Robert Beus Obituary

Jay Robert Beus, age 77, passed away February 21, 2024 at his home in Fairview, Wyoming. He was born on January 26, 1947 in Ogden, Utah to Jay Richard and Marjorie Beus. Robert was raised on a dairy farm in Hooper, Utah along with his siblings; Annette, Carroll, MarJean and Brad.  He had a wonderful childhood and was privileged to live close to numerous uncles, aunts, cousins, grandparents and good neighbors.  Robert learned to work hard, besides helping milk the cows, he helped with crops such as sugar beets, tomatoes, alfalfa, and corn silage. He spent many hours riding his horse, Trix, around Hooper visiting friends and trying to keep out of mischief.  Robert also enjoyed hunting ducks and pheasants. Even as a boy, he was interested in “how things worked” and became very good at fixing what was broken. He was a great mechanic and handy man.

Robert attended elementary school in Hooper, graduated in 1965 from Weber High School in Ogden, where he lettered in football. He was fun to be around and had many friends.  He served a Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the West Spanish American Mission from 1965-1968. He always treasured the people he met and the experiences he had during his mission service.

When he returned from his Mission, he started attending Weber State College and working at ZCMI.  During this time he met Lynette Kennington, who was attending Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho. It was love at first sight and the beginning of a long distance courtship, wherein they would only see each other every two weeks. They were married on September 12, 1969 in the Logan Temple.

 A few years later, Robert graduated with a BS degree in Business and Accounting and moved to Fairview, Wyoming with Lynette. Where he worked for Caribou Four Corners (Maverik) in the office and as an Area Rep. He also worked for 7 Eleven as an Area Rep, and later in Financial Planning and Insurance. Robert fulfilled one of his dreams, by  getting his pilot’s license and becoming the owner of a small plane. He was able to fly it to various locations as he was working as an Area Rep. He also took many people up for rides. He loved flying. He was a member of the Civil Air Patrol and enjoyed these flights. Robert was active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint and served in many callings. His favorite were with the Youth and in the Primary.  

Robert was very happy when he became a dad to 4 sons and 1 daughter – Jim, Mike, Blake, Kade and Vandi. He was a fun, attentive, kind and proud father. Robert  taught the kids to work hard and to be kind to others. He enjoyed taking his kids flying, camping in the Uinta mountains and going to visit the Utah Beus family. He encouraged and supported their activities and helped them with numerous projects.  Becoming a grandpa was a highlight for Robert. He dearly loved his family!

Robert handled his devasting cancer journey with dignity, patience, strength and positivity. His life could be summed by – “He went about doing good,” blessing the lives of many with love, kindness and understanding.

Robert is survived by his wife Lynette, his children; Mike and Bethany Beus, Blake and Missy Beus, Vandi and Chad Walker, Kade Beus, and daughter-in-law Dana Beus; his 15 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter, and his siblings; Annette Christensen, Carroll Thomas, MarJean Wright, and Brad Beus. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews who think the world of their uncle Robert/Bob.
