Robert George App Jr., a.k.a. "Robbie," "Rob" and "Papa App," made his way to heaven unexpectedly on Sunday, March 18, 2018.  
After growing up in the heart of Michigan, in Saginaw, he graduated from St. Stephen High School, where he played football and basketball. After learning culinary arts at Northwood Institute in Midland, Mich., he decided to give his daughter greater opportunities and moved to Colorado just before Jordan entered the world.
 One of the lessons he learned at school was how to rummage through any pantry and create an amazing meal out of seemingly random ingredients. But the most important lesson he learned at culinary school was not to try to make a living as a chef.  
Instead, he used his knowledge and understanding of the food industry to support his family by representing Sysco Foods for 20  
years selling groceries and restaurant supplies to his many friends who operate restaurants in the pointy lands of Colorado.  
Always an advocate for the quality of life in Georgetown, he vigorously fought the paving of Guanella Pass Road - that is until he acquired the first of his Porsches.   
Shortly thereafter, Jordan began studying geology and paleontology at the University of Wyoming, and a new passion was born in Rob. He would race like a maniac in his Porsche from Georgetown to make every U of W home football game, listening to the likes of Neil Young, Widespread Panic and the Grateful Dead as he piloted his Porsche (at high speeds) to Laramie.   
A longtime resident of Georgetown, Rob was able to give Jordan the gift of growing up in this small, tight-knit community while he played bass and sang with his band, the O'Fenders, and his friends as often as possible.  
He was well known in the community and leaves behind hundreds of local residents who loved him and called him their friend. He was highly involved in community activities and a staunch supporter of Clear Creek High School.
He is survived by his loving daughter, Jordan Christine; his furiously loyal dog, Bear; and Carmel the Cat. Other survivors are his two older sisters, Cindy App (Robert) and Cathy Palmer (David) and their two children Robert and Sarah Palmer. He is also survived by Jordan's mother, Kristen Morrison Farquhar, as well as aunts Marilyn Fahey and Greta Strong, and cousins Laura Fahey Alonso (Javier), Maureen Fahey Bowers (David) and Robert Strong (Karen).   
Rob joins his parents, Dr. Robert App and Sue Ann Strong App, cousin Bill Strong, beloved cat Karma, and canine companions Emily Fox, Foster and Layla in crossing the Rainbow Bridge.  
Please consider commemorating Rob with a contribution to Jordan's college fund. Contributions can be mailed to Jordan App, P.O. Box 501, Georgetown, CO 80444 or can be made online via
