He was living in Glover, Mo. when he died Jan. 8, 1934 with all 6 of his children at his bedside. Jasper's obituary:
"The death angel came and claimed for its own, Jasper Allen Colyott, of Glover, Mo., Monday eve at 3:25 o'clock. He suffered very much for nine days, from pneumonia before death came to his release. He was 72 years old and would have been 73 on Feb. 14. But God saw fit to take him on Jan. 8, 1934. All of his children were at his bedside when he breathed his last. He asked his son Gentry to lift him up, and then he asked to be laid down, then a few breaths and he was gone.
"It was so hard to give dear father up, but we all hope to meet him in the Sweet Bye and Bye. He held to his daughter Jocie's hand two days before he left and said: 'O, Babe, you are so faithful in staying with me,' then he looked up and [said] 'Oh, my Savior I'll meet.'
"Poor, Good Daddy is gone but not forgotten or ever will be by his children. He belonged to the United Baptist Church at Big Creek and was a faithful member until death. We all wish to thank the people for sitting up with him at night, especially the nearby neighbors who were so good to him. We wish to thank Mr. Ancel White, the undertaker, for his kind[ness] and again to thank Leo Asher, the minister, who preached his funeral and spoke consoling words to us in this dark hour of sorrow.
"He was laid to rest by the side of his dear wife, Mrs. Cordelia Colyott who passed away 5 years ago last August.
"He leaves three sons and three daughters. Also one brother and a host of friends and relatives, and seventeen grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. His sons are G.J. and M.T. Colyott of Glover and W.C. Colyott of Lesterville. His daughters are Mrs. Violet Miller, Lesterville, Mrs. Geo. Ebert, Glover, and Mrs. Sam Jordan, Sabula. His brother is Geo. Colyott of Glover.
Tears from my eyes flowing,
Deep sorrow shades my brow
Cold in the grave he's sleeping,
I have no daddy now.
His youngest daughter,
Mrs. Jocie Jordan "
