Marshal Dastrup – a devoted husband, a loving father,
a tender grandfather, a caring son, brother and uncle, a
faithful member of the LDS Church, a loyal friend, and a
man of integrity and vision. What more can be said of the
man who blessed the lives of countless people. Lincoln was
born October 5, 1953 in the small town of Susanville, California
to the proud parents of Shirlee Olsen Dastrup and the late
Rue Dastrup. Being the youngest of three, Lincoln proved
to be a pillar of strength for his two older sisters, Sherrie
and Lindsay, whom he both loved and served dearly.
At an early age, Lincoln moved to Utah and developed a
fondness and deep appreciation for the outdoors. Even in
his later years, one could find Lincoln riding horses on
the ranch, four wheeling across the sand dunes, flying airplanes,
relaxing in the waters of Lake Powell, camping and hunting
in the nearby mountains, and enjoying a simple conversation
with family and close friends over a campfire.
But above all, his greatest enjoyment in life came from
his family. Indeed, they brought him an unspeakable amount
of joy and were the root of his happiness. He was married
to Linda Lee Harmon, his beautiful sweetheart of 33 years.
Together they raised five remarkable children: Jarom, Chalet,
Aaron, Dallas, and Haley. Lincoln also excelled in the title
of "Grandpa Linc"; a title he cherished being
called by his eleven precious grandchildren.
Lincoln passed away June 1, 2011. For those that knew him,
they became inspired by his contagious smile, genuine personality,
and unconquerable spirit. For those that love him, they
await the day to be with him again.
In behalf of the Dastrup family, we would like to personally
express our deepest of gratitude for the outpouring of love,
support, and prayers of those around us. We sincerely thank
