Robert “Bob” E Rix

Robert E Rix passed away on June 21, 2021 at the age of 67. He was born April 27, 1954 in Salt Lake City Utah to Robert Rix & Edith M Rix. He loved to travel with his parents and made many trips back to England. At the young age of 15 he picked up sailing where he piloted his Sunfish to many victories. Bob married his soulmate DeAnne Hansen on September 19, 1983. They welcomed their pride and joy Stephanie in November of 1986 and had many joyful years working together in California and Utah. He started his career at BMW of Murray and spent many years with them until he opened his own shop. He could diagnose any problem on a BMW just by the noise it made. He got the nickname from his daughter and her friends “Bob Must Work”. His beloved wife DeAnne passed away in 1999 and he spent many years loving and mourning her. Bobs passing brings us some comfort in knowing he is no longer in pain or suffering from recent health conditions and that he is finally reunited with his soulmate.
He is survived by his children Travis Rix and Stephanie Lopez, Sister Barbara Capener (Steven), grandchildren Trey Rix, Isaiah Rix, Abigail Rix, and Sollivan Lopez.
Bob also leaves behind his loyal companion Lucky and many friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents and his wife.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date to be determined.
