1938 ~ 2004

Robert "Bob" Gutke, age 65, passed away March 18, 2004 in Salt Lake City, UT surrounded by his wife and children.

Robert was born to Clyde Frederick and Gladys Anna Monson Gutke in Salt Lake City October 23, 1938. He married Lynne Doxey March 16, 1964 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

Robert lived his life full of service and friendship to others. Always quick with a smile and a joke, Robert brought joy into the lives of his family and friends. Robert cherished his grandchildren, and his grandchildren will always love their "Papa." Robert owned and operated Bob's Audio Video for most of his career and always put his customers ahead of his pocketbook. Robert worked as an electrical engineer for the Salt Lake City School District before starting his own business. His example of charity, service and humor will live forever in the hearts of those whose lives he touched.

Robert is survived by his wife, Lynne; children, David (Heather), Jeff (Carla), Greg (Emily), and Diane (David Locher); brothers, Richard Kent, Jerrold, and Dennis; and grandchildren, Jacob, Rachel, Melissa, Eliza, Stephen, J. Evan, Julia, Brian, Amberlee, and Isabelle.
