Dad loved muscle cars and any possible chance to attend a grandchild’s activity. He was so supportive, fun, dedicated, loving, kind, compassionate and authentic in every way. Dad was a member of the SUP, Sons of the Utah Pioneers. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints Dad served faithfully as a temple worker along side his brother Garth and oh how proud he was of this. Being able to share his fun outgoing personality as people showed up to attend the temple here in St.George. Many of you remember Dad in his big red chair cheering for his grandkids at all of their sporting events. We will never forget his enthusiasm for supporting any and all that we had going on. He was so proud of us in every way. Dad really enjoyed his time with his sibling’s, as they would get together often.
