Born: 9/16/1949, Tooele, Utah
Death: 2/8/2018, Moab, Utah

Service: 02/13/2018, 6:00, Spanish Valley Mortuary

Robert A “Bob” Shields, 68, passed away Feb. 8, 2018, at his home in Moab, Utah.

Bob was born Sept. 16, 1949 in Tooele, Utah to Sam & Delma Anderson Shields. He grew up in Tooele and graduated from Tooele High School and attended SSU in Cedar City, Utah. He married Claudia Parker on July 7, 1990 in Elko, Nevada.

Bob worked in the Salt Lake area, later working for the Utah State Liquor Department as Manager of the Tooele and Moab stores for 28 years, retiring in 2012. Being a history and book lover and after reading every book in the Moab Library, he took a part-time job for 4 more years. Bob loved to joke around and was very quick on the comeback. His mother said he would tell her jokes when he was very young and say, “get it Mom?” … she did, but wasn’t sure he did.

He is survived by his wife Claudia; and her sons, Sean, Jeff and Adam Cox; his sister Nancy Shields Kobler of Santa Rosa, California; and his nephew David Ekenstam of Tooele.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents, his twin brother Sam, his sister Jessie Ekenstam; and a stepson Jacob Cox. Many thanks go to Claudia for caring for Bob during his 24 years of heart problems.

A viewing will be held Tuesday, Feb. 13, from 6-8PM at Spanish Valley Mortuary in Moab. A service will also be held Friday, Feb. 16 at 12 PM, at Tate Mortuary in Tooele, Utah, followed by burial at the Tooele City Cemetery.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
