Dad was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and stayed true to his religion throughout his life. 

Dad’s family was always number one and the most important to him. His children always knew they were loved. He led by example and loved our mom and treated her with the utmost respect. 

Dad was preceded in death by his sweetheart, who passed away on their 68th wedding anniversary, his parents; seven brothers and five sisters; and son-in-law Grant McArthur. Dad was the last living member of his family. He is survived by his four children: Larry (Teresa) Perkins, Bonnie (Tom) Smith, Shirlene (Brent) Packer and Jeff (Heather) Perkins; 16 grandchildren; 45 great-grandchildren, with two on the way; two great-great-grandchildren with one on the way. 

We wish to thank our other family: Sterling Court, The Meadows and Canyon Health for their care given over the past three years. We are so grateful.
