Robert L. Prill, youngest child of Ralph and Bertha (Carpenter) Prill, was born January 15, 1931 at their farm home northeast of Page, Nebraska. His siblings were brother Don and sisters Margaret and Marian.

Bob attended District 23 rural school through the 8th grade. He graduated from Page High School in 1948. In April 1952 Bob was inducted into the 832nd Engineering Aviation Battalion at Beale Air Force Base in California and stationed at Fort Wainwright Military Base in Fairbanks, Alaska before being honorably discharged in February 1954. From 1954 to 1959, Bob was employed by the Metz Baking Company, Dobson Roberts Construction Co. and White Motor Company.

Bob married the love of his life, Brenda Beelaert on May 24, 1959. Their first home was northwest of Page. In 1963 they purchased a farm south of Stuart residing there for 50 years. The Lord blessed their marriage with five children, Scott Robert, Shane Jay, Shelley Faye, Samuel Harry, and Amy Lee.

For years Bob farmed, raised cattle, and had a milking operation. In 1983, Bob purchased a windshield repair business and repaired windshields in a large area for 23 years. He enjoyed restoring antique wooden windmills and gas pumps and collecting antiques.

Bob will be remembered for his loyalty and the love for his wife and family. He was a faithful friend known for his dry sense of humor. The impact he had on the lives of those around him will leave a lasting legacy of hard work and dedication. He always strived for excellence in all he did and will be greatly missed but always remembered with love & respect.

Bob is survived by his wife, Brenda; his children, Scott Prill of Arlington, TX, Shane Prill & wife Kianne of Wichita, KS, Shelley & husband Clarence Boden of Salina, KS, Sam & wife Gaila Prill of Rapid City, SD and Amy Prill of Houston, TX; eleven grandchildren, Josh Boden & wife Jacqueline, Jerod Boden, Justin Boden, Joel Boden, Lianna Austin, Mariclaire Prill, Merrilee Prill, Lauren Prill, Luke Prill, Gabrielle Prill, Winston Prill; great-grandson, Austin Boden; sister-in-law, Armetta Prill; numerous nieces and nephews and a host of friends.

Preceding Bob in death were his parents, Ralph and Bertha Prill; brother, Don Prill; and sisters, Marian Van Horn and Margaret Fischer.
