William Lloyd Jefferies "Incredibill" of Holladay, Utah, left mortality on March 26, 2014 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Bill was born December 15, 1943 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Eva Anderson and Donald Jefferies. He graduated from Granite High School and served an LDS mission to the Southern States. He was an active member of the Holladay 3rd Ward where he served in many capacities. Bill had a gift for flourishing in life's harshest climates. In general, he was the bravest man we knew -- never quitting and always accomplishing in spite of any obstacle that was put in his path. His larger-than-life personality, effortless smile and a big heart won many friends. He had an amazing ability to look beyond what was and envision what could be. This special train aided him in becoming a very gifted real estate developer who revitalized many real estate projects throughout the valley. He always said that if a person chose something they loved for a career they would never work a day in their life -- and he never did. Bill had an extreme passion for dirt bike riding, particularly with his friends at Utah Trail Machine Association (UTMA). He loved his many excursions down the Baja Peninsula and through Mexico on his bike. Even though there were many, he called each one a "trip of a lifetime." Bill's greatest joy was his family. He loved hosting his monthly family get-together "Ham Sunday" where he would cook, joke and play with his children and grandchildren. Nearest to his heart was his sweet wife Becki. Together they shared many adventures during their 36 years of marriage.
His legacy will continue through his wife, siblings (Wes, Marianne, and Joycelyn,) six children (Renan and Amy, Rhett and Marci, Raechel and Todd, Resh and Lindsey, Rock and Zeny, and Ryder and Lindsey), 13 (soon to be 15) grandchildren and his trusty dog Callie. In death, he is happily reunited with his parents, his good friend Graydon Briggs, and many other family members.

I was born Oct. 10th, 1944 and I died Jan.10, 2014. I can't believe it! I thought I might be the exception, so much for that! I was born and raised in Salt Lake City. My parents were Norman Kempner and Irene Parker Kempner. I went to schools in the Granite School District and I am a proud graduate of Granite High Class of "62.
I went to Westminster College and dropped out the same year. The next year I went to the College of Southern Utah and dropped out the same year. I was not ready for college. I had a pushy mother who didn't see I might have learning problems. I entered my senior year comprehending at a 3rd grade level. I took the first remedial reading classes offered by Granite District, and I owe those teachers so much. I made vast improvements but I was still not ready for college. I did not go back for 14 years until I was 33 years old. I was able to be successful because I met the love of my life, Lyda Hibbard. We married in October 1977 and enjoyed 25 years of wedded bliss until MS took her from the world in 2003. I still miss her terribly each day.
I graduated from the University of Utah in 1985 and began my career as a school teacher in 1986. I continued to teach US Government and Comparative World Religion classes until I was forced to quit due to cancer in 2014. Most of my career has been at Valley High School in Jordan District. The most rewarding place I could ever teach. My students mean so much to me. I was an avid outdoorsman and especially enjoyed fishing and sport shooting. I was a proud "Art Nerd" and collected original artwork and enjoyed a large collection of Utah artwork.
I survived these last few months on the kindness of friends and strangers but mostly by help from my Valley family. I especially want to thank Val Brandt, Sharon Jensen, and my sister Dee Ann.
Survived by: sister Dee Ann(Aaron) Harari, two nephews, Adriel and Joel (Diana) Harari, all of Orange County, CA. I am also survived by my wife's family: Jim Hibbard, Susan Laman, Phyllis Bingham, Margaret (Ted) Yaeger, Robert(Jackie) Hibbard, nephews Matt(Wendy) Bingham, Phil (Morgan) Bingham, niece Heather (Ty) Benson and many other nieces and nephews.

I was shocked and saddened to learn of Elaine's passing. She was a good friend.
From Doug Curran on June 11th, 2011
Well it's been over 45 years since I had the privilege of sitting next to this beautiful songstress in BYU's a capella choir under Ralph Woodward's direction. We sat and sang in quartets uniquely, and Elaine sat to my left. She always amazed me with her clear, sweet soprano voice, always controlled, always melodious and easy to blend with. For some strange reason I had a dream about her last night, singing and laughing again at BYU. So I had to look her up here, since I had heard through a friend in Logan some months ago while looking for Roger, that she had passed away. What a saint she was from her obits I've read.. I knew Roger through mutual performing in BYU's Program Bureau in the mid 60s and was so happy he joined the LDS Church and that theywere married. He got a true queen. I know it's many years since her passing, but having that dream made me wonder about her again and had to add my little tribute. here once I found this site I hope Roger and his big family are well, as am I, a married father of only eight, living in Orem. With Fond Memories, Doug Curran

She was born October 23, 1944, the fourth child of Willard Clark Richards, Sr. and Bertha Nazer Richards. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Grant, her infant daughter, Michelle, and many adored pets. She was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She had a strong testimony of the power of forgiveness, prayer, and the Priesthood. She was brought back from death's door five times, always at the eleventh hour, because of these gifts. She had a unique life filled with experiences quite different than most. On July 29, 1969, she survived a car bombing, which left her crippled for life. Kaelynn married Grant Howard Tuckett May 23, 1978. She leaves behind a daughter, Kim Tuckett; siblings, Mary Lu McMullin, Sharon Nazer, Willard Clark Richards, Jr., and Bobbie Richards; her dearest friends, Marchion Mackay and Leslie Robison; and her dogs whom she affectionately called, "The Girls." She also leaves behind many other friends, too numerous to mention. You know who you are. She worked for the Operating Engineers Local Union Number 3 for 28 years as a secretary and then Office Manager. She often said her siblings were so gifted in many things, while her only talent was typing. She found great joy in her job, especially when she was able to help people. She enjoyed most working with the Union's retirees, resolving insurance issues. It gave her a great deal of satisfaction when she could help others. She was intelligent and considerate, with a wacky sense of humor, and an innate ability to make friends wherever she went, even in the most difficult of circumstances. She was an avid reader who enjoyed true crime novels, westerns, and the study of astrology. She loved embroidery, drawing, and collecting recipes. She and her sister, Mary Lu, compiled a recipe book of favorite family recipes in 1984. Kaelynn's family wishes to thank all those who helped them through these last years, and there were many. Her family is truly grateful for the peace others gave them. Most notably are the wonderful staff at Highland Care Center, especially Daniel, Selena, Kristin, and Haley. Also, Drs. Robert Payne, Robert Home, James Willcox, Dennis Gordon, and Scott Haupt, Hyrum Weller, R.N., President David Castleton, Bishop Brent Jones, Alan Combs, Shari Payne, Carl Tobler, Dave and Drexel Guzy, and Tony and Cheryl Ferrara, to name a few. Your skills, talents, and kindness will not be forgotten. She experienced many surgeries, extended hospital stays, and was bedridden for the last three years. She endured these trials with courage, strength, and humility. She never thought of herself as anything other than average, although she was extraordinary. She always had a positive attitude, even during her darkest hours. If anyone had a purpose for her life, it was she. It was evidenced by the many things she endured to the end. She was the epitome of a valiant soul. She said she would always be close by her loved ones when she passed on. She would simply wait for them behind the moon. At the request of the deceased, no funeral services will be held. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Salt Lake County Animal Services or the Utah Humane Society in Kaelynn's name. She loved animals, and was happiest when she could help abused and neglected animals find loving homes.
