Dr. Ronald LaMar Astle,DDS Loving Husband and Father Our wonderful, thoughtful, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend returned to his Heavenly Father on February 24, 2011. On June 28, 1931, in Salt Lake City, Ron was born to Johanna Stam and Lehi Sam Astle. He lived in the East Millcreek area and graduated from Granite High School. He attended the University of Utah and later the College of Physicians and Surgeons in San Francisco. He studied Dentistry and had a successful Dental practice in Sacramento, CA, for 30 years after which they retired to Sandy, UT. He married the love of his life, Ann Marie Blacker, on August 20, 1953, in the Salt Lake Temple. He served in the Army as a high speed radio operator and played clarinet in the Army Band. He loved his LDS mission to the Central Atlantic States. Later in life, he served 3 LDS missions with his beautiful wife, Ann, to Ireland, as CES coordinators, and another to Nauvoo, IL, and a part time mission in the Family Search Library in SLC. His service in the church was exemplary. He served in many capacities including Bishop (twice), and as a stake high councilor. He loved serving many years in the Jordan River and Draper Temples. At the young age of 68, he and Ann served as Webelos leaders, and were Primary and Sunday School teachers in their 70's. Working together with the youth made him extremely happy. Ron has been musical his whole life, playing the clarinet, singing in many choirs - with some soloing, and was a six year member of the Saltaires Barbershop Chorus which placed 6th in an International competition. He has delighted many congregations with his beautiful Tenor voice. As a fisherman, he loved catching the fish and then telling those "fishing stories". He enjoyed taking Ann fishing, even though he always had to bait her hook and clean the fish. He enjoyed gardening and sharing his bounty. He was a self-taught talented artist. His sense of humor and quiet but strong leadership lifted and strengthened us and endeared all who knew him. Being with his family gave him great joy. Attending the activities of his children and grandchildren was a delight to him. He was their biggest fan and strongest supporter. He was preceded in death by his parents, and brothers Neil and Dennis. He is survived by his eternal love, Ann, his children: Ken (Marlene), Judy Jackson (Allen), Clint (Bobbi), Marie Monson (Chris), Alan (Laura), and David (Cassie), his 27 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren, his brother, Lynn (Marian) and sisters-in-law Shelly and Lloyd Dreksel. The family thanks the VA Hospital staff and Larkin Mortuary for their attentive care.
