Howard (Hud) D. Bean
-- 1926 ~ 2011 --

With one last breath and one final tear our sweetheart, father, grandfather, brother and friend tenderly passed through the veil surrounded by those who love him most Friday, May 13, 2011.

Born to Bertha Whiting and Donald Howard Bean March 24, 1926 in Provo Utah, Howard was one of eight children. Howard’s childhood and school years were spent in Price Utah. At the age of 17 Howard enlisted in the United States Navy during WWII serving in the South Pacific aboard the USS Sgt. Bay. Upon his return Howard met and married his eternal love, Connie Gay Christiansen September 12, 1947, their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple May 4, 1950.

Howard and Connie established their home in American Fork Utah where they raised three sons. Howard retired from Utah Power and Light following 37 years of dedicated service. As an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Howard served as Ward Clerk, Stake Clerk and Extraction Missionary prior to serving with his favorite companion Connie in the New Zealand Auckland Mission and the Mount Timpanogos Temple.

Howard is survived by his wife Connie, brothers Ray W, Bert J, Earl W and Scott W, along with a strong posterity including sons Donald Chris (Marekay), David Howard (Allison), Douglas Armo, 10 grandchildren, 27 great grandchildren with number 28 in waiting, along with three great, great granddaughters due this year. Howard was preceded in death by his parents, sister Vera, brothers Don L, and James L.
