Sidney John Hansen, 85: of Amalga UT passed away on Saturday, November 27, 2021 at his home in Amalga. Sid was born September 23, 1936, in Amalga, Utah, the fourth son of Vagn and Ruth Schiess Hansen. He and his brothers--Richard, Keith, Sheridan, and Dean--grew up on the family farm. The family first lived in a little two-room house directly west of Grandpa H.P. and Grandma Marie Hansen. During the summer, the older boys slept in a log cabin. In 1948 the yellow brick home was built just east of the canal. The brothers and their friends made their own fun, swimming in the canal, skinny dipping in the river bottoms, and playing ball. Sid attended Summit School, Smithfield Jr. High and graduated from North Cache High School in 1954. He played baseball and football in high school and made all-region status in football both as a junior and a senior. He also played for the Amalga Ward Priests' team (which had only seven players). This team played for district championship in the Nelson Fieldhouse in Logan; and although they lost the final game, it was a proud accomplishment for the little town of Amalga to have almost reached the top. While farming full-time with his father and brother, Richard, Sid joined the National Guard on March 21, 1955, and served for six years as a cook. He continued throughout his life his love of dairy farming. He enjoyed working the land, and watching the crops grow and be harvested. On April 14, 1961, in the Logan L.D.S. Temple, Sid married Carol Woodruff of Smithfield. Sid and Carol first lived in a little house set on the foundation of the old Amalga schoolhouse. Then in 1967 they built the brick house, still the family home, just to the north. Sid and Carol are the parents of five children: DeAnn Anderson (Kyle), Dixie Sase (Dave), Marcene Bennett (Dave), Douglas John Hansen (Camille), and Shelley Keller (Nathan). Carol passed away of cancer on September 24, 1986. She supported Sid and their kids in all their endeavors and opened her home to family and friends. When Mom passed away this was an extremely difficult time but Dad stepped forward and made his family his number one priority. Sid served for 15 years as financial clerk of the Amalga Ward, working with three Bishoprics. He also coached the Priests' basketball team for 20 years. He served on the Amalga Town Board for 16 years. During those years, the town officials upgraded the water works, built the town hall, created Sugar Park, and began the 24th of July celebrations. Sid was also president of the Amalga Wildlife District for four years. He was a member of the Smithfield Lions Club and enjoyed attending many conventions. A life-long sports enthusiast, he enjoys collecting sports memorabilia, as well as stamps and coins. Sid married Maridene Mather Rock on February 18, 1989. Sid and Maridene enjoyed traveling to many places. He enjoyed spending countless hours at his grandkid's activities. He was their greatest supporter. His family was his pride and joy. They brought him his happiest and most cherished moments. Sid is survived by his wife Maridene and her four sons. His 5 children and their spouses, 17 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren. His brothers: Keith, Sheridan (Annette), and Dean (Relle). He is proceeded in death by his eternal companion, Carol.

"I'm 'Beef' Quillen and you're crazy about me." Those were Gary "Beef" Quillen's first words to his future wife, Jennifer Porter. Gary was born to June and Clifford Quillen in Ashland, Kentucky on 17 March, 1947. He grew up leaving a strong impression on everyone he met. Beef was known to all because of his wit, his enthusiasm for people, and his wild tendencies at a young age. He loved his family, his country, and his community, and devoted his life to each. Gary and Jennifer were married the weekend of her high school graduation in Ashland on 23 May, 1968. He enlisted in the Air Force and their first assignment was in Italy. While in Italy, missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints knocked on their door. They were invited in and Gary kindly offered them a beer. After months of prayer, thorough research, and kicking a smoking/drinking habit, Gary and Jennifer were baptized. They were sealed in the Logan temple in 1974. Gary's career took them across the country and across oceans. In Ashland they owned a fence company as well as the Putt-Putt mini-golf. They had 8 children, Candace, Mark, Seth, Jared, Alicia, Rachel, Clifford and Joseph. They made their home a hub for their children's friends, welcoming people from all walks of life. Visitors were always enthralled with Beef's stories. Gary served a total of 26 years in the military. He retired as a Master Sergeant from the Air Force in 1997 and moved with 6 of their children to Logan, Utah. Gary then provided for his family as a truck driver until his retirement in 2021. He could drive to any major city in the US without peeking at a map. He drove 3 million miles and drove through the COVID pandemic, despite the risks, because he felt it was his duty to provide for the American people. Beef tried out hundreds of restaurants through the USA, taking particular interest in BBQ joints, wishing one day to open his own. He knows the best BBQ spots in dozens of states, and was regularly given tours by restaurant owners. Gary was always a sports fan. He attended all the Paul Blazer High School games, and was even welcome to ride on the team bus. He played any sport he could, and ran the Ragnar Relay at the age of 69. He passed his love of the Kentucky Wildcats to his children, often gathering as a family on gamedays. Beef said the 60s was the greatest decade for music. He especially loved The Four Tops, The Rolling Stones, Creedence Clearwater Revival, as well as George Strait and Johnny Cash. He taught his kids to work. "Make yourself the most valuable person in your position." He always said "Being on time is the easiest part of your job! It takes no specials skills or knowledge." Beef was an ambitious gardener, growing far more than needed so that they could share with friends and family. As a skilled woodworker Gary built what he called "The Taj Mahal of chicken coops." He adopted a wild donkey, Luella, and treated her with so much love. He was allergic to cats, but had them anyway because they brought him such joy. Gary loved cozying up with Jennifer with some popcorn or ice cream to watch one western after another. He especially loved the Lonesome Dove Series. They held Sunday dinner every week for decades. He loved listening to his family's struggles, successes, and hilarious mishaps. He's the finest man any of us ever knew. He devoted his life to providing for his family. Gary was a devout student of The Gospel and each of his four sons served missions. In 2021 he finally bought a Dodge pick-up truck. He got it repainted and he looked great driving it. Gary had multiple joint replacements, cancer, COVID, and other ailments that he would always recover from well ahead of doctor expectations. He was recently hospitalized due to complications from a prior surgery. He was released from the hospital on Thanksgiving Day because he wanted to be with his family, and even wanted to drive himself home. He died in his sleep on November 28th. He is survived by his lovely wife, his grown children, and 17 grandchildren. He's "Beef" Quillen, and we're crazy about him. The funeral service will be on Saturday December 4th, 2021 at 12:00PM at the LDS Church at 645 Trail Circle, Logan, UT. There will be a viewing at White Pine Funeral Services on Friday December 3rd from 6-8 pm, and at the LDS church from 10:30-11:30AM on December 4th, immediately preceding the funeral service.

Martin C. Reeder passed away peacefully on November 24, 2021, on his 93rd birthday. Born November 24, 1928, in Smithfield, Utah, he was the seventh child and fourth son of Golden and Fontella Reeder. Corky was raised on a small family farm where he learned the value of hard work at a young age. He grew up with seven siblings which guaranteed a very happy childhood. Our Dad was educated in Cache County schools and attended classes at Utah State University. He had many diverse interests which he used in many different ways throughout his life . Martin was a proud Korean war veteran, and he and his three brothers left to serve on the same day. Later in life, he took a trip back to Korea with other veterans and enjoyed seeing the country and how it had progressed. In 1953, he married LaFaye Mickelson in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He told our mother he was going to marry her before he ever took her on a first date and they were later sealed in the Logan L.D.S. Temple. Martin and LaFaye raised three children, Debbie, Jolyn, and Scott who blessed them with seven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren, with another arriving soon. He adored these grandchildren and participated in their lives as much as his health allowed. Early in their marriage, Corky and Faye moved around quite a bit while Corky worked road construction. He then moved into sales where he especially enjoyed selling large farm equipment. He called himself a jack of all trades; Faye called him a salesman. He traveled all over the western United States and saw so much of this country. Our Dad always did love to drive. Our family vacations were road trips, with lovely picnics and outdoor meals at parks in interesting places. But, we were kids and just wanted to get to a hotel with a pool. Dad was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints where he served in many different callings. His first church calling was as a ward dance director, and it was such a treat to watch Dad and Mom dance. He and Mom later served a mission in Logan at the Bishop's Storehouse. He had a great love for temple work and all the people he worked with and made some dear friendships along the way. LaFaye, his wife of 65 years, preceded him in death, as did his parents and all seven of his brothers and sisters. Funeral services are under the direction of Allen-Hall Mortuary, located at 34 East Center in Logan on Saturday, December 4th. A viewing will be held from 11-12:30 followed by the funeral service at 12:30. We will have time during the funeral service for anyone who would like to share a memory or make a few remarks in honor of Corky to do so. Dad will be laid to rest in the Smithfield Cemetery. Dad's children and their families will gather on Saturday evening for an intimate family dinner to honor him. Condolences may be expressed online at www.allenmortuaries.net Read more

On Sunday, November 21, 2021 the world and our family lost one of the finest human beings ever born. Cary Watkins was an amazing man, loving father, grandfather, husband, and friend. Cary was passionate about everything he was involved with. As a Marine in Vietnam, he flew more combat missions than any other Marine officer throughout the war as a fixed-wing aviator during his first tour and a helicopter pilot in his second. He also flew Henry Kissinger to the Western White House to plan and execute the transition of power in the days before President Nixon resigned. He was awarded the Silver Star, two distinguished Flying Crosses, and a Purple Heart , amongst many, many other medals. The way in which he served our country is the same way he lived his life-with passion. After 20 years of service, he retired to Apple Valley, California and became a successful business owner. He served as president of the Victor Valley Board of Realtors, CAR/NAR executive committees, and on the board of Victor Valley Community Hospital. He was inducted into the Gallery of Achievement, an honor given to outstanding alumni from Brecksville High, Ohio. It was in Apple Valley that he met and married Lucy Peterson on July 4, 1993. In 1999 Cary and Lucy moved to North Logan, Utah. Determined to make a difference in his new town, he ran for mayor, won, and helped put North Logan on a solid trajectory for years to come. Under his term, King Park was acquired and developed at the mouth of Green Canyon, 200 East was completed, the North Logan City Center area was designated, and he won a hard-fought battle for round-abouts. Cary and Lucy founded Art on the Lawn, an annual art fair fundraiser (2006-2018) for local high school art programs. Cary was a remarkable and avid handball player well into his eighties and a dedicated golfer. He taught himself to ski later in life, learned Spanish, and to play the piano-skipping the basics and going straight to Jazz. To quote his step-son Carter, "Tell a Marine to move a mountain, hand him a shovel and he will move the mountain! It might not be pretty, but it will move." Cary moved mountains. Cary, we were so fortunate to have had you in our lives. You were truly a blessing to the world, its thanks would never be requested nor accepted, but presented nonetheless. Rest in peace while you play the back nine at Augusta with Jesus, manicure the gardens with Moses, and sing with Frank Sinatra and the angles. You are missed, you are loved, and you will always be remembered. David Cary Watkins was born in Cleveland, Ohio to Mary McConnell and Theodore Quincy Watkins and was the eldest of five children. After high school he went on to attend the University of Nebraska, B.S., and Pepperdine University, M.B.A. Cary is survived by his wife Lucy, children Sean, Jeff (Judy), and Chris (Trish) Watkins; step-children Kate Randall and Carter (Melissa) Randall; ten grandchildren, and Gwen Watkins (divorced). Siblings Ted (Sue), Lee (Dawn), Sarah, Becky (Tom Zuchowski) Watkins, and loving nieces and nephews. Cary requested only a memorial service, where family and friends will gather on a summer evening. The American and Marine flags will be flying. Taps, the final call of the evening, will echo over the fields of his North Logan home. Semper Fi.

She especially loved Primary and had fond memories of the many years serving as Girls Camp Director. She had a deep love for her Savior and always held him close to her heart. Our Mother was a shining example in our lives. She was kind, loving, and accepting of everyone. Her smile would light up a room and she always had a twinkle in her eyes. She adored and loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. She had an innate ability of making you feel like you were the most important person to her.

If you were ever blessed by one of her hugs, you knew you were part of the FAMILY. Mom was always ready for a good time, creating many great memories we will always cherish. Whether we were playing games, camping, fishing, Christmas at the cabin, enjoying a girl's getaway, or toilet papering the neighborhood, it was always a blast! She just loved laughing and having fun and everyday was an adventure with her! She was an avid bowler on the same league for over 50 years, making many lifelong friends. We loved all the years of her coaching and supporting all of our sports teams. She was our biggest fan! She had a great love for the Utah Jazz and rarely missed a game.

Diane Wiser Dunn was born October 16th, 1960, in Preston, Idaho and grew up in Lewiston, Utah. As the eldest of seven kids, she was the family ringleader, and loved to play and lead her siblings out on adventures. She played quarterback in the neighborhood football games, pitched on the ward softball team, and led out on the daily "night games" with her siblings and cousins. She loved to sing and found great joy in sharing her gift with others. If there was a campfire, she would often pull out her guitar and lead her family and friends in singing her favorite John Denver songs. After graduating from Sky View High in 1978, she attended Snow College in Ephraim, Utah. Some of her fondest memories were centered on her experience at Snow College. She served as the Associated Women Students President (1979-80) and found great joy serving with the other executive council members. During her sophomore year of college, she met her brother's new best friend, Larry "Paul" Dunn. Paul joined her on her many spontaneous trips to Downata Hot Springs and to midnight movies in Logan. Secretly, Paul had a huge crush on Diane. Diane, on the other hand, kept setting him up on dates with other girls and even acted as his mustache-wearing waiter during his junior prom. Needless to say, their friendship grew during those summer months. Both decided to serve missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the same time. Sister Wiser served in the Florida, Tallahassee Mission. After they both returned from their missions, Paul and Diane's friendship blossomed into a full-blown romance, and they married in the Salt Lake Temple on August 3rd, 1984. Paul joined the military shortly thereafter, and he and Diane took their adventure on the road. As a wife of an Army officer, she lived in Texas, Kansas, Georgia, Nebraska, Utah, and Germany. She saw almost all of the United States and most of Europe. Each new home brought new adventures and opportunities to serve. Diane served as a Relief Society president twice, a Primary president three times, and a Young Women's president once. But of all her callings, she loved being a nursery leader the very most. She served in at least ten different nursery assignments during her life, and oh, how she loved to teach the little ones! She gained the title of "Baby Whisperer" because she could get any baby to settle down and stop crying. It was a God-given gift. The babies could feel her love for them. During her husband's deployment during Iraqi Freedom, Diane served as the Relief Society president in the Hinesville, Georgia ward. With almost all the men in the ward deployed, she was fondly called "Sister Bishop". Even while caring for her own five children, she tirelessly worked to care for the families who were momentarily fatherless. When Paul returned to the United States, Diane and the children were not at the parade ground to welcome him home. Though his fellow soldiers were concerned, Paul knew where he could find Diane. One phone call to the church house was all it took. Diane was there, working; she hadn't been told that he was coming home. It took just fifteen minutes of frantic running, cleaning, loading up the five kids, and driving before she was there, back in the arms of the man she loved. After retirement from the Army, Diane and Paul moved back "home" to Utah, first to Lewiston, then to North Logan. Diane took over the role of organizing family reunions, wanting to make up for lost time with her brothers, sisters, and cousins. Her life was centered around family, and she found the greatest joy in seeing her nieces and nephews develop the type of relationships she treasured the most. Diane raised five wonderfully independent and strong children. Jacob married Lindsay Ricci and they set up their home in Bellevue, Nebraska. Rachel married Alex Josephson and moved to Los Alamos, New Mexico. Joshua married Megan Serpa and moved to Tracy, California. Rebekah married Christopher David and moved to Orlando, Florida. Jonathan married Katelyn Cozzens, and though he's currently a senior at Utah State University, he and his wife will undoubtedly move away as they continue their own adventure. Diane was so proud of her children, but, oh, how she wished they weren't quite so very far away! Her greatest consolation was her six beautiful grandchildren. She looked forward to FaceTiming with each of them every week and reminded them that "Grandma loves you so, so, SO much!" Diane Wiser Dunn passed away on November 14th after fighting a valiant, four-year battle against uterine cancer. While she was often in pain, she faced this last great challenge with love and understanding, and was never bitter or vengeful. But she was stubborn! Her desire was always to live long enough to see all her grandbabies grow up and so she never gave up. Nevertheless, she consistently declared, "It's in the Lord's hands, and it is in Him that I trust." Diane and Paul would like to thank all those who have cared for her these past four years, both in the medical field and in the community. She often acknowledged that it was only through the prayers, the love, and the professionalism of all who she associated with that gave her those extra years with her family. Thank you!
