In loving memory, Robert Post

    Robert Allen Post was born on March 13th, 1950 in Casper, Wyoming. He left this world to go home to his Savior, Jesus Christ on May 24th, 2024 while surrounded by his family at the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls. Rob’s parents were Donald Lee Post and Elizabeth (Bette) Post. Rob had two siblings, his brother Donald Post and his sister Peggy Kaul.

    Rob graduated from Pinedale High School in 1968 and immediately volunteered for the US Army. Before shipping out to Vietnam he married his childhood sweetheart Melva Ann Priebe. Rob served active duty until 1971, then he and Melva returned home to Boulder to begin their life together. Rob was honorably discharged in 1975. Rob and Melva had three boys, Kip, Mat & Cody. Rob was the hardest working rancher, logger, welder, truck driver, mechanic, and overall entrepreneur that anyone knew. The family moved to Riverton in 1987 and lived there until retirement in 2017. Rob was an active member of his local VFW Chapter, the military Honor Guard, and involved heavily in the Pinedale Bible Church.

    Rob loved all the beauty of Wyoming. Hunting, fishing, four wheeling, exploring all the amazing areas of our beautiful state filled his days. Driving a team of horses, especially his percheron’s in the mountains gave Rob true joy. Rob’s biggest passion though was his family. He cherished spending time with his sons and their families. It never mattered what they were doing if they were doing it together. Rob started each day with a good morning text to his boys and posting a Cowboy Prayer to his facebook page.

    Rob was preceded in death by his parents Don and Bette and his brother Don. He is survived by his wife Melva, Sister Peggy Kaul (husband Alan) Sons Kip and wife Janet, Mat and wife Donna, and Cody and wife Danielle and his grandchildren Kyara, Kaelyn, Celeste (great granddaughter Ayla), Cierra, Maci, Sonja, Nolan, Ryden, Creedly, and Trailen. Rob is also survived by many extended family, friends, and his four-legged children.

    Funeral Services will be held at the Boulder Community Center in Boulder, Wyoming on Sunday June 2nd at 3pm with a reception following at the same location. Please bring a side dish or dessert for the meal. The family would like anyone who wishes to speak at the services and share a story they have of Rob.
