ORANGEVILLE-Donald Roger Curtis, age 80, died Oct. 19, 2009, in Price, Utah. Roger was born in Orangeville, Utah, Dec. 27, 1928, the fourth of nine children of William Lyman and Cora Sitterud Curtis. He married Delores Gnehm on Oct. 11, 1951, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

Roger is remembered for a lifetime of humble, dedicated service. He served as an LDS missionary in the Texas-Louisiana Mission, then served his country during the Korean Conflict. A faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he served as a bishop, nine years as a stake president, as a Manti Temple sealer, and as stake patriarch. He and Delores served in the LDS San Bernardino Mission. Roger also served as an Emery County Commissioner.

As an elementary school teacher, he taught hundreds of students and took pleasure in their successes.

Roger was a farmer and rancher who had a deep love for the land and nature, and for the town and county in which he lived. He was a living example of his testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

He will be missed by his family: his wife, Delores; children, Wes (Anne), Wendell (Nancy), Blaine (Kathy), and Marlene (Mervyn Jones); siblings, Jack, George, Jeanne, and Joyce Curtis, Carrol Taylor, and Merlin Mayberry; and 19 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents; a daughter, Colleen; a sister, Beatrice; a brother, Bill; and two grandchildren, Derick and Kyla.

Funeral services were held Saturday, Oct. 24, 2009, at 11 a.m. in the Orangeville LDS First Ward Chapel (45 West 100 South). There was a viewing Friday, Oct. 23, 2009, from 6- 8 p.m. at Fausett Mortuary in Castle Dale (720 North Center Street), and from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. prior to the services at the church. Interment was in the Orangeville City Cemetery. Online condolences
