Married for 65 years to Caroljoy Noorda. They married on November 7,1952 and they were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on June 25, 1971.

He had 16 great grandchildren. Preceded in death by his parents, wife, nine siblings, great-granddaughter Abby Lu Thompson, grandson-in-law Tyson Thursby. He was loved by everyone who knew him! Served for 4 years in the Korean War, worked for Kennecott Copper Mine for 28 years. Loved serving for 17 years in the Manti temple. Enjoyed woodworking, gardening and playing his guitar with his band, ‘The Old Timers’, at different Assisted Living Centers. He adored his family and cherished his testimony of The Savior and his gospel. We would like to thank Gunnison Home Health/Hospice and especially Jessica Shepherd who helped take such good care of him. We are very sad to say that Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, a graveside service will be held with immediate family only. We know dad deserves so much more and loved social gatherings so an announcement will be made after the outbreak is over to invite friends and family to hold a celebration of his life. .
