Robert was born Aug. 10, 1955 in West Covina, Calif., to John and Doris Sorensen Goodspeed. He lived in California until the family moved to Moab in the early 1960s.

He graduated from Grand County High School in 1973 and following high school took some college classes on mining. He worked in the uranium mining industry until it slowed down, and he later got into construction. He moved around, but Moab was his home base.

He is survived by his father, John C. “Jack” Goodspeed of Moab; two sons, Chase Goodspeed and Carl Miller, both of Wyoming; three brothers, Tyrone of Utah, Joe of Moab, and Phillip of Denver; three sisters, Janet Himmelberger of Tennessee, Sharon Scott of Moab and Christine Shupe of Montana; one grandchild; and numerous nephews and nieces.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Doris Couette, and one brother, Curtis Goodspeed.

At Robert’s request cremation has taken place and a private family service was held.
