"A Tribute by the South Salt Lake Stake Presidency
The measure of a man is the height of his ideals, the depths of his convictions, and the breath of his interests and sympathies. Measured by this standard, Patriarch Park Romney was truly a great man. There are no higher ideals than those which directed his life, his deep convictions were sincere and unwavering, his interests ranged from colonizing for his Church to farming, then to building for a livelihood. His off-work hours were filled with doing good to others as shown by his varied but constant work in the Church. Wherever he has been, there he has worked for the welfare of others as bishop, High Councilman, President of the High Priests and last as Patriarch where he had the privilege of blessing the people he loved so well. In all these activities and vicissitudes his charming wife has stood by his side supporting, encouraging and advising as well as carrying considerable responsibilities of her own.
He was a builder of fine characters as well as fine buildings. There are many structures that stand as a monument to his skill as a craftsman but his greatest and most lasting monument is the fine family he leaves and his myriad of friends. The community has lost a loyal, exemplary citizen, the Church a fervent worker and staunch supporter and his family a loving provider and an unflinching though sympathetic exemplar of the lofty ideals for which he stood.
We treasure his memory and seek to follow his path until we meet again."
