Hansen, J. Keith - Salt Lake City  
1918 ~ 2015 Our beloved father and grandfather passed away on February 28, 2015. Keith was born July 2, 1918 (age 96). He was the 3rd son and 5th child of Jacob and Hettie Howell Hansen. He is survived by his three sons (Greg from Honolulu, Brent from San Diego and Jeff, from Springville, Utah), and nine grandchildren. He was born in Bear River, Utah where his mother died in childbirth. He had two brothers and two sisters that all predeceased him. His father had him go live with his cousins at a young age and he ran away from home at 14 to Jackson Hole where he was a cowboy of sorts, lassoing wild horses for a living and jumping trains for transportation. He played football at BYU and semi pro baseball. He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and faithfully filled many callings including an LDS mission to South Africa and ward clerk for many years. He served in the US Army until a knee injury ended his career and he returned to complete his accounting schooling prior to obtaining his CPA. He went on to found the accounting firm of Hansen, Barnett and Maxwell which became the largest local firm in the state that bore his name until a recent buyout by national firm Eide Bailey. He was married to Norma Hughes Hansen to whom he was loving and supportive to until she passed away a month ago. In the past few years he incurred several health challenges but repeatedly bounced back after rehab, surprising his doctors and family members. This was consistent with his life-resilient to the end. In January he fell and broke his hip and struggled mightily to recover, but when he learned that his beloved Norma had passed away while he was in rehab, he finally seemed to let go and slowly declined over the past few weeks. They had enjoyed their time together and traveled often to Idaho and California. A service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday March 3rd at the Wasatch Lawn Funeral Home, 3401 Highland Drive in Salt Lake City. He will be buried at that location after the service where friends may call one hour prior to services.

Howe, Rowena Alexander - Salt Lake City  
1922 ~ 2015 Rowena Howe passed away peacefully on February 25, 2015 surrounded by her loving family. She was born December 21, 1922, in Montrose, Colorado, to Lavone S. and James R. Alexander. They moved to Salt Lake City in 1933 where Rowena graduated from the University of Utah in 1943 with a B.A. degree in Home Economics. She was an active member of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, Delta Eta chapter, serving as its president in 1942-43. In July, 1943, Rowena demonstrated her adventurous spirit by joining the WAVES. She served her country in San Francisco, Boston, New York, Georgia, and North Dakota as a Disbursing Officer, Lt. (j.g.), until April of 1946. On May 14 of that year she married William C. (Bill) Howe in Salt Lake City, and moved with him to the San Francisco Bay area, where their first two children were born. They returned to Salt Lake in 1956 and a third child completed their family. Rowena and Bill were happily married for 66 years. They lived in the house they built for their family in Salt Lake for 55 of those years. While Rowena was a skilled and devoted homemaker, she never lost her taste for adventure. She and Bill traveled the US and the world together and she took memorable trips with other friends as well. She stayed in a grass hut in Bali, rode elephants and camels in India and Egypt, and photographed tribesmen in Papua, New Guinea. She was one of the early American tourists in China, visiting in 1982. Rowena's love of travel was matched only by her passion for photography. She took - and meticulously catalogued - thousands of photographs of everything from exotic places to family dinners, close-ups of flowers and icicles to long shots of mountains and sunsets. She loved to play tennis and bridge, was an avid reader and a great cook, and because she knew how to be a good friend, she had many of them. Rowena was a charter member of Mount Olympus Presbyterian Church, where she served as a deacon and an elder; later she became a member of Wasatch Presbyterian Church. She was a 20-year member of Town Club. She is survived by her daughter, Denise Wood and son Douglas Howe (Charlotte), and three grandchildren - Sara Wood, Peter Howe (Carrie Durward) and Zoe Gray. Her beloved husband Bill and son David preceded her in death. Her family appreciates the support and comfort provided by Dr. Beth Hanlon, Dr. David Howe and the staff at Sunrise Senior Living and Summit Hospice. A memorial service will be held at Wasatch Presbyterian Church, 1626 South 1700 East, on Saturday, March 7 at noon, followed by light lunch. Those wishing to make a charitable contribution in her name might consider the Salvation Army or Heifer International. Online condolences: www.larkincares.com

Harris, Thorold - Salt Lake City  
Thorold Dale Harris 1927-2015 Thorold Dale (TD) Harris, 88, of Lexington, KY passed away peacefully on the morning of February 16, 2015, with his loving wife Cheri at his side. TD was born February 6, 1927, to Walter Dale and Luella Francis Harris in Mesa, AZ, and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He attended East High. Near the end of World War II, he served as a seaman first class in the US coast guard and trained as a radarman at Point Loma in San Diego, CA. He was scheduled to deploy to the south pacific on a ship that was eventually sunk. Because he could type proficiently, the Officer of the Day at Alameda Naval Base assigned him to become his personal secretary and his life was spared. After the war, TD and Gloria Peterson (Bushnell) were married June 25, 1952, and later divorced in 1976. TD and Cheryl (Cheri) Christian were married on December 1, 1987. Dad touched many with his abundant energy, cheerful attitude, love of teaching and service as a physician. He was an educated man and loved to learn and teach throughout his life. He attended the University of Utah where he received his undergraduate degree and was accepted to both the law and medical schools. After a year in law school, he decided he would rather be a physician but his medical school position was already filled. One day by chance at the University, he happened to meet Dr. Louis S. Goodman, the renowned pharmacologist, and offered to help him carry items from his car to his office. Dad offered to work in Dr. Goodman's laboratory for free which led to a position as a graduate student in pharmacology where he was fortunate to work with one of the great minds in medicine. He earned his master's degree in pharmacology in 1953. He reapplied to medical school, was accepted, and received his MD in 1957. In the late 1950's and early 1960's he specialized as a general surgeon with a year fellowship in vascular surgery. He trained at LDS Hospital, UCLA, the Long Beach Veteran's Hospital and the Long Beach Memorial Hospital. In 1965 he opened a surgical practice in Salt Lake City and practiced until 1981. In 1981 he closed his surgical practice and applied for an anesthesiology residency at the age of 53. For the next 23 years, he practiced as an anesthesiologist at the University of Kentucky and University of Cincinnati. Dad loved to teach medical residents. He blessed thousands of patients with his kind and caring service and trained many skilled physicians to do the same. Dad loved to teach. Nowhere was that more apparent than when he taught his children and grandchildren the value of persistent effort and hard work to achieve their goals. He would happily share what he knew with anyone who would listen including friends, family, and often complete strangers! We spent many wonderful hours with him learning to garden, golf, ski, swim, water ski, play tennis, and to enjoy life. He loved to visit beautiful places whether Jackson Lake in Wyoming or the beach in Hilton Head, SC. In 2010, Dad and Cheri were awarded first runner up in the residential front yard amateur design category of the Lexington in Bloom contest sponsored by the Lexington Garden Council. Dad had a close relationship with his brother Dick and together they shared many life experiences. They had a long-standing friendly competition in sports and especially in golf. At Dad's passing we know he was met by loving family on the other side of the veil and we are looking forward to the day when we will see him again. His family is grateful to his wife Cheri for the love and care she gave Dad during his declining health, and to his grandson AJ who spent the last several months helping with his care. Dad is survived by his wife Cheryl (Cheri) Christian Harris of Lexington, KY, his stepdaughter Michelle (Randy) Clay, his four children Julie (Geoff) Woods, Laurie (Kent) Cannon, Dale (Christine) Harris, and David Harris, 15 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Norma Woodland and brother Richard Harris. A viewing will be held at Larkin Mortuary address 260 E South Temple on Saturday February 28 from 12:45 pm to 1:30 pm. A service to celebrate Dad's life will start at Larkin Mortuary at 1:30 pm. Interment will be at the Salt Lake City cemetery. In memory of Dad, remember to give it "the old college try" in all that you do!
