Layton, Richard "Dick" - Salt Lake City  
1930 ~ 2015 "I don't understandā€¦" Richard "Dick" Layton wanted to "Drop dead on the golf course by being hit in the head with a golf ball", but instead, he passed at home from prostate cancer on July 20, 2015. Gentle, adorable, kind, likeable and curious with a dry sense of humor, Dad, Grandpa, Great-grandpa, uncle, and friend Richard was born January 12, 1930 to Newell and Leona Schieb Layton in Salt Lake City, Utah. He graduated from South High School in 1947. Richard married his high school sweetheart, Mary Hofheins, creating a 64 year partnership. Mary preceded him in death on April 3, 2013, forever creating a hole in his world. Richard spent most of his work life as a pressman in the printing industry with Quality Press. In the late 70's he and Mary bought "Hunters Haven", a bar and motel in Mud Lake, Idaho, creating the best of adventures and life for 12 years. After returning to Salt Lake, Richard began his 'retirement' at Fore Lakes Golf Course which he labeled his best job ever, working there for nearly 20 years. Fore Lakes became his home away from home, allowing him to work at his greatest joy - being on the golf course, rain or shine, summer heat or winter cold. Richard also treasured his car trips, short and long, logging thousands of miles over the years with Mary and his children. From the '63 New York World's Fair to a "quick trip up the canyon" that ended up taking 2 days, these are treasured memories for all. Richard and Mary also purchased a cabin in the Guardsman Pass area in the mid 1960's. The family worked together to make the A-frame a home and welcome retreat that is still enjoyed by Duane. Richard was a quiet man, a passionate atheist and an exemplary human being, never passing judgment or saying a negative word about anyone. Well read, Richard always enjoyed a robust discussion. He and his close friend Rick often solved the world's problems with great enthusiasm. He was preceded in death by his parents, sisters Carley and Audrey and brother Jack. He is survived by his daughter Glory (his roommate/caretaker the past 2 years), sons Joel (known as Rob to his family) and his partner Lilliane, and Duane (known as Dewie to his friends); grandchildren, Brodie, Mitch and his wife Tiffiny, Candace and Ulysses; step-grandchildren Jason, Brier, Akane and Persephone; and great-grandchildren, Kelsie, Payton and Skyy. We feel fortunate to have been able to know, share, and love our parents for as many years as we have. We will treasure our memories and forever miss our Dad and Grandpa's love and support. With a strong belief in science and the importance of free thinking, Richard donated his body to the University of Utah, and has requested no services. Richard will be memorialized at the Celebration of Life Monument at Library Square in Salt Lake City, Utah. There will be a celebration of Richard's life at a later date. Please donate from your heart to the University of Utah Anatomy-Body Donor Memorial Fund in Richard's memory.

Lees, Patricia - Salt Lake City  
After Dad died, Mom started to worry about what picture we would use for her own obituary. So she went out and had some glamour shots taken. Patricia Packard Lees was the last member of Trekka Trekka Trekka, a social group devoted to travel and having fun whose founding members included her husband, Jay; Marv and Julia Bertoch; Bud and Ila Jack; Herb Price and Bob Wilson. They were famous for their scotch and sodas. Born in 1923, Mom always felt very lucky to have both her brother, Russ, (whom she called "Brother"- which became his defacto name) and her younger sister Julene (known as Deenieā€¦given names were largely ignored it seems). Mom grew up playing on the stoop of the house of her great-aunts and great-uncle on West 2nd South. They rented out neighboring buildings and Mom would sometimes tag along with her beloved aunt Becky Almond to collect rent from those not-always-above-board West 2nd South businesses(!!) She met Jay when acting in one of Bob (Robert Hyde) Wilson's productions in the old Playbox Theatre. Soon after, Jay joined the army, and initially was conveniently posted in Fort Douglas, allowing them to continue the courtship. Later, while Jay was in France fighting WWII, Pat went to the U. When he returned (victorious, by-the-way), they married and she went on to become a much-beloved Jr. High English teacher. They were blessed with four children: Jay Terry, Mindy, Becky, and Rusty. In 1971 the entire family moved to France for a study abroad. Mom oversaw an apartment on the outskirts of Paris and did her best to pronounce "croissants aux beurre" correctly. Mom built a home in Torrey, Utah where she and Dad loved to spend time with their children, grandchildren, and friends. As we all know, Pat's smile lives on because it was never ending. Special thanks to Victor, Monica, and the Haywards. A graveside service will be held at the Salt Lake City Cemetery at 10:00am, Tuesday, July 28, and from 5-7 pm there will be an open house at the Lees residence (2218 S. 2200 E.).

Lewis, Minnie Jane Welch Egan - Salt Lake City  
On July 27, 2015, Minnie Jane Welch Egan Lewis returned to her heavenly home after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born February 15, 1931 to Samuel Welch and Minnie Jane Hughes, the 5th of 7 children: Samuel (D), Newel, Naola (D), Jonathan (D), Minnie, Thomas (D), and Garth. She was born and grew up in Harper, Utah. Minnie met Willes Gerald Egan while attending the U of U, and they were married on July 14, 1954 in the Logan Temple. They had 9 children together: David (Karen), Ronald (Peggy), Mark (Marianne), Timothy (Lora), Sterling (Stacy), Michael (Virginia), Maria Shumway (D), Spencer (Melinda), & Camille (Davin) Hansen. Jerry & Minnie divorced in 1972 with the kids ranging from 1 to 16 yrs old. Minnie devoted herself to raising her children with love in the gospel. She was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints all of her life and served in many different callings. She was a pioneer woman in so many ways and showed the strength and character of her forbears raising 9 children on her own. Minnie graduated from the U of U and taught elementary school for 30 years. She loved children and was a motivating and inspirational influence to hundreds of kids that were placed in her care during their early developmental years. Minnie was very blessed to be sealed to Derwin Lynn Lewis in the Jordan River Temple on April 19, 1986. Derwin has 4 children: Michael (Julie) Lewis, Sharon (Brent) Christensen, Diane (Lynn) Manning, and Annette (James) Spainhower - creating a large blended family. Minnie and Derwin served in the Bountiful, Utah Temple for 14 years, served several full-time missions together, and made many lifelong friends. They also loved to travel and made wonderful memories together. She loved their 58 grandchildren and 46 great-grandchildren. Nothing made her happier than to be surrounded by her family. She hosted countless family parties and cooked for huge crowds. She always sweetened any gathering with her presence and with candy - she loved to share her peanut M&M's! Minnie's faith in God was unshakable. She truly fought a good fight and remained valiant to the end. We honor her memory and her legacy of teacher, church volunteer, friend, and mother. Funeral Services and Viewings will be held at the Porter Lane 2nd Ward Chapel: 435 West 400 South, Centerville, Utah. Friends and family may visit Friday, July 31, 2015 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and Saturday August 1, 2015 from 12:45 p.m.-1:45 p.m. Funeral Services will be Saturday August 1, at 2:00 p.m. Interment will be at the Bountiful City Cemetery.
