Robert Wylie, 1929 ~ 2012

Robert Q. Wylie, 82, passed away at his home on March 9, 2012.

Bob was born Sept. 26, 1929 to Chester and Leona Weber Wylie in Davenport, Iowa. He grew up in Davenport, graduating from high school. He joined the Navy during the Korean Conflict and served his country for two full terms.

After leaving the Navy, he went to trade school and became a plumber, where he worked for the union until he retired. He was involved in the foster child program in Iowa and cared for approximately 89 foster children in his time.

Bob moved to Moab, Utah, after he retired, and enjoyed being with the boys at the American Legion Hall and talking with his friends at the Rio.

He is survived by a daughter, Natlie Wilkerson, and a son, Christopher Wylie, both of Iowa; a granddaughter, Genevieve Migala; and numerous foster children.

At Bob’s request, cremation has taken place and no formal service is planned, but we would like you to join us on Friday, March 16 at 4 p.m. at the Rio for a toast to Bob.
