Stacy appreciates the support of her CrossFit Mt Olympus family. Please send any messages to email@example.com and I'll pass them on.
Thanks to the outstanding coaches and instructors who have been carrying a lot of the weight. You make this the best place in the world to workout.
Joseph Richard Smith
Joseph Richard Smith, age 85, passed away at home on Sunday, March 13, 2011 in Bountiful, Utah. He suffered from Alzheimer’s disease, finally succumbing to pneumonia. Dad, you fought the good fight, you kept the faith and you endured to the end with a smile and a laugh, and can now enjoy your “Home on the Eternal Range.”
He was born December 18, 1925 in Kamas, Utah, the son of Douglas L and Cora Murdock Smith. Joe married Jeannette Ashton Hanks on July 2, 1954 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. He was an active member of the LDS Church and especially loved his 20 years as a guide on Temple Square.
Dad was a devoted brother, husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He lived a life of service to his family, friends, church and community. His work ethic was unmatched, his integrity pure and his honesty never questioned.
After attending the University of Utah, Joe spent his career in real estate and mortgage banking, working for Miller & Viele, Investors Diversified Services, Maple Hills Realty, Century 21 Real Estate and as broker-owner of Aspen Realty. He finished his career working more than a decade with United Savings Bank, then Washington Mutual. He was a former officer of the Utah Mortgage Bankers Association and served on the Salt Lake Board of Realtors Brokers’ Council. In 1958, Joe became a charter member of the Bountiful Sertoma Club, and served as vice president, club president, Utah District Governor and a national chaplain.
Joe served two missions, first as a young man in the Canadian Mission, and later with his eternal companion at the Philippines, Manila Missionary Training Center. He was a counselor in two bishoprics, bishop of the Bountiful 37th Ward and Meadows Branch President, among his other callings. He was a dedicated home teacher.
He is survived by his wife, Jeannette; his children: Steve (Melissa) Smith, Doug (RoJeanne) Smith, Shauna (Jim) Hanna, Royal (Jennifer) Smith, Joey (Judy) Smith, David (Tiffany) Smith, Stacy (Jeremy) Johnson; his sister Kay (Gale) Jensen; 24 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents and great-granddaughter Emma.
A funeral celebrating Dad’s life will be held at noon on Friday, March 18, 2011 at the Bountiful 37th Ward, 1540 North 400 East, Bountiful. Friends may call Thursday evening, March 17 from 6 pm to 8 pm at Russon Brothers Mortuary, 295 North Main, Bountiful, and again on Friday morning from 10:30 am to 11:30 am at the church.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to Luis, Alice, and all of his caregivers at Inspiration Hospice for their loving care and concern for Dad.
God be with you till we meet again, Dad.
