Lynn Murray Spence
1935 ~ 2017

Lynn Murray Spence was born in 1935 to Charles D. Spence and Nora Murray Spence of Magna, Utah. He passed away October 23, 2017, surrounded by his sweet, eternal bride, Cheryl Christensen Spence, and all six of his children, Jeannine, David, Michele, Melanie, Murray and Justin, as well as many of his grandchildren and friends. During his lifetime he was an aerospace engineer, or as he called it “the missile business,” having worked at Cape Kennedy in the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo space programs, pursuing worlds beyond earth. At home and at church, he was very successful at pursuing the work of the Lord, teaching his family and the world around him about the Gospel.

Lynn was an enthusiastic missionary throughout his life. He served three full-time missions. First from 1955-57 in the East Central States Mission, serving Tennessee, Kentucky, and West Virginia. Later, he served with his wife, Cheryl, as his companion, first in the Florida Jacksonville Mission (2001-02) and then in the Michigan Detroit Mission (2007-08).

Lynn enjoyed his many church callings, from and including his service as Bishop and High Councilor, to his many callings as a youth leader and basketball coach. But perhaps his favorite calling was that of Sunday School Gospel Doctrine Teacher. He loved the scriptures, and loved teaching others about them.

He has now reunited with his father and mother, his sisters, Sara, Hanna, and Elaine, and his brother, Charles. He is survived by his wife and six children, plus 21 grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at the Alpine 3rd LDS Ward Chapel, 285 North Matterhorn Drive, Alpine, Utah. Family and friends may call on Friday, October 27, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the church and again on Saturday morning from 11:30 to 12:30 pm at the church prior to services. Interment will be at the Alpine City Cemetery.
