Robert Arnold Hummel passed away February 14th with his sweetheart of 73 years and his children by his side. We are sure he was welcomed with open arms by family and friends who love him dearly as well.
Having 96 years of life under his belt there is so much that could be shared. He is the greatest man we know…
Bob loved his sweet wife Joyce and took such great care of her. He was forever serving her and his family. He was sharp as a tack. He is best known for his quick wit, sense of humor, and competitive nature.
He served our country in World War II in the Army from 1945-47. He loved our country and kept up with current affairs. He could talk any subject matter. He was well rounded in all aspects of life. Bob was employed as a purchasing agent for Granite School District and retired as the Director of Purchasing in 1987.
Bob loved life and lived it to the fullest. He spent much of his time with family and friends. They loved to gather and be together. He spent much time in his yard, working on house projects, and doing honey do’s. His favorite time was probably on the golf course, fishing/floating the Salt River, and games with friends and family.
He and his wife spent 25 years in St. George as snowbirds. Throughout his life he developed many lasting friendships.
He was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served faithfully in many callings. He was a great Scoutmaster and served as Bishop and on the High Council with many callings in between. He also served a mission at the St. George Historical sites with his wife, Joyce.
He is survived by the love of his life, Joyce; sons Craig (Gypsy) West Jordan, Richard (Tammy) West Point, daughters Diane Sayer (Phillip) Taylorsville, and Peggy Hoffman (Bob) Sandy. He has 18 grandchildren, 52 great-grandchildren with more to come.
Bob ended his days with enduring patience, loving kindness, and overflowing gratitude. He was greeted by his mom and dad, John and Ruth Hummel, his brother Jack, and many other loved ones and friends.
Our many thanks go out to Valeo for the tender care they gave dad over the last 13 months. His nurses were so kind and he kept them on their toes with his quick wit as well.
