Lawrence Wane Bull, 66, of Roy, Utah sadly and unexpectedly passed away on December 22, 2023. Wane was the oldest child of Lawrence W. Bull and Mildred Walker and was born in Salt Lake City on September 3, 1957.
He spent his childhood throughout Utah in Salt Lake City, Moab, Bountiful, and Logan and moved to Arkansas his junior year of high school. There he met his lifelong best friends, Gerry King and Mick Smith.
Wane served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the California, Arcadia Spanish Speaking Mission. He treasured the time he had on his mission and loved any opportunity to converse in Spanish since.
After his mission Wane attended Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho. It was there that he met his dear sweetheart, Doris Stacey while attending a dance class. Wane and Doris courted and were sealed for time and all eternity as eternal dance partners in the Salt Lake City Temple on July 18, 1980.
Wane worked as a sales representative. Throughout his career he sold flooring, furniture, nutritional supplements, paper products, and cookies. He particularly enjoyed selling nutritional supplements because he was passionate about helping people feel their best.
Wane was a hard-working, dedicated husband and father who put his family first. He was an example of David O. McKay’s words, “No success can compensate for failure in the home.” Wane lived for his family, attending childrens and grandchildren’s concerts, recitals, sports games, and other events, and you could count on him to record it. He loved to have fun, and was a kid at heart. In his youth, he enjoyed spelunking and repelling. Later in life he enjoyed taking the family boating, four wheeling, going camping, bike riding, and playing in the park. He would also find any excuse to take his family out for ice cream.
Wane served faithfully and diligently in all church callings he was given. Those that he served remember his smile and warm personality. He had a good sense of humor, a genuine laugh, and smile that made him easy to talk to. He had a true interest in getting to know those around him and understood that people were more important than anything else.
One of the last quotes he recently shared with his family was one from President Russel M. Nelson, “If we are to have any hope of sifting through the myriad of voices and the philosophies of men that attack truth, we must learn to receive revelation.” Wane was in tune and was a great example of receiving personal revelation. He had an unwavering testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ and continually shared his testimony by the way he lived.
Wane is survived by his wife, Doris Bull, children Jason Bull, Stacey Chadwick, Andrew Bull, and Kristen Avery and siblings Mark Bull, Mila Taylor, Carl Bull, Ross Bull, Ali Wilkinson, and Genevie Strickland.
