Condolences for Rulon Eames

Susan, I happened to be hiking near Granite Flats today in American Fork Canyon and my mind sailed back to a ward camp out we had there back in the late 1980s. Specifically I could see Rulon in my mind's eye swinging a large gate on which a number of laughing children were holding on to for dear life. And what a great laugh Rulon had. When I came home I did an internet search to see where Rulon was now and was deeply saddened and shocked to see of his passing. Rulon was one of a kind and he made a lasting impression on people, certainly on me. I loved the friendship we had and the gifts he shared so freely with others. He taught me much in the several years I was privileged to serve with him. I hope this message reaches you, finds you well and may peace be with you and your family.

This morning I was reading in the Book of Mormon and a passage reminded me of Rulon. Rulon lived and worked in Deseret Towers at BYU when I was a freshman in 1982. I remember Rulon well. HIs positive energy radiated in a literal sense and lighted the world. Rulon delivered a ward fireside on the life and testimony of Joseph Smith which, as long as I live, I will never forget. It affected me deeply and powerfully. Now, over 30 years later, that experience is still very real for me. It is one of only a few I've been able to cling to through the years as the storms of mortality have taken their toll. I searched for Rulon online this morning to try to find out what he had written lately, hoping that he had a blog or articles I could access. His was a voice I trusted then and know I could trust now. He was honest and true, an iron rod to those of us not blessed with such vast amount of knowledge or faith. I was stunned when my internet search turned up Rulon's obituary. Please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss. I am sure that Rulon has not thought of me or my family in decades - we were one of hundreds if not thousands who likely passed through his sphere of influence. However, I certainly have never forgotten him and his testimony. His sharing it with me has strengthened me immensely over the years. I remember Rulon and will always cherish what he taught me. May your family be comforted as you press forward without him.

Glenn and Marlene, We are so sorry for your loss. May His comforting love attend you always. We both miss our children when they leave, but know they are in a better place. We are supposed to go first, but it did not work out that way for us. God bless you and your family. Love, Vaughn and Danna

I am truly sorry to hear of Rulon's passing. I worked with Rulon when we were both interns for our counseling degrees and again later after licensing. Rulon was a man of integrity who loved others and always wanted to make their lives better. He was quick to smile and make people feel welcomed and valued. My heartfelt sympathies to his family; may you find comfort in your fondest memories of him and in his legacy of kindness.

I worked with Rulon for a short time at Voc Rehab. He was always offering his help and did tasks that were not necessarily in his job description, but he knew that if he did that job, it would help his co-workers. He always found only the good in people and did have a presence to him making you want follow his lead to be kind rather than spend time to dwell on the negative. My sincere condolences to his entire family during this difficult time.

To a man who brought light to others through sharing his knowledge and testimony, I send my gratitude for his service to me and my tour participants, many times over a period of several years.

I offer my heartfelt sympathies to the Eames family. I worked with Rulon in the mid '80s at KQPD in Ogden. I lost track of him since the station was sold, but I'm gratified to see he lived and loved and was loved by those around him. May you be comforted until you meet him again...

When I saw the notice in the paper of Rulon's passing, it made me smile because that is exactly how I remember him.......with that big old smile of his. I also remember him from high school. A super nice guy and always positive. My condolences to his family.

I am so very shocked and saddened at the passing of Rulon. I had the distinct privilege of having Rulon in my German classes for 3 years at Weber High. He was indeed a gifted learner having won region championships in his use of German, and won best in the state and in the nation in German competition. He not only was a superior student, he was also a close friend during the 3 years. I wish I had known of his passing and had been able to attend any services he had. My sympathy to his wife, parents, and family. Rulon, things will be wonderful for you in the next stage of your eternal existence now. Love you! Herr Ralph Rowley

I had classes with Rulon in High School. He was the type of person I could not forget - smart, witty and funny. He always helped if he was asked. His family is blessed for the time they had with him. I am truly sorry it was so short. You have my deepest condolences.

I remember so many times learning from Rulon's amazing wisdom. It was always a joy to be in his presence to enjoy his smile and laughter. He changed my day for the better each time we met. I will miss him.

I had the pleasure of working with Rulon a few years ago. We shared a mutual client through his job at the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. I was always so impressed at his kindness and his ability to always put his clients first. He had a way with words; always speaking very eloquently and diplomatically. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing.

I really enjoyed Rulon's friendship when we were young. He was a true bright spot in the school day. He had such a thirst for learning, and combined that with such kindness and humor. So sad that we lost him so soon. He has left a wonderful legacy in his family.

Rulon Eames was my neighbor and my friend...In high school he graciously helped me practice for an upcoming solo, inviting me over to his home and playing over and over til I learned the song. (Really quite a feat as I couldn't read music then or now!) The things I remember most about Rulon - his vast intelligence,his gentle manner, extreme kindness, optimism, and the way his face lit up when he smiled that GREAT smile! His light is shining even brighter now...if that is possible! He will be greatly missed!
