returning, he resumed college at UMKC and graduated with a degree in Microbiology. Tony's professional career spanned various occupations but the majority was spent working for and retiring from the City of Kansas City, Missouri.
Tony had many passions in life, but religion and his devout belief in God was what led him most. He received his Parish Ministries Associate certification and worked closely with the Central States Synod of the ELCA. Other interests included reading, traveling, theater, music, wine, distillation, his daily Jeopardy and his loyal companion, Wilson (basset hound).
Tony died on December 17, 2020 at the age of 73, with his wife of 51 years Robbin by his side.
