-Grab a bubble and a fly and let’s go rubba-dubbin-
Robert (Bobbi) Lee Ogden must have heard the fishing was better in heaven, so he left this world on March 15, 2022.
Bob was born in Tooele, UT on August 23, 1937, to Klar (Kelly) and Helen Ogden. Helen passed away when Bob was about twelve years old. Later, Klar married Norlyne St. Clair, who became a wonderful and caring stepmother to Bob and his older brother Bert. He was married to Sharon White and became a loving father to his first two children, Kelly and Erik. Later, he met and married Susan L. Stevens, and he became a devoted father to his daughter Bobbi and an amazing second father to Brady and Travis.
Throughout his life, Bob worked in several different occupations. In his younger years, he served his country in the United States Air Force as a communications specialist. He was stationed in Florida, New Mexico, and Goose Bay, Labrador. He worked several years as a police officer in Tooele, UT, and later for many years as an equipment manager for Tooele Army Depot. Eventually, he retired from the depot and became a full-time dad to his youngest daughter.
Bob had many hobbies and talents. He was an excellent pool, golf, and baseball player. He coached most of his son Erik’s baseball teams. Bob was a great singer and loved to dance and play the guitar. He also enjoyed boating, fixing up old boats, and watching western movies at a very loud volume. He was a great cook and loved cooking meals in a Dutch oven. Most of all, he loved camping and fishing at Fish Lake with his family.
Everyone that knew Bob knew that he was caring, loving, and hilarious. He always had some silly joke or funny saying that would have people bursting out loud with laughter. He had a big heart and loved animals, especially dogs. He was a father, husband, uncle, and grandfather to look up to.
Bob is survived by his wife, Susan; sons Erik of Ogden, UT; Travis (Jill) of Salt Lake, UT; Brady (Michelle) of Oakley, UT; daughters Kelly (Greiss) of West Jordan, UT; and Bobbi (Justin) of Murray, UT; twelve grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents, stepmother Norlyne, and his brother Bert.
