David Russell Penrose Obituary
1958 ~ 2017
Our beloved husband, father, brother, son, uncle and friend, David Russell Penrose passed away March 30th, 2017 after an unexpected cardiac/neurologic event. Born July 10, 1958 in Salt Lake City to Shirley and Russell Penrose.
David graduated from Hillcrest High School and BYU. He received a B.S. Degree in Family Financial Planning and Counseling. He worked in his chosen field for 29 years, most recently for TIAA as a financial advisor.
He served an honorable mission for the LDS church in the Chile Osorno Mission. He married his sweetheart Sheri Myles in the Salt Lake City Temple on December 3, 1988.
After their marriage David and Sheri lived in the Boston area for three years then moved to Cary, North Carolina where they lived for seven years during which time they became parents to their three beloved sons Ryan, Mitchell and Nicholas. They have been living in Salt Lake Valley since 1999.
David was a talented musician, singing in his ward choir as well as playing trumpet in the Murray Concert Band. He was a great athlete, excelling in wrestling and competing in cross country running in his high school years. In his early fifties he rekindled his passion for running, continually improving his marathon times until he was able to qualify for the Boston Marathon, which he was planning to run on April 17th. He was an avid gardener with a green thumb, which enabled him to have a beautiful garden and enjoy the bounty of the earth.
David loved his family dearly and cherished time together vacationing, hiking, riding bikes and going on other adventures. He spent a great amount of time supporting his son's activities and teaching them important life lessons. He helped them become talented musicians and supported their efforts in becoming Eagle Scouts. He loved Sheri and his boys immensely. David loved the Lord and was very dedicated to his many callings within the LDS church.
David was preceded in death by his sisters Pamela, Deborah and Denise. He is survived by his parents Russell and Shirley Penrose, wife Sheri Myles Penrose, Sons Ryan, Mitchell and Nicholas Penrose, brothers Kevan (Sidney) Penrose, Greg (Caroline) Penrose, Ron (Leslie) Penrose, and sister Sherrilyn (Cody) Hawkes.
