Robert Lynn Cudney

Robert Lynn Cudney Robert Lynn Cudney, 59 of Green River Wyoming returned to his heavenly home December 17, 2017. Robert was born June 30th 1958 in Rock Springs, Wyoming. He is the son of Bobby Joe Cudney and Donna June Lewis. His family moved to Utah and he attended schools in Sunset and Clearfield. He returned to Green River Wyoming in 1976 where he has lived for the last 41 years He began his mining career at Allied Chemical as a shot fire at the young age of 18. Over the years he often told his kids stories about how much he had enjoyed getting paid to play with dynamite. Over the years he became certified to operate most if not all the underground mining equipment. He spent the last few years in underground mine maintenance as a certified diesel mechanic. He married Connie Gene Checketts on June 11, 1977 in Ogden Utah. They were later sealed in the Ogden Temple. They were blessed with three children Bobby and wife Jamie of Green River, Apatua Alexis of Green River, and Shawn and wife Erin of Mountain Home Idaho, as well as 5 grandchildren, Josh, Allysa, Colter, Jordan and Briggs. Robert was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Robert enjoyed spending time with his family and loved spoiling his five grandchildren, often helping them to get into trouble they hadn’t thought of themselves. He enjoyed woodworking, hunting, fishing, and riding his four wheeler’s. He was a huge supporter of his wife and kids during their demolition derby days. He served as president of the Jaycees in his younger years. When he worked at General Chemical he served as the Vice President of Steelworkers Union 15320. He was currently serving on the Jamestown Rio Vista Water Board. Rob was big hearted and always willing to help others. During the last 26 years Rob helped serve as a volunteer for his wife as she worked first at Castle Rock Convalescent Center and then more recently at Deer Trail Assisted Living. He never really knew what type of heart warming, fun or silly activity his wife would get him into, but he always went along willing. Robert loved animals and they loved him. He enjoyed raising golden retriever puppies. The delivery process became a family affair and many great memories were made while family members young and old gathered together regardless of the hour to be part of these beautiful little puppies being born. Robert has had to endure pain many times during his life. For much of the last 15 years since he went out on disability retirement Rob has been in pain 24 hours a day with the pain becoming excoriating at times over the last 2 years, but he always had an easy smile and when asked how he was doing he would reply “I’m still kickin just not very high” or his ever famous “I’m peachy”. Robert was preceded in death by paternal grandparents Thelma and Bill Cudney, Maternal Grandparents Mable and Bill Lewis and sisters Pam Woolsey and Cindy Simpson. Robert was a wonderful, kind caring and generous son, husband , dad and papa. He will be missed tremendously, but his influence on his family will be felt for all of their lifetime. May God bless and keep you honey till we meet again Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Thursday, December 21, 2017 at the Green River LDS 1st & 3rd Ward Chapel, 1000 W 4th North, Green River.

Dear Connie and family: I am sincerely saddened by your loss of Bobby. He was always such a pleasant person when he came to visit Pat, and I also got to talk to him as well when we lived on the Green River. I know you already know that he was a "genuinely" nice man, but wanted to let you know others thought so, too. Your loss is tremendous and I want to let you know how sorry I am. Sincerely: Sue Porter

So very sorry to hear of your Loss. Many years ago we were blessed with one of his beautiful Golden Retriever puppies. She became a very loved and cherished member of our family. We have always been grateful to have found Mr. Cudney and his furry babies. In 2012 Our sweet, sweet Leisha dog went to heaven after a devastating diagnosis of hip cancer, my prayer is that she, along with the many other sweet sweet fur babies are there in heaven with Mr. Cudney, wagging their tails in Joy to see him. I know our beloved Leisha dog will. God Bless and may our Heavenly Father give you peace and comfort at this time and allow wonderful memories flood your heart until you are with him again. The Harsha family.

Connie, Bobby, Lexi, Shawn, Donna, Bob and family - what a beautiful tribute to Robert! I'm so thankful I was lucky enough to have Robert for a brother-in-law, I couldn't ask for one that was more caring and supportive - loved animals as much as me and loved my sister as much as Robert did. I can't begin to imagine the loss that you all are going through. Although I have no words to ease your pain, I am sending you my love and pray that God will hold your broken hearts in his loving hands. My love to you all, Jayne

I first became acquainted with Bob when he was president of the Green River Jaycees in 1982. A selfless man, in Jaycee Terms, "a sparkplug." I'm very sorry for your loss.
