Raymond DeMont (Bud) Van Noy passed away December 7, 2012 in Salt Lake City, Utah, at the age of 86.
Born in Thayne, Wyoming, he was the third child of Abrum LeGrant Van Noy and Elva Coy. The family moved to Grantsville, Utah in 1942 where Bud attended school and excelled in the sports of football and basketball for Grantsville High School. During World War II Bud enlisted in the Navy and served in the South Pacific. After returning home from the service, he attended the University of Utah and later married Margaret Judd on June 11, 1948, in the Salt Lake Temple. Bud and Margaret are the parents of four children: Margaret, Bill Ray, Robyn, and David. Bud worked at the Tooele Army Depot and at the time of his retirement in 1985 he was Chief of Quality Control. While employed he received numerous honors for his work. Bud had a sincere passion for excellence in all that he did. Building homes, in both Utah and Washington, of beauty and durability for his family became an area where this passion for perfection served him well. He was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He had a testimony of the gospel which he shared with anyone who was willing to listen. He served as Bishop of the Clark Ward in Grantsville for six years and established a great trust with the ward members. After retirement, Bud and Margaret moved to Washington State. In Washington, he served in various church callings including many years of service in the Bishop's Storehouse where he once again made long and lasting friendships.
Bud is survived by his daughters Margaret Van Noy, Robyn (Loren) Barber, as well as seven grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. He is also survived by his sisters: Shirley Worthington, Donna (Stan) Ward and a brother, Bill Van Noy.
