Robert Boyd Hare (Bob), 76, passed away October 18, 2017 at his home in St. George, Utah. He was born on July 25, 1941 to Merlin (Mike) Arthur and Lorraine Hunter Hare in Fillmore, Utah. He grew up in a large and loving family in Fillmore, and was the oldest of 3 brothers and 7 sisters.

Bob attended school in Fillmore, and graduated from Millard High in 1959. He married Rae Ellen Barton in 1965 (later divorced) and together they raised 5 daughters and a son. In 1993 he married his eternal companion and sweetheart, Leslie Christiansen Erickson, and they have enjoyed a wonderful life together surrounded by love, faith, and family. With his marriage to Leslie, Bob received the additional gifts of another son and two daughters whom he loved as his own.

As a young man Bob served our country honorably as a member of the Utah National Guard. He had a deep love of his country and was active in his political party, serving as both a district and state delegate. He also worked for the Utah State Road Department as Chief of Party until the early 1970’s, when he went into business with his father and purchased Kessler Milling Company in Fillmore. Mike and Bob were well-known for their hard work and honest business dealings while they owned the mill. In the early 80s they made the decision to sell the business, and Bob began traveling to Delta to train for a position as an electrician for the new Intermountain Power Project, where he worked until his retirement. After retiring from IPP Bob and Leslie made their new home in St. George, Utah.

Bob loved the outdoors, and spent many weekends hunting, camping, and fishing with his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed taking his grandchildren on hikes and backpacking trips into the mountains he loved. He also was a truly gifted gardener, and always had the most beautiful vegetable garden and yard. Even after moving to Delta where the soil was a challenge for him, he found ways to grow wonderful things, and always enjoyed harvesting and sharing the vegetables he grew.

He was an active member of the LDS church, and served in many capacities including callings in the Bishopric, Elders Quorum Presidency, and as a Mission Leader. He loved the gospel, and never tired of learning and practicing the principles he held so dear.

Bob is survived by his loving wife Leslie, St. George, and his children Debra Robinson, LeeAnne (Blair) Maxfield, Sherri (Jeff) Jackson, Robert (Jennifer) Hare, Lori Allen, and Laci Hare.
