Deloy Denning

June 4, 1938 - August 8, 2018

DeLoy Denning, surrounded by his loving family, returned peacefully to his Heavenly Father on August 8, 2018 at home in Spanish Fork, UT.

He is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Nancy and his children Kyle (Sherrain), Darren (Deena), Dawn (Brian) Smith, Janel (James) Foote, and Timothy (Lindi) along with eighteen grandchildren. He is also survived by those he took in as his own Shane "Sam" Moss, Mindy Moss, and Martha (Brent) Jensen, seven additional grandchildren, and his siblings Carolyn (Eugene) Pherson, Nancy (Larry) Lutke, Charlotte (Roy) Allen, Rex (Mary), and David (Joann). DeLoy also left behind many brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, and other beloved family members.

DeLoy was born June 4, 1938 to Nyle Ainsworth Denning and Afton Cook Denning in Idaho Falls, ID. They preceded him in death along with his older brother Charles.

DeLoy's very early years were spent in Idaho until his family relocated to the Vaughn, Montana area when he was 12 years old. He graduated from Simms High School in Simms, MT in 1956. After graduating, he decided to attend Brigham Young University in Provo, UT where he later made the decision to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He was called to serve in the Northern California mission from 1959-1961. He married the love of his life Nancy Jane Pearson shortly after returning home. They were sealed in the Cardston, Alberta Temple on June 1, 1961 for time and all eternity. After returning to BYU, he graduated with a degree in Elementary Education in 1963. DeLoy worked in the education field for a few years and went on to work in various other professions throughout his life.

DeLoy loved fishing, hunting, and various other outdoor activities which he enjoyed most alongside his family. After he retired, he dedicated seven years as a service missionary in Genealogy. While his body was failing him he always had a smile, story, joke or a song to sing. The family would like to thank all the many caregivers in both Utah and Montana, that attended to DeLoy in the last two (bonus) years of his life. We would especially like to thank Maple Creek Hospice for their wonderful end of life care.

Our beloved husband, father, and grandfather has found a new fishing hole in heaven. Gone fishing!

Until we meet again.
