Milton Eugene Carlisle


1927 - 2012 Obituary Condolences
LOGAN - Milton Eugene Carlisle was greeted by many members of his family beyond the veil on April 20, 2012. He was surrounded by his loving wife, Dawna, and many members of his family on this side of the veil as he passed.
He was born to Milton and Eva Jane Silcox Carlisle on June 10, 1927, in Murray, Utah. He attended Granite High School and graduated from Logan High School. He served in the United States Navy as a captain's orderly aboard the U.S.S. Kwajalein during World War II. He married Dawna Daw, his sweetheart, on Aug. 18, 1948, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They are the parents of five children, Kenneth (Jane) Carlisle of Texas, David (Tranette) Carlisle of Logan, Utah, Connie (James) Bodily of Millville, Utah, Dana (James) Sorenson of Springville, Utah, and Terrisa (Louis) Berg of Soda Springs, Idaho.
He moved to Logan, Utah, in 1957, when natural gas was brought to Cache Valley. He lived on Canyon Road in Logan for 12 years. He worked for Mountain Fuel Supply Company, currently known as Questar Gas Company, for 43 years. He started out as a ditch digger and worked his way up to be the service manager of the Northern Division.
He lived along First South in Logan for the past 42 years. He was an avid fisherman, hunter, square dancer, boater, bowler, gardener and jack of all trades. His mother always said, ""Gene can do anything.""
He served as president of the Cache Valley Boat Club. He was a Varsity Scout leader, in the Elder's Quorum presidency, Sunday School presidency, stake building security supervisor, assistant librarian, Sunday School teacher, and Priests Quorum adviser in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. For many years he was a caring home teacher. He was able to feel and meet their needs before they were even known. He was able to help support and send two sons and more than 15 grandchildren and others on LDS missions.
He will be widely remembered as an excellent pickle maker, apple cider maker and right-hand helper to his wife's canning. With a pocket knife, shovel or tractor, there wasn't anything he couldn't do.
He is survived by his wife, children, 30 grandchildren and 31 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother, Norman Carlisle. He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Myrle O'Dell Jefferies; and grandson, Allan J Bodily.
Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, April 25, in the Logan 1st Ward chapel, 89 S. 200 West, Logan. A viewing will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Allen-Hall Mortuary, 34 E. Center St., Logan, and from 9 to 9:45 a.m. Wednesday prior to the services at the church. Interment will be in the Logan City Cemetery.
