GUTHRIE, ROBERT  
ROBERT GUTHRIE Robert Lee Guthrie, 87, a 60-year resident of Las Vegas, passed away June 21, 2016. Robert served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean War as a medic. He was a self-made mechanical engineer and worked for EG&G for more than 40 years. He was well-known for his great intelligence and his witty sense of humor. It was known by everyone he knew that he could fix anything that had a part or engine. Robert was always willing to help a neighbor or friend with anything that needed to be repaired. If he didn't know how to fix something, he would read a book or take a class so he could fix it himself. Friends said, "If Bob Guthrie couldn't fix it, it wasn't broken." Robert spent countless volunteer hours with scouting, little league baseball and the City of Las Vegas as a member of the Planning Commission. He continued coaching baseball long after his children played. He loved his family, baseball and a good beer. Robert was preceded in death by his parents; and his wife, Patricia. He is survived by his two sons, Kenneth and Charles; his eight grandchildren; and his longtime companion and partner-in-crime, Wilma Littleford. Memorial will be at 3 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 4, at Palm Mortuary, 1325 N. Main St., Las Vegas. "W7VIP is silent key."
