Lavar Grant Lougy joined his soulmate in heaven Saturday, Jan. 28, 2023. He was born in Tooele, Utah, April 20, 1939, to Grant and Deloris Lougy. He had two children from his first marriage, a son Darrell Scott Lougy, and daughter Beckey (Mike) Huldt. He married his soulmate Dixie Brown on Oct. 13, 1974. Together they had a son Richard (Holly) Lougy. He had nine grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and four great-great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents Grant and Deloris Lougy, wife Dixie Brown, son Darrell Scott Lougy, father-in-law Charles Brown, and sister Judy Fonger.
Dad lived in Tooele all of his life. He worked for the government at TAD and Dugway for many, many years until retiring and enjoying life with Mom working in the shop and then traveling to craft shows. Dad loved the outdoors, camping, fishing, and every kind of hunting you could think of. His favorite place to fish was at Strawberry Reservoir. He also loved going out on the side-by-sides exploring.
Dad was good at everything he did, from woodworking, to cooking, and sewing. He was good with his hands and could fix just about anything. Dad was a man of many talents. A protecter, teacher, and friend. Our Dad was a great man. He will be truly missed. Always and forever in our hearts.
There will be a viewing at Tate Mortuary, Thursday, Feb. 2, 2023, from 9 to 10:45 a.m., and a graveside service to follow at the Tooele City Cemetery at 11 a.m. There will be a luncheon at the 7th Ward LDS church, 1025 Utah Ave. The family would also like to thank those from Rocky Mountain Care Hospice who took amazing care of Dad.
I would like to say goodby to a high school classmate and swim team member. Glad to hear he had a good life and the memories will always be of the good times we had. Rest in peace. Keith Pugh
