Robert Scott Haaga, 70, of Salt Lake City, UT, passed away surrounded by his children on Thursday, July 1, 2021. Born April 11, 1951, at Hill Airforce Base, he was the son of Robert M. Haaga and Valene (Losee) Haaga.
Bob spent most of his childhood in Holladay, UT, the second of five children. This is where he started his lifelong love of music and played guitar in a rock band. He later taught himself to play the piano and would spend much of his free time playing at home. In fact, whenever his children couldn’t find him after church, the first place to look was the chapel because he liked playing the piano in there for the acoustics.
Bob gained his testimony in his early teen years and lived valiantly his entire life. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Idaho and Oregon. His life was filled with many trials, but despite them all, he never lost his faith in Christ and remained a true and faithful servant to the end.
Bob was sealed for time and all eternity to the love of his life and late wife, Vicki. They are survived by their five children, Brandon, Aaron, Jason, Cami, and Jonathan, who all take comfort in knowing that their parents are finally reunited. Bob was a very loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. He will be missed by his 18 grandchildren, 4 siblings, many nieces and nephews, and friends he made throughout his life.
Funeral services will be held on Monday, July 12, 2021 at 2:00 PM at Memorial Redwood Mortuary and Cemetery 6500 South Redwood Road, West Jordan, Utah 84123.

Interment will follow also at the same location.
Life Story Info
My heart is just heartbroken of the loss of my brother in law, Bobby. He was a kind, sweet, caring and the most positive person. Nothing ever brought him down, despite all of his trials. When Jeff and I were first married, we would double date a lot with Bobby and Vicki. We even took Disco lessons with them 😋 They we’re the cutest couple and when Vicki passed away, I know a big piece of Bobby’s heart went with her. Now they are together for eternity ❤️ I will miss Bobby and his happy smile. He was always so nice to my Parents and siblings, when we would get together for family parties. Always genuine and kind. My thoughts and prayers are with Brandon, Aaron, Jason, Cami and Jonathan and his grandchildren. Also his siblings, Cathy, Doug, Jeff and Bruce. Bobby is going to be missed greatly. We all loved you so much❣️
