Edward Ray Summers

September 27, 1931 — April 29, 2024

Surrounded by his family, Edward Ray Summers, 92, passed away at his home on April 29, 2024, in Pleasant View, Utah. Edward was born September 27, 1931, to Ivan Alvord and Elizabeth Knowles Summers at their home in Avon, Utah. Growing up on the family farm in Avon, Ed loved being outside and he enjoyed exploring the mountains by hiking, hunting, and fishing. He graduated from South Cache High School in Hyrum in 1950. Ed developed a passion for riding motorcycles at a young age and continued to ride until late in his life.

 

On May 11, 1951, Ed married his sweetheart Ruth England. The two were married for 73 years and had three children, Carl, Jean, and Kent. Shortly after getting married Ed enlisted in the US Navy. Working as an Aerial Photographer, Ed served in the Korean War and was stationed in Adak, Alaska; San Diego, California; and Washington D.C.

 

After the Navy, Ed continued government service and worked various jobs before spending 36 years working at the IRS in Ogden, Utah. After retiring from the IRS, Ed took on his favorite role, “full time grandpa.” Ed loved nothing more than spending time with and supporting his grandchildren and he was adored by them.  

 

Ed was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served in a variety of callings including as a missionary in the Inner-city Ogden Mission with his wife.

 

Ed is survived by his wife, Ruth; his children, Dr Carl (Lorayne) Summers, Jean (Greg) Brighton, and Kent (Jackie) Summers; 10 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, and his five siblings, IlaBeth, Ivan, George, Mary, and Riley.
