Thomas Jordison, 89, passed away suddenly May 6, 1996 in West Valley, Utah.

Born July 22, 1906 in Windleston, County Durham, England to William R. and Mary Hall Jordison. He married Carol Otteson August 1, 1936 who preceded him in death February 19, 1961.

Tom was a quiet, shy and gentle man with laughing eyes and a teasing smile. A loving husband and father, he raised his young daughters alone when Carol died. They are together again.

Thomas has four children, four grandchildren and three tiny great-grandchildren. He loved us well, just enough to lead and not smother, we learned by his example. He was loved by so many, respected by all who knew him. We will miss him always.

A devoted employee, Thomas retired as production manager from Interstate Brick Company after 45 years of service. He cherished the lasting friendships made with his co-workers throughout these many years.

Tom loved his sports (Go Jazz), was an avid stream fly-fisherman and eagerly cheered the many years of stock car racing of his son Dale.

Survived by son, Dale (Dianne); daughters, Elaine, Mary Beth "Liz" Hofhine (Gordon) of Salt Lake: Susan Smith of Los Gatos, Calif.; grandchildren, Terry (Dana), LeAnne Ferrin (Sean), Jennifer Hofhine of Salt Lake; Curtis Hofhine (Dolores) of Stamford, CT.; grandchildren, Tawny and Kristen Ferrin, Dillon Jordison; brother, Arthur of Bountiful; sister-in-law, Carrie (Mrs. John Jordison) of Springville.

Graveside services will be 12 noon, Friday, May 10, 1996 at Mount Olivet Cemetery, 1342 East 500 South, SLC, Ut. Friends may call Thursday evening from 7-9 p.m. or Friday from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Russon Brothers Mortuary, 255 South 2nd East, SLC, Ut.
