Robert Allen Wren

Oct. 2, 1936 ~ March 26, 2020

Robert Allen Wren, 83, passed away on March 26, 2020, surrounded by family. Robert (Bob) was born on Oct. 2, 1936, to Harry and Ercel (Wallace) Wren in Dayton, Ohio. He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Mary Wren; seven of their eight children; a brother and a sister; 21 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren. 

Bob moved from Plain City, Ohio, to Meeker, Colorado, in 1992 after retiring from the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 189, and selling his corn and soybean farm. After retirement, Bob remained a member of the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 189, and reached a milestone of 55 years of membership. Bob immediately fell in love with Meeker and the mountains upon his first visit, and made Meeker his home for the remainder of his days.

Farming and ranching was in Bob’s blood and some of his happiest moments were working cows, working with horses, or driving his tractors.
