Robert Reece Ulrich, age 58, lost his three year battle with secondary cancer caused from two previous and successful battles with cancer. He was surrounded by loving family. Rob was born on Feb. 4, 1957, in Lancaster, Calif., to Robert P. Ulrich Jr. and Gail Stansberry. He lived in Mojave, Calif., attending grades K - 12 at Mojave Unified School, where his grandfather was superintendent. On June 28, 1975, he married the love of his life and childhood friend, Cheri Corwin. They were married 40 years and totally devoted to each other. They had two sons: Robert John Ulrich and Craig Corwin Ulrich. The family of four enjoyed many family outings in their motor home, making many trips to Mexico and around the Western States. In 1983, Rob and Cheri moved to Tehachapi, Calif., where Rob's Construction Company took off. In 1995, Rob and Cheri followed their dream of living in Alaska, where they enjoyed many happy years. Rob's construction business continued to be successful in Alaska. Rob and Cheri continued to travel at every opportunity enjoying new sites and new foods. Rob is survived by his loving wife, Cheri; two sons, Robert (Crystal) of Alaska and Dr. Craig Ulrich of Reno, Nev.; his parents, Bob and Gail Ulrich of Mojave; and his sisters, Bonnie (Mark) of Mojave and Kathleen (Larry) of Oregon. He is also survived by six grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews, who adored their Uncle Rob; as well as his brother-like cousin, Harold Ulrich Jr. His special sense of humor, along with the annual Ulrich Family Christmas letter, will be greatly missed by family, many friends and clients who depended on him for all their building and repair needs. Per Rob's request there will be no services.
