Our beloved father, Wendell Leon Omer, 79, passed away after a short bout with leukemia, on September 29, 2004, in Orem, UT, surrounded by his three children.

He was born on April 21, 1925 in Holladay, UT to August Gideon Omer and Leona Sutherland Omer and was the fifth of nine children.

He graduated from Granite High School in 1942 and entered the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, where he graduated in 1946 as an Ensign in the U.S. Navy with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He married his high school sweetheart, Aiida Faye Scott, in the Salt Lake Temple on 4 September 1946. After working for more than 40 years as an outside plant Engineer for Pacific Telephone in California and Anchorage Telephone in Alaska, he returned to Utah in 1994.

He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many Ward and Stake positions. He especially loved the Temple and in the last few years spent more and more time doing temple work, and also serving as a Church Service Missionary in the Lindon Utah Bishop's Storehouse.

He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, a sister and his beloved wife, Aiida. He is survived by two brothers and three sisters; three children, Michael Scott Omer (Kathleen), Nancy Ellen Rawls (Joseph) and Andra Elisabeth Sommerville (Kerry), 12 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
