Robert ‘Bob’ D. Uhrich

April 3, 1944 – March 24, 2020

Robert “Bob” D. Uhrich, 75, Grass Creek, passed away Tuesday, March 24, 2020, at his home surrounded by his wife and children.

Born on April 3, 1944, in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, he was the son of the late Leonard and Anna (Moore) Uhrich.

On April 3, 1969, at the Dague family home, he married Judith K. Dague. She survives. They celebrated 50 years of marriage in 2019 with a small family party at their home, lovingly called their paradise.

Bob began teaching in 1968 at Southwood High School; however, he spent most of his 43 1/2 years teaching math and physics for Caston High School. He loved coaching many sports teams at Caston. He was an active member of the Metea Baptist Church for more than 50 years and the Grass Creek Lions Club for 29 years. As a member of the Lions Club, Bob received the Melvin Jones award in 2019. One of many joys included driving his father-in-law Joe Dague’s Lions Club race car in many area parades, always with a smile on his face. Bob was part of the Fulton County Library Board for more than 30 years.

Bob loved sports of all kinds and could make a game out of any activity. From the classroom to church activities to all his time spent with his kids and grandkids, wherever he went fun seemed to follow him. His smile and fun spirit will be forever missed.

Surviving along with his wife, Judy, is a son, Tim (Juanna) Uhrich, Lucerne; two daughters, Tammy (Brent) Colvin, Fulton, and Jonni (Justin) Miller, Rossville; two brothers, Larry (Rita) Uhrich, Grayson, Ga., and Richard (Nancy) Uhrich, Elkton, Fla; his sister, Lois (John) Butler, Grand Rapids, Mich.; and nine grandchildren who lit up his life, Noah, Micah, Garett, Molly, Luke, Grace, Anna, Megan and Maggie.

A private family viewing and private funeral will be on Thursday, March 26, 2020, at Gundrum Funeral Home. Burial will be in Metea Cemetery. A celebration of life may be planned at a later date.

Memorials may go to the Grass Creek Lions Club or the Metea Baptist Church designated to be used to enable more kids to attend Tippecanoe Baptist Camp.

“This life was a better place because we were loved by him.”
