Robert William Parish

October 9, 1965 — November 9, 2019

The Lord called Robert William Parish home on Saturday, November 9, 2019. Rob was born on October 9, 1965 in Cheyenne, Wyoming to Frank and Melvina Parish. He grew up in El Sobrante, California. Growing up he loved to follow his dad around and do whatever he was doing. He also enjoyed playing football, riding his horse, and repairing mechanical objects which lead to his career choice. As he got older he began to ride bareback horses and traveled to many rodeos. One time when he was attending a rodeo in Wyoming, his cousin set him up on a date with one of her girlfriends. This blind date turned into a life-long relationship when he married his wife, Jean Muller, on April 3, 1993. The couple had two beautiful daughters, Kayti and Laci Parish, who were Rob’s pride and joy. Between his wife and daughters, he had his hands full and he was usually shaking his head at one of them. Robert was an ornery guy who always had a smile on his face and bear hugs for others. He had a love for hunting, camping, Cowboy Mounted Shooting, and most of all the Lord. He cherished his family and was always offering a helping hand to others. Rob is lovingly remembered and will be forever missed by his family which includes his wife, Jean Parish; daughters, Kayti and Laci Parish; father, Frank and mother, Melvina Parish, his brothers, Frank (Julie) Parish and Larry “Casey” Parish, his sister, Staci Parish, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, and cousins. He was reunited in heaven with his grandparents and other family members.  There will be a celebration of Rob’s life at 11:00 am on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at High Plains Community Church, and a gathering of family and friends will take place on Friday, November 15, 2019 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm at Gillette Memorial Chapel. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to the CMSA Scholarship Fund in his name. Memorials and condolences may be sent in care of Gillette Memorial Chapel, 210 West 5th Street Gillette, Wy 82716. Condolences may also be expressed at
