Lawrence Timothy Dowd 1924 ~ 2007
Oh! I've Slipped The surly bonds of Earth And danced the skies On laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I've climbed, And joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split-clouds And done hundred things You have not dreamed of-wheeled And soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there, I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air... Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace, Where never lark, nor even eagle flew- And while, with silent, lifting mind I've trod The high un-trespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand and touched the face of God. -John Gillespie Magee Larry left the bonds of earth July 21, 2007 surrounded by his loving family.

William Stewart Glenn 2/19/1931 ~ 10/26/2017
Stewart, a devoted husband, father and grandfather, peacefully rejoined his Heavenly Father on October 26, 2017. He was 86. He was the fourth surviving child of Olive and William Glenn, and the first of Olive’s children to be born in a hospital, in Cardston, Alberta, Canada. The family moved to Logan, Utah when he was six, where he was raised in a close-knit immediate and extended family. After earning his bachelor’s degree in business from Utah State University, Stewart joined the Army in 1950; he served as a paratrooper and learned to fly airplanes and helicopters, earning his commercial pilot’s license. While stationed at Fort Ord in Monterey, CA, Stewart met Edythe Greaves from Portland, OR and they were married in the Salt Lake Temple on August 9, 1957. Stewart worked as an air traffic controller for the FAA in Salt Lake Air Route Center for over 27 years before retiring in 1985. After retirement, he drove a special needs school bus in Bountiful for many years. When the Bountiful Temple was completed in 1995, he became a temple worker. Stewart and Edythe lived in Bountiful for over 55 years, recently moving to American Fork to be closer to their daughter. He leaves behind his beloved Edythe and brother, Kay. Stewart was a devoted father to his children: Timothy (Teresa Hayes) of Heber City, Daniel (Diana Bond) of Yucaipa, CA, and Brooks (Michael Wynn) of American Fork. He was grandfather to 13 and great-grandfather to seven. We trust there is a happy reunion of many dear relatives and friends in Heaven welcoming Stewart home.

Stillman Jacob HardingOctober 24, 1918 - March 23, 2017
Our beloved father, Stillman Jacob Harding, passed away 23 March 2017 at the age of 98 in his home in Willard, Utah. He was born 24 Oct 1918 in Willard to Ettye Isabelle Dayley and Benjamin Dwight Harding. He was the seventh of eight children. The flood of 1923 caused the family to move to Brigham City for a few years before returning to Willard where he remained until after graduating from Box Elder High School in 1936. He began working for the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) which had been assigned to the Willard area due to the flood in 1936. The initial work was to build a dike north of town and divert the canyon water to the dike. They then established a camp at the foot of Willard Peak and terraced the hillsides in hopes of preventing another flood. In 1937, he was assigned to drive trucks and supplies from Salt Lake to various CCC camps all over Utah and Nevada. Next he was assigned to the CCC Camp in Jericho where he dug post holes, built corrals, drove trucks and was eventually trained as a medic/hospital orderly and worked in the hospital at camp. After 2 1/2 years in the CCC, he was forced to "retire." He attended Weber State College for two quarters, paying his way by working for the National Youth Association at the college. He also worked various odd jobs around Willard. In 1940 he joined the Utah National Guard—222nd Field Artillery, Battery A, in Brigham City, Utah. Their first assignment, after being federalized, was in San Luis Obispo, California. They were here when Pearl Harbor was bombed and the United States joined the fighting in World War II. For two years he served stateside with the Utah National Guard. In October 1942, he was sent to flight school and became a pilot assigned to fly B-24s in the European Theater. During his military service, Stillman married "the girl next door." Madalynne Fae Duvall Cook had moved across the street from his home in Willard when she was 7 and he was 11. They married 7 January 1944 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple, while he was on a weekend military pass and she had the same weekend off from nurse training. Dad's first B-24 crew crashed during a training flight in Pocatello, Idaho killing two crew members. He was then assigned to a crew that flew their B-24 to Italy by way of Nebraska, Florida, Trinidad, Brazil, West Africa, Tunisia and finally a temporary base in Gioia del Colle, Italy. Their fourth sortie was a mission to bomb the Marshaling Yards in Weiner Neustadt, Austria. It was on this mission that he lost his left thumb and almost his left leg. He spent the next thirteen months in hospitals. He was told he would never walk again without his leg brace and crutches. We all know that was wrong. He was discharged from the service July 1945. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Purple Heart, and the Air Medal. He and his wife lived in Ogden where Stillman worked for the Maid 'o Clover Dairy for several months before obtaining a job with the Federal Aviation Agency working as an Air Traffic Controller in Salt Lake City. He helped write the manuals and set up a training center for air traffic controllers in Salt Lake. In 1961 he moved his family to Alexandria, Virginia while he worked in Washington DC. He retired in 1971 after 36 years of service to the FAA. Moving his family back to Utah he lived briefly in Ogden before moving to Salt Lake City and working for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Editing Department. Among other things, he helped write and edit class manuals of all types. His last major job was as editor of the new green hymnbook published in 1985. This included adding a scripture reference for each hymn. He retired a second time in 1987. In 1996, Stillman and Madalynne built their dream home in Willard, Utah on a piece of his family's original farm. He has lived in Willard ever since. Stillman loved traveling in his self built motorhome, as well as those commercially built which he later purchased. He had a beautiful tenor voice, which he probably inherited from his Welsh Ancestors in Willard who helped start the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. He loved to sing and his children loved to hear him sing. He loved his family and he loved his church. Stillman spent many hours in service for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served as the first bishop of the Orchard 2nd Ward in Bountiful, Utah and as the first bishop of the Mount Vernon Ward in Alexandria, Virginia. He also taught many classes, was a member of Stake High Councils, served in many positions in the Young Men's Mutual Improvement Association (YMMIA), and was a stake missionary. He and his wife Madalynne served a full-time mission in the Washington Tacoma Mission from 2001 to 2003. He served as a Temple ordinance worker in the Salt Lake City Temple for many, many years. We think his favorite calling was one he began at the age of 92 when he was called to teach the 11 boys in Primary. He said, many times, his goal was to instill a testimony of Joseph Smith into the soul of each boy so they would never have room to doubt that Joseph was a true prophet in this dispensation. He was preceded in death by his wife Madalynne in 2004; his parents; six siblings – Erma, Dale, Cora, Margaret, Eliza & Elva; his daughter Lynette; and his granddaughters, Tanja, Tamilie, ToiLyn, Staci & Starlynn. He is survived by his children, Jaelynne (Kent) Hathaway, Richard S. Harding, Marilyn (Jim) Stephens, Sheralyn (Pete) Barger, Karalyn (Lynn) Dummer, Lynae Burke, and Robert C. (Lisa) Harding; 26 grandchildren, 47 great-grandchildren, 6 great-great grandchildren, his sister Nadine Haun; and a host of nieces, nephews and wonderful friends. We invite family and friends to a funeral service celebrating his life on Friday, March 31 at 11:00 am in the Willard 4th Ward building at 80 No. 100 W. in Willard, Utah. A viewing will be held Thursday March 30th from 6-8 pm in the Willard 4th Ward building and again Friday March 31st from 9:30-10:30 prior to the service. Burial will follow in the Willard City Cemetery with Military Honors Accorded by the Combined Veterans from Box Elder County. The family wishes to thank Intermountain Home Care Hospice and the caregivers for their loving care and help during Dad's last few weeks of life.

Richard I. Haggin "Noogie"
Richard I. "Dick" Haggin passed away on the evening of March 25, 2009 after almost 85 years of embodying the spirit of his favorite saying: "Though others may scoff and jest, a life of service is the best."Richard defined service through his actions toward others. Family, friends, sometimes even strangers... Those who knew him know the truth: Richard Haggin, quite simply, was a man who could be counted upon. Generous almost to a fault, he was cheerful in his desire to help anyone in any way he could. Plus, he was a funny guy who did funny things. The story of our dad gamely attempting to row a boat with the anchor still overboard is one of many classics. An outdoors man our dad was not. A fixture at the old Salt Palace for Golden Eagles games, Richard loved hockey especially if Lyle Bradley or Wayne Gretzky was playing. He loved the music of Mickey Newbury and Johnny Cash. He loved his friends: the Listuls, the Montoyas, the Pecks, the Halls, the Bradleys, and the many, many others too numerous too mention here. He loved his wife, our mother, Mary Jo, who preceded him in death and he loved his son Douglas who went before him as well. And he loved us: Dan, David, Richard, Ron and Chris- we saw it in his eyes every single time he looked upon us. Dick was one of the good guys and though the world will continue to turn, it's a world that's just a little less special without our dad. The Haggin family expresses our deepest thanks to those who cared for our father in his final days: the staff at Davis Hospital, Vista Care and the fine folks at McDougal Funeral Homes where friends may gather on Monday evening, March 30, 2009, to celebrate Dick's life from the hours of 6-8 p.m. Funeral services will follow on Tuesday, March 31, 2009 at 12 noon also at McDougal Funeral Home. Interment, Mt. Calvary Catholic Cemetery Mausoleum.

Blake Guy Jones 1936 ~ 2015
Blake Guy Jones was born March 23, 1936, in Clawson, Utah, the son of Iva Oviatt and Clifford Jones. He died Jan. 19, 2015, in Heber City after battling cancer for several months. Blake was a confident but modest man whose love for family and friends bolstered many lives through his strength, laughter and knowledge. His Emery County upbringing made him a steadfast Utah native, and though he spent a majority of his life in the Park City, Salt Lake and Heber City areas, his favorite place was the Boulder Mountains of southern Utah. Blake first came to live in Park City as a 5-year-old boy whose father found work in the silver mines, but his family later moved to Salt Lake City. His father died in a industrial accident when Blake was 7 and he and his three sisters were raised by his mother in Sugar House, which at that time was a rural and historic suburb of Salt Lake. Summers and long breaks from school would find Blake back in his grandmother's Emery County home where he would explore and enjoy the backcountry of one of Utah's still remote areas. With his mother's blessings Blake enlisted in the U.S. Marines at the age of 16, and he spent three years as a radio operator during the Korean War. When that conflict ended he came back to the States and worked with the national reserves to fulfill his military service commitment. Much of that time was with the Air National Guard, where he served in a number of capacities until 1998, when he retired as a captain in the U.S. Air Force. Using his radar skills, Blake in 1968 took a job with the Federal Aviation Administration as an air traffic controller in Salt Lake. He held that position until 1981, when he and thousands of other controllers participated in the PATCO strike to protest their employment conditions and packages. Blake rebuilt his business career and became a successful agent with Farmers Insurance, serving Salt Lake and Park City. Blake was father to five children: Clifford (Linda) Jones of Saline, Michigan; Vincent (Beth) Jones of Fort Worth, Texas; Nikki (Eric) Ransom of Westerville, Ohio; Amy Morris of Seattle and Brian (Sarah) Morris of Salt Lake. He has 10 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren, all of whom he adored. Blake had three sisters: Barbara Lefler (deceased), Colleen Cory and Kathy Aldred of Salt Lake. Blake and his wife Cathy Maddaloni had front-row seats in the growth of Park City as a major ski and tourist mecca. They joined lives in Park City in 1980 and watched the area develop, living for a time in Park Meadows then moving in the mid-1980s to pastoral land on Old Ranch Road, where they enjoyed the views of the Wasatch Mountains and their dear friends and neighbors. As Park City grew, so did Blake and Cathy's desire for a life change that would take them to Seattle where they operated two pizza franchises. They devoted their time to that business venture from 1997 to 2008, when they retired and moved back to Utah, settling in the Heber Valley. Travel was a hallmark for Blake and Cathy, who visited Turkey, Greece, Italy, Russia, Australia, Scotland, Ireland, Hawaii, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, the Panama Canal, their San Diego getaway, and most importantly, America's National Parks. Blake was a thoughtful man who enjoyed reading and learning about history, particularly the U.S. Civil War and World War II. He was proud of his country yet cast a critical but studied eye toward events and politics. His manner of thought was respectful and mindful of others. He had lifelong friends who will forever cherish their memories of him. Military services will be held Monday, Feb. 9, at 11 a.m. at Camp Williams, where his ashes will be interred. A short reception will be held following the services, and a celebration of his life will be held the following day, Feb. 10, at the Elks Lodge in Park City from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Arrangements have been made with Olpin-Hoopes Funeral Home in Heber City. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Civil War Trust, whose mission is to preserve and protect Civil War Battlefields. Contact the trust at email@example.com or by calling 800-298-7878.

Leonard Bruce Klopfenstein 1929 ~ 2016
Leonard Bruce Klopfenstein, (Klop) was born November 25, 1929 in Aberdeen, South Dakota and passed away peacefully in his home in Pendleton, Oregon on March 12, 2016 with loved ones at his side. Leonard was the youngest child of Peter & Florence Klopfenstein, having three brothers, Ralph (deceased), Wayne (Seattle, WA), and Bob (Seattle, WA). Upon graduating from Aberdeen Central High School in 1948, his patriotism and love for his country led him to enlist in the Marine Corps during the Korean Conflict. It was during this time that he was given his life-long nickname "Klop". Klop began his Aviation career as a fueler for an air mechanic in Rapid City, South Dakota. Soon, he was the guy that climbed up on the roof of the hanger, and by hand-set, gave the clear to all incoming and outgoing aircraft. He worked for Western Airlines and later became an Air Traffic Controller at Oakland International. He retired in Aviation Data Processing at Salt Lake City International. During those years, he made a lot of friends, many of which became life-long and considered these relationships special and of great value to him. Klop stayed active all his life. He did his morning exercises without fail, enjoyed his home and gardening, wood working and playing with his "Flight Simulator". Also, he was an avid Utah Jazz fan. He loved solving problems, whether they were mechanical, technical or personal. His methodical approach to all left very few unresolved. Klop considered himself quite the handy-man and would boast about being a "Jack of All Trades", but first and foremost, he was a family man. It was a rare occasion for him to miss a weekend BBQ, family reunion or wedding, often times being called upon to be videographer of the event. Klop was preceded in death by his son Michael KIopfenstein and is survived by sons Monte Beckman (Pendleton, OR), Murray Beckman (Portland, OR), Nick White (Salt Lake City, UT), daughter Jaime Layden (Sandy, UT) and grandchildren Jared, Dale, Levi, Isaac, Walker, Joshua, Megan, Jade and Dylan along with a host of great and great-great grandkids as well.
