Samuel Douglas Weaver
Birth - October 13, 2017 (10:33:31 p.m.) – Death – October 24, 2017 (4:10 a.m.)
He weighed 7 lbs 7 oz and was 21 inches long.
He died peacefully in Mommy's arms, during the night, at home, from Hypoplastic Heart Syndrome and Heterotaxy Syndrome. (A two chambered, re-wired heart, and organs rearranged).
Samuel was hugged and kissed and told “I love you” many many times while in Mommy's tummy, and many many times outside of Mommy's tummy. We were all so happy to welcome him to our family for his short stay.
Samuel's physical anomalies were known about since May 2017, and our family has been able to do much to prepare for Samuel's short stay here on earth.
Samuel is the son of Patrick Trajan Weaver and Janille Kathryn Weaver.
He is survived by 2 sisters and 1 brother: Kathryn Belle Weaver, Rachael Eve Weaver, Daniel Patrick Weaver. Surviving grandparents: Trajan and Karen Weaver, Robyn Sanks, Great-Grandma Joyce Evans. Preceded in death by grandpa: Gary Keith Sanks.
He was born lovingly at home in the water, in Lehi, UT.
Such a beautiful baby. He was so strong for 1 week. He would keep his hands close to his face. He would hold his fingers around our fingers. He latched on to nurse very well, and went from bottle to nursing beautifully. He would cry when his diaper got changed, and he didn't like to get a bath. He was almost always in somebody's arms, and even his first checkup with the midwife was in Mommy's arms.
Brother and sisters loved to hold their baby brother, and give him kisses throughout the day.
Celebration of Life Memorial in place of a funeral will be in Lehi on Saturday, November 4, 2017 11:30-2 open house style. Samuel's cremation urn will be at the memorial service at the home of Patrick and Janille Weaver.
Samuel was able to fulfill his mission to receive a body here on earth, and gain a little bit of experience. He even learned what a big burp feels like. He was courageous and perfect.
Our family is grateful for the Eternal Plan Of Salvation, and we look forward to the millennium when we can see Samuel grow up. Until then, Samuel will be our family's angel.

Please share a memory below.
Michael was born on 24 June 1937 in Ventura, California. He was the son of Arlo W. Harris and Marguerite Fisher Harris of Ojai, California. Michael is the oldest of three children including Ella A. Christensen of Kanosh, Utah, and Jon A. Harris (deceased).
Michael’s father owned several service stations in Ventura County. Michael grew up in Ojai near his Grandpa and Grandma Harris who had moved to the valley in the 1920’s. His formative years were spent “helping” around his dad’s service station and at his grandfather’s businesses (ice house and butcher shop). In December 1941, the United States was pulled into WWII which affected his father’s ability to continue his business. The war affected Michael as well, he saw the rationing of food and material products. During the war, the Harris family moved to Oxnard, California, where they stayed until Michael was a freshman in high school.
In 1952, they moved to Crescent, Oregon where Michael’s family owned a motel along Highway 97. At the time, this was the fastest route from the central valley of California to Oregon. Here, Michael spent his time helping with the motel, studying for school and drawing. He graduated from Gilchrist High School in 1955.
Michael was accepted at Brigham Young University and attended there for three years. Summers were spent working for the US Forest Service. He always said that this job was a great blessing for him because it helped pay for school each year.
In 1959, he was called as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He served for just over two and a half years in Hong Kong and Taiwan. This was a time of tremendous personal growth through service and teaching the gospel to many who had never heard of Christianity.
Michael arrived home from his mission in 1961 and returned to BYU, graduating with his B.A. in art in 1963. In February of 1963, he married LindaGay Dean, who grew up in Riverside, California. They met while attending art classes at BYU. He finished his student teaching and Master’s degree in 1964.
After graduation, Michael started his first professional job teaching art at Norte Vista High School in Riverside, California. This is where all three of their children were born (Laura, Jonathan and Nathan). Michael and Linda moved back to Ventura County, California, in 1970. Michael taught art at Channel Islands High School until about 1977, at which time he moved to Adolfo Camarillo High School. This is where he taught until his retirement in 1997. His 33 years of teaching was challenging and rewarding.
Michael was very involved with serving in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints during his lifetime. He served in leadership in the Camarillo area from about 1975 to 1996. In 1997, he was called to serve as Mission President in Taipei, Taiwan (1997 to 2000). He was again able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Taiwan 36 years after his original service. Michael and LindaGay continued their service to the church by assisting in the LDS Los Angeles Temple from 2000 to 2013.
Michael’s life was full of service to others. He was always looking for ways to help those that needed a lift up. He was able to serve others through work, church, and family. He also enjoyed sharing his skills of art and design. Most of his art was shared with others as gifts for special occasions. There are hundreds of his prints displayed in homes of friends and relatives across the country. He loved to do printmaking (silkscreen, lithography, and woodblock). He also painted with oils on canvas and board. His love for art and drawing was a passion of his from his earliest years and continued throughout his life.
Michael and LindaGay have lived in Camarillo for 47 years, in the same home they purchased when they moved to the area in 1970. Michael is survived by his wife LindaGay, daughter Laura, sons, Jonathan (Jennifer) and Nathan, four grandchildren (Jonah, Marguerite, Elijah, and Michael), and his sister, Ella A. Christensen.

The family of Michael Fredrick Bromley announce with sadness and joy the passing of their beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and brother. He completed his earthly assignment on October 17, 2017, at his home in Saratoga Springs in the presence of his family.
Michael was born on August 17, 1941 in the old American Fork Hospital to Margaret Green Bromley and Adair Wootton Bromley. He joined a wonderful family Robert, Adair, Jess, Carolyn and Richard. At 5 years of age, he contracted polio and was paralyzed below the waist. The Sister Kinney treatment, under the direction of the County Nurse, Mabel Jones, was administered by his mother, sister, and friends. He recovered to lead a full and active life.
Following his graduation from American Fork High School, he attended Utah State University. He was called to serve in the Southern States Mission where a firm testimony and eternal friendships were made. He loved to serve his Heavenly Father and was called as Bishop of the American Fork 11th Ward. He loved the members so much and those friendships continued to bless him throughout his life.
On April 1, 1965, Michael and Catherine Faye Reed were married in the Los Angeles LDS Temple by President Benjamin Bowring. They were blessed to be parents of Michael (Gloria), Reed (Rhonda), Jess (Sarah), Lori (Colin), Trisha (Chris), John (Sandra) and James (Darcelle). 33 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. Mike and Cathy had a testimony of the Lamanite Placement Program and treasured these children as their own: Ben Dixson; LaVina Greymountain (Alex) Nez; Dana Jones; Jackie Kinlacheny; Tammy Joseph (Dan) Thompson; Garrilyn Begay; Philbert Yazzie; and Keralee Joseph. The Bromley Family also includes Pakeina (Maile) Latu; Rick Ledbedder, Lucretia Barber; Rotary Exchange students Peter Juul and Silvia Bleyer
Mike enjoyed growing up in a farming environment and desired to raise his family in a similar setting. Following his mission, he began that dream with one coop of chickens. Some of his favorite memories were working with Mike, Scott, Dennis, Bill, Julie, Lori, Juana, Guadalupe and countless others to expand the operation. The U S Jaycees recognized Mike as one of four Outstanding Young Farmers in America in 1977. He valued his membership in Farm Bureau, various egg associations, Rotary Club, Federal Land Bank and BYU Cougar Club.
In the words of C S Lewis, “The present is the point at which time touches eternity”, we are at this point. We’re grateful for the many lessons we’ve learned. Foremost is the principle of enduring to the end with joy and grace. Even though he was very direct and open with his opinions in life, never once did we hear him complain. Although confined to his bed, he expressed gratitude with a smile to those who helped him. The family would like to express sincere thanks to the IHC Hospice Team, especially Adrien, Kim, Betsy, Brooke, Mike, Karen and Drs. Marlan Hansen and Von Welch for the compassionate care they provided. Thanks, also, to the family and many friends who have ministered to him. We love you all.
He is preceded in death by his parents and brothers Robert, Adair and Jess. He is survived by his immediate family.
“A father’s love warms the hearts of his children forever.” Anon.
