Darwin LaVerl Walton 1925 ~ 2010 Our loving dad and grandpa, Darwin LaVerl Walton, passed away July 13, 2010 of natural causes. He was 84 years old. Dad was born on November 10, 1925 in Salt Lake City. He attended Granite High. In 1943 he married Jane Losee. They were later divorced. He served in the Merchant Marines during World War II. Dad married his soul mate Roma Jean Carnahan on September 23, 1966. They were married 39 years when she passed away on September 19, 2005. Dad enjoyed being outdoors in his younger years and often told stories of his days spent trapping and hunting. He would share stories of his days spent in the Merchant Marines and the tragedies of war. He worked for Haven's House Movers for over 20 years, then later for Hunt and Long House Movers and lastly JWT House Movers. After an injury on the job he was forced to retire. In his later years of life he enjoyed reading, especially Westerns, visits from his family and watching his roses, ornamental cabbages and snapdragons. He will be missed by so many whose lives he has touched deeply and profoundly. He was preceded in death by his wife Roma Jean Walton, his parents Glen and Edith Walton, two brothers, Darrell and Vaughn Walton. He is survived by his children, Donna Walton, Salt Lake City, Judi Whiteley, Salt Lake City, Darlene Pennington, Price, Diane (Robert) Dunlop, West Valley City, John (Laurie) Walton, Clinton, Jim (Sue) Curtis, Spanish Fork, Mark (Cindy) Moore, Taylorsville, one sister, Joyce Eastwood and one brother, LaMar Walton, 10 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Graveside services will be held Saturday, July 17, 2010 at 12:00 noon, with a one hour viewing prior to services held at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 East 10600 South, Sandy. As a family we should all be proud of the way we all pulled together in dad's final years to give him the best care possible. He was truly blessed as we all were to have him. Especially Diane and Robert who was there for dad 24 hours a day this last year, and did for dad what no other could. We honor you for that. Online condolences may be made to http://www.*****/****
