Obituary: RINDLISBACH, JUNIOR

Junior Rindlisbach1920 ~ 2013Our kind, beloved, husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather was called home on Friday, December 6, 2013 to join his eternal sweetheart within six days of her passing. They are reunited together in love. What a joyful reunion they are having free of physical pain and suffering. For J.R., a cloud of confusion and past years of forgetfulness have finally blown away. He was born April 6, 1920 to Leo Rindlisbach and Hannah Merilda Crane Rindlisbach in Riverton, Utah. He met his sweetheart at a Sandy Amusement Hall dance. He attended Jordan High. He served his country in WWII in the Pacific theater. He was a master carpenter, and worked for Bower's Construction Company building homes on the Olympus Cove bench. He also was a foreman with Boise Cascade. He was a quality craftsman, and his work was done with exactness. Junior was over the maintenance and food purchasing for the Utah Boy's Ranch. He enjoyed working with the boys there. He loved fishing, swimming, gardening and especially being with his family. His home life meant everything to him. Junior was a polite and kind man. He always held the door open. A gentle man. He had a special spot in his heart for the gospel of Jesus Christ. He was an active member of the LDS Church. He served as Stake and Ward Sunday School Superintendent. He was also a counselor in a Bishopric, an Executive Secretary, High Priest's Group Leader, and he became a Bishop. He later was called to be a Stake Patriarch in Riverton. He loved working with the youth. He enjoyed building scenery for roadshows. He voluntered in the Jordan River and Timpanogos Temples. He and his sweetheart served in the Independence, Missouri mission. Junior faithfully served as a home teacher until the very end. It was a joy to those he had a stewardship over.
