Robert (Bob) Henry Provost, 77, died peacefully in his sleep May 16, 2017.

A building contractor by trade, he had an innate ability to visualize a project from inception to completion.

He is preceded in death by parents Roger and Lorena Provost, sister Claire Cervens, daughter Laureen, and son, Dan.

Bob is survived by brother Ronald Provost, former spouse Marcia Provost, children Cathleen (David) Oyler, Tom (Jodi) Provost, Matt (Shannon) Provost, grandchildren Brittany, Clayton, Travis and Tanner, nieces and nephews.

A self-proclaimed mountain man, his ashes will be scattered above Marble, his own ‘Rocky Mountain High.’
