Laddy Gean McFarland, 90, passed away on Friday, July 14, 2023. He was born on September 17, 1932 in Heman, ID, the son of Archibald and Alice McFarland.

 

He married Mary Dell Butterfield on April 29, 1952 in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple. Laddy served in the US Navy in the Korean War on the USS Frank Knox. In 1956, after Laddy returned from military service, they moved to Ogden, UT. Laddy attended school for auto mechanics and worked his career as a machinist and mechanic in the aerospace industry.

 

Laddy was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

 

He enjoyed camping, hunting, fishing, trap shooting, and smoking salmon.

Laddy’s life exemplified hard work and the importance of enjoying each day. Laddy always had a story to tell. He was very social and loved to sit and chat for hours on end. He enjoyed telling jokes and laughing all the way to the end of his life.
