He brightened lives

As we fast approach the holiday season, we think back on things we are thankful for. As the months go swiftly by, it will soon be a year since Edwin “Butch” Dymock past away.

It is hard to believe that his over 35 years of service to the seniors of Tooele County can just go away without a whimper. Even at the end of his life, he was heard to say that the best day of his life was when he received cards of good wishes and a call from the seniors at the center.

I feel some kind of gesture should be made to remember him, either by renaming the Tooele Center after him, or hanging a picture of him prominently in the senior center.

He brightened lives for generations of children in Tooele County as Santa’s helper in schools, family parties and senior activities. Especially this time of year, please don’t forget the effect that he had on all of us.
