April 2, 1953 - July 30, 2018
Robert (Bob) James Nelson, age 65, passed away at his home in West Haven, Utah on Monday, July 30, 2018. Bob was born to Victor DeVern and Bessie Hill Nelson in Ogden, Utah on April 2, 1953. He grew up in Sunset, Utah and attended Clearfield High School, where he made many lifelong friends. Bob retired from Hill Air Force Base after working several years as a machinist. Bob was married to Lisa White and from this union they had a daughter, Heather. He and Lisa later divorced and Bob married his soulmate, Margie Butcher. Margie brought her two daughters, Becky and Charolette to their marriage and, along with Heather, Bob loved them as his own. Bob had a great love for animals and the outdoors. Though many of the best times of his life were spent camping, fishing and hunting in the Uintas and skiing at Snowbasin, it goes without saying that Margie, his girls, and his grandkids had his heart. Bob is survived by his loving wife Margie; daughters, Heather Nelson, Becky (Rob) Simonsen, Charolette (Andrew) Anderson; grandchildren, Brexton (Anne), Courtney (Trevor), Brooklyn, Kiara, Talon, Emberlee and Ryker; brother, Keith (Lanet) Nelson; sister, Nancy (Gary) Johnson; sister-in-law, Kristy Nelson; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Lyle Nelson. There will be a Celebration of Life for family and close friends on Saturday August 11, 2018 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at Sandridge Park located at 4400 South 2100 West, Roy.
