Mark Farr Dickerson
-- 1943 ~ 2011 --

Mark F. Dickerson, born August 27, 1943 to Maybelle F. and Wesley R. Dickerson in the small town of Coalville, Utah, passed on to the great outdoors of Heaven on Thursday, February 3, 2011.

Mark grew up in the wilds of Roosevelt, Utah, riding bikes, playing cowboys and Indians, and fishing with his three brothers: David, Brent and Bruce. The screams of his two sisters, Arla and JoAnn, live in the memories of those who witnessed that teasing shovel or stick full of a curling snake or mouse.

A lifelong member of the LDS church, Mark carried a strong testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ and a deep love for his scriptures. God’s hands on earth are those who answer his call to serve. Mark devoted three-and-a-half years on a service mission at the Utah Valley Hospital, wearing out the knees of many pants as he knelt in prayer in the hospital rooms of the sick. A friend to the struggling and downtrodden, he often extended his hand in forgiveness and non-judgment to lift the spirits of those who needed it most. Laughter was his soundtrack and lasting smiles his gift.

Mark’s zeal for life and boundless energy has left a legacy of avid hunting, snowmobiling, fresh and deep sea fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, four-wheeling, travel, and a love for amazing food, to the many friends and family he left behind.

His passion for life was only surpassed by his passion for his one true sweetheart: Linda Kay Vance. Their love story began in 1963 on a beach in Santa Monica, California, and has seen them through forty-eight years of marriage, six children and spouses: Brian & Trina, Steve & Michelle, Melinda & Wayne, Eric & Holly, Kim & Dustin and Scott & Tiffiney, twenty-eight rambunctious grandchildren, and two pug-dog companions, Bugle Boy and Miss Piggy.

He laughed, he loved, he lived!
"Crackpot Mark went to Heaven"
And the world lost one funny man.
We love you Dad
