Obituary for Robert Jay Minor

Robert Jay Minor, 54, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family, on the 11th of December 2018 at LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. He fought a courageous two-year battle against several different cancers.

Rob was born on the 17th of March, 1964 on the Naval Construction Battalion Center in Port Hueneme, California to Jay and Marla Minor. They later moved to Bowie, Maryland where he lived until he was 15. His family then moved to Maple Valley, Washington in 1979 and graduated from Tahoma High School in 1982. Following graduation, Rob attended Brigham Young University before serving a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Milan, Italy (1983-1985). After returning home from his missionary service, Rob was hired by the Washington State Patrol on the 24th of April 1987. In the State Patrol he worked as a Line Trooper, a member of the DUI Squad, Riot Team, Homeland Security Division and in the WSP Explosive Detection K-9 Unit.

Rob was sealed to his best friend for time and all eternity, Dyan Rummell, on Valentine’s day in 1992 in the Seattle, Washington Temple. They were happily married for over 26 years and had three beautiful children. Rob retired from the Washington State Patrol on the 1st of August 2013 after 26 years of honorable service to the state of Washington. Rob and DeeDee then moved their family to Cache Valley Utah in 2013 where he began working for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Church Security Department until the time of his passing. Rob loved serving the leaders of the church and made forever friends along the way. He was loved by all who knew him.

Rob was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He loved vintage cars, rock music, riding motorcycles, and camping with his family. He received numerous awards from M.A.D.D. (Mothers Against Drunk Drivers) for over 1300 DUI arrests during his career. However, Rob’s favorite assignment was working in the explosive detection unit as a K9 handler. There, he was able to work with his K9 partner, Bo, whom he loved dearly. Following Bo’s retirement, Jessie became his new partner and worked by his side until Rob’s retirement in 2013.

Rob is survived by his wife Dyan (DeeDee) of North Logan, Utah; his daughter Melissa Yourglich (Brent) of Provo, Utah; his daughter Madelyn Butterfield (Alex) of Provo, Utah; and his son Matthew Minor of USMC. His father Jay Minor (Gail) of Boise, Idaho; his mother Marla Minor of Providence, Utah; his brother Michael Minor (Michelle) of Enumclaw, Washington; his sister Michelle Bruneau (Michael) of Vancouver, Washington; his sister Kristin Mortenson (Matt) of Gilbert, Arizona; his newest pride and joy, his granddaughter, Perri Yourglich; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
