Clyn S. Bishop
-- 1938 ~ 2011 --

Clyn Stapley Bishop, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend passed away Tuesday, July 19, 2011 surrounded by his family.

He was born May 16, 1938 to Grant and Dail Bishop in Delta, Utah. He graduated from Delta High School and later from Utah State University with a degree in Forestry. After graduation, Clyn began work with the Utah State Forestry program and was instrumental in relocating the state nursery to its current location at the Point of the Mountain. Wanting to spend more time with his family, he started his own business and spent many rewarding years working side by side with children.

Clyn married Carlene Gardner and together they had two children. Clyn later married Leslie Sevy on June 7, 1969 in the St. George Temple and welcomed six children. They just celebrated their 42nd wedding anniversary.

He loved his family and had many dear friends. During the last month and a half he spent time with his children and grandchildren and was able to attend two family reunions sharing memories with those friends and family he loved so much. We will fondly remember sitting around the kitchen table playing games and swapping stories for hours.

Clyn was known for his love of service and constant willingness to help anyone in need. Whether it was a sprinkler or yard project or helping his children in their homes, he could be counted on to gladly help.

He had a strong testimony of his Savior, Jesus Christ and the gospel. This testimony gave Clyn and Leslie the desire to serve in 2008 and they were called to the Georgia, Atlanta North mission. After returning for a short period, they again felt the desire to serve and were called to the Raleigh, North Carolina mission from which they recently returned. Clyn loved every minute of being a missionary and having his wife as his constant companion.

He is survived by his wife, Leslie, and eight children: Russ (Susan) of Heber, Utah; Marcia Bishop; Gary (Aironn) of Meadow, Utah; Kevin (Amy) of American Fork, Utah; Shane (Angie) of Las Vegas, Nevada; Scott (Kristy) of Enoch, Utah; Lance (Celeste) of Clearfield, Utah; Laura Bishop of American Fork, Utah; and 17 grandchildren. He is also survived by his siblings Floy (Tom) Wagstaff of Ogden, Utah; Ken (Venice) of Delta, Utah; Nada (Riley) Turpin of West Jordan, Utah; Ross (BettyRae) of Ogden, Utah; and Drexel (Ken) Meacham of Mesquite, Nevada.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a beloved sister, Janice.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, July 23, 2011 at 11:00 am in the American Fork 21st Ward building, 261 North 900 East, American Fork, Utah. Friends may call Friday evening July 22, 2011 from 6:00–8:00 pm at the American Fork 21st Ward building, and from 9:30–10:30 am prior to the funeral service at the same building.
