Robert was born in Denver, Colorado to Vernon & Margaret Yates. At an early

farmed the ranch. He graduated high school in 1960 from Seymour where he
met his beautiful wife Karen in 1961. RV & Karen had 3 beautiful children
Kim, Chris & Mark. In 1965 while Karen was pregnant with Kim, RV was badly
burned in a house fire and spent 6 months in the Burn Unit recovering.
Shortly after in 1966 they moved to Klein, Mt where RV loved chasing the
oil field. The family settled in Klein and never left. RV started "RV
Yates Welding Service" where he worked tell he passed away. He loved the
outdoors such as 4 wheeling, hunting, fishing and always stopping to
"smell the flowers".
His passion was welding, he loved working with everyone in the community.
He built tree guards for the city of Roundup, worked on the fire trucks
for the local fire Departments. If there was something someone needed RV
would figure out how to conquer it. He was a hard guy to hold on for sure!
