Son of Alfred Leland Jost and Beatrice Tillotson

Husband of Margaret Deyon MacDonald

Dale L. Jost passed away on Monday, December 5, 1994, after an extended bout with cancer.

He was born on July 22, 1921, and was the third child of five born to A. Leland Jost and Beatrice Tillotson. He grew up in Kaysville. As a small child, he helped his father plant and cultivate a large cherry orchard. This began his agricultural career. He attended Kaysville schools, went two years to Davis High, and then graduated from Berkeley High after his family moved to California. He attended one year of college in California and then enlisted in the Air Force as World War II began. He trained at Lowry, Chanute, and graduated from ordnance officer training at Aberdeen, Maryland as a 2nd Lieutenant, then later attended Allied Officer training at Oxford University. His military duties included supervision of armament, heavy bombardment, and the Nordan Bombsight on the B-17. He spoke little of his experiences in Europe as is typical of many who suffered there.

After the war, he graduated from Utah State and completed one year of graduate school at the U of U in business and marketing. He married Margaret MacDonald of Ogden on August 21, 1946 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. He continued farming, processing and packing cherries from the Jost orchards (and later others) along the Wasatch front. He was a member of the Northwest Cherry Briners Association and served as director for the National Cherry Growers and Industries Foundation for many years. He loved the outdoors. Active in the Kaysville Jaycees. He served as a High Priest in the LDS Church.

He will be remembered fondly for his cheerful disposition, warm congenial sense of humor, unknown support of many in need, and his ebullient bragging about his daughters and grandsons.

Survived by his wife, Margaret, his two daughters, Mrs. Joseph R. (Ann) Horton and Jacquelynn Jost; his sisters, Lavon Barclay Dabel, Eleanor Isaakson Barlow, Margorie Caroles, Cherry Gregorson Feldhaus; and two grandsons.

Funeral services will be held Thursday, Dec. 8, 1994 at 1 p.m. at the Kaysville 16th LDS Ward Chapel, 50 West 300 South. Friends and family may call Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Lindquist's Kaysville Mortuary, 400 No. Main and Thursday 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. at the church. Interment: Kaysville City Cemetery where military honors will be accorded by the D.A.V.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the Primary Children's Medical Center.
