September 23, 1947 – February 5, 2016
Lloyd Snow Sandberg, 94, slipped peacefully into eternity February 5, 2016. He was born August 30, 1921 in Hurricane, Utah to Chauncey and Josephine Snow Sandberg. He married and was sealed for time and eternity to LaNorma Seegmiller September 23, 1947 in the St. George Utah Temple.
Lloyd’s life exhibited his love for God, Family, and Country. He served an LDS Mission in the Eastern States before serving in WWII. He graduated from Dixie College and BYU with a teaching degree and spent his career teaching business classes at Hurricane High School. He also spent 30 years as a park ranger, first at Pipe Springs National Monument and then Zion National Park. Lloyd and LaNorma raised their family on a small 4.5-acre farm on what was the outskirts of Hurricane. Gardening and raising animals proved to be an excellent way to instill in his posterity the importance of family and a good work ethic.
Lloyd remained faithful and true to his LDS covenants even serving as a Ward Librarian last year at age 93. He and LaNorma enjoyed their LDS mission to Venezuela in 1989, many years serving in the St. George Temple, and their weekly institute class. Lloyd was a proud member of the American Legion and the Sons of the Utah Pioneers. But his crowning joy was his family.
He is survived by his beautiful bride of 68 years, LaNorma (Hurricane); children: Sharon & Guy Hinchcliff (North Ogden, UT), Curtis & Jean Sandberg (Elk Grove, CA), Susan & Bevin Johnson (Hurricane), Cindy & Kim Booth (Upton, WY), Brent & Allyson Sandberg (North Logan, UT), Jerald & Lesa Sandberg (St. George, UT), Shayne & Julie Hutchings (Apple Valley, UT); 35 grandchildren; 84 great grandchildren; and sister Elaine Adams (Parowan, UT). He is preceded in death by his parents; brother, Garth Sandberg; 2 grandchildren, Mandy Johnson and Challes Sandberg; and 2 great granddaughters, Krystal Bates and Jordan Miller.
