William Manford Raines III Obituary
Salt Lake City, UT-I was born to Amanda K. [Speidel} and William M. Raines in Billings, Montana on 24 February 1931. I was raised and attended schools in Billings, Montana, Toppenish, WA, and Mt. Angel, OR. In 1948, joined the US Navy and served on the Heavy Cruiser USS ST. Paul during the Korean Conflict. In 1954, I married Betty K. Weis in Red Lodge, Montana. We lived in Billings, MT, Casper, MT, and SLC, UT. We are the proud parents of 5 children. I loved to travel and driving truck was my life-long occupation of choice. I drove for Garrett Freight Lines and for the Transportation Dept. of the LDS Church. I served in various Church positions and had the pleasure of serving as a Temple worker. I am survived by my wife, Betty, our children, Jan (Cub), Bill (Chris), Autumn (Greg), Warren (Susan), and David (Sandi), also by 12 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, and my sisters, Virginia and Donna Lee. The family held a private service on September 5, 2018. In lieu of flowers, you may make a donation to Primary Children's Hospital. For more information see www.wasatchlawn.com.
