Robert Gayle Humphreys "Gayle", 73, of Lake Havasu City, Arizona, passed away on November 18, 2019. He was born to Frank and Leona Humphreys on May 2, 1946 in Durango, Colorado.

Gayle graduated from Montezuma Cortez High School and then attended Ft. Lewis College for 2 years. Gayle started his working career with MAPCO Pipeline Company, and after 28 years as Lead Pipeliner with Williams Energy, he decided that it was time to retire and enjoy living the good life.

Gayle met the love of his life, Celia, and they were united in marriage in Las Vegas, NV on October 8, 1969. Gayle lived in Cortez, CO for 58 years and then in 2004 Gayle and Celia decided to pack up and head west and found themselves moving to Lake Havasu City, AZ.

Gayle had many interests in life like gardening, having coffee with the boys, fishing and hunting. His most cherished of all was spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren. He loved his family so much!

He was preceded in death by parents, Frank and Leona Humphreys; siblings, Buddy, Alys, Joanne Belcher, Karyl McCutcheon, and Artys Habig.

Gayle is survived by his beloved wife of 50 years, Celia; son, Robert W. Humphreys of Bookings, OR; daughters, Kimberly Taylor of Monticello, UT and Candace Shedd of Lake Havasu City, AZ; brothers, Frank and George Humphreys, both of Cortez, CO; 6 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
