Darl Field

March 11, 1931 — February 25, 2022

Darl Ray Field, 90, of Roy, was a beloved son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, cousin, and friend. He passed away surrounded by his family on February 25, 2022.

Darl was born on March 11, 1931, to Harold and Hazel Field. He was the fourth of eight children. He loved to drive, work in the shop, tinker with things, and spend time with family and friends. He graduated from Weber High School and continued his education at Weber State. He spent many hours working on the family farm hauling hay and thinning sugar beets. He later followed in his grandfather’s and brother’s footsteps and began working at Union Pacific Railroad as a rail car inspector. He had the opportunity to serve an LDS mission, however, he was drafted into the U. S. Army and served in the Korean War from November 1951-1953. His task was transporting the Colonel in a military jeep. He served with distinction in the 7th US Infantry and Army Reserve until November 1959.

Darl married Lou Ann Seifert on October 8, 1954, in the Salt Lake Temple. They built the family home in Roy with assistance of Otto Seifert and completed it in 1959. Darl loved the home they built and lived in the home until his passing. Lou Ann was the love of his life for 50 years. He became a widower on February 3, 2004, when Lou Ann lost her battle with cancer. He liked to tell everyone that “Lou Ann was the cream of the crop.” Together they raised a daughter Linda, and a son Brent, that accompanied them on all boating, camping, and snowmobiling/ATV adventures.

He was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Roy 2nd Ward. He served in many capacities from counselor to Bishop. He enjoyed speaking and being on the High Council. Service was his life, and he took ministering to his friends and neighbors very seriously and dreaded canceling appointments. He and Lou Ann were temple workers in the Ogden Temple for more than a decade and enjoyed connecting with all. He stood for service and righteousness.

Darl was dedicated to his family. He dearly loved his two children, ten grandchildren, and thirteen great grandchildren. He liked to remember all of the details of their life and chat with them about their goals and plans. He was a constant in all of their lives. He attended every football/basketball game, family gathering, or activity he could. He could tell you all their names, ages, and important details about their life. He taught and showed them how to be a man of character, integrity, strength, and fortitude. He enjoyed all the adventures of life and was always available when there was a project to be done, especially if it involved driving - oh how he loved his many Ford trucks.

In 1991 he retired from Westinghouse/Phillips as a Warehouse Manager, where he enjoyed working with the daily challenges of transportation. He had a strong work ethic and always made sure to complete the task. He developed a passion for working in his yard, using the riding lawn mower, and putting around on the four wheeler. Darl was appointed to the Board of Trustees for the Roy Water Conservancy District, serving from 1989 until his passing. On April 12, 2022, he would have completed his 33rd year of service. He lived for the meetings, water conventions and the annual activation of secondary water to best serve his beloved community of Roy.
