Stanley D. Elison

September 20, 1943 - June 20, 2016

Stanley D. Elison, 72, passed away June 20, 2016.  He was born September 20, 1943 to Dale and Afton Elison in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Stan graduated from Davis High School in 1961.  He married Mary Ellen Hartey in Kaysville, Utah on February 19, 1965.

Stan was a devoted husband and father.  His passions were his family, serving Jesus, golfing, motorcycles and competitive cowboy shooting.  He retired from D.D.O. after a successful career with the federal government.  Stan also served in the United States Air Force and as an assistant golf pro at Brigham City Golf Course.  He was a jack-of-all-trades and could fix and do anything that he set his mind to; made possible by his uncompromising work ethic.

He had a very special place in his heart for his two dogs, Simon and Pippin.  He was a true servant of the Lord in many capacities and ministries including The Christian Motorcyclists Association; is the recipient of the CMA’s Servant’s Heart Award for 2016.  His ability to light up a room with his smile will be truly missed by family and friends.

Stan is survived by his son, Dale Elison (Juliana), Gig Harbor, WA; daughters:  Lisa (Mike) Sawyer, Ogden, UT; Darla (John Gaylen) Matthews, Buckeye, AZ;  Diane (Ronn) Hartman, Layton, UT; sisters: Kathy Carling and Yvonne Brown; and step-son, Chad (Tenna) Haring, Layton, UT; ten grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.

He is preceded in death by his parents, his sister, Pam Reeves and his loving wife, Mary.

To the family, I'm very sorry for your loss. It's hard to know what to say when someone we love falls asleep in death. I hope each day gets better for you and that you will find comfort in the Bible's assurance that we can see our loved ones again one day.~ Book of John Chapter 11, verse 25.

I worked at Clover Club with Stan. We were on the lowest wrung, the clean up crew. He helped make it a fun time. See the Clover Club Foods ad in the 1960 Davis High yearbook, he is standing on the left, I am sitting down. The smirk on his face in the photo shows we were posed doing nothing at all what we really did at the factory, but there we are in the year book, four of us all going to Davis High.... Ha! So long ago.. So sorry to read of his passing..

I was sorry to read of Stan's passing. I grew up with Stan and attended schools with him. I always enjoyed and appreciated his humor and smile whenever he would meet you. My sympathies to all his family at this time and the days to follow. Sincerely, Patricia King Barber

I just came across this info. I am so sorry. Stan was my partner in chemistry class at Davis High School. We shared many laughs and had such fun times with Mr. Butler our chem teacher. I know you will miss Stan, a dear friend to many.
