Wallace Junior (Wally) Fordham, of Cottonwood Heights, loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, and friend, passed away peacefully surrounded by family members Sunday, January 14, 2018 from natural causes.

Wally was born June 18, 1931 in Greenville to George Albert Fordham and Jeanette Calvert Fordham. Wally was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

He married his sweetheart and best friend, Phyllis Warner, on October 1, 1952 in the Logan Temple.

Wally worked for Mountain Bell/AT&T for thirty-four years. Upon retirement, he spent most of his time doing for others, and what he loved best was spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He also loved his garden and yard, working in the dirt. He was very meticulous in everything he did.

Dad never hesitated or passed up an opportunity to help the many members of his family and friends with any project. Known as a hard worker, he taught that work ethic to his children and grandchildren. Wally loved the outdoors and especially enjoyed many memorable summers camping with his family.

Wally was preceded in death by his parents; dear wife, Phyllis; daughters, Julie Fordham and Jill (Bob) Cunliffe; brothers, Howard, Ralph, Lamar, and Alan Fordham; and sisters, Bessie Edwards and Glenna Rae Fordham. He is survived by his brother, Dean (Shirley) Fordham; sister, Barbara (Lynn) Brasher; daughter, Geri (Jeff) King; sons, Guy (Natalie) Fordham and Hal (Jennette) Fordham; grandchildren; and great-grandchildren.

The family wishes to extend special thanks Dr. David Jack for the many years to service to our parents, to the staff and management of the Canyon Creek Care Center, and to Symbii Home Health Hospice for the wonderful care provided to Wally.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 20, 2018 in the Butler Seventh Ward Chapel, 1355 East 7200 South, Cottonwood Heights. Viewings will be held on Friday, January 19, 2018 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Cannon Mortuary, 2460 East Bengal Boulevard (7600 South), Cottonwood Heights, and on the day of the services at the church from 9:30-10:30 a.m.
