Another good man from the Promontory community, W. Hague Ellis, friend, good neighbor, mentor and lover of funny jokes and stories, passed away early June 16.
He traveled extensively worldwide and was able in a few words to tell vividly the most interesting parts of those travels. He especially liked taking pictures with his camera.
One person, when asked, said it this way: “He was a great guy, very friendly and congenial.”
We sympathize with his wife and family. He will be missed.
Laura Wheatley, husband Zane, and girls Everly and Georgia joined the Wheatley grandparents and other family members at Dewyville Park Sunday afternoon for a picnic.
The big thing for Everly and Georgia during the week was a visit to their doctor’s office for check-ups and shots. They enjoyed the check-ups but not the shots.
Cleo and Gary Petit report a very nice Father’s Day with their family coming to dinner at their home. Barbecued hamburgers were served along with salads. Everyone brought something to eat. “Everybody left heavier than when they came,” Gary says. Those who attended were Jim and Starr Mitchell, Steven and Ashley Mitchell and daughter Gabrielle, Wendy, Jayden and Braxton Menlove (Russell had to work) and Gary and Cleo Petit.
Boyd Udy drove to Box Elder County Fair grounds Monday evening to help tiny rodeo queens get ready for their age group competition of six years old and under. They were all mounted on their horse but kept under control with lead ropes. McKell Keetch from Promontory was there with her family. “There were half a dozen little horsewomen there,” Boyd says. “It was fun.”
Jim and Starr Mitchell drove up to Oneida Reservoir to fish for Walleye trout and small mouth bass during the week. “Mid-week fishing is quieter and less crowded,” Jim says. The couple caught lots of fish, saw some wild turkeys, and heard, but didn’t see, a baby deer calling out.
In the “How ’bout that department” Jim says their new pup hasn’t been responding to her name “Lady”. So one day Jim said, “Here, Rosie,” and she came eagerly and joyfully. Her name is now Rosie.
