Obituary Condolences

Jack Monson Bangerter 1925 ~ 2008 BOUNTIFUL - Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather Jack Monson Bangerter (Grandad) passed peacefully surrounded by his beautiful bride, Connie, and many other family members July 31, 2008 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Jack was born March 11, 1925 in Bountiful, Utah. He was one of five children born to John Christian and Grace Lucille Monson Bangerter. He married his eternal companion and best friend, Connie Thompson on April 22, 1947 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Together they raised eight wonderful children. Jack was a vibrant, hard working, patriotic, and spiritual giant. He attended Harvard, Cornell, and the University of Utah. He was a veteran and served as an officer in World war II, enlisting in the Navy at age 17. He also served his community as a Utah State Senator for 12 years. He was the President of J.C. Bangerter and Sons Inc. most of his career. Jack loved the gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He faithfully fulfilled many callings including Mission President of the Nebraska Omaha Mission, Bishop, teacher, and home teacher. Through his callings he brought many members to the gospel and loved to help all of those in his stewardship. Jack loved his fellow man and in turn was loved by all who knew him either through his church callings or his community service. He is survived by his loving bride, Connie Thompson Bangerter, their eight children, Juliet (Lane Martin), Peggy (Vaughn Hyde), Paul (Leslie), Mark, Sandra (Dan Rast), Claudia (Steve Allen), Jeannee (Kevin Elder), Elizabeth (Curtis Croft), 30 grandchildren, and 44 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister, Katherine Goodfellow and brothers, Douglas, Frank, and Jerry Bangerter. We give special thanks to all who cared for Grandad in his declining days, particularly family members and the staff at the University of Utah Hospital. We will miss his strong testimony, his inspiring strong voice, his devotion to missionary work and his great love for his bride and family. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m., Monday, August 4, 2008 at the Bountiful 34th Ward Chapel, 500 North 1200 East.
