Guy C. Beckstrom was born June 11, 1904, in Mt Pleasant to Gilbert and Lenora Monson Beckstrom. He grew to be a tall man and married LoRee Deakin, in Salt Lake City, Utah, on September 25, 1923. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Logan LDS Temple.

Guy & LoRee lived in Bingham Canyon, Utah and in their early marriage joined her family for a short time in Heber Valley at "the Berg Ranch" - a wonderful Deakin memory. They also lived in Mt Pleasant, Sanpete, Utah where three of their five children were born. While they were there, six month old Darwin, their third child died. They moved back to Bingham Canyon and in 1938 had their youngest child Darrell. They are best known for having lived in West Jordan at 8264 South 1700 West (on Redwood Road) for many, many years.

Guy worked at Kennecott Copper Corporation, where most of his brother-in-laws and family members also worked. He retired as a locomotive engineer for K.C.C., having been there for 33 years.

He died on September 28, 1977 at age 73, in a Salt Lake hospital.

He was survived by his loving wife; sons and daughter: LaGrande, Kenneth G., Darrell G., all West Jordan; Mrs. Robert L. (Myrle) Foist, Silver City, New Mexico; 15 grandchildren. Brother and sister: Harold, Magna, Utah; Mrs. John (Beth) Jolley, Lehi, Utah.

Funeral services were held on Saturday, October 1, 1977 at 11 a.m., in the West Jordan 5th LDS Ward, located at 7951 South 1700 West. Friends called at the Goff Mortuary, 8090 South State, Friday 6-8 p.m. and Saturday at the Church one hour before services.
