Robert Duane Buelow
1952 ~ 2022
Robert was born and raised in the Darlingford/Windygates area. He grew up hunting and studying nature. Even as a young child, he could build or fix anything and he grew into a gifted carpenter. There was nothing he could not make with wood or metal. A difficult project to him was like a challenge he would not be defeated by. He carried this philosophy throughout his life and pushed himself for perfection in everything he did. This included growing a beautiful, clean garden. He had a huge heart and gave freely of his time and energy to help anyone in need, though he would never ask for help himself.  A man of strong convictions and a great sense of humor, he loved to debate the issues of the day with “the boys” in the coffee shop. Robert truly loved his land in the valley, but there was nothing he loved more than his wife of 39 years and his children. To him, the sun rose and set on each and every one. No Dad could ever have been prouder than he was. When he became a grandpa, he took proud to a whole new level. His happiest moments were spent with his 9 grandchildren. One of his most recent proud moments was teaching his granddaughters about gun safety and giving them their first shooting lesson. There was not a time he could sit in his big chair without a granddaughter snuggling up on his lap. He would also help them put their babies to bed in the doll beds he made for them. Oh, how he loved each and every one of them.
Robert will be greatly missed by his wife, Laura and their four children: son, Travis (Roberta) Buelow, Avery, Heidi, Hailey, daughter, Tiffany (Chris) Carson, Kelby, Logan, Cadence, Sawyer, son, Evan (Kourtney) Buelow and daughter, Natasha (Tyler) Riglin, Burklee and Denver as well as his brother, Ron Schindel and his family and nephew, Tyson Babey and his family. He left us far too soon but passed knowing how deeply loved he was. We are sure he is having coffee in Heaven and watching the wildlife. And without a doubt, he will be bragging to everyone about his kids and grandkids.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
