Grant Canfield Beutler

Born in Ogden, UT to Eden Winn Beutler and Stella Canfield Beutler. Grant's sisters were Carol May Weeks (deceased), Lynne Tupper (deceased) and Mary Ann Freeby. He married LaDella Murdock (deceased) on November 26, 1952, in the Logan Temple. They were married for 55 years. He later married Nina Leishman Johnston on December 30, 2008. They were married for 14 years. Grant was blessed with 6 children: Winn Murdock, Becky Petrey, Kellie (deceased), Leslie Abbott, Mathew Grant, and Carrie Morgan; 17 grandchildren and 29 great grandchildren.

Grant worked primarily for United Airlines during his career, and was stationed in Elko, Cheyenne, New York, Chicago and Denver. He was an avid reader and could converse with anyone on just about any subject with ease. On Saturdays he was a ski instructor at Winter Park Resort in Colorado. Grant took his children and grandchildren on multiple backpacking trips in the Wind River Range, WY. He loved biking and on his 80th birthday he biked 50 miles with friends and family.

Grant served in many leadership positions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints including five bishoprics and three missions. A highlight for him was serving as Bishop of the Denver First Ward. He was a missionary in the Northern States Mission and fulfilled two humanitarian services missions in Salt Lake City and Frankfurt, Germany.

Grant will be greatly missed by all who were privileged to know him.
