Fred Harry Bath, 78, beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend returned back to our Father in Heaven peacefully on July 2, 2001 at his home in East Midvale, Utah, after many years of illness.

Harry was born March 20, 1923 in Castle Gate, Carbon County, Utah to Fred Harry Bath Sr. and Laura Ella Babcock.

Harry grew up in American Fork where he loved to hunt and fish. Harry had a great passion for fishing, old trains, and telling stories to his children and grandchildren about his many life experiences. He graduated from American Fork High School and attended BYU. He served in the Army Air Corps during World War II.

Harry married Faye Robinson on October 12, 1951. Their marriage was solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple in February, 1966. They were blessed with six children.

Harry loved working with his hands. He was a true craftsman and builder, having designed and built many homes. In 1958, he founded Harry's Pattern Shop where he had the opportunity to do work on many of the LDS Temples.

Harry enjoyed being with his family taking many road trips throughout the years. He had a very generous heart and was willing to help others in need. Harry loved his grandchildren more than life. One of their favorite memories was going with Grandpa to the 7-11 and buying anything they wanted.

Harry will be missed by his wife, children, 19 grandchildren, and one great-grandchild with two more coming in August.

He is survived by his wife, Faye; children, Allen (Karen); Lynn (Marla); Kent (Allison); Gary (Dana); Susan (Blane); his grandchildren; great-grandchildren, and brother, W. Duane Bath. Harry was preceded in death by his newborn son, David.

The family would like to express their gratitude and love to the many caretakers and friends, especially to Lael and Kathleen Harvey, and Lee and Gloriene Barney, and the Winget family.
