Robert Easton

October 2, 1939 — June 15, 2023

Orem, Utah

Robert Ray Easton, 83, of Orem Utah passed away peacefully at his home on June 15, 2023 surrounded by family.

He was born October 2, 1939, in Beaver Utah, the second son of Robert Ray and Norma Jensen Easton. He married Catherine Madge Pearce on May 24,1962 in the St. George LDS temple. Together they had 7 children, 25 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. This posterity was his greatest source of joy in life.

Growing up in Beaver, Utah Robert had a cherished childhood with his brother and best friend Richard, hunting, riding horses and fishing at Puffer Lake. He was always busy and never balked at a hard day's work; a character trait that so deeply defined his life. From cleaning out fish hatchery ponds to changing the reels at the local movie theater, he worked from a young age and never stopped. After graduating from Beaver High School in 1957, Robert started college in Cedar City at the College of Southern Utah and then moved to the University of Utah before ultimately graduating from Utah State University in 1962 with a degree in Range Management. Upon graduation, he combined his love for the outdoors and his degree in range management by accepting a job with the United States Forest Service. Robert worked tirelessly in his chosen career for 41 years until his retirement in 2003. He received many accolades for his knowledge of the forest and his ability to bring people together in order to accomplish what needed to be done. Throughout his life, Robert loved horses. His career with the forest service allowed him to continue riding horses through the mountains and trails he enjoyed so much. He was loved and admired by all those with whom he worked.

Robert was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. His lifetime of loving service to others was demonstrated through the numerous callings he held, including serving as Bishop, bishopric counselor, high counselor, temple worker and numerous callings with the youth and the scouting program. He also loved sports and coached many teams. He served the members of his ward and stake in many ways and lived his life in a manner that always reflected the kind and righteous man that he was. He assisted the widowed, ministered to the sick and afflicted, spent countless hours with the youth and never passed up an opportunity to serve his family, neighbors, friends and anyone that needed him.

Robert is survived by his wife Madge, and 6 children: Kristen Lee Williams (Larry) of West Point Utah; Kari Lynn Keck (Dan) of Iona, Idaho; Lori Anne Christensen (Devin) of Inkom, Idaho; Lynette Fowler (Kip) of Pleasant Grove, Utah; Robert Jeff Easton (Jennifer) of Highland, Utah; Michael Ray Easton (Cindy) of Orem, Utah. Robert is also survived by his brother, Richard (Linda), Fort Meyers, Florida, 24 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents Ray and Norma, his infant daughter Jodi, grand daughter Tessa Marie Fowler and son-in-law Larry Williams.
