Robert J. Oliver

Dec. 3, 1968 – Sept. 29, 2021


Robert J. “Bob” Oliver passed away Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2021, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born Dec. 3, 1968, in Omaha, to Dick and Lil Oliver. He married Rachel L. Riechers on June 5, 1993, in Clatonia, and raised three wonderful children. Bob lived life to the fullest, in every way possible. He enjoyed the outdoors life; hunting, fishing, camping but most of all, he enjoyed his family and friends. He was a diehard Chiefs and Royals fan and enjoyed playing shuffleboard league with his wife, Rachel. He touched the hearts of many with his warm smile and sense of humor. Bob was a graduate of Wilber Clatonia High School, was a member of the Army National Guard and was a member of the Zion Lutheran Church of Clatonia. Bob owned and operated Countertops R-Us for many years, and continued that business through his current employment with Sack Lumber Co.

He is survived by his loving wife of 28 years, Rachel Oliver; sons, Chandler Oliver (special friend, Ashley Nichols) and Gavin Oliver; daughter, Aspen Oliver; brothers, Rich (Karen) Oliver, Darrell Oliver, Mike (Codey) Oliver, Dan (Joni) Oliver; sisters, Jaimie Olson, Darlene (Ed) Slama and Chris (Kent) Linhart; brothers-in-law, Tim (Kris) Riechers, and Paul Riechers (special friend, Ann Freese); parents-in-law, John and Leora Riechers, and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, Dick and Lil Oliver; brothers, Butch Toner and James Oliver; and niece, Susan Johnson.
