1928 – 2020
Carsten Clyde Pomeroy passed away Friday, May 8, 2020, in Tooele, Utah. He was born June 22, 1928, to Clyde Henry and Leona Emma Wilshusen Pomeroy in Boulder, Colorado. He and his family moved from Colorado to Provo, Utah, in early 1943. He attended schools in Boulder and Denver, Colorado, and Provo, Utah. Carsten married his beautiful wife Billie Rae Callister in Elko, Nevada, on May 8, 1954. Billie passed away Jan. 5, 2009. Ironically, Carsten passed away on their wedding anniversary.
Carsten worked in various capacities during his life at Standard Oil of California, Geneva Steel, Union Pacific RR, Deseret Chemical Warfare Depot (D.C.W.D), Bradshaw Auto Parts, and Hill Air Force Base. He was a journeyman aircraft and automotive machinist and retired as a management analyst from Tooele Army Depot (TEAD) in 1983. He served in the US Navy aboard the USS Grimes and the US Army in the 2nd Armored Division (Hell on Wheels) and received his pilot’s license from Charlesworth Flight School in 1949.
Carsten is survived by his sons Guy C. Pomeroy (Lori), Tim L. Pomeroy, and Rand Scott Curtis of Tualatin, Oregon; granddaughters Matti Pomeroy and Micall Sagers (BT); grandsons Brian and Matthew Curtis; great-grandson Carston Ridge Sagers. He was preceded in death by his parents, wife Billie, and son Gregg (deceased 1979).
Per Carsten’s request he will be cremated. A private gathering for his family will be held at a later date. Many sincere thanks to his wonderful sisters-in-law Gloria Callister, Betty Dunn, and Beverly Macari, for their visits, phone calls, and letters. Special thanks to Dad’s neighbors Jake and Julie Buzianis, and David and Jackie Gallegos for looking after him (day or night). A special thank you to his lifelong friend, Hannelore Cook, in Phoenix, Arizona. Their friendship began in Germany while Dad was in the service and continued until he passed away. We would also like to thank the amazing staff at Cottage Glen, Rocky Mountain Care, and Rocky Mountain Hospice for the exceptional care they gave Dad. Another sincere thanks to Dr. Beazer and his staff, and Cole Houghton, Tate Mortuary Director.
Dad, we will miss you. You were a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. Till we meet again. We love you.
