Obituary

Dale W. Lewis passed away February 26th at the age of 95 in American Fork, Utah. He was born May 4, 1924 to Siney Charles Lewis and Clara Amelia Dahlman Lewis in Heber, Utah and was the youngest of six children.

As a young man, Dale attended school in Provo, Utah, at both Ferrer Jr. High and Provo High School. While in his youth he enjoyed spending time outdoors and hiking. After graduation, he attended Brigham Young University before serving in the army during World War II. While serving our country, Dale received a Purple Heart medal for a wound he received in France. Because of his injury, he was shipped to England and finished his active duty in allied forces offices around Europe. It was during this time Dale found a great love of clocks that would follow him throughout his life. He particularly loved cuckoo clocks, especially those from the Black Forest area of Germany.

Upon returning home, Dale met and married Aliene Zeeman. They were married in the Salt Lake City Temple on November 13, 1946 and together they had five children. After finishing his education at Brigham Young University, Dale was hired at Geneva Steel and worked there for 42 years.  

Upon retiring, Dale and Aliene enjoyed traveling and went on many trips together until February 24, 1990 when his beloved wife Aliene passed away.

In 1992, Dale married Isabella Phillips. The two of them traveled together and volunteered in both the Provo and Mt. Timpanogos Temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. His life was dedicated to serving others and sharing his love of his Savior, Jesus Christ. On November 1, 2011, Isabella passed away and Dale spent the remainder of his life surrounded by family. He greatly enjoyed his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Dale is survived by his children: Carolyn Young (Ralph), Marianne Petersen (Howard), Brent Lewis, Sandra Miller (John), Anet Griggs (Darrell), 28 grandchildren and many great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by Aliene Zeeman Lewis and Isabella Lewis as well as his grandson Trent Spencer and great great grandson Cohen Donald Lewis.

He was a generous and kind hearted man that will be missed dearly.
