On March 9, 1996, we lost one heck of a good husband, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, and friend to everyone.

Heb was born June 16, 1910, in Clear Creek, Utah. He was lovingly raised by Heber Ward and Josephine Ward Lundy. He married his best friend and sweetheart, Marjorie Johnson, on October 14, 1933, in Huntington. They shared 63 loving and happy years.Heb was one of the first union organizers and union presidents in the Carbon/Emery area for U.M.W.A. He had a unique way of bringing the mine workers together to form a strong union that still exists today. He retired from Sunnyside Mine in 1974. He was a staunch Democrat.

Heb loved to spend time out in the shop with his son Dennis and his grandsons, where he would joke that he was the boss and give his grandsons a "hard time." He would go to the shop every morning to visit the old cronies that came to check in. He loved to do chores with his son Joe at the farm, and visiting with his daughter Diane.

Heb and Marjorie's home was always open to everyone, and he always said his table always had room for one more. Every kid, young and old, called him "Grandpa." He loved his family and enjoyed his family vacations and trips with his family.

His kids, grandkids and great-grandkids will remember his unique sense of humor, playing cards, B.O.5, Old Spice, strawberry blondes, no teeth, his tattoo, tall tales, hunting, desert trips in the old bus, and old country music.

Heb and Marjorie had six children: Heber Dennis (Rose), Floyd Deon (deceased) (Karen), Marjorie Diane, Devon (deceased), Joann (deceased), and Frankie Joe (Berta); 16 grandkids, 32 great-grandkids; many nieces and nephews and a community of friends.

"Don't chase too many strawberry blondes, Grandpa!"

Funeral services will be Wednesday, March 13, at 1 p.m. in the Huntington 1st Ward Chapel, 400 East 100 South. Friends may call at Fausett Mortuary in Castle Dale on Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. or at the church, one hour prior to services. Burial will be in the Huntington Cemetery.
