Ray William (Bill) Guymon, 84, passed away April 14, 2004. He was born Jan. 27, 1920, to Franklin Marion Guymon and Mable Behunin. His home has been in Huntington most of his life. He married his sweetheart, LaVon Rawson, March 10, 1943, in the Salt Lake Temple and after her passing in 1999 his life was never the same.
Because of his dear love for his children and especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, he still found joy in living. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and had a deep love for the Savior. He and his wife served in the Manti Temple for a time.
He was a true farmer and loved raising crops and cattle, but most of all he enjoyed raising, training, riding, trading and selling horses. To support his farming he worked as a carpenter and in the coal mines. After graduating from Carbon College where he studied carpentry, he became a very skilled craftsman and enjoyed working with beautiful pieces of wood and leather. His life was filled with hard work and up until moments before his death he was still planning and designing projects to work on.
Bill is survived by his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and two sisters. His children are LaRae and Darrel Leamaster, Huntington; Dana and Dorr Hanson, Spring Glen; JoAnn and Scott Mildenhall, Brigham City; and Ross and Nancy Guymon, Smithfield. His sisters are Marion Christensen, Springville and Dora Larsen, Huntington. Preceded in death by his wife, parents, brothers Morris and Lynn, sisters Luella Tippets and Beth Christensen and an infant brother and sister. Also preceded in death by a grandchild David Leamaster and great grandchild Jade Sharp. Because of his great love for all of his family we know that he is very happy now.
