Parowan High School
Joseph Robinson Lamoreaux - 5/11/2010
Class of 1957Joseph Robinson Lamoreaux – passed away on May 11, 2010, in St. George, UT. He was born March 12, 1939, in Cedar City, UT, to Joseph Albert and Hilma Robinson Lamoreaux. He married Geraldine Stubbs on March 30, 1963, in the St. George LDS Temple.
Dad graduated from Parowan High School in 1957. He then joined and served in the U.S. Air Force from 1957 to 1961. Upon his honorable discharge, he became a strong member of I.B.E.W. Local 354 where he proudly held many union offices including Pres. and Bus. Mgr. After retiring, he and mom moved from their residence of 40 years in Orem to their present home in Washington.
His favorite pastimes were hunting and fishing with his children and grandchildren and golfing with his friends. He will be remembered for his lifelong service to his family and those around him. He could always be found delivering fresh vegetables from his garden in Paragonah, helping with household repairs, making projects for the Cub Scouts or Relief Society, and entertaining with jokes and stories. From Dad we have learned the value of hard work, the importance of humor, and the wisdom of following his advice to “stop your sniveling.”
He is survived by: wife, Geri; eight children, Monique (Nate) of St. George, UT, Richard (Marci) of Orem, UT, Michelle (Craig) Fontaine of West Jordan, UT, Melanie Bills of Highland, UT, Russell (Ellen-Ora) Orem, UT, Marché (Dell) Boyer of Waukesha , WI, Melissa (Ned) Heaton of St. George, UT, and Rand (Amber) of Orem, UT; 25 grandchildren; 2 great-grandchildren; sisters, Gaytha (Joseph) Benson of Beaver, UT, Joan Mortensen of Parowan, UT, and Mina Brown of Phoenix, AZ; and brother, Duane (Sonya) Lamoreaux of St. George, UT. He was preceded in death by his parents.
To us he will always be the greatest hunter, catch the biggest fish, have the lowest golf score, and tell the best stories. He will always be ten feet tall and bullet-proof! We miss you, dad!
