Obituary

Beloved husband, father, and friend, Robert LeRoy Witzke, age 84, passed away
peacefully on June 17, 2020 in Ogden, Utah. He was born November 12, 1935 in
Chicago, Illinois. His adoptive parents were Edward Witzke and Alice Daisy Parker.
Robert was charming, witty, loved to make people smile and laugh, and would always
have a joke ready. He loved to spend time with his family and dearly loved each family
member.
Robert, who went by the nickname Lucky, spent his early years in Illinois, Colorado, and
California and his adult years in Arizona, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Utah.
Robert served in the USAF from 1952 until his honorable discharge in 1956. He
received the National Defense Service Medal for service during the Korean War. Robert
was a member of the USAF Military Police and was the bodyguard to General
Armstrong while stationed at Elmendorf Air Force Base. He also served in the USAF
Reserve from 1957 until his honorable discharge in 1961.
Robert’s careers included Airman in the USAF, truck driver, foreman in the steel mill
industry, operation worker, restaurant owner, and meat salesman. He had a strong
work ethic.
Robert’s first wife was the late Frances Goodman. He is survived by three daughters
Kim Pulley, Angela Andersen, Cynthia Kuhn, 11 grandchildren, and 32 greatgrandchildren.
Robert’s second wife was the late Barbara Ussery. He is survived by
three stepdaughters Colleen Down, Cathy Ussery, Cheryl Wilde, 16 step grandchildren,
and 21 step great-grandchildren.
Robert’s hobbies included water skiing, boating, camping, and traveling. He had a love
of music and loved to whistle, play piano, play guitar, sing, dance, and square dance.
He was a square dance caller.
Robert was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and
served in many callings including teacher, branch presidency member, missionary, and
temple ordinance worker in the St. George Temple. Robert had a firm testimony of
eternal life and believed we will all sit down in heaven together. Robert was fond of this
square dancing saying: “Old square dancers never die. They just roll away with a half
sashay.” Robert was dearly loved and will be dearly missed.
Funeral services will be held June 26, 2020 at the Kanarraville Chapel at 10:00 a.m.
with a family viewing at 9:00 a.m. Interment with military funeral honors by Nellis AFB
