Heuston, Hilary Zell - Sandy  
Mar. 31, 1968 ~ Dec. 5, 2014 When Hilary caught a glimpse of anything good or beautiful, she opened her whole heart to it and made it her own. Her greatest delight was to share that goodness with the many people she loved, usually accompanied by mounds of baked goods. She understood that life is a grand adventure, and lived it at a high volume, soundtrack blaring, cooler of diet coke and chocolate cake at her side. She loved without condition or judgment, and with a loyalty so fierce that her recipients could never again doubt that they had been seen, understood, and cherished by at least one great heart. Born in Wellesley, Massachusetts, Hilary spent her early childhood in New York City, the place she would always count as her hometown. After moving to Utah with her family, she was a proud member of the Waterford School's first graduating class. She attended Hamilton College; served a mission to Zurich, Switzerland; and graduated with a degree in art history from the University of Utah. After moving back to New York, she earned a master's degree in Museum Education from Bank Street and taught at Dalton and the Lycée Française. She also worked as a camp counselor at Alford Lake Camp in Maine, and cherished the friendships she made there throughout her life, often inviting those friends and others to elaborately managed country weekends at her beloved home in Vermont. In recent years, Hilary has struggled with health challenges that shook her to the bone. Her family watched first with great pain, and then with growing respect and even awe as she taught herself to wrest a joyous, generous existence from constricted circumstances. We acknowledge the hand of a loving Father who promised her this fall that she would be called home when she had completed her mission and would be astonished by what she had accomplished. We know her beloved Golden Retriever Abelard was there to greet her. Family will greet visitors at 10:00 am, with Services to follow at 11:00 am on Saturday, December 13th at Granite Ward, 3100 East 9575 South, Sandy UT.

1974 - 2014 Christopher Jeffrey Heyn passed away peacefully but unexpectedly December 8, 2014 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Chris was born May 13, 1974 to Jeffrey J. and Renate A. Heyn, raised in the Avenues of Salt Lake, and became a lifetime U of U fan. A perfect sports Saturday for Chris was a U of U win and BYU loss. He loved most sports, especially football, basketball, fishing and golf. Golfing with his dad at Bonneville Golf course was a top priority. Chris was a good athlete and played competitive football and baseball. He dearly cherished the company, love and comfort he received from his mother. She helped him navigate through all of the challenges life presented him. His family is proud of the way he handled adversity with courage and dignity. When asked how he was doing, his response was always "I'm good." We love and will miss Chris deeply, but can find solace knowing he has been set free.

Holbrook, Houston Patrick - Sandy  
Houston Patrick Holbrook 11.16.1984 - 12.11.2014 "It's more important to live honorably than to survive." For the last ten years of Houston's life he studied and searched for a hero, the perfect protagonist, as he worked on his novel and mythology that he hoped to someday share with the world. Little did he know that, through his afflictions, he would become the hero he was so desperately trying to find and would create a story tangible and real, loved by many, simply by living. He thought that unfaltering heroes were not realistic or relatable, but he proved himself wrong in the way he humbly lived his life and fought the cancerous demon inside of him. The cruelest villains not only attack the body but attempt to destroy the soul, and Houston's soul could not be shaken as his body endured every pain imaginable. For the nineteen months that he fought rare and aggressive leukemia he taught us all how to live with gratitude, laughter, and without complaint. He remained steadfast, faithful, endured to the end, and his fortitude was easily witnessed by all who knew him. Houston always worked hard to make the world a better place through his quiet example, happy attitude and creative spirit. He won state and national art contests at ten years old, excelled in school, served his peers with special needs, was a student body artist, and made a feature length film with his friends at Brighton High School where he graduated. He chose to be baptized as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at sixteen, was an eagle scout, and served a full time mission in Cordoba, Argentina. He married his sweetheart in the Salt Lake Temple and graduated from Brigham Young University's film program where he emphasized in screenwriting. Even though his schooling was finished, he never stopped learning. He stayed up until the wee hours of the night researching, writing, and scouring the works of his favorite authors to better understand their craft. He called Sandy, Maui, and Moab his home. He loved the mountains, ocean, and red rock and spent countless hours exploring them. Houston worked for Vivint's media team and with Bored Shorts TV creating funny YouTube videos. He loved making people laugh and it was rewarding for him to see the joy he helped bring others around the globe. While battling cancer he went on many adventures. He flew to LA one month after his second stem cell transplant to make a video with Lucasfilm, was on Salt Lake Comic Con's media team (twice), and enjoyed time with his family and friends. Houston is preceded in death by his grandmother Yvonne Hale, his cousin Lindsey Hayes, and brother-in-law Jordan Thibeault. He is survived by his parents Jon and Christine, his wife Denise, and his siblings Normandy, Dexter (Shanice), and Katelyn (Kolby). He is also survived by his grandparents Don Holbrook and Dennis and Karen Hayes, his nephews Dublin, Hayden, and Jax, his niece Graicee, and his "out-laws" John and Celeste Thibeault. The family would like to thank Vivint for their kindness, Bored Shorts TV for adopting Houston into their family, as well as his countless friends and supporters globally. Houston personally expresses his gratitude to his mother Christine and his wife Denise for their service, dedication, and love. Please join us as we celebrate Housty's life and bring this beautiful chapter to a close. His viewing will be on Sunday, December 14th from 6-8pm at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 E. Dimple Dell Road (10600 S.), Sandy and his funeral will be on Monday, December 15th at 11am, with a viewing prior from 9-10:30am at the LDS Chapel, 13085 S. 300 E., Draper. Interment to follow at Larkin Sunset Gardens Cemetery.

Huber, Paul Orval - Bountiful  
1915 ~ 2014 Paul Orval Huber passed peacefully on December 11, 2014 surrounded by family, one month prior to his 100th birthday. Paul was born January 11, 1915, to Ernest Alma Huber and Rozina Richardson Huber in Salt Lake. He attended LDS High School and West High. After high school he enrolled in ROTC and attended the University of Utah, studying Mechanical Engineering. There he was introduced by a classmate to Mary Jeanne Midgley, who would be the love of his life. They married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on February 23, 1938, and enjoyed 70 years of companionship here on earth. They are now reunited. Paul finished his studies about the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor and was called to war, leaving Jeanne and his infant son Winston. He served in North Africa, Sicily, France, and Germany, participating in three D-Day invasions, including landing in the second wave on Utah beach. He crossed the Remagen Bridge and saw it collapse a short time later. He personally witnessed concentration camps and the horrors of the Holocaust, a memory that he carried throughout his life. For his valiant service he was awarded the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, and the French Cross. He attained the rank of Colonel. He was recently honored again for his wartime service by being invited to participate in the last Honor Flight of 2014, visiting Washington DC and seeing firsthand the World War II Memorial. Upon his return he was greeted with a hero's welcome by his family and the community. After the war Paul and Jeanne made their home in Bountiful, Utah.

He served in numerous church callings throughout his life and as a city council member in Bountiful. Professionally he used his engineering background at Midgley-Huber, designing heating and air conditioning systems for large buildings. Paul was an avid hunter and marksman. He loved the outdoors and horseback riding. He purchased property in Star Valley, Wyoming and started a cattle ranch. Vacations were often spent working on the ranch harvesting hay, digging irrigation ditches, and driving cattle. Time spent at the ranch has become a cherished memory for the family. Paul was also an exceptional chef and completely at ease in a kitchen. Grandchildren found underfoot when he was moving a tray of food were warned with a cry of, "Hot stuff!" issued with a mixture of love and seriousness that was unique to Paul. He had deep affection for his grandchildren and great-grandchildren and loved spending time with them. They returned his love and viewed him as a role model. Paul is survived by daughters Christine (David) Brand of Bountiful, Elline "Pinkie" Harrison of Salt Lake City, and Pauline (Gary) Sonntag of Price; Navajo Indian Placement Program daughters Fannie Begay of Page, AZ and Daisy Nez of Page, AZ; 18 grandchildren; numerous great-grandchildren.
