Robert Ross Barrick passed away February 2nd in Parowan, Utah, on a sunlit winter afternoon, in the home that he built, holding the hand of his beloved wife. Bob was born May 7th, 1948, in Cedar City, Utah to Ross and Arlene Barrick. He graduated from Cedar High School and attended Las Vegas Trade and Technical School, receiving his journeyman certificate as a carpenter and glazier. Bob served with honor in Vietnam, receiving the Purple Heart and bronze star, but was most proud of attaining his sharp shooters badge in the pistol and rifle. Bob had a variety of careers over his lifetime including working as a bell boy, waiter, baker, butcher, bread truck driver, running a glass installation business, an archery business and doing maintenance. He patented a device to allow handicapped hunters to bow hunt and successfully ran that business for several years. He retired from Cedar Breaks National Monument. Bob had a multitude of talents and could fix anything. He had an affinity for animals and over the course of his life had many different pets including a golden eagle and a crow. He loved cars, motorcycles and airplanes and was an avid and accomplished remote control plane pilot. Bob quietly battled cancer for three and a half years, always remaining positive he could beat the disease. In fact, he did outlive the doctors' gloomy prognosis by three years, enduring five different chemotherapy regimens and losing his hair three times. He suffered through all the side effects and symptoms bravely and without complaint. He is survived by the love of his life, his wife Barbara, children Kurt and Shannon, step-children Wendy, Matt, Jeff and Jenni Young, four grandchildren, two step-grandchildren, eight great grandchildren, his mother Arlene Barrick and sister Gerry. Bob was an uncommon man and will be uncommonly missed. A Memorial service will be held on Friday, February 6, 2015 at 1:00 pm at the Parowan Southern Utah Mortuary in Parowan, Utah. A visitation will be held prior to the service on Friday from 12:30 to 1:00 pm. at the Mortuary. Arrangements are being handled by Southern Utah Mortuary.
