Robert J. Beaver, 46 of Eau Claire passed away on Sunday, August 27, 2017 in Eau Claire.
Robert was born on November 12, 1970 to Jack Beaver and Patricia Ward in Madison, Wisconsin. He grew up in Eau Claire and graduated from North High School. Growing up, Rob’s dad, Jack, was his hero and their fishing trips together were some of their best memories.
Robert married Amy Bohms on June 5, 2010 in East Lansing, MI. They have spent 12 wonderful years together. Rob’s passion was Martial Arts and he started his martial arts career at Karate America in Altoona. He loved helping other students perfect their techniques and prepare for their belt tests. He enjoyed helping them be the best they could be. His lifelong dream was to start his own martial arts school. For the last five years Rob had enjoyed working for Associated Milk Producers, Inc and loved the comradery and friendships he made there; they became family.
Rob was a goofball to all who knew him and he would say that, “if he made you smile then that’s all that mattered.” He had an unbelievable caring and compassionate love for animals especially his cats, “the girls.” He loved the Green Bay Packers and he and Amy always wore their lucky jerseys on Sundays to watch the game, or yell at the T.V. Rob lit up every room he entered and left a lasting impression with everyone he met.
He is survived by his wife, Amy; his step-daughter, Kya; and his step-grandson, Kaizer; as well as his parents, and many other friends and family.
Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, September 8, 2017 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm at Smith Funeral Chapel.
