Obituary: Farrell Adams Hess

1926 ~ 2003

Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend, Farrell Adams Hess, 77, passed away Sunday, Sept. 28, 2003 of complications related to Parkinson's Disease. He was surrounded by his loving family.

Farrell was born April 4, 1926, in Farmington, UT, the second son of Gilbert Lorenzo and Elzada Adams Hess. He attended Davis High School.

Married Jeanne Wallace on June 8, 1945 in Salt Lake City; later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

Farrell completed electronics school after proudly serving with the U.S. Army Air Corps, 133rd A.A.C.S. Squadron, in World War II. Instead of working in the field of electronics, Farrell began his own business of food distributing (Hessco) in Utah County. He loved his family, he loved his work, and he loved his friends. Farrell loved to hunt, fish and golf. He especially loved traveling the world with his sweetheart. He was a remarkable man, who enjoyed working with his hands, and could fix anything.

Farrell was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and served in various positions. He especially loved the Sunday School.

Our special thanks to the Alta Ridge Alzheimer staff for their special love and care. Also, to Hospice of Hope for their wonderful care and devoted services to Dad and our family.

Farrell is survived by his wife of 58 years, Jeanne; daughter, Cheryl Argyle (Paul); son, Scott Farrell Hess (Trudy); brother, Lowell Hess (Wilda); grandchildren, Greg Argyle (Melanie), Todd Argyle (Sarah), Neil Argyle, Tracy, Jennifer, Lindsay and Elizabeth; and four great-grand-children. Preceded in death by his brother, Don Hess.

Funeral services will be Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2003 at 12 Noon at Goff Mortuary, 8090 So. State, where friends may call Tuesday 6-8 p.m. and Wednesday one hour prior to services. Interment, Farmington City Cemetery at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions be made to Hospice of Hope.
