Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r Roy Jacobson, 82, our loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, passed peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Jan. 14, 2017. Roy was born on July 16, 1934, in Upton, Utah, to Alonzo and Mary Williams Jacobson.

He grew up on the family farm and worked in his father’s coal mine in Upton. He attended and graduated from North Summit High School. In high school he started dating and later married his high school sweetheart Ann Newton on June 3, 1955, in the Salt Lake Temple. They lived in Upton in the same house for 62 years. He went to work at Brown’s Dairy as a welder building the milk tanks and later worked at Devils Slide Cement Plant for 35 years.

Roy enjoyed the outdoors, camping, hunting and fishing, and he loved to work on the farm. He enjoyed spending time with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He could always be seen driving down to the farm with his dogs Peaches and Emma. His family tradition was picnics on Sundays down by the creek.
