He was born March 25, 1971 to Norman Wheeler and Linda Josephine Kunka Preece of Lindon, Utah. David grew up in Lindon and graduated in 1989 from Pleasant Grove High School where he excelled in academics, football and track. David served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Columbus, Ohio Mission. Upon his return, he attended Brigham Young University where he earned dual bachelor degrees in Mechanical Engineering and in Computer Information Systems. He was hand-selected to help build the LDS Sunday School Sesquicentennial Time Capsule which is on display in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building at Temple Square until its opening in 2049. David then went on to receive his Juris Doctorate from BYU's J. Rueben Clark School of Law. David had a robust legal career including work at Knobbe, Martin in California, Kirton McConkie in Salt Lake City, serving as Securities Director for the State of Utah, and at Clayton, Howarth & Cannon also in Salt Lake City before starting his own practice in 2012 in conjunction with Tech Law Ventures in Lehi, Utah and Stevens Law Group of San Jose, California.

His church service included Elder's Quorum President and serving as a counselor in multiple bishoprics. His favorite church calling was that of Sunday School teacher to the 14 & 15 year olds. He had a deep love and testimony of Christ and the Church. David was a powerful force to his family, friends and those he worked with. He was passionate about motorcycling, technology, sports and a slate of hobbies and interests. Above all however, the most important parts of his life were his children. David's unique and legendary personal gift was the ability to make others laugh and to help them see their own gifts, talents, and beauty.

Price, Beverley Ann Cole - Murray  
Salt Lake City, Utah-Early in the morning of July 2, 2015, surrounded by her loving family, Beverley Ann Cole Price died peacefully in her sleep. Beverley was born February 22, 1927, to Wilford Roscoe Chase Cole and Wanda Bake Cole in Logan, Utah. In infancy, her family moved to California, where she lived until she met her eternal sweetheart. She earned an Associate's Degree in Nutrition from Pasadena City College, and a Bachelor's Degree in Home Economics from UCLA. After graduation, during a visit to the BYU campus, she met and fell instantly in love with Jack Rex Price. They were married and sealed in the Logan Temple June 5, 1951. After she was married, she was employed by Utah Power and Light demonstrating new kitchen equipment, including on TV broadcasts - some of the earliest cooking shows on KSL! During the first few years, the newlyweds lived in Vernal, Elko, and Grand Junction, before they settled permanently in Salt Lake City, Beverley was a loving and caring mother and homemaker, and was devoted to her church, where she served as Relief Society President, Primary President, and many other Ward and Stake callings. In 1983, she and Jack left to serve a full time mission for the LDS church to the Cook Islands. Second only to raising five children, this was to be the greatest adventure of their lives. She had a lifelong passion for the arts, including music, painting, literature, and theatre. After her children were grown, she started a Master's Degree in Art History at the University of Utah, which was almost complete when it was tragically interrupted by a stroke. She was a proud member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers. She served as a docent at the DUP Museum, as well as at the Beehive House and the Brigham Young Farmhouse. She had a consuming passion for the finer things, including antiques, clothing and accessories, and above all… Chocolate! She had less enthusiasm for fishing, camping, and BYU sports, in spite of Dad's best efforts. She is survived by her sons Jeffrey (Trudy) and Roger (Shawn), her daughters Janet (Jerry), Mary Ann (Keith) and Dori (Patrick), her grandchildren Jesse, Jacob, Erin, Jamie, Natalie, McKenna, Alisa, Elizabeth, Benjamin, Zoe, Sophia, and Rowan, and her great-grandchildren Zoey and Henry. She was preceded in death by her husband Jack, her infant daughter Gloria, and her sister Mary Ellen. The family wishes to thank the many professionals who helped through the end of her life, particularly her home health care aide Maria, and the Quality Services hospice team: Dr. McPherson, Chelsea, Alexis, Tricia, and Ruth. Thanks and God bless you. Funeral services will be held at Valley View Ward (2000 East and 3900 South in Salt Lake) on Thursday, July 9 at 10:00 a.m. Friends and family may visit from 6:00-8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 8 at the Murray Memorial Mortuary (5850 S. 900 E.), or one hour prior to services at the ward house.
