Robert S Kohler, loved by everyone as Bob, was born to Eva and Elmer Kohler on August 2, 1946 in the Heber City, Utah, hospital. His family lived in a historic pot rock home in Midway. Bob had two older sisters and one younger brother. He had fond memories of playing on the hillside at the base of the majestic mountains of his father’s 50-acre farm, where he watched squirrels, birds, raccoons, and deer roam. The Kohlers were dairy farmers with 30 cows and plenty of chores to share as they raised hay and other crops required to maintain a healthy herd of productive milk cows.

Bob’s first paying job was at the Homestead Resort, just a half mile from his home. He worked maintaining the grounds for 65 cents per hour eventually being promoted to kitchen help and life guarding in the summertime. He graduated from Wasatch High School in 1964. He was called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and joyfully served from 1965-1967 in the North Island of New Zealand. He loved the people, the country, and the culture of the islanders as he faithfully served.

Upon return from his mission, Bob had a personal goal: “Make a date in ’68. Make her mine in ‘69”. And so he did. He met Linda Thompson at BYU. She thought Bob was even cooler than his brand new 1967 Camaro Super Sport. They married on May 29th, 1969, in the Logan Temple. They have loved, cherished, and cared for one another for 50 years. Together, they raised four boys and two girls and now are blessed with 23 grandchildren to adore and brag about.

Dad spent most of his career working for John Deere in sales and service. He was fiercely brand loyal, and the family colors unofficially became green and yellow. He also taught Vocational Education at the Youth Services Center for several years.

Dad treasured time shared with his family and took advantage of those precious moments to teach important life lessons that helped sculpt the character and values of his children. He enjoyed fishing, following PBR, and watching Hallmark movies and mysteries with his sweetheart. Owing to his love of talking with and listening to others, Bob was an avid Ham Radio operator.

Dad and Mom both have a deep commitment to and abiding faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. They have always loved and served joyfully in His church.

Dad was blessed here on earth to be surrounded by loving family, as a child, as a father, and as a grandpa. He was a genuine friend and valued the time spent connecting with others.

Bob Kohler faced his mortal life with faith, service, conviction, hard work, and a smile. He will be missed and remembered by many, but most of all by his sweetheart and family whose lives were blessed by his love.

We are so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I have many fond memories of Bob when were kids. He and Paul tried to teach me about life on a farm. Bob always had such a peaceful spirit. We have lost track of many of the family while moving around and would love to reconnect. Kim Witt

Aunt Linda and family, I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to attend the services for Uncle Bob. What a wonderful tribute the kids gave to their father. Thank you for sharing your memories. His life was an example of selflessness and I came away wanting to be a better person, to love more fully, and to serve joyfully. May God continue to bless and comfort you~

Bob Kohler: You were, arguably, the dearest, sweetest, kindest, most gentle man I ever knew. Of course you picked a kindred spirit in lovely and loving Linda! What a wonderful ride you two had together in this life. Linda, I hope you know my heart swells with gratitude for having known the two of you. I share in your grief over the loss of your dear Bob. The veil is thin for those who love, and grief is the price we pay for having loved. Karyn
