Love. You did it so perfectly for 86 years. Born September 23, 1929 to Earl Heber and Loyas Ora Christensen Wilde, that love filled the arms of your dear parents. On December 11, 2015 it was that love we felt as you left the arms of your sweetheart and family here on earth, and were welcomed with warm embrace by your parents, brothers, sister, and grand-daughter. Robert Earl Wilde, we will forever cherish you as our husband, father, and grandpa.
From your childhood in Hiawatha, raising your family in Provo, and your new home in West Jordan, your imaginative and infectious personality created life-long friendships you cherished and celebrated. You had a great love for country as evidenced by your honorable service to the Air Force and your career as a US Postal worker. Your desire to serve others drew you to these positions and we will always remember your excitement and personal touch in delivering call letters to missionary families.
Your love for competition was visible in cheering for BYU, watching the NY Yankees, playing golf, and beating your family in cards with a grin that could not be contained. We would gladly lose one last time to see that smile again.
Above all, your love of family and your Savior guided everything you did. Your dedication to Christ as an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and a servant of the Lord in His Temple stands as an example for us. You loved your wife, Renee Dawn Worthen more than life itself and prepared for that special day on June 24, 1955 when you were sealed for time and all eternity in the Manti Temple. Your three children, Mitchell (Jennifer), Stuart (Jamie), and Debbie (Bob) were your greatest accomplishment and your grandchildren your pride and joy. How grateful we are for your example of humility, selflessness, humor, loyalty and service. We will miss you and always strive to love as you did.
