Our sweet dad, Rex Thomas Walters, aka "Ruke" and "The Chief," passed away on 30 August 2015 of causes incident to age and Alzheimer's disease. He was born on 2 February 1926 in Tooele, Utah, to Isaac Samuel and Sarah Jane (Millward) Walters. He grew up on South First West and ran around with his "First West Buddies" - Dick Pascoe, Lavar Adams and Clayne Shepherd. He married Alma Jean White on March 16, 1947, and was sealed in the Salt Lake Temple to her on September 17, 1951. He is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints living almost his entire life in the Tooele Fourth Ward. He joined the U.S. Navy right out of high school and went to technical school in Great Lakes, Illinois, and Mare Island, California. He was stationed at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii after the bombing and was there when the war officially ended. He was always very proud of his military service. He worked at Tooele Army Depot his entire career - first as a painter, then as a fireman, and later as the fire chief. He also worked other jobs while working at the depot - he poured cement with Dick Henwood, he worked for Sike Gillette at his Texaco station and he painted houses. He always worked hard and provided well for his wife and their four daughters, Bobbie Lou, Sharon Kay, Laurie Dawn, and Terri Lyn. He was fire chief at the Tooele Army Depot from 1978 to 1981, and chief with the Tooele City Volunteer Fire Department from 1969 to 1970. He loved being a fireman and truly considered them his brothers. He was so proud that his grandson, Matt Burdine, became a Tooele Volunteer fireman. He loved to hunt and fish with Chuck Gillespie, "Butch" Porter and "Bump" Dunlavy who are all waiting for him on the "other side" so they can go catch a big one. At one time he boasted that he knew everybody in Tooele! He has had a long, wonderful life and we are so glad that the time has come that he can join his sweetheart, Alma Jean, in Heaven. She passed away in 1995 and he has missed her every day since then. He is survived by his daughters, all of Tooele: Bobbie Lou Anderson, Sharon Kay Burdine, Laurie Dawn Argyle (David), and Terri Lyn Fuell (Sandy). He also is the proud grandfather to thirteen grandchildren, thirty great-grandchildren and twenty-one great-great grandchildren. He leaves quite a legacy behind here on earth to continue to make his name honorable. He is survived by his sister, Vivian Groscost; sisters-in-law, Beverly White, Mary Jo White, and Bonna Walters; and brother-in-law, Sterling White. He is preceded in death by his wife, Alma Jean; his parents Isaac and Sarah; his brother, Jack Walters; and his granddaughter, Rachel Fait.

You may not know this, but mom was also a trombone player and was in the Ogden High Marching Band. Donna spent her life giving and doing everything she could to assure everyone else was living a better life. This involved talking to people she loved.

Wells, Owen David - West Valley City  
Aug. 2, 2015 ~ Aug. 30, 2015 Owen David Wells passed away peacefully in the arms of his parents, after a struggle with Congenital Heart Disease and other health issues. Owen is the son of Jason and Nicole Wells. He was a long awaited blessing they had spent many years praying for. In such a short time, his life and sweet spirit managed to impact so many.

If you were lucky enough to see his beautiful blue eyes, you could see him take in so much and show you the depth of his sweet little soul. Owen was our "little warrior" who fought for every day he had and blessed us with an unforgettable 28 days. Owen is survived by his parents Jason and Nicole (Opoulos) Wells, maternal grandparents Dave and Becky Opoulos, paternal grandparents Jay and Dina Wells, many aunts, uncles, a cousin and a large extended family that love him dearly. Preceded in death by his paternal grandmother Renee Brunker. Owen's family would like to thank Primary Children's NICU and especially the nurses and staff that took such good care of sweet Owen day in and day out. Services will be held Friday September 4, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. at the LDS Highbury Ward House, 3372 South Merry Lane (5275 West) West Valley City.

Westlund, Sybil - Salt Lake City  
Our beloved family matriarch returned to her heavenly home and was reunited with her sweetheart on Thursday, August 27th, 2015. Sybil Jensen Westlund was born to Brigham Richard and Sarah Eliza Williams Jensen on March 4, 1922 in Centerfield, Utah. She had some serious health issues as a baby, but battled through those to become a strong, spunky, amazing woman. Sybil graduated from Gunnison High School and caught the attention of a quiet boy from the same town, Clay David Westlund. They were married on November 12, 1947 in the Manti, Utah LDS temple. They were blessed with three sons. Family and faith were the foundation of Sybil's life. She devoted much of her time to serving in various church callings. She and Clay served three missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including one to Hong Kong. Grandma never took anything for granted. She saved and recycled, was generous with her time and talents, and worried about and prayed for her family constantly. She was a talented gardener, quilter and baker. She knew each of our favorite desserts and made sure her pantry and freezer were stocked with them. She never allowed anyone to go hungry in her presence. We will miss camping with her, playing SkipBo with her, and seeing the light in her eyes as she intently listened to our stories, but we know she will continue to lovingly watch over us. She is survived by her sons: Kirk (Helen), Stephen (Vicky), daughter-in-law Susan, Connie Anichini who the Weldon family shared with us, brother Philip, 9 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren, plus a large extended family and many dear friends. Sybil was preceded in death by her eternal companion Clay, her son Ronald, great-grandson Eli, her parents, and siblings: Gwen, Phyllis, Warren and Orson.

Williams, Edward Lewis - Salt Lake City  
Edward (Ed) Williams, loving father, beloved husband, and caring friend died August 23, 2015, in Denver, Colorado. He was 66 years old. Ed and his twin brother Elliott were born to Edna Christiansen Williams and Bill Williams in Rock Springs, Wyoming, on January 10, 1949. The family, also including brother Bob and sister Kathleen, moved to Salt Lake City soon after the twins' birth. Ed enjoyed a wonderful, nurturing childhood in the care of loving, devoted parents. A highlight of his youth was playing little league baseball with the enthusiastic support of his parents who regularly carpooled the team to out-of-town games. Ed attended Highland High School where his natural eye for photography soon became apparent. One of the great joys of his high school years was serving as photographer for his high school yearbook. He graduated from high school in 1967. Photography was a lifelong interest and in ensuing years he filled his homes with beautiful photographs of scenic sites as well as endearing photos of his beloved grandchildren. Ed attended Westminster College in Salt Lake City for two years then transferred to Brooks Institute of Photography where he finished his bachelor of fine arts degree. In 1978, following several years working as a commercial photographer in Salt Lake City, Ed accepted a position as company photographer at Unicover Corporation in Cheyenne, Wyoming. It was there that he met Cynthia Hull whom he married on February 16, 1980. The couple were the proud parents of two sons, Samuel (Sam) Edward Williams and Scott Russell Williams born in 1981 and 1983 respectively. In 1987, the family moved to Denver, Colorado where Ed was employed as a sales representative in the flooring industry covering the Wyoming, Western Nebraska and Eastern Colorado territory. After several years, he moved to an inside position with his company. He retired in 2011 from Queen Sales where he held the position of operations manager. Ed loved his family more than anything in his life and was always a gentle and caring father, husband, grandfather, brother and friend. He is survived by his wife, Cindy; son, Sam (Brook), Littleton, Colorado; son, Scott (Athena), League City, Texas; three grandsons, Conan, Max and Gavin; sister, Kathleen Vordos; brother, Bob (Sue); brother Elliott (Stephanie); and numerous nephews, nieces and friends.
