Robert L. “Bob” Revoir, beloved husband, father, grandpa, and friend passed away peacefully on October 10, 2023, at his home in Fairview, Utah surrounded by his loving family after a long and courageous battle with Parkinson’s disease and other health issues. He was born on July 5, 1938, to Joseph Edwin Revoir and Eddavein Ewell in Provo, Utah. He was raised by his father in Mapleton, Utah along with his siblings after his mother passed away when he was two years old. Bob learned a strong work ethic in his early years helping his father on the farm. At the young age of fourteen when his father passed away, this work ethic served him well as he worked in the orchards and farm fields of Mapleton; he learned early on how to survive. He married Sheron Jensen at a young age and had two sons, Edwin and Shane. They later divorced and he married Suzanne Turpin on July 6, 1984; together they had two sons, Cole and Austin. Bob worked various jobs throughout his life with the majority centered around livestock. He spent many years driving truck, hauling everything from watermelons to dynamite, and lastly hauling sheep for the local ranchers to feedlots in California and Colorado or to the deserts of Utah. He always wore a cowboy hat which was representative of his true love – he was a cowboy at heart and some of his best times were spent on the back of a horse herding cattle or chasing wild horses in the deserts of Nevada. In his later years he leased the Wheeler ranch in Milburn for over twenty years where he raised hay, sheep, and cows. He enjoyed this time farming as he was able to work alongside his boys and teach them his same work ethic. He started his own successful business from the ground up buying and selling old ewes. He enjoyed the relationships he built with the local ranchers and always tried to be honest in his business dealings with them. He believed in working hard and doing things the right and honest way. Daily work on the farm wasn’t done until the neighbors had also been checked on. Work was his enjoyment; he would much rather spend time with family working together than going on a vacation. Family was very important to him, and he loved each one of them unconditionally. He was never afraid to say, “I love you”. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He will be dearly missed by his sweetheart, Suzanne; children, Edwin (Brenda) Benjamin, Utah, Shane (Nicole) Spanish Fork, Utah, Cole (Emily) Fountain Green, Utah and Austin (Shay) Ephraim, Utah along with his 13 beloved grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. He is also survived by his in-laws, Maurice and Rodaleen Turpin of Fairview as well as many nieces, nephews, and in-laws. He is preceded in death by his parents, brothers; Lloyd (Shirlene), Larry (Ruth) and sister Mary Alice. As a family we are so appreciative of the hospice nurses and aides who so lovingly attended to him in his last days; they are truly angels on earth.
