Elroy (Roy) Alvin Loveridge
1927 ~ 2015

Elroy (Roy) A. Loveridge passed away 13 July 2015 due to heart failure and pneumonia. He was born on 1 Nov 1927 in Orem, Utah to Alvin A. and Pearl Skinner Loveridge. He attended schools in Orem graduating from Lincoln High School in 1946. He was awarded a full scholarship in track to BYU. He ran the 880 in 1.57 seconds, the record of which he broke when a senior in high school and held for almost 10 years. He was a member of the LDS church serving as a High Priest.

He was in the construction business with his father prior to be inducted in the US Army in Sep. 1950. He served in the artillery division, was in Korea for 12 months and honorably discharged in Jun. 1952 as a Sergeant First Class. He wrote faithfully in his Journal every day, even in Korea, and did so until his passing.

He married his sweetheart, Dorothy Drew, in the Logan Temple on 27 Dec. 1950 during leave from the Army before being shipped to Korea. They had two sons, Bret (deceased) and Dean Loveridge. His sons were the most important thing in Roy’s life; their well being was his first priority.

He graduated from Barber College in SLC and started barbering in the old Newhouse Hotel in SLC prior to opening his own shop in American Fork. After 17 years he sold his barber shop and returned to his first profession as a General Contractor. Roy worked in this profession for 16 years before opening another barber shop in American Fork. He retired in Feb. 2004. Fishing was one of his great loves as was hunting. He was a master carpenter creating many beautiful homes, furniture and cabinets.

He is survived by his wife Dorothy, son & daughter-in-law Dean & Sarah Loveridge, Palm Desert, CA; nieces Sara Spears, Renton, WA; and Teresa (Dennis) Sunday, Springville, UT.
