David Cluff McBride having finished his earthly mission, returned to the arms of our loving Heavenly Father on June 25, 2017. David was born on February 7, 1965 to Gary Phil and Leisel Cluff McBride in Santa Monica, CA.
Because of the effects of German Measles David had significant physical & mental challenges. He was blessed to be in the constant loving care of his parents, extended family and many kind and patient caregivers throughout his life. He was a resident at the Utah State Developmental Center in American Fork, UT at the time of his passing.
Even with David’s special needs we saw a mischievous, fun personality. Heaven help you if you tried to sit on his couch. He loved the individuals who worked with him and cared for him. He had a unique way of identifying them by touch and smell. He also loved music, mainly songs that had low rumbling tones that he was able to feel through vibrations. David personified love, patience, and endurance and taught his family the importance of these attributes.
He is preceded in death by his loving grandparents, his sisters Sherry Lynn McBride, and Darleis Nelson (who we have no doubt have taken him under their wings). He is survived by his parents, his brothers Kenneth (Lynnette), Clarence (Lori), and sister Starleen (Paulo) Blaser, and brother-in-law Karl (Kim) Nelson and numerous nieces and nephews and extended family.
A private family memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 1, 2017 at 10 a.m. at the Anderson & Sons Mortuary in American Fork, UT.
Interment will be at the Pima Cemetery in Pima, Arizona on July 5, 2017 at 9 a.m.
David’s family wishes to thank all those unselfish caregivers who gave so much of their time and talents to bless David’s life.

Janice Wing Jarman Rooney
Janice loved dancing and did so most of her life. She became a charter member of the CLOGGING GRANDMOTHERS. They were a splendid, professional dancing group who performed at many venues for over 20 years. On June 21, 2017, on a warm summer breeze, Janice danced away to her next performance. If you ever saw a woman, happily clogging down a super market aisle while shopping, that was Janice!
Janice was born in American Fork and attended grades 1-12 there. After High School, she married Ray Jarman. They had five children. Later, after her divorce, she married widower Jim Rooney who had 4 children from his first marriage. Janice was one courageous lady who was able to take over the raising of a 10 year old girl and 8 year old boy with Down syndrome. Unlike so many blended families, ours came together like melted butter. There was no “his, hers and ours.” All we had were OURS and we, Janice and I (Jim), could not be more proud of our children (who are now wonderful adults). Janice was the first resident of Pheasant Run Alzheimer’s Special Care Center in South Jordan. As such, she was given the title “Janice Rooney, the First Lady of Pheasant Run”. She spent the last 280 days of her life in Pheasant Run, visited nearly daily by her husband and young son Robert. While a resident, she made (and then forgot) several friends.
The staff was always working to be sure that she was safe, secure and as happy as possible. My thanks goes out to them.
She was preceded in her death by her parents Norman B Wing and Alithea Stagg Wing. She is survived by: her only brother Norm Wing (Richland, WA), her husband Jim Rooney, her sons: Brian Jarman (Meridian, ID), Trent Jarman (West Jordan), N. Kurt Jarman (Perry, UT), Michael Rooney (Placentia, CA), Russell Rooney (Syracuse, UT), and Robert Rooney; her daughters: Denise Jarman Blades (Boise, ID), Camille Jarmon Strong (Layton, UT), Debra Rooney Dutson (West Jordan) and Katrina Sisco (our honorary daughter).
Funeral services will be held Tuesday, June 27, 2017 at 11 a.m. in the Anderson & Sons Mortuary, 49 East 100 North, American Fork. A viewing will be held Monday from 6-8 p.m. and Tuesday from 9:45-10:45 a.m. prior to the services. Janice will be buried in the American Fork Cemetery. Please share a memory at andersonmortuary.com.

He spent much of his youth in Dallas, Texas and London, England.

He married his eternal best friend, Melissa Anne Plothow, on March 21, 1992 in the Salt Lake Temple. Rod completed his Bachelors of Finance and MBA at the University of Utah. His pride and joy were his three boys that he loved spending time with on dirt bikes racing through the dry lake beds of Las Vegas. He spent many hours off-road racing, including the 2007 Baja 1000 with his "Band of Brothers Racing team," made up of family and friends. He enjoyed his current church calling of teaching the 11 year old boys, spending hours upon hours preparing his lessons. His favorite calling was working with the young men in his ward, including his favorite campout, The Klondike. Rod loved sports, played rugby at BYU, and was an avid University of Utah fan, along with never giving up his support for his Denver Broncos.
Rod is survived by his wife and children: Jordan (Kassi) Stevenson, Jacob Issac Stevenson (serving in the South Africa Johannesburg Mission), Hayden Dean Stevenson; his parents, and siblings: Angie (Todd) Lythgoe, Ryan (Christy) Stevenson, David (Liz) Stevenson, and his parent in-law Roger H. and Mary Gail Plothow.

EDWARD HOWARD MOCK
FEBUARY 5, 1921 – JUNE 9, 2017
Edward Howard Mock is the son of Joseph Harley and Chloe Jolley Mock. He was the youngest of five children. He had two older brothers, Henry and Charley, and two older sisters, Mary and Viola. He was born on February 5, 1921 in Wingonon, OK. Dad was named after the doctor who delivered him. They lived in the Wingonon area for many years. Dad attended grade school in Wingonon and high school in Chelsea, OK where he graduated with the class of 1939.
Dad worked for Harmon and Whitehill Oil Company and Roofing World Construction at the Powder Plant near Pryor, OK.
Dad was drafted into the U. S. Army in October 1942 at Fort Sill, OK and assigned to Camp Gruber, OK to serve with the 339th Field Artillery, 88th Infantry Division. This was the first all draftee infantry division to enter combat in World War II. After training in the states, the division shipped out to Africa for additional training then on to Italy.
Dad was assigned to HQ company of the 339th Field Artillery. His responsibility was to keep communication lines open between HQ and the field units. Dad’s group would string phone lines for miles and setup switch boards making sure the war efforts were coordinated. Dad received the Bronze Star for action taken in December 1944. A portion of the citation reads; “On or about December 5, 1944, crossing a snow-covered mountainside on foot in order to locate a break in a wire line, Sgt. Mock and another soldier had to undergo heavy enemy shelling. Having repaired the line, they took cover, only to find that the line had broken again. The two soldiers thereafter had to repair the line under shellfire, taking cover at intervals. Sgt. Mock’s high sense of responsibility and his knowledge of his work have been important to his organization.” Signed Major General Paul W. Kendall. Dad never spoke about his Bronze Star and when he did talk about the war, it wasn’t about the horror of war that he saw. He is a true patriot who loves this country.
Upon returning from the war, Dad and his brother Charley, who served in the Pacific, left home and traveled to Rangely, Colorado seeking work. Both were hired by the Texas Company, later to be known as Texaco. For the next forty years Dad worked for Texaco in Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Montana, and North Dakota. He worked in the following divisions and positions: as a roustabout and as a field, production and drilling foreman. Dad’s last assignment was that of a drilling foreman because the company had so few that understood drilling. Dad and Mom lived for 20 years in Maeser where they were surrounded by so many great friends.
During his employment at Rangely, Dad met his sweetheart, Hughla May Stewart, who worked at a grocery store. They were married on March 2, 1947 at mom’s parents’ farm in Jensen, Utah. While living in Calpet, Wyoming, Dad found the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple and their four children, Ronald, Marsha, Michael, and Debra, were sealed to them for time and eternity. Dad’s church callings included serving in a bishopric, executive secretary, ward clerk, and high priest group secretary. Dad loved serving the Lord and taught his children the importance of service. His desire is for all his posterity to remain close to the Lord and to serve. We have great memories of vacations, camping, fishing, and family get togethers that will always remind us of Dad and Mom.
On March 31, 1994 Mom, the love of his life, passed away. Dad was heartbroken as his companion of 47 years was called home. Dad continued to live in Maeser for the next four years. Dad married Ynez Moton, a childhood friend. He moved to California where Ynez lived. Ynez had one daughter, Bobbie, who has three sons; John, David, and Steve. He also gained two granddaughters, Natalie and Elizabeth. Ynez passed away on June 2, 2016 and shortly thereafter, Dad moved to Delta, Utah to live with his youngest daughter, Debra and her husband, Mike.
Dad was proceeded in death by his eternal companion, Hughla, his second wife, Ynez, brothers Henry and Charley, sisters Mary and Viola, parents Joseph and Chloe Mock, and granddaughter Amanda Miles. Dad leaves behind 16 grandchildren and 30 great grandchildren. His children Ronald (Linda) Mock, Marsha Huelskamp, Michael (Kathy) Mock, and Debra (Michael) Bettis and Bobbie Rodgers.
Services will be held Friday June 16, 2017 at the Highland 4th Ward located at 5848 W 11000 N, Highland, Utah at 10:00 a.m. A viewing will be held from 8:45 – 9:45. After the services, Dad will be transported to Maeser, Utah where a viewing will take place at the Maeser 3rd Ward located at 2575 N 1500 W, Vernal, Utah from 6-8 p.m. Interment will take place Saturday at 10:00 a.m. at the Jensen Cemetery with Military rites.
