Robert (Bob) Wayne Jensen

Robert (Bob) Wayne Jensen passed away peacefully on July 9th, 2020. Bob arrived into this world on Christmas Day 1973 to Wayne and Joyce Jensen. He grew up in Castle Dale, Utah, and later moved to West Jordan, Utah. Bob attended West Jordan High School where he met his future wife, Trish Miller. They moved to Washington State and later settled in Green River, Wyoming. Together they had 3 daughters, Shayla Ann, Ashlyn Ella, and Baylee Joyce. They later divorced, but remained friends. Bob worked for Bridger Coal Company as an underground coal miner and surface mechanic for 20 years, where he made many lifelong friends. He was Vice President of the Boilermakers Union. Bob proved to be very versatile working in the coal fields. He learned most aspects of surface and underground. He was considered a highly valued miner. His fellow workers liked to know Bob was on the crew and looking after them and the equipment. Bob later changed fields due to a back injury. He was working his dream job as an MSHA inspector at the time of his passing. Bob loved his family. Together they enjoyed fishing, camping, shopping, archery, and shooting guns. He enjoyed spending time with his girls, even if it meant having an at home spa day. Bob was an excellent cook and baker. He was famous for his biscuits and gravy and chocolate chip cookies. Bob was very devoted to all of his family, including his extended family. At the drop of a hat, he would leave the state and drive hours to help with any repairs or support that was needed.

Guestbook

Worked with Bob at Bridger Coal gosh about 16 years ago. When I first met Bob at work we were both the kind of people that would crack up at our own jokes. It didnt take long to find out Bob loved his family, that he was very great full to have them in his life. We had different positions at work so we didnt see each other every day, but when we did we talked for awhile. He was a good person and I loved the fact that he held the same values I did. Glad I got to know him before the good Lord needed another angel. :heart::pray:
