Dr. John Glade Allred of Syracuse, Utah passed away peacefully at home in the presence of family on Thursday, April 6, 2023. He was 86 years old. John was born on June 19, 1937, to Glade and Verna Allred in Manti, Utah and was the oldest of three brothers: John, Jim, and Dale. John was taught young how to work, how to keep his word, loyalty, friendship, and the value of education. As a boy he raised every kind of animal and has always been an avid hunter.
John graduated from Utah State University and then Washington State University in pursuit of his lifelong calling as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. He also served in the armed forces as a Captain in the United States Army. During his time in the military, he received numerous awards for marksmanship. Known for his skill and knowledge, he worked as a talented veterinarian for more than 50 years, the majority at Associated Veterinarians in Roy, Utah. He was blessed to practice with some of his best friends. Even in retirement, colleagues reached out to consult with him for many years. He loved being the guy who did the buffalo on Antelope Island and was always quick with a memory of this farm or that great rancher.
The lessons he taught were by example. You treat your wife like a queen, you share what you have, you help others whether it is convenient or not, you’re honest and have integrity-period.
Dad loved to hunt, fish, and generally to be outside. Dad was a Scoutmaster for a lot of years, providing great campouts and guiding many young men to become Eagle Scouts under his leadership. He taught kids and grandkids how to shoot, fish, and love the outdoors and never missed a chance to hit the clay on clean up when the shooter missed.
Dad took his responsibility as a provider seriously. His family never wanted, and he worked countless hours making sure of it. A lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, John could be found filling assignments serving in the Church cannery, weeding onions on the Church farm, and helping out others however he could whether providing game meat and fish, or with the loan of a truck or tool.
John is survived by the love of his life, Jean; and his children, Dr. John David Allred (Caridee), Dr. Michael Glade Allred (Maria), Maryn Cook (Eric), and Alaina Allred; and 16 grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his father, Glade; mother, Verna; and brothers, Jim and Dale. We are confident that he is enjoying joyous reunions with family and friends and will be waiting impatiently for Jean to be at his side.
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Hospice nurses and aides who took such good care of Dad over the past weeks.
A graveside service will be held on 2:00pm Thursday, April 13, 2023, at West Point City Cemetery, 80 North 4000 West, West Point, Utah 84015. Family and friends are invited to pay their respects. Services entrusted to Lindquist’s Syracuse Mortuary, 869 South 2000 West, Syracuse, Utah 84075.
In lieu of flowers, Dad would rather you take your family to a good old café, order a cold Dr. Pepper, and drive up the canyon to see the deer and elk.
