Sept 8, 1933 ~ June 15, 2013|
Moylen Dean Heslop passed away June 15, 2013 after defying cancer for 27 years. Growing up in Plain City, he graduated from Weber High, Weber College, and Utah State University. He married his sweetheart, MaryOwen Hatch in the Logan Temple on April 27, 1955. After graduation he moved his family to the Bay Area, where he lived for 36 years. A successful electrical engineer, he worked in the Defense industry, holds two patents and also did post graduate work at Stanford. He spent 20 years doing family history and, at the time of his death he served as a Family Search Support Missionary.
A gentle man known for his patience, Moylen's strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ was evident in his faithful service in many church callings (scouting, bishopric, stake missionary, family history, and home teacher). A man to be emulated, he was humble, selfless, valiant, and maintained a great sense of humor to the end. He co-authored Inner Peace Through Self-Mastery, was very intelligent, and had a passion for technology and blueberries. Known for his beautiful garden, he loved helping people, and most of all, deeply loved his family.
Moylen is survived by his wife, MaryOwen, sons Brent D (Kim), Rod D (Tammy), and Kris D (Shannon), and siblings Ervin George (Hazel), Dorene (Kent) Salmond, and Carlos Henry (Mary Lou). His family includes 11 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his parents William Henry Heslop and LaVon Knight, and siblings, Lamont William (Floris), June (Alvin) Cobabe, and Weldon Andrew (Phyllis).
A viewing will be held at Anderson's Mortuary in American Fork (49 E 100 N) on Friday, June 21st from 6-8 p.m. and at the Templeview LDS Chapel (676 Eagle View Dr, Alpine) on Saturday, June 22nd from 8:45 - 9:45 a.m., where the funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Internment: Alpine City Cemetery.
