============
my grandpa was born March 24, 1935! My middle name is Frank in honor of this great man. Although he had already passed by the time I was born, it is still very exciting for me to be born on my grandpa's birthday. He was born in Washington City, Utah, and spent all of his life here. He was born to Woodrow Wilson Staheli and Carma Hafen. His siblings were George, Ralph, Stan, Kay, Genie, Sandra, and Nancy (not in birth order). He grew up in a very religious home, and attended the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Later he would become the bishop of his local ward in Washington. He was leader in his community and one of his biggest achievements in the community was serving as mayor.
Another great achievement my grandpa made was serving in the state's military operations. He served during the Vietnam War. My uncle Frank and aunt Annette were both born in Vietnam during the war. My uncle Frank would be the only son of grandpa Frank to serve in the military.
He worked on his father's farm, Staheli Farms. W.W. Staheli and Sons is still slightly visible on the silo situated near the front of the farm. When Woodrow grew old and retired, Frank took over as head of the farm. He spent most of his time on the farm, as did my own father (when he wasn't in school). Grandpa Frank used his income to help support his large family, and he was a great family man. Everything he did was for the benefit of his family. This is why he was a man who lived the American Dream. He was always working to make his family's life better. He loved working on the farm and providing for his family. He would spend the last moments of his life on the very farm he loved. He would pass away in 1986 at the age of 50 in a horrible accident involved with a hay-baler. My uncle Matt was present at the time of his passing.
Frank was a great man, and anybody that ever met him was bound to love him. He would often stop friends and family and take for long periods of time even if they had somewhere to be. My mom was late to school in the mornings because Frank loved to talk to her so much when she was on her way to the high school. When he passed away the entire community mourned the loss of such a great man. Not a single room in the chapel was empty at his funeral. I'm so proud to be named after such a great man, and I feel like it's my responsibility to fill his shoes, and carry on his good name.
