Let the memory of Wilford be with us forever

He attended Bear River High School, class of ‘49, where he played sports and was class president. He then went to Utah State where he studied Engineering. It was there that he met his sweetheart, and eternal companion, Elizabeth Fletcher; he was the president of the LDS Institute fraternity, and she was a new freshman just signing up for classes. They were soon married in the Logan Temple, a romance that lasted nearly sixty years and produced eight children.
He worked as a Mechanical Engineer, first for Boeing, and spent the bulk of his career with Unisys Corporation where he went on to earn his Masters Degree in Business. When he retired he and his wife moved back to his family property in Deweyville, Utah.
A member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Woody served in many callings in the church, including serving as a temple worker for many years and also serving a mission with his wife to Nauvoo, Illinois during the time that the Nauvoo temple was being rebuilt.
Woody was first and foremost a family man. His family will remember him as a hard working and devoted husband and father, who was gentle and kind. He spent countless hours serving others and had a good sense of humor that made others smile. He loved belt buckles, rice crispy bars and caramel corn.

"Thinking of my dear husband today on his 85th birthday as I attended the missionary open house for our grandson, Orion T. Snow in Layton.  I also said goodbye to Benjamin Cardon, another grandson, who leaves on a mission to the Alpine mission on Wednesday.  We have two other missionaries serving,  Diane Cardon in Taiwan, and Kaitlin Scott in Paraguay.  Today is an important day in Jewish tradition, it is the last day of the Shemitah year.  I miss my husband every day, but often feel his presence."
