Arthur Devern Stowe

1931 ~ 2013
Gunnison, UT-In a small log cabin in Centerfield, Utah on April 3, 1931 Arthur Devern Stowe joined the family of Arthur Bernard (who had just months previously passed away) & Velma Veona Stowe. His love of the mountains, hunting, fishing, and just enjoying the beauties of nature began in this little mountain valley and flourished throughout his earthly journey. With the love of 7 siblings (Arthur, Keith, Garth, Ila, Vonza, Lee, & Lonnie) this small band took on life, learning and growing together.
He served his country honorably in the Korean War from 1951 - 1953. In May of 1953 he married his sweetheart Ruth Renee' Olsen. Together they raised and loved their family Shelley (Dallas), Keven, LuAnn (Ryan), Byren (Cheryl), and Doug (Kathy). They traveled to many places together, but made their home in Kearns, and later Tooele.
Art (Dee to so many) developed many skills during his life time, electrician, carpet installation, gardening, landscaping, and woodworking. With each task his signature ethic of doing whatever was required to the best of his ability was always evident. With the same tenacity and no training in keyboard or computer he added genealogy to this list of passions adding over 4,000 names to the PAF data base as he contributed information his sister Ila had researched. Pictures were added to as many names as he could collect providing as accurate of a record as possible.
His desire of taking his sweet heart to the Temple was realized in August of 2011. Family has always been his greatest love and he has a posterity who loves and will miss him deeply; 20 Grandchildren 25 Great Grandchildren as well as nieces, nephews, and extended family. Preceded in death by his parents; and brothers Arthur, Keith, & Lee. On April 2, 2013 he left this life as he had lived it, quietly, peacefully, and with dignity at home in Gunnison, Utah the place that was always home to his heart.
