CLASS OF 1968
September 7, 2018
As of the date of this posting (04/29/21), we haven't heard of any Covid-19 related deaths.
As of this date (04/29/21) we are remembering some significant times in our history.
We have a lot to remember. We have a lot for which to be thankful.
As of this posting (04/29/21), it has been 2 years and 7 months and 22 days days
since our 50th Reunion.
Go back and look at the videos,
particularly the 20th Reunion video produced by Stephanie Cairo's sister,
The turmoil we experienced in
was what we perceived as
some 52+ years ago.
I guess we were built to do hard things.
We'd appreciate hearing from you.
We'd appreciate knowing
your feelings and your wisdom
in living through another challenging time.
You were built for a time such as this.
You can share on the "Message Board" or in the "Guest Book" or post "Photos" or "Videos" here on this website.
Please, be safe!
If you know of other losses, please let us know.
Good Vibrations and God's Blessings at a time of great challenge, change and growth.
Thomas W. Nelson
Thomas Wayne Nelson, our father, son, brother, grandfather, and friend, passed away on February 19, 2017. He succumbed to complications due to pneumonia while recovering from recent strokes and fighting heart disease. He follows his sweetheart, Sandie, who passed just one week earlier. He was surrounded by family in his final moments.
1949 ~ 2017
Tom was born and raised in Salt Lake City and attended Skyline High School. He loved sports and played football and ice hockey, where he excelled at both. He loved taking his family on vacation and was happiest with them together in the outdoors. He was president and co-founder of Nelson Brothers Electric, and served for many years on the board and leadership of the National Electrical Contractors Association, Intermountain Chapter. He was an example of strength, hard work, and compassion to all who knew him.
Tom is survived by his mother Eve, sons Joshua (Stacie), Nathan (Amy), and Jacob (Valerie), and brothers Raymond (Kathy) and Kelly. Tom and Sandie have four grandchildren: Lexie, Jaden, Jorja, and Tanner. He was preceded in death by his wife, Sandie, and his father, Raymond "Bud."
Henry James Middleton
Surrounded by loved ones, Henry James Middleton, Jr. of South Jordan, Utah our loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather peacefully passed-away on Sept. 5, 2020. Henry was born Oct. 13, 1929 in Ogden Utah to Henry James Middleton and Mabel Anderson Middleton, the oldest of 6 children. Dad grew up in Ogden where his family had resided for several generations.
1929 - 2020
Dad married his eternal companion, LouJean Bowman, on August 11, 1948 in the Logan Utah Temple. He greatly cherished Mom and their family. He sorely missed her when she passed in 2015. They have 4 children, Connie (Jeff) Snarr, Craig (Peggy) Middleton, Brent (Tracy) Middleton, and Michelle (Jeff) Thomson. They have 18 Grandchildren and 30 Great-Grandchildren. Dad was preceded in death by his loving wife LouJean, his brother Doug, his grandchildren Kristen Thomson and Brandon Snarr.
Dad pursued Education as his career, with a Bachelor's degree from Weber State College and a Master's degree from Utah State University. Most of his career was spent at Skyline High School where he was both a teacher and a Vice-Principal. He was an outstanding educator and throughout his career in education he touched thousands of lives.
As his spirituality increased throughout his life, his examples of being a disciple of Jesus Christ emanated from him. Dad loved to serve, with his latest calling to serve as a Sealer in the Jordan River Temple.
He was an excellent father who always watched over and looked for ways to help his children, his posterity, and his neighbors. We always knew of his love and support for each of his children and his posterity. He was a truly kind and gracious man.
Private family services will be held Saturday, September 12, 2020, 11:00 a.m. Services will be streamed Saturday at 11 a.m. on the link provided at the bottom of Henry's obituary at www.cannonmortuary.com. Interment South Jordan Cemetery.

Janis Averett Patterson
April 5, 1950 - April 26, 2020
Janis Averett Patterson, 70, of Salt Lake City, UT passed away on April 26, 2020 after a long, courageous battle with medical complications.
Janis was born and spent most of her life in Salt Lake City. She was born to Lorraine and Ray Averett on April 5, 1950. She graduated from Skyline High School in 1968.
Janis had one daughter, Jill-Marie, and one grandson, Patrick, who called her "Grandma J." She was a generous, caring, loving, vibrant and fun mom, grandma, daughter, sister and friend.
Janis owned her own stock transfer company and worked hard to take care of her clients. She had a free-spirit, and thoroughly enjoyed her life. She was the life of the party and her sense of humor and big personality brought life to any room she walked into.
Janis' other passions were her family, her friends, and she loved all animals. She had a huge heart, especially for the underdog.
She is survived by her daughter and grandson and three sisters: Sherry Gould; Judy Chapman and her husband Scott; Debbie Kimball and her husband Mark. All of her sisters brought her such great joy and helped her immensely with her challenges related to her illness. Janis is also survived by many nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews as well as many extended family and friends.
We miss you already, Mom, and pray that you are surrounded by loved ones who went before you, and that you are at peace.
A viewing will be held on Saturday, May 2nd from 12:00 to 12:45 PM followed by a graveside service at 1:00 PM all at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 E. Dimple Dell Rd. (10600 S.), Sandy. Online condolences may be offered at www.thememories.com

Who was that red rose?
and who are those thorns surrounding her?
Could you ever imagine being 70 years old?
Yet, some of you are already 71 years old or will be shortly.
Social Security and Medicare are now a reality.
