r By Brown Family Mortuary

Beloved husband and father, Edwin Lauroyd Westover, age 86, of Santaquin Utah, passed away on February 5, 2018, following a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was born June 23, 1931, in Joseph City, Arizona, to Edwin Lloyd and Laura Hudson Westover.

He married his love LaDean Lamb on March 26, 1958, in the St. George, Utah Temple, and together they had seven children. He served in the Spanish American Mission and was in the Army during the Korean War. He graduated from Brigham Young University and was employed by Geneva (Keigley Quarry). He loved being in his orchards or on the mountain, but his greatest joy was his family. He was so proud of his posterity for whom he continually expressed his love.

He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in various callings. He was a stake patriarch at the time of his death. He had unwavering faith in Heavenly Father’s plan of Salvation and Jesus Christ’s special role in that plan. He was the epitome of Christlike attributes. He always saw the good in everyone and believed with all his heart that people can change. He had a kind disposition, and the world was a better place because he was in it. He will be dearly missed.

Ed is preceded in death by his parents, Laura and Lloyd Westover; siblings, Sherla Bingham, Ray Westover, Nora DeGraw and grandson Zachary Westover.

He is survived by his wife, LaDean Westover; children, Robert (Sherrie) Westover, Gary Westover, Linda (Randall) Larsen, Janice (Michael) Sorensen, Mark (Rebecca) Westover, Karen (Jared) Blauer, Sherri Taylor, and sisters, Carol Avery and Nadine Alexander. He and LaDean have twenty-two grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren, who think he is the greatest person on earth.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, February 10, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at the Santaquin Utah Stake Center, 45 S 500 W. Viewings will also be held at the stake center, Friday, February 9th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm and Saturday from 9:00 to 10:40 am prior to services.
