Jeffrey Clyde Dinsdale

May 27, 1948 — April 29, 2024

South Weber

Jeffrey Clyde Dinsdale, 75, made the brave decision to leave his body behind on April 29, 2024, at McKay Dee Hospital after congestive heart failure led to multiple organ failure.


He was strong and resilient as he outlived his medical prognosis being released from hospice in 2023. However, his health noticeably declined last January when it was found that all three wires for his pacemaker shorted out.


Jeffrey was born May 27, 1948, to Pauline Lavern Dinsdale and Albert Clyde Dinsdale at the Saint Benedict’s Hospital, in Ogden, Utah. He was the youngest in his family with one sister, Gale Kuki. Jeffrey attended Madison Elementary, Lewis Elementary, and Pingree Elementary, Washington Jr High, and finally Ogden High School, class of 1966.


Jeffrey met his sweetheart Pamela Kay Blakeley at a party, and it was love at first sight! In fact, he asked her to marry him that same night. Jeff and Pam got married at the age of 17 in his parent’s home April 23, 1966. They immediately began their family, Jeffrey Kim Dinsdale, Clint Dinsdale, Brian Dinsdale, Angela (Derek) Peterson.


After Jeff and Pam married, he worked at JB Big Boys on Washington Blvd. When he turned 18, he got a job at Wilson Meat Packing. He was able to buy a nice car. At 19 he bought his first home on 20th Adams Ave. in Ogden.


Jeff was a hard worker. He got into painting at Ogden Iron Works and even had some side jobs repairing and painting cars in his home garage. He chased his dream and moved to Arizona, bought a house there, continuing his work in steel and paint only to move right back to Utah and become a car salesman at Ogden Ford. Jeff traveled to Texas to sell Funny Face Air Fresheners and found himself back in Utah again. Jeff landed his final place of employment at Hill Air Force Base in March 1973 with AGE (Aerospace Ground Equipment) towing Aircraft for the F-4 Phantom and finally retiring as a Contract Specialist in Civil Engineering in September 2006. Jeff and Pamela ended up buying their forever home in South Weber where they could own and ride their horses. Jeff and Pam got into the Amway business where they felt very successful, meeting lots of positive and loving people that helped change their life for the better. Jeff suffered a heart attack which set their business back on its heels and the business never recovered. It felt like the end for his family as they weren’t sure that he’d recover from the heart attack.


He used to change cars like he’d change a shirt. Jeff had many cars throughout the years. He truly admired them.


Jeff was a member of the Wasatch Rods and Customs Car Club where he enjoyed getting together and driving his classics on cruise night.


He hosted a monthly poker night where his son in law and friends would come over and play.


Jeffrey was very close to his daughter and her family who lived in the house right next door to him. They were all one with him and did everything together. He had his spot reserved at her dining table and they did not leave home without him. He was up to going on every adventure with them.


He loved being outdoors camping, boating, fishing, and hunting. He loved vacationing with his daughter and her family, Tulum, Mexico being one of his favorites. He loved barbecues and get togethers with family and friends.


He was Grandpa to Stephanie (Christopher), Steven, Savannah (Jayd), and many others. He was known as Gramps to his daughter’s children, Megan (Matthew), Alexander, Landon, and many of their friends. He was Great Grandpa to Mallissa, Christopher (CJ), Jayden, Braxdyn, Lyrik, Eden, and many others.


Jeffrey is survived by three of four children. He was preceded in death by his wife, Pamela Dinsdale; his son, Jeffrey Kim Dinsdale; both his parents; and his sister.


Jeffrey and Pamela Dinsdale together again after 17 years reuniting with so many loved ones.
