PRICE-Larry Dale Newby took his final flight on April 25, 2012. He was born April 16, 1957 in Price, Utah to William Payton and Leslie Charlene Cook Newby.

Larry was a perpetual prankster whose prized possession was his family.

Larry always said he lived by the three "F's", we are pretty sure that meant "flying, family and fishing". Larry loved the outdoors and wide open country, he had no use for the city. He spent his free time in the outdoors, building his family cabin, flying, sky diving, scuba diving, snowmobiling, ATV'ing or long motorcycle adventures with his wife Sue.

Larry had a great knowledge and love for the history, geology, and geography of Southeastern Utah's backcountry. He freely shared that knowledge and love of the area with all who had the opportunity to fly with him. Those who flew with Larry for an hour, remembered him for a lifetime. He began flying airplanes at the age of 18 and has flown for Redtail Aviation since 2000, where he served as Chief Pilot, Instructor and Check Airman. His "real job" was working for PacificCorp for the last 36 years as an electrician.

Larry was a great husband, father, brother, friend and made everyone feel they were his priority. He married Sue Eskelsen on March 28, 1983. They have two children that are his pride and joy. He was the best friend to his family and always there for them, in sun and storm.

Larry is survived by his wife, Sue Newby; son, Nicholas Newby (Chelsey Warburton); daughter, Andraya "Roonie" Montgomery (Scotty); two brothers, Bill and Johnny Newby; sister, Dona Nay (Allen); mother-in-law, Jan Barber; and many other family members and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, William Payton Newby; mother, Leslie Cook Henderson; and father-in-law, Thayne Eskelsen

Friends are encouraged to join the family at the Airport Tuesday beginning at 1:30 p.m. Interment, Cliffview Cemetery, Price.

"Should my end come, while I am in flight, whether brightest day or darkest night, spare me your pity and shrug off your pain, secure in the knowledge that I'd do it again. For each of us is created to die, and within me I know, I was born to fly." -Author unknown.
