Shirley Eugene Newbold
"Shirl"
Shirley Eugene Newbold passed peacefully from mortality to eternity on July 8, 2014. Shirl was born July 20, 1930 to Daniel M. and Ruth Jensen Newbold, and grew up in South Jordan, Utah. He spent his life in service to his family and countless others. He was a true friend to all he met. He met his sweetheart, Colleen, at West Jordan Jr. High and they were married in the Salt Lake Temple on June 29, 1949. They were blessed with three sons, 16 grandchildren, and 28 great-grandchildren. Professionally, Shirl worked for Kennecott Copper as a senior mining foreman. He retired after 30 years in 1985. Shirl served the community of Midvale as president of the western boys baseball association and a volunteer fireman and ambulance driver. He was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many positions, most recently as High Priest Group Leader. Shirl and Colleen built strong family ties and lasting memories through boating, fishing, camping, Easter breakfasts, and Christmas Day luncheons. Shirl rendered countless hours of quiet, Christlike service to his family and neighbors. He could repair anything and saved everything. He has left a great legacy of faith, service, and friendship.
Shirley is survived by his loving sweetheart, Colleen, his son Barry (Sherry), daughters in law Bonnie and Debbie, and brothers Jerry, and DeRoyce (LaDee).
Shirley is preceded in death by his parents, a brother, Lamar, and two of his sons, Cary and Danny.
