Robert P. “Bob” Uryniak, of Cloverdale, beloved husband, son, brother, uncle and friend, died suddenly on Saturday, October 20, 2012, three days following his 61st birthday.
Bob was a phenomenal drummer and accomplished artist whose talents will be greatly missed. He had a quiet soul and touched more lives than he ever realized.

He is survived by his wife of 29 years, Christine; his mother, Dorothy Uryniak; sister, Shirley Spiewak (Lewie); mother-in-law, Paula Saunders; sister-in-law, Susan Davis (Jimmy); and brother-in-law, Danny Saunders. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins. Finally, Bob leaves behind his beloved Yorkie, Pinkie, to “guard the house”, and his sweet cat, Gracie, both of whom loved their Daddy very much.
Bob was blessed with several friends who were with him through good times and bad, you all know who you are and how much that friendship was cherished.
