Annamariea Gay. He married Valarie Pryanovich on Nov. 11, 1978.

freedom and control of being a business owner, but his true passion was

a decades long love of fishing and hunting, which he shared with friends

maintain his connection to the backcountry of the Intermountain West.

When at home, he enjoyed gardening, and helped maintain a large and

beautiful garden.

Robert is survived by his wife Valarie, children Lee (Kelsey), Zach and

Nikki (Kaylen). Grandchildren Diesel, Mia, and Matty, his father Dr. Youngblood,
