Robert Soults

September 9, 1935 — September 20, 2022

Adair, Iowa

Robert “Bud” Soults, son of Marion and Alice Whetstone Soults, was born in Bedford, Iowa on September 9, 1935. In March of 1936 he moved with his family to the farm northwest of Adair, Iowa. He attended school at Grant Township # 5 and graduated from Adair High School in 1954. He then attended Iowa State University, majoring in agronomy, and graduating in 1958. He was in the Army ROTC program at Iowa State and was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant at his graduation. He then served in the United States Army Signal Corps from 1958 - 1964, spending most of that time in Germany.

Bud then returned to Iowa and began farming with his father. He made innovative changes and worked tirelessly as the farm evolved into a successful hog management operation. His time in Germany gave him a desire to travel back there often. He also had a passion for hi-fi and music, was an avid reader, and truly enjoyed his German cars.

Preceding him in death were his parents, Marion and Alice Soults. Survivors include his sisters Jeanne Lutze of Blacksburg VA and Maurene (Gary) Kleven of Cincinnati OH. He has two nieces, Jody (Matt) Winkelmann and Paula (Mark) Bell, both of Cincinnati OH. He has one nephew, Mark (Liza) Kleven of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. His grand- nieces are Abby and Chloe Bell, grand-nephews are Josh Bell, Jack and Sam Winkelmann.

Memorials can be made in his name to Dalmanutha Cemetery, c/o Thompson Township Clerk, 2228 300th ST, Casey IA 50048 or to the charity of your choice.
