Dean Mac Lamont, born to Idaho pioneers Elmo and Nellie Lamont in Ashton, Idaho, on Jan. 2, 1920, has found his final resting place with God on Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2012.
Dean Lamont was raised on the family ranch in Lamont, Idaho, and attended college at Idaho State University.
Dean married Marjorie Corley on Aug. 17, 1941, in Glendale, Calif. Shortly thereafter, he joined the service and was stationed in India during WWII. Upon his return, he supported his family as a boilermaker by trade for over 30 years.
Dean was an active and proud member of the Masonic Temple in Idaho Falls. He greatly enjoyed the Masons, rode in many parades as a member of the El Korah Shriners Kart-Kore Unit and spent time at the Elks Club. When he wasn't working or with the Shriners, Dean loved fishing, hunting, camping and his classic boat. His greatest joy was spending his retirement years traveling alongside his bride.
Dean is survived by his wife of 71 years, Marjorie Lamont; daughters, Denice Lamont, Christy Lamont and Sandy (Pat) Records; and sons, Jim (Irene) Lamont and David (Lisa) Lamont. He is also survived by many adoring grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Dean was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Ben Lamont; and grandsons, Brett Lamont and Shane Lamont.
Dean was very fortunate to have loving and attentive caregivers during the last year of his life. The family would like to extend its utmost appreciation and gratitude to Ana Maria Hernandez, Serenity Hospice, Patti Hartley and Robert Viliunas for the loving care they provided.
Services will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, at the Masonic Lodge, 225 S. Capital Ave. in Idaho Falls.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Shriners Hospital for Children, Office of Development, 1275 Fairfax Road, Salt Lake City, UT 84103.
