Gary Lloyd Noyes, the eternal companion to Elizabeth Roxanne Randall Noyes, the loving and devoted father to Bonnie, Kelsie, Baylie, Wade, and Drew, the kind and loving grandfather to Randy, Nicholas, Brayden, Tyson, and Jesse, passed away on Sunday, Sept. 12, 2010, at the age of 57, after a courageous battle with esophageal cancer and emphysema. Gary will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Gary was born June 30, 1953, to Lloyd David and Hope Grace Mortensen Noyes in Price, Utah, and spent most of his life in Carbon County. He moved to Cleveland, Emery County, Utah, after his marriage to his eternal sweetheart, Roxanne, on Feb. 23, 2008, which was later solemnized in the Manti LDS Temple on Sept. 5, 2009.
Gary was preceded in death by his two precious children, Kimberlee Ann and Jason Gary Noyes, his grandparents, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He is survived by his wife, Roxanne Noyes of Cleveland; parents, Lloyd (Hope) Noyes of Price; sister, Peggy Young of Wellington; brother, David (Janet) Noyes of Price; sister, Brenda (Mark) Dube of Tennessee; daughter, Bonnie (Michael) Tucker of San Diego; step-children: Kelsie (Richard) Simmons of Wellington, Baylie (Robert) Thomas of Price, Wade Bohn of Cleveland, and Drew Bohn of Wellington; and his five grandsons: Randy and Nicholas Badgett of California, Brayden and Tyson Thomas of Price, and Jesse Simmons of Wellington.
Gary was very happy and proud that after many years of being, quote, "in-active" in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he returned and enjoyed full church participation. He enjoyed doing temple work for deceased family members which was one of his favorite pastimes while he was still healthy enough to do it.
