SUNSET, Utah Robert Christian McQuarrie died one month short of his 91st birthday, on Wednesday, March 28, 2001, of natural causes.

He was born April 28, 1910, in Hyde Park, Utah, to Robert Summerhays and Lillie Eliza Mikkelsen McQuarrie. He grew up in Hyde Park, attending Cache County schools and playing in the Hyde Park orchestra with his father.

Bob married Letha Newbold on Oct. 16, 1933. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Logan LDS Temple. They lived in Twin Falls, Idaho, for about nine years and then briefly in Clearfield before moving to Sunset where they lived until Letha died in October of 1965. Bob married LaVerne Redford Bennett on May 15, 1968, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They worked, traveled, and enjoyed life together for nearly 33 years.

Bob was a High Priest and had been a member of the Sunset 1st LDS Ward for the entire time he was a resident of Sunset, beginning in 1943. He was very active and served in many positions within the church.

Bob farmed in Idaho in his early married life and retired from Hill Air Force Base in 1971 as a Personnel Specialist. Photography was also a big part of his life.
