Dave Heywood, 93, died at his Salt Lake home of causes incident to age on March 25, 2002.

He was born Feb. 22, 1909, in Panguitch, Utah, the ninth child of ten born to David Leland Heywood and Kate DeLong Heywood. After attending USU, he worked his own ranch on the Sevier River. The Great Depression forced him to sell his ranch. After working for the Forest Service as a Civilian Conservation Corps supervisor, he married Margaret Taylor in February of 1939. They moved to Salt Lake City where he worked as a pipe-fitter for UTOCO/AMOCO Oil Refinery until retirement when he continued and expanded his fine garden, growing vegetables and fruit for eating and giving.

A man who lived with pure integrity, good humor, and compassion; his motto could have been: "Get up, Be on Time! Do your share."

A New Deal Democrat and union man, he worked to support the ideals of his party. Otherwise he lived quietly as a family man. He was a lover of books and a story teller, regaling his children and grandchildren with stories of his early life in Utah's 'red-rock' country hunting cougars and herding cattle. He taught by good example.

Survived by his beloved wife, Margaret Taylor Heywood; son, David Michael (Mary) Heywood, Vancouver WA; daughters, Patricia Margaret "Pat" Chiu, Provo; Roxie Jane Heywood, and Kathryn "Katie" (Bill) Roach, of Salt Lake City; 18 grandchildren; and 17 great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Trudy Heywood, Logan; and many loved nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by his infant son, Arthur Welling Heywood; his nine siblings, Leland (Marie) Heywood; Blanche (Deward) Woodard; Jean (Blaine) Betenson; Bessie (Tom) Judd; Mary (Phil) Cherrington; Dwight Heywood; Kate (Rudolph) Church; Winne Bell (Denton) Hays; and Ben (Trudy) Heywood.

Funeral services will be 12 noon, Thursday, March 29th, at Larkin Mortuary, 260 East South Temple, with visitation one hour prior to services. Burial, Salt Lake City Cemetery.
