Obituary

Robert M Allred, 63, of Grover, Wyoming passed away on March 3, 2022 surrounded by his wife, five children, and the love of his entire family.

Bob was born on November 20, 1958 tp Noel N and Beatrice McGavin Allred in Afton, Wyoming. He attended school in Star Valley and was a graduate of Star Valley High School in 1977. Bob married his high school sweetheart Deborah Jo Allen in June 14, 1978 in the Salt Lake Temple. After their marriage, the moved to Provo, Utah where Bob attended school at Utah Technical College. There, they began a family and welcomed their eldest son, Anthony Robert. Shortly after graduation, their small family returned to Afton and lived in Bob's grandmother's home on Allred Road. In this home, their family grew to include two more children; Travis Noel and Jessica Jo. Needing a home to fit their growing family, they purchased a home in Osmond where they added two more children, Jenna Brynn and Mitchell Legrand, and completed their family. This home housed their family, laughter, and many childhood memories until they purchased land in Grover from Debbie's parents and together built their forever home.

Bob was a skilled tradesman. He seemed to know how to build or fix anything. One of his favorite pastimes was working in his wood shop on various projects, a favorite being the cedar chest that he built for Debbie as a graduation gift. He found his greatest joy spending time with family camping, fishing, and going on ATV rides. But Bob described his happiest days as those spent with all if his children in the temple.

Bob was member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He held the office of High Priest and served in many leadership positions including Elders Quorum President, Young Men's President, Membership Clerk and a counselor in the Afton Stake Mission Presidency. He also taught Sunday School where he could share his deep love and understanding of the Gospel. His testimony of his Savior and the plan of salvation will be a legacy that his family forever cherishes.

Bob and Debbie owned and operated Allred Appliance in Afton, Wyoming for over 40 years. Working alongside each other, they served the community and came to know and love many Star Valley residents well. Bob recently retired after selling the building in January.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents Noel and Beatrice and by one granddaughter, Brynn Kuhlman. He is survived by his wife Deborah Jo and his children, Anthony Robert Allred, Travis Noel (ValaRae) Allred, Jessica Jo (Michael) Malcom, Jenna Brynn (Devon) Kuhlman, Mitchell Legrand (Courtney) Allred and 22 grandchildren. He was looking forward to the birth of his first great-grandchild due in April. He is also survivirf by his sister Nola (lyndon) Parsons and brother Jim (Lynne) Allred.
