Robert “Bob” Ned Rees

Robert “Bob” Ned Rees, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend passed away January 6th in the comfort of his home with his wife by his side. Bob was born March 24, 1960 to Thomas Junior Rees and Coral Kaye Peterson. He married his soul mate, Brinda Lee Brewer on February 20, 1980. Together they had two beautiful children, Annie Kaye and Robert Thomas.
Bob worked as a coal miner for Skyline Mine for the past 29 years. In his spare time, Bob enjoyed shed hunting, wood working and most of all being a grandfather to his precious grand children, Mitchell, Brock, Cole, Sophie, and Kayson.
He enjoyed watching his grandsons playing Templar football and watching his “littles” ride bikes and scooters in the spring. His wife Brinda was the light of his life and he worked diligently to provide and protect her.
Robert faced many trials and hardships, but the most prominent loss was that of his son, Robert in August of 2002. Robert’s faith in the gospel kept him going in knowing he would soon be reunited with his son.
Robert is survived by his wife, Brinda Lee (Ephraim); daughter, Annie Kaye (Wendell) Jacobson, Ephraim; sister, Susan (Brett) McFarlane; brother, Tom (Debbie) Rees; his grandchildren, many nieces, nephews, and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, T.J. and Kaye; mother and father-law, Earl and Annie Brewer; friend, Mitchell Anderson; and best buddy and son, Robert Rees.
