Ronald Cleon Dennis
Dad passed away peacefully in his home, Wednesday August 03, 2012. He was born September 12, 1932 to Thomas Julian and Beatrice “Anna” Weekes in Malad, Idaho. He was raised in St. John & Malad, Idaho. Graduated from Malad High School and attended Idaho State College. Dad served his country in France, during the Korean War. He married Wilorie Kay Dennis on June 24, 1957. She passed away June 06, 2005.
Dad tinkered on the farm, from an early age, working on farm equipment, cars and such. He worked in Idaho Falls, Idaho at KIFI-TV while starting his new family. Later employed at Thiokol Corp in Promontory, Utah. A career with the Massey Ferguson dealership in Tremonton, Utah went on for 20+ years, an endeavor in which he was much in demand, both in Northern Utah and Southern Idaho. He continued to service the farming and ranching communities while employed at Buttars Tractor until his retirement.
Even with retirement Dad’s work was not done. A faithful companion throughout their marriage, he took care of Mom during the years she needed him most. Ever the care taker of family, friends, neighbors and community, Dad, along with our sister, Ann, and family members, over saw the care of his sisters in their later years.
With Dad’s work on earth done, our Father, moved on to his next task. Dad you’re proof, there is good in the world.
Dad was preceded in death by his wife, parents, siblings and spouses.
Survived by his children Floyd (Cindy) Dennis, Tommy Dennis, Marvin Dennis and Ann Dennis, four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

BRIGHAM CITY – Our beloved mother, sister, “granny,” and friend, Flo Crossley, passed away on Thursday, Aug. 2, 2012.

She graduated from Box Elder High School in 1943 and married Ephriam Crossley on Dec. 28, 1945. They raised their family in Brigham City, Utah, where she lived for more than 70 years. She enjoyed a 17-year career at JC Penney in Brigham City, where she made life-long friends.
Flo liked putting together jigsaw puzzles and spending time with her children and grandchildren. She also enjoyed playing BINGO and going to Wendover.
Flo always had a zeal for life and a great sense of humor, and she kept those around her laughing until her final days. Her family will be forever grateful for her unwavering support and love for each one of them during all of life’s ups and downs. Flo lived her life with integrity and courage and will always be remembered for her generous heart. We will indeed miss her wit, her laughter, and her love.
