Roy William McFerson

Roy William McFerson died September 30, 2011 at the age of eighty-six.

He was born November 21, 1924 in Roy, Weber County, Utah to Gerald and Eva Robinson McFerson.

He grew up in Clearfield, graduated from Davis High School in 1942, and proudly served in U.S. Navy during World War II (July 1943-March 1946) in the South Pacific.

He furthered his education at the University of Utah. On September 12, 1951, he married Lola Maye Redford in the Salt Lake Temple. Their sixtieth anniversary was his incentive in prolonging his long illness and the thrill of seeing the U of U win over BYU in football.

Roy served as Bishop of the Clearfield Sixth Ward from 1968-1974, as well the Stake High Council in three stakes.

He was the Northridge Stake Executive Secretary for nine years and the Lincoln Ward High Priest Group Secretary for ten years. He and Lola served in the Ventura-California Mission from 1986-1987.

He belonged to several bowling leagues and was an avid golfer and fisherman. Over a span of thirty-three years, he spent his vacations and later his winters trailering with family and friends.

He excelled in woodworking, cement masterpieces, gardening, and building golf clubs.

Roy retired from Hill AFB in 1978 (Standards Lab and Maintenance Planning) after thirty-one years of government service.

Surviving are his wife of Layton, son Gerald, Clinton; daughter Karen, South Ogden; brother Jed (Patricia) and sisters-in-law Lurrine McFerson, Clearfield; LaVerne Redford McQuarrie, Kaysville; and Donna Redford Glenn, Ogden; in addition to many beloved nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by parents, sister and brother-in-law Beth and J. Edward Martini, and brother David.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, October 8, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. in the Lincoln LDS Chapel, 590 West Antelope Drive (2000 North), Layton. Friends may visit the family on Friday from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Lindquist's Layton Mortuary, 1867 North Fairfield Road, and Saturday from 9:45-10:45 a.m. at the church.
Interment: Lindquist's Memorial Gardens of the Wasatch, 1718 Combe Road, South Ogden. Full military honors will be accorded.
