David John Ward
1963 ~ 2015

On the evening of January 13, 2015, our loving husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, and friend, David John Ward, 51, passed away peacefully from complications due to leukemia, surrounded by close family. Dave was born to Kenneth Ward and Betty Dodd.

Dave served in the Japan Nagoya LDS mission and continued his service to the church throughout his life. He served in the Utah National Guard and, after returning home from his mission, served as a translator for the linguistics division.

Dave loved to spend time with the love of his life and high school sweetheart, Wendy. They were married and sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake City LDS temple in 1985. He enjoyed family vacations, playing games with his daughters, and staying always busy and active. Dave found so much joy in being a grandpa, carving out as much time as possible to spend with Owen. Dave was a kind, generous, hard-working man and will be greatly missed by many.

David is survived by his wife, Wendy; daughters, Ashley (Tyler) Spurlock, Whitney (McLean) Carpenter, Kennedee Ward; father, Kenneth Ward; siblings, Ruth Caldwell, Joe Ward, Terri Judd; and grandchild, Owen Carpenter. His mother, Betty Dodd, and brother, Kenneth Mark Ward, preceded David in death.

The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at IHC. You served a great man.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, January 17, 2015, at 11:00 am at the Highland East LDS Stake Center Chapel, 4679 West 11000 North, Highland, Utah. Family and friends may call Friday evening from 6:00-8:00 pm at the Warenski Funeral Home, 1776 North 900 East, American Fork, Utah. Interment will take place in the Highland City Cemetery.
