Robert Charles Weyrauch
June 20, 1955 - February 22, 2020

Place of Birth: Williston, North Dakota
Residence: Ray, North Dakota
Age: 64

Robert C. Weyrauch, 64 of Ray, ND passed away on Saturday, February 22, 2020 at his residence in Ray, ND under the care of hospice.

Robert Charles Weyrauch (Bob) rode his horse onto God’s Ranch in-the-sky on February 22, 2020. Robert was the third born child of Harvey and Aurita (Daniel) Weyrauch on June 20, 1955.

He was raised and educated in Ray, ND, graduating from the Ray High School with the class of 1973.

He married his high school sweetheart Julie Hill in 1980 and together they had one child, Kristin Lee. Robert and Julie were later divorced.

He worked on the farm harvesting and taking care of the cows and horses. Through the years he held numerous oilfield related jobs, including managing a rod guide shop and welding in his later years before retiring. Every year he would come back home to help Paul with harvest, and he could push the old Gleaner to its limits like no one else could.

Robert lived for horses, dancing, and hunting. He was somewhat of a horse whisperer and broke countless horses in his years. He loved to go on trail rides with friends, give wagon and sleigh rides, rode in many parades, did the Maah Daah Hey Trail in Theodore Roosevelt Park, and rode in the reenactment of the Pony Express Ride from Williston to Ray. He loved dancing to a good country band or song and often with every lady in the room. A few times he would even ride his horse to town, dance all night and then ride home again. Hunting and fishing were always a big part of his life and something he liked to do with his friends and family.

He would try just about anything once – or twice! He could water ski sitting on a lawn chair, built and learned to fly a gyrocopter and wrecked it. He could play the harmonica while “Whiskey” the dog sang along, and could crack a bull-whip like nobody’s business. When the Juneberries ripened, he would round up a crew, pick berries and then convince his mom or sister Joanne, to make him his favorite Juneberry pie. Robert was what they called “A Real Character!”. Kids were drawn to Uncle Bob because he had an extraordinary “way-with-kids” but they were always told (and usually listened) that there would be no whining at Uncle Bob’s. He could always keep the kids laughing and having a great time! His 3 year old grandson, Carter Wyatt was the light of his life the past few years.

Robert will be forever missed by his daughter, Kristin (Joe) Gunderson and their son, Carter ; parents, Harvey and Aurita Weyrauch; siblings, Marie (Dave) Challes, Faye Moe (Cal Raaum), Joanne Ulven, Paul (Peggy) Weyrauch; nieces, nephews; great-nieces and great-nephews.

Welcoming him in heaven are his grandparents, Agnes and Charles Daniel, George and Cecelia Weyrauch and Wyatt Booke (the son he adopted as his own).

Fulkerson Stevenson Funeral Home of Tioga is assisting the family.

To Bob's family and friends,
I am so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He will forever be in my memories of all the fun times we had together on all the trail rides and hanging out at Champs!! He was truly a "cowboy" and knew his horses. He loved to dance and took every chance he got to be out on the dance floor. I'm thankful for the years we had to get to know Bob and call him our friend. God Bless and say hi to all our buds up there, Until we meet again my friend.

Bob was without a doubt, the nicest man I've ever met. With a heart as big as the Highwood Mountains, he took care of and enjoyed friends and family. You could always count on him being there if you needed help. I'll truly miss you, Cowboy Bob.

Very sorry to hear of Bob's passing. Bob was the real deal, a real cowboy who loved horses. He talked me into riding a horse at closing time at Champs one night. I remember him dancing up a storm with all the gals whenever we played Champs club, always wearing the same old hat. He was a good guy. May you rest in peace out on the heavenly range with your favorite pony.

I'm shocked to hear of Bob's passing! I'm so very sorry for his loss. I have Great memories of Bob on our trail rides. The Culbertson ones especially! No one could ride like Bob! He is the only one I know that taught his horse to count! He was so good about giving my girls buggy rides. He really was the life of the party!

Our thoughts and prayers to Bobby’s family during this difficult time.
Going back Home to Williston will never be the same without Bobby there. He always seemed to know when my family was there and would come and visit us. He would tell us all about his new adventures and I will miss that very much. He has always been there for my family through the good times and the bad.
Happy trails Bobby
