Deseret News (Salt Lake City UT) - September 2, 1997

Clive George Tapp, age 90, "A Grand Old Man", died August 27, 1997 at the home of his only daughter Renee T. Burton, after a lingering illness.
Due to the early death of his mother he was raised together with his sister, Della Tapp Reynolds by an aunt Mary and her husband Ernest Green. He married Thora Nielson on June 21, 1930 in Salt Lake City. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake L.D.S. Temple. During his life he held various church callings.
Dad was a wonderful, kind father and grandpa to his family. He had a winning smile, and firm handshake for everyone. He was an avid horseman and spent his early life working with horses and cattle. He loved the outdoors, hunting and fishing. At Jordan High School he excelled in athletics. He was a journeyman electrician, plumber, carpenter, and was employed by Utah Power and Light Co., as a Hydro and Substation Operator, and at the time of his death was retired after twenty-one years service from Phillips Petroleum Co., as District Maintenance Manager in Idaho.
Survivors include his daughter, Renee (Bill) Burton, Salt Lake City; grandsons, Russell (Sue) Burton, Kyle (Pat) Burton, and great-grandchildren, Alissa, Blake, Tim and Parker Burton. He loved us all very much.
