Robert Rodney Pyper 1945 - 2020 Robert Rodney Pyper AKA Bob Pyper, Uncle Bob, Cowboy Bob or “that guy that sings Johnny Cash better than Johnny Cash” took his last ride into the sunset on the morning of October 4th 2020. Bob was born to Julia and Joe Pyper and raised in the Salt Lake valley. He was one of seven children. Bob had many talents and hobbies. He loved boating, fishing, hunting and camping, playing music with his best buddies, painting, wood burning, riding motorcycles, hang gliding and riding horses. He was happiest when surrounded by friends and family enjoying life. Whether playing music and raising hell at Defa’s Dude Ranch in the uintas, or just jamming in his living room, he was always sought after by people who loved and respected him. He is known by many young and old as “Uncle Bob”, teaching all of the kids how to pick their noses and sharing great knowledge such as his famous reminder that “wherever you go there you are.” Always living life to the fullest, he probably had more adventures and exciting times than one could achieve in three lifetimes. He was prone to injury but that never really slowed him down. Contriving silly backyard stunts and activities that would usually end in destruction of property or bodily harm. He is survived by his brother Louie Kirsling, and sisters Katherine Wendell and Patrica Clark, also his children Bob, Mark, Monique and Justin, three granddaughters Jessica, Amanda and Shanee and one great grandson and three great granddaughters. He was preceded in death by his brothers Ben, Mike and Charley. He will be greatly missed by those who knew him. He was truly one of a kind and lived a storied life that will not soon be forgotten. A graveside service will be held for close friends and family at Mt.Olivet Cemetery 12 ;00 Noon, Monday October 12, 2020. Flowers and good stories about Bob are welcome. Please respect the families request to wear masks and practice safe social distancing.
