David Milton Moon
1934 ~ 2014

David Milton Moon "Milt", returned peacefully to his Heavenly Father on May 31, 2014, following a battle with colon cancer. Milt was born on October 6, 1934 to Nephi and Ettie Lavina Fuller Moon along with his twin brother, Merrill, in Provo, Utah. They were the 11th and 12th of a family of 13 children. He grew up in Hanna, Utah on a farm and ranching operation owned and operated by his father. Milt always felt grateful to have been reared in a rural community where he learned to work hard and he enjoyed his association with his siblings and cousins, who were his neighbors.

Milt attended elementary school in Tabiona and Provo, Utah. He attended junior and senior high schools in Provo and also graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in accounting. He fulfilled a mission to the New England States with his brother Merrill and later was drafted and served in the Army for 21 months. Milt met the joy of his life, Karen Carlton, on a blind date at Brigham Young University while he was a sophomore. They were later married on October 2, 1957 in the Logan LDS Temple during Milt’s 2 week leave from the Army. They reared a family of 8 wonderful children who all survive him: David (Kathryn Thomas), Darrell (Laurie Lofgreen), Lynette (Kevin) Van Beuge, Michelle (Ronald) Nay, Kathy (Scott) Simons, Mary Ann (Tracy) Thornley, Denise (Jonathan) Brinley, Kyle (Sarah Snyder). He is also survived by one of his sisters, Marjorie (Robert) Kent, and by two brothers, Floyd and Roger (Lana); 51 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren.

Milton spent 35 years working for the Hogle family in Salt Lake City and often expressed his gratitude for the opportunity he had to be associated with them. They were always very considerate and kind to him and Karen. Milton was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many capacities throughout his life including serving as a councilor in a Bishopric and later as a Bishop. He served many years as a councilor in a Stake Presidency and as an ordinance worker in two different temples. He served a second mission later in life, accompanied by Karen to Nauvoo, Illinois. Milt was a hard worker, adored his children and grandchildren and was a great example of integrity and service. He often told his family that one of the best gifts a father could give his children was for them to know that he loved their mother. He treated Karen with utmost respect, gentle kindness, grateful appreciation and selfless generosity. One of his sons said of him that he was the personification of gentleness, meekness and love unfeigned. The rest of his family all agree. His greatest wish is for his family to live according to the truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that he can be with them in the hereafter.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, June 7, 2014 at 11:00 am at the Manila LDS Building, 3396 North 900 West, Pleasant Grove.
