Robert Keith Garside

August 6, 1935 — June 23, 2024

Robert Keith Garside, a beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather, great-grandfather, and great-great-grandfather, passed peacefully at his home on June 23, 2024.

Born on August 6, 1935, in Salt Lake County, Utah, Robert had fulfilling life dedicated to family, faith, and service. Throughout his career as a salesman for chemical water treatments, he displayed unwavering dedication and professionalism. His commitment to his work was truly admirable. He won several awards for top salesman for DuBois Chemical International, supplying for many local restaurants and school districts, as well as for Hill Air Force Base.

He fondly had the name "Bob" that no one could forget. He had it embroidered on his shirts, jackets and even his belt buckles.

Bob’s proudest accomplishments extended far beyond the professional realm. Raised in Bluffdale, Utah, he embraced his role as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints wholeheartedly. His service as a Young Men President and Primary teacher left a lasting impact on the community. Additionally, Bob devoted 12 years to the Pioneer Days Committee, showcasing his passion for tradition and celebration. Although he narrowly missed becoming Mayor due to a literal roll of the dice, his spirit remained resilient. He cherished his time serving on the Washington Terrace City Council as well as the City Planning Commission. It is also worth noting that he was THE very best neighbor.

A true community pillar, Bob was a lifetime member of the Elks, Eagles and Lions Club serving as a statewide representative for the "Just Say No" drugs campaign. His dedication to making a positive difference in society was exemplary.

Outside of his professional and community endeavors, Bob found joy in various hobbies including hunting, fishing, skiing, and golf. These activities brought him immense happiness and allowed him to connect with nature in profound ways.

Bob leaves behind a legacy of love and compassion that will be cherished by all who knew him. He is survived by his loving wife, Rachel Garside; devoted children, David K. Garside, Steven R. Garside, DyAnn Johnson, and Erin (Tim) LeBlanc; along with 10 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, and 7 great-great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother Brent (Kelly) Garside. He was preceded in death by his parents and one brother.

In conclusion, Robert Keith Garside will be remembered for his kind heart, strong work ethic, and dedication to family and community. May his soul rest in eternal peace as we celebrate the remarkable life he lived.
