LAWRENCE-John Lillard Oliver, age 81, passed away peacefully at his home Dec. 26, 2008. John was born Oct. 13, 1927 in Elmo, Utah to Grant and Cora Oliver.

He married the love of his life Carol McArthur on Aug. 14, 1954 in Lawrence, Utah where they made their home. Their marriage was later solemnized on Aug. 14, 2008 at the Manti LDS Temple.

John was an old time cowboy grasping strong to old traditions. He worked hard on the farm punching cows and breaking horses. He worked for the county road department and later retired from UMWA Deer Creek coal mine. His spirits radiated like a wild horse that could never be corralled. Carol tamed him and now they are together again.

John is survived by his daughter, Tracy Kae and husband Wayde S. Nielsen of Lawrence; grandchildren: Jeremy, Joshua (Dorinda), Jennifer (Jeremy Averett), and Jake; great-grandchildren: Natasha, Jaylyn, Austin, Ainsley, Addison, J.W., and Gavin; brothers: Alfred Oliver, Ted Oliver, and Kenneth Oliver; and daughter-in-law, Dixie.

Preceded in death by his loving wife, Carol; parents, Grant and Cora Oliver; son, Jed; grandson, Dave J.; granddaughter, Jonnita Kae; brothers: Fredrick Kay, and Vernell Charles; and sister, Cora LaRie.

Funeral Services will be held Tuesday, Dec. 30, 2008 at 12 noon at the Huntington LDS Fifth Ward Chapel (115 South 400 East). A viewing was Monday, Dec. 29, 2008 from 6-8 p.m. at Fausett Mortuary (720 North Center, Castle Dale, Utah) and on Monday from 10-11:40 a.m. at the church. Interment will be in the Lawrence Cemetery. Services are in the care of Fausett Mortuary.
