Death: Edgar L. Denney

SHARE Death: Edgar L. Denney

Dad's life began on a farm in Swan Lake, Idaho June 22, 1918, born to Lawrence Edward and Emily Larsen Denney. Dad passed away at home and returned to our Heavenly Father October 4, 1998 at the age of 80. He leaves behind his sweetheart and soul mate, Marian Edith Davis. They married in an airplane over Salt Lake City August 31, 1940 and had just shared their 58th anniversary.

Dad learned very early in life how to work hard and take pride in his work. Many truckers will remember "Ed" as one of the best heavy duty mechanics. He was employed by the Treadways at Kenworth Sales and retired after 32 very enjoyable years. As a younger man, Dad enlisted in the Army and served in World War II. He took pride in flying Old Glory at their home. Over the years he has taken pleasure in camping and fishing (even though mom caught more), bowling, a little golf, reading, ball games and visiting with friends in the neighborhood. Most of all Dad loved his family.Survived by his wife, Marian; daughters, Myrna (Ralph E.) Cooley, Vernal; Sheila (H. Lee) Harris, South Jordan; grandchildren, Robyn, Teresa, Doug and Tami; Julee, Jill, Jeff and Jamee; 16 great-grandchildren; four great-great grandchildren; family through marriage, Dorothy Denney, Reese and Cliss Davis, Dale and Jeaneen Davis, J. Blair and Carol Jones, Greg Negard; cousins, friends and neighbors. Preceded in death by parents and brother, Glen Denney.

"We will miss your big hands, soft lips, tight hugs and the funny way you tied your tie."

"It breaks our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. Part of us went with you the day God called you home."

The family would like to express a special thanks to Dr. Lambert, Dr. Fowles, Lorna and to everyone who has been there for Mom and Dad.
