In a small log cabin in Centerfield on April 3, 1931, Arthur Devern Stowe joined the family of Arthur Bernard (who had just months previously passed away) and Velma Veona Stowe. His love of the mountains, hunting, fishing and just enjoying the beauties of nature began in this little mountain valley and flourished throughout his earthly journey. With the love of seven siblings (Arthur, Keith, Garth, Ila, Vonza, Lee and Lonnie), this small band took on life, learning and growing together. He served his country honorably in the Korean War from 1951 to 1953. In May 1953, he married his sweetheart Ruth Renee’ Olsen. Together they raised and loved their family: Shelley (Dallas), Keven, LuAnn (Ryan), Byren (Cheryl) and Doug (Kathy). They traveled to many places together but made their home in Kearns and later Tooele. Art (Dee to so many) developed many skills during his life time: electrician, carpet installation, gardening, landscaping and woodworking. With each task his signature ethic of doing whatever was required to the best of his ability was always evident. With the same tenacity and no training in keyboard or computer he added genealogy to this list of passions adding more than 4,000 names to the PAF data base as he contributed information his sister Ila had researched. Pictures were added to as many names as he could collect, providing as accurate of a record as possible. His desire of taking his sweetheart to the temple was realized in August 2011. Family has always been his greatest love and he has a posterity who loves and will miss him deeply, including 20 grandchildren 25 great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family. He was preceded in death by his parents and brothers Arthur, Keith, and Lee. On April 2, he left this life as he had lived it, quietly, peacefully and with dignity at home in Gunnison, the place that was always home to his heart. Funeral services were held April 9 at 11 a.m. at the LDS 17th Ward, 132 N. 520 East in Tooele. Viewings were held April 8 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Redwood Memorial Mortuary, 6500 S. Redwood Road in West Jordan and again one hour prior to services at the church on Tuesday. Interment, Lakeview Memorial Park, 1640 E. Lakeview Drive, Bountiful.
