Lyle Grainger Obituary
1929 ~ 2018
Lyle Brown Grainger, age 88, passed away peacefully at home on September 10, 2018. He was born October 12, 1929 to Delbert Joseph and Margaret Guyon (Brown) Grainger. He was the second child in a family of four children. He graduated from South High School and attended Utah Technical College and the University of Utah.
He married Marguerite Abigail "Gail" Shea in Our Lady of Lourdes Church on October 30, 1950. She preceded him in death in January 1965. They were the parents of six children. He married Suzanne Sloan on November 19, 1965 in the Salt Lake Temple, and together they had two daughters.
He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many callings over the years.
He will always be remembered for his wonderful sense of humor. Even in his final days, he made us laugh with his wit and sarcasm. He loved his family, music - especially Stan Kenton and the big bands, a good game of golf, searching for antiques, and traveling the world (not necessarily in that order).
Preceded in death by his father, mother, first wife, brother (William "Bill"), sister (Janet Bennett), and daughter-in-law (Stephanie Cude Grainger). He is survived by his brother, Richard (Janet) Grainger, his loving wife and sweetheart of 53 years, Suzanne, his children, Julie (Robert) Hogge, Jim, Joseph (Peggy), David, Tish (Chris) Iund, Shelia (Terry) Downs, Lisa (Wayne) Peterson, and Michelle (David) Lewis; thirty-two grandchildren; fifty great-grandchildren; and 1 great-great-grandchild.
Funeral services will be held Friday, September 14, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at the Orchard 2nd Ward Chapel, 3707 South 800 West, Bountiful. A viewing will be held Thursday evening at Russon Brothers Mortuary 295 North Main St., Bountiful, from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m., and Friday from 9:45 - 10:45 at the church prior to the funeral. Interment at the Bountiful City Cemetery.
