David Bryan Orgill...a gifted musician's song has been silenced. The song of love that sprang forth from the heart and gave flight through his fingertips is now but a memory. David Bryan Orgill, born February 26, 1952 to LaRae Poulson and Royal Gordon Orgill, passed from this life June 27, 1998, due to a heart attack.
He graduated from Granite High School in 1970 and was a member of the LDS Church. Married Deniece Wright, later divorced. That marriage brought forth a beloved daughter, Lacey.
David was a loving father, son, brother, uncle; and is survived by parents, Royal Gordon and Ruby LaRae (Poulson) Orgill; daughter, Lacey; brother, Darrell (Sharon); sister, LeAnn (Mark) Josie; nephews and nieces, Lyndsie, Brian (serving an LDS mission in Brazil); Michael, Brynn, Alec and Brooke. He was preceded in death by his grandparents; and one brother, Dale.
David was a self taught musician mastering guitar and keyboards. Developing a keen ear for harmony and a sense of melody and counterpoint, he founded and anchored many musical groups during his 34 year career in the local music scene. With his first group, the Bossmen/Spring Fever, David enjoyed success on a local level as the house band for Lagoon and the Terrace. The dreams of a young man were realized when Spring Fever released nationally a record authored by David at age 16. "Stop," "b/w," "You Made My Life," was released on Capitol Records in the Spring of 1969. That his boyhood heroes, the Beach Boys and the Beatles, were also on that label made the experience all the sweeter. Love of family and friends was key to his happiness and it was nowhere more evidenced than in his desire to share his musical gifts. It has been said, "It's not what we acquire that measures our greatness, it's what we overcome." In that sense David's life was a success. "Your earthly heart may have given out, but your spiritual heart never did. Thanks for the music. Thanks for the many laughs. Thanks for the love. Thanks for your life. Until we embrace again."
