David Richsteig

Full military honors were paid David John Richsteig, 23 of Cedar City at graveside services at the Cedar city Cemetery.  Richsteig is the only member of the military forces from Cedar City who lost his life in the Viet Nam war.  A Major with the U.S. Marine Corps, Richsteig was reported missing in Viet Nam Dec 9, 1965.  He was officially declared dead by the Department of Defense in February, 1974.  His body was recently found near Danang South Viet Nam and has been returned to Cedar City for burial. A native of Cedar City, Major Richsteig attended Cedar City schools and graduated from Cedar High School  He went on to graduate from College of Southern Utah, now Southern Utah University.  He further studied at the University of Utah where he received a degree in accounting.  Richsteig began his military career with the Marine Corps in 1962.  He later was commissioned June 9, 1964 at Fort Douglas, Utah through the Marine Corps Platoon Leaders Class.  Following his commission he was assigned to Quantico, VA for six months officer’s training before assignment to Viet Nam.

He was born May 9, 1942 in American Fork to Max and Laura Stewart Richsteig.  He married Kristen Barnes July 3, 1964 in Salt Lake City.  During his service in Viet Nam a son, Erick, was born to him, a son that he never saw.

While in the service of his country he was the recipient of the Vietnamese Cross for Gallantry, the Vietnamese Campaign Medal and the Purple Heart.  His ultimate sacrifice for his country stands out as a credit to him and his fellow countrymen.  It is with honor that he served, with honor that he died.  It is only through such sacrifices that the country remains strong and free.  Although short in years, his contribution becomes paramount.  Hopefully his life will be an example to those who follow.

He will be remembered by many in Cedar City through his school years, while working as a clerk at Safeway and as an active member of the Cedar Third Ward.

Joyce Hall

Long ago, and very close to here, on June 23, 1942, a small pink bundle was delivered to the Horace and Fern Hall family…they named her Joyce. Her father, during the prevailing war time, was working for one dollar and 24 cents per day, but to Joyce, there was always plenty to eat, plenty to do, and more than enough to wonder and ask questions about. She had some pretty patient parents, so it was a peaceful and wonderful time to live. She had an older brother, two sisters younger, and a caboose brother who didn’t come until she was 16 years old, but they were and still are close friends.Joyce loved school and was involved in many extra-curricular activities during those years. She attended SUU (then CSU) after graduating from high school, and enjoyed being a cheer leader and library worker while there, as well as secretary for the English department.Joyce and Lee were married in September after he returned from a mission to the Northern States in June of 1961. They both attended CSU for awhile, then Joyce took a full-time job to help support them while Lee finished his schooling. Soon, along came some babies…Elaine, Deb, Susan and Stacy all came within the first seven+years of their marriage. Then a little lull…and then a boy, Steven Lee. Another little lull…and Mark Bryan was the late caboose in this family. These children and their children have been the keepers of the light in her eyes. There are 20 grandchildren, with the 21st coming in July, and 2 great grandchildren and another to be born in October.Joyce had some great service opportunities during her life. She served for several years on the Alumni Committee of SUU, and one year as its President. Likewise with the Valley View Healthcare Foundation, also serving on the Board as President. She has been a Relief Society President, in the Stake Primary and Young Women Presidencies, and founded the Helping Hands organization that assisted Valley View Hospital in volunteer patient services.

Lori

Lory Misel

The progression of the cancer was very aggressive, and it took him quickly.  Lory, beloved brother, father, grandfather and counselor, passed away peacefully in the presence of his family the afternoon of July 3, 2016 at his son’s house on Vashon Island, Washington. Lory was born on October 2, 1942 in Cedar City, Utah to Lawrence and Verda Misel. Lory attended high school and college in Cedar City before obtaining his BA in 1964 and Masters in Social Work in 1966 from the University of Utah.

Lory worked as a correctional social worker at the O.H. Close School for Boys at the California Youth Authority in Stockton, CA, from 1966-68 before being recruited to be the Director of Out-Patient services at the Seattle Mental Health Institute in Seattle, WA in 1968.  In 1970, he started a private practice in Seattle and counseled people at offices located in Seattle, Enumclaw and Buckley over the next 46 years – until a month before his death.

Lory created hundreds of programs to enrich others; for schools, churches, professional organizations, corporations, foundations, or any group who had a need. For most of his adult life Lory lived on and worked a small farm in Enumclaw where he raised his family. Lory loved tending to cattle, pigs, chickens, sheep, and his gardens – with his dahlias holding a special place in his heart. 

Lory’s special gift was leading people in spiritual discovery.  He was a student of writings from A Course in Miracles, Richard Rohr, Rumi, the Bible, Thich Nhat Hanh and of the movies A Field of Dreams and Groundhog Day.  He loved the banjo – something you may not realize; but Lory played the banjo a bit, back when he was all a lot younger.

He is survived by son Rob and Brenda Misel of Vashon, WA; son Jeff and Lili Misel of Fairbanks, AK and five grandchildren; Katherine (21), Will (17), John (15), Darcy (11), and Oscar (8), each of whom he adored greatly.   

A celebration of Lory’s life will take place at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 13, at The Kelley Farm, 20021 Sumner Buckley Highway, Bonney Lake, WA 98391.

MacNeil Boyter

I am delighted to have this opportunity to express my appreciation to my friends and associates of my days in Cedar City. Nice job Lennis, Bonnie and your committee. I hope your efforts are as meaningful to others as they are to me. I regard my days in Cedar City and specifically those of our high school years as wonderful opportunities to experience a lot of different jobs, responsibilities and develop great friendships which have proven to stand the test of time. Like others I joined the Utah National Guard and received training in Ft Ord California and Ft Sill Oklahoma shortly after we graduated. I returned to Cedar to continue working at the Fair Deal Motor (sounds strange today) and going to school at CSU. When I graduated I continued to work until I was called to serve in the Eastern Atlantic States Mission in the fall of 1962. It was a terrific opportunity and certainly made a lot of difference in my life then and today. After returning to Cedar in the fall of 1964 I continued to take a few classes at CSU and then moved to Salt Lake City to work and prepare to attend BYU and continue my education. It was during this period that I met my sweetheart Alta Jane Thomas from Wales, Utah, who is now my wife. We were married in the Salt Lake Temple in the summer of 1966. I graduated from the Y after the fall semester and accepted employment with the CIA. This proved to be short term as I decided that being a “spook” did not really meet my life style and I resigned my commission and began my career as a “spook” of other sorts as a car salesman at the Pontiac, Cadillac dealership in Provo. It seemed like the next logical step from the CIA at the time. We have continued to follow that path now for 44 years. It has been a great ride as it has allowed me to raise my family in a wonderful valley and experience a lot of opportunities that are offered here in “happy valley”.Alta and I have six children, five daughters and one son. They are living and growing in six different places and four different states. They have given us nineteen grandchildren to cherish and who certainly make our life full. Through the years we have spent a lot of time in community and church service which has provided the opportunity to understand the joys of being a part of activities and events that have significant consequences both for those who we associate and ourselves. Despite a few health bumps in the road of life we have and are having a wonderful time. We are sincerely grateful for those who have been near and dear through the years. One item that is near to my heart is the creation of a foundation called the “Children with Cancer Christmas Foundation”, which began in 1998 from a few families being serviced by a group of wonderful people with good hearts to an organization when now involves several hundred volunteers and families and children that number over seven hundred and fifty. This is a difficult number when you consider the cause, but has proven to touch lives in love and comfort I would have not perceived a few years ago. So all in all we are more than grateful to have known and continue to know you my fellow members of the class of 1960 and I am sure we would all receive an “A” from Mrs. Palmer as she often told me that we were the very best class she had known to pass through the halls and lives of the old Cedar High. Thanks to you all. I look forward to being with you soon.

Occasionally in our lives, we come across someone who for one reason or another makes us feel special, someone who makes us feel import. MacNeil Boyter was blessed with a unique ability to touch others lives for good. From his family, neighbors and friends to the doctors and nurses who cared for him the final days of his life, he never ceased to bring smiles to our faces and make each of us feel as if we were the most important person. Mac passed away on October 12, 2013 after a courageous battle with pneumonia. He will be greatly missed not only by his family but also by the community to which he gave so much. Mac was born on November 10, 1941 in Cedar City Utah to Mae Macfarlane and Neil Boyter, He served in the Utah National Guard until 1959 when he was called to serve a LDS mission in the Eastern Atlantic States.
Mac graduated from BYU earning his degree in Psychology and Business. In 1966 Mac met and courted Alta Jane Thomas. In that same year they were sealed together in the Salt Lake City, LDS Temple. Together they had six children five girls and one boy who were always the primary focus of their lives. Mac loved life in all its facets and took pleasure in serving others, His passion was people. He not only loved them but they loved him. Mac was blessed to have a special sense of humor. He served in various civic organizations, was Chairman of the American Cancer Society, First Chairman of the Provo Freedom Festival two consecutive years. He was the founder and Chairman of Mac’s Gift formerly known as The Children with Cancer Christmas Foundation.

Michael J Houchen

Michael passed away about 4/15/15. In 2010 he wrote: Hi everyone, Hard to summarize fifty years in a few sentences, but here are some highlights of my life up to now. I was in the National Guard along with a bunch of guys, Steve, David, Leon, etc.  We were sent to Puerto Rico when we were seniors and it was quite an adventure.  I actually shook hands with the governor of Utah as we were boarding the plane.I too left for Fort Ord before our graduation exercises which I regret. I married Karen Schoenberger of Fillmore in 1962 and we settled in So Cal.I attended Cal State L.A. where I received a degree in mathematics.  At the same time, starting in 1967, I taught myself computer programming (the machines then had 16K of memory!).  This led to a very satisfying career.  I was a systems analyst/programmer for an insurance company in Pasadena.  Later I was a mainframe Sr. Systems Programmer for a financial services company in Irvine, CA responsible for a 3000+ terminal network. Later, after the “demise” of the mainframe, I migrated to the PC world (what a culture shock!) and entered into independent contract software development, working for 10-20 companies in So Cal.  My latest gig was developing a system for Sprint/Nextel allowing for maintenance of frequencies and antennas (amazingly complicated).I recently retired from the software game although I continue to develop some personal applications (latest is a system to manage stock market portfolios). Instead of the usual retirement activities such as playing golf, traveling, etc., I decided to return to a totally different field, home construction.  I had helped my dad build a number of homes in Cedar City.  I’m refurbishing my own home built in 1986 as well as another dwelling.  I’m handling every aspect including plumbing, electrical as well as the carpentry.  I’m using tools my dad used in the 50’s (they don’t make ‘em like that anymore!).  It is turning out to be a very positive endeavor, mentally and physically challenging (use it or lose it). I’m seriously considering making it an ongoing part-time career. I continue to work on my piano playing.  Although schooled in classical, my passion now is jazz, focusing on old standards.  I’m working on my own arrangements, but love to play those by Oscar Peterson, Marion McPartland, Peter Nero, Marcus Roberts, etc. I enjoy spending time with my son Travis and grandson Ryan.  My mom (she still lives alone at age 95!) and my sister Jeri live just up the road.  Of course, my significant other, Susan is a big part of my life (we’re taking a trip to Alaska in August).  Oh yeah, and I do love playing golf!  (Public records indicate he divorced Karen in 1973 and never remarried)

Sheila Gardner

Beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother Sheila Gardner Rose left this earth Wednesday, April 6, 2016 after a lengthy battle with dementia. To all who had the joy of having Sheila in their lives, her passing is a great loss.

Sheila was born August 24, 1942 to Kumen and Naida Gardner in Cedar City, Utah. From the very beginning Sheila was full of life and not a believer in all things traditional. She was never one to believe that her role was to be subservient simply because she was a woman. As a result, she was always working to improve herself both intellectually and physically. Her joy of learning led her to study anthropology, eventually earning a Master’s Degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1977. Sheila was also devoted to physical health as she ran five to ten miles a day, and biked just as many until just a few years ago.

Sheila married Gerald C. Wood, and they were later sealed in the St. George Temple. She and Jerry had four children together. They later divorced. Sheila worked hard to raise and provide as a legal secretary. In 1984 she was chosen to be the Trial Court Executive in the fifth district. She served in that role until the late eighties when she went to work for the Juvenile Court as a probation officer. Her excellence in that role is demonstrated by the numerous testimonials, including letters to the editor, from former probationers testifying to the positive impact she made in their lives.

Sheila had a testimony of Jesus Christ and was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints where she served in several positions throughout her lifetime.

She is survived by her children: Lee (Linda) Wood of Cedar City, UT; Heidi (Les) White of Cedar City, UT; Stephanie (Craig) Davidson of Heber City, UT; and Travis Wood of Salt Lake City, UT; her brothers: Dayne (Elizabeth) Gardner of Cedar City, UT; Eric (Marion) Gardner of Holiday, UT; Paul (Barbara) Gardner of Plantersville, Texas; and Neil (Anne Marie) Gardner of Lahaina, Hawaii; 14 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.

Sheila is preceded in death by her parents Kumen and Naida Gardner.
