HUNTINGTON-Royal J. "Curly" Lyman, age 96, died Aug. 2, 2008 at Castleview Hospital in Price. He was born Nov. 1, 1911 in Holman, Mo., the son of Alfonso Lyman and Ethel Vina Havens.

He married his sweetheart, Etta Mae Herrick, June 23, 1937 in Chico, Calif.

Curly was very proud of the 30-plus years he spent working in the timber of Northern California. When he retired from Collins Pine, (Chester, Calif.) he and Etta managed an RV Park on the Sacramento River for several years. He loved this job as it allowed him to be in the outdoors and fish for salmon and trout everyday after work.

In 1991 Curly and Etta moved to Utah in order to be closer to their family.

Curly continued to fish and hunt with his son-in-law and grandsons into his late 80's. Up until the last few years, Curly had the most beautiful and productive garden in the neighborhood; in fact, trying to out-do Curly's garden became quite a competition. Anyone who knew Curly, came to love him for his infamous storytelling, his sense of humor and his ready laugh.

Curly knew he had the most wonderful family in the world. At the end of every visit, Curly told his children, and grandchildren how much he loved them and how proud he was of them. For the last eight years, Curly was blessed to live with his daughter JoAnn and her husband Jerry. He never missed an opportunity to tell her, "Thanks, Hon." We will miss this sweet, kind gentleman.

He is survived by his two daughters, Deanna (Terry) Gullickson, Corning, Calif., JoAnn (Jerry) Carter, Spring Glen; eight grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, three brothers, and his wife, Etta who passed away on March 3, 1995.

Graveside service, Thursday, Aug. 7, 2008, 12 noon, at the Huntington City Cemetery. Arrangements entrusted to Mitchell Funeral Home of Price.
