Our father Ronald Lewis Drake (Ron) 84 passed away February 16, 2017 in Orem, Utah. He was born March 25, 1932 in Mehoopany, Pennsylvania to Worthy Henry Drake and Mabel Elavene Wintermute He spent his career as a research scientist and mathematician, modeling problems in air, soil and groundwater contamination. He was diagnosed with Parkinson shortly after retirement.
Despite declining physical abilities (which he met with an acceptance we found admirable), he maintained a voracious habit of reading and learning. He kept up with a broad range of current topics in mathematics and the sciences, and also read widely within the humanities.
In our earliest recollections of our Dad we were taught to pray for our friends, neighbors, relatives and enemies. We asked if we had any "emanies"?.... Dad replied, "no, not now, but some day you may, and we must always pray for them.
We always remember time spent with Dad was time being taught by him. As children, he took us to the zoo and we learned about the animals. Philadelphia has numerous museums and we visited many of them, always being taught about history, art, space travel, etc. We visited the museum of natural history, the wax museum, the Franklin Institute, the Philadelphia Art Museum,trips to Estes Park etc.
Dad taught us through many of the games we played, such as the card game Authors, in the activities we engaged in such as swimming (which he taught us how to do), Dad instilled in us a love of camping and the great outdoors and how to behave safely in nature. In his younger years he was an avid photographer of nature taking hundreds of pictures of flowers, mountains, streams and landscapes. Dad signed some of us, who showed and interest, up for a Science club, where, each month we would receive a special kit , like a rock collection kit, complete with samples of identified rocks, a butterfly net as well as a book on butterfly identification, a book on stars and constellations, etc.
Education and learning was so important to Dad. He attended Drexel Institute of Technology, Penn State and Colorado State University He earned a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering, a master's degree in Mathematics and finally a PhD in Philosophy, Dad attended many summer institute's, authored and published many professional papers and contributed to a number of scientific publications.
In his retirement years when his physical body slowed down, for fun, he filled several spiral ring notebooks with differential equations and would listen to books and lectures on tape/CD. His zest for learning had been a life long process.
Dad has also been such a good example with regard to his kindness, consideration, and generosity to people of all races and ethnicity. He annually made financial contributions to Native American children, Law Enforcement Officers helping under privileged children and numerous other funds. he was a regular contributor to St Josephs Indian School and Paralyzed Veterans of America and Wounded Warriors.
One of our brothers quoted a piece of scripture which seems appropriate to our fathers life and outlook. found in Ecclesiastes it says "A generation comes and a generation goes, but earth abides"
Dad is survived by his six children Chris (Kent) Johnson, Gary (MarieLynn), Barry, David (Nicole Weiss),Dan, John (Susana) and his brother Carl Drake. He is also survived by many grand children, great grand children, nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents and sisters Shirley and Joan.

LaMar (Sandy) Anderson Sandberg
November 29,1933 - February 10, 2017
Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and servant of the Lord, passed away peacefully at the age of 83.
Sandy was born in Granstville, Utah to Joseph Dewey Sandberg and Myrtle Irene Anderson Sandberg. He was the youngest of one sister De Ona Ajax (Joseph) and three brothers; Mervin (Ruby), Joseph (Eleanor), Farrel (Lucy), all who proceeded him in death. Sandy graduated from Grantsville High School with distinction as valedictorian of his class. He attended BYU and was an avid BYU football fan. Sandy served an honorable mission to Buenos Aires Argentina. He loved the people of Argentina and talked of his mission frequently. His mission was a gift from his family who sacrificed and supported him while he served the Lord.
Sandy married his eternal sweetheart, Shirley Hansen in the Salt Lake Temple in 1957. No two people could ever be so much in love. Sandy was a kind, compassionate and loving husband who even when his health was failing, put his wife’s needs first. His family loved him for his example of hard work, service, optimism, humility and selflessness. Sandy loved life and his family to the fullest. He worked in the airline industry and for many years as a Travel Agent. Sandy loved the outdoors. He loved to hunt, fish and spend time in the mountains with his family. He was generous in all things and gave freely of his time and means. He was a master carpenter and loved to keep his yard looking impeccable. He was not a man of the world but was content to serve his Heavenly Father. This brought him peace and happiness. He would always extend his hand to those he came in contact with.
Sandy was a man of faith. He was diligent in his service as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Sandy honored his Priesthood and served on the High Counsel, Counselor in a Bishopric, and as High Priest Group Leader. He even received the Silver Buffalo award after years of dedicated service to the youth in the scouting program. After retirement, Sandy devoted much of his time doing Family History work. He served a second mission as a Family History Consultant at the Utah State Prison. His office was filled with family history group sheets, personal histories, and family trees. Family History was one of his greatest passions and he loved sharing his testimony of it. Even when he required a walker to help him get around, he would always complete his home teaching every month with his wife by his side. It is not uncommon for people to approach his children to let them know how blessed they are to have Sandy as their father. This is a man who was loved and respected by all who knew him.
Sandy is survived by his wife, Shirley Hansen Sandberg; his children: Scott (Sherry), Brian (Rachel), Gary (Lori), and Debra Ohrn (Greg); 10 grandchildren: Josh, (Cassie), Brandon, Michael, Tyler, Kaylee, Baylor, Jasmin, Brianne, Jace, and Garrett and two great grandchildren: Jadyn and Maya.
To his posterity, He leaves his testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ, written with his daily choices of faith in action, love, devotion, service, humility, optimism and selflessness. Sandy lived what he believed and taught everyone who witnessed his life what love truly is.
