Howard Marion Davies
Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, cousin, uncle and friend, Howard M. Davies, age 75, passed away Friday, May 31, 2002 due to congestive heart failure.
He was born September 21, 1926 in Lake Point, Utah, where he lived his entire life.
Howard leaves behind his wife of 52 years, Clarine Gunderson Davies and eight children: Karen Davies, Kent (Susan) Davies, Paul (Diane) Davies, LaRae (Milan) Christley, Richard (Wendy) Davies, Diane (Steve) Young, Bryan (Cherelle) Davies, David (Kathy) Davies, 43 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren. He also leaves behind seven brothers and sisters, Farrel (Gloria) Davies, Gilbert (Jean) Davies, Keith (Pat) Davies, Thelma (Ken) Gollaher, Darlene (Max) Welcker, Janet (Walter) Parker, and Jerry (Linda) Davies.
Howard is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many positions, including two terms as bishop of the Lake Point Ward. He loved the ward members and enjoyed playing volleyball and camping with them.
Howard loved his family, community members, the gospel, and farming. He retired in 1985 from Kennecott Copper Corporation after 40 years of service. He lived to see many technological advancements during his life and always spoke of his gratitude to be alive in this marvelous dispensation of time.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Thelma; step-mother, Doris; father, Brigham Dewey; brother, Burton; brother-in-law, Max Welcker; niece, Rosan Randle; and nephew, Daniel Green. He has eagerly anticipated being reunited with them and other loved ones. Although we are saddened by his passing, we celebrate with him the glorious reunion that awaits them.
We will celebrate his life and honor him at his funeral on Monday, June 3, 2002 at 12:00 noon in the Lake Point Ward Chapel, at the intersection of Canyon Road and Center Street. A viewing will be held Monday morning prior to the funeral from 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Interment will be in the Lake Point Cemetery.
