Obituary - Seth Layton Blood, age 87, died April 1, 1993, at his home in Salt Lake City of causes incident to age.

Born August 6, 1905, in Kaysville, Utah, the seventh of nine children of John Hooper and Drucilla Grace Layton Blood. Married Alta Robins in the Salt Lake Temple on October 28, 1932. She died November 4, 1975.

He graduated from Utah State Agricultural College and worked in the accounting office of Utah Oil Refining Company. His life was one of service to his family, his community, his church, and to those who struggled with alcoholism. He served on the Centerville City Council and in the Centerville Lions Club.

He was an active member of the Centerville First Ward where he served in many capacities. With his wife at his side, he served as the area treasurer for the LDS Church Building Program in the South Pacific. He was a devoted temple worker and had a great love and reverence for his calling as a sealer in the Salt Lake Temple. His most recent ward calling was as high priest group leader in the 12th Ward of the Salt Lake Central Stake.

He had been involved in volunteer service programs of alcohol recovery for the past 45 years. His own recovery from alcoholism was instrumental in his being one of the forerunners in helping Davis County establish and develop programs directed to overcoming addictions and other problems resulting from alcohol and drug abuse. He had spent over 20 years serving on both the Davis County Mental Health and Davis County Alcohol and Drug Boards, which led, in 1989, to the establishment of the Seth L. Blood Service Award, which is now given annually to the volunteer with outstanding service in the area of alcohol and drug abuse.

His survivors include his only child, Betty Blood Clark and her husband, Howard S. Clark; three grandchildren and their spouses: Lissa and Curtis Anderson, Scott and Karalie Clark, Jane and Jeffrey Cobabe; 11 great-grandchildren: Christin, Mary and Clark Anderson; Nicholas, Caitlin, and Zachary Clark; Peter, John, Annie, David, and Michael Seth Cobabe; one sister, Nora B. Smart; many in-laws, nieces and nephews.

His sweetness and tender spirit will influence and be with his loved ones always.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday, April 7, 1993, 12 noon at the Larkin Mortuary, 260 East South Temple, where friends may call Tuesday evening from 6-8 p.m. and again on Wednesday from 10:45-11:45 a.m. prior to services.

Interment, Kaysville-Layton Cemetery.
