Mark Raymond Clements - Died January 19, 2007 28 Sep 2018
My good friend and former mission companion Mark Raymond Clements passed away on January 19, 2007. Mark served in the GKLM from 1986 to 1987 under president's Ostergar and Gardner. Mark was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma or Bile Duct Cancer in October of 2005 shortly after running the St George Marathon and through the months that ensued waged a courageous battle against this rare and fast moving cancer. If you are interested here is a great blog site that documents those months of mark's battle. The video and life sketch posted here are also great remembrances. I think of Mark every year at this time as October conference and the St George Marathon approach (first weekend of October).

looking for missionaries 06 Jul 2016
2 missionaries were tracting in Clarksville Indiana back in 1982 or 83 and I excitedly invited them to come teach since I had just found out my ancestors were LDS but they wanted my husband to be there and he was only up in the middle of the night due to his work hours so they got permission to come at 2AM to teach us, all seemed golden then I stopped letting them come and I know they wondered why, their work was not in vain and I was hoping to tell them, since the 2 AM meeting was unique I was hoping someone would remember it

Elder Mitch Menlove died July 19th 2010 20 Jul 2010

If you knew Mitch, please leave a message for his family on this obituary page.

Mitch was one of a kind. He served the Lord through hard work and obedience as a missionary. He continued that work at home and was called as a Bishop in Phoenix, AZ while still in his 20's. He was a powerhouse and was respected and admired by his peers.

This is a sad day for us and a glorious day on the other side of the veil. Mitch continues the work he loved so much while living in this preparatory state. God Speed Mitch!

Passing of Elder Claye Robb 29 Nov 2008
I regret to pass on to other alumni who knew Elder Robb. He was my second to last companion and I dearly loved him.

Elder Robb passed away on Nov. 21, 2008. He was hit by a car while out walking.

Just a few facts about Elder Robb. He was a coach for the High School Softball team, recently appointed head coach.

He was currently serving as a Second Counselor in the Glines Stake Presidency. He has 4 daughters and a wife left behind.

In honor to Elder Robb, he was certainly a dedicated missionary, a hard worker. And obvious to his testimony he has certainly blessed the lives of several people. He will be missed!

Looking for... 30 Oct 2008
I am a researcher in Mormon history. I am tracking down a "Mission legend" about the Tennessee Mormon Massacre. I am looking for information on two elders who served in Lewis County Tennesse in 1974 when it was the Kentucky-Tennessee mission. Their names were Elder Roberts (no first name given) and Elder Kyle W Wilson. Both of their names came up while I was researching oral histories of the massacre.

Timmy Tim 29 May 2007
As of today Timmy will be moved to Trinity Health Care, the address is 1053 West 1020 South Provo, Ut. The number is 801-373-2630. You will have to ask for Timmy's room. I just talked to them and he was just getting settled into his room. When I visited him at the Hospital today he was asleep, but apparently he has been talking the nurses ears off. That is hard to believe I know ;). Anyways, I will post more info. when I get it. God Speed Elder AAP Timmy Gathof

Timmy Gathof 25 May 2007
Many of you will remember "Timmy Tim" Gathof. I recently found out that Timmy was involved in a serious accident on April 24. He was struck by a car, broke multiple bones, has had multiple surgeries, and has suffered some brain damage. He is currently (as of today, 5/25/07) in Utah Valley Hospital, preparing to be transferred to a nursing home sometime soon.

Timmy is an unforgetable guy. He lived in Louisville Kentucky for years, and was a huge fan and supporter of the missionaries there. He had a "missionary" badge labeled "AAP" (Assistant to the Assistant to the President). He often helped us out in various ways. He frequently called the missionaries in Louisville to wish us good night and would often sing (like "May Tomorrow be a Perfect Day"). Some vintage Timmy lines are: "you're the best!" and "uh, huh, yea!" and "that Johnny Johns" (or whatever your last name happened to be). He is, of course, a huge fan of the Osmonds. For the last several years Timmy has been living and working in Utah.

It turns out that this accident made the news in Utah. Maybe some of you have visited Timmy. I talked to him for a few minutes on the phone. He could say a few words but was unable to sing to me when he tried. It broke my heart.

Timmy would appreciate any letters, pictures, calls, or visits.

For now, you can call Utah Valley Hospital at (801) 357-7850.
Timmy's cell phone number is (801) 347-8122

I believe We are forever missionaries... 21 May 2007
I am grateful that I have served in two missions, Kentucky has thought me to be a strong and faithful valiant missionary, and I become complete as a missionary because of the experiences that I gained there. Nauvoo thought me to be a real missionary, I have understood that it is not a matter of title that I can be a missionary, the name tag is not the missionary work, but the serving with an eye single to the Lords glory is the work. Now that I am no longer using my title as a full time missionary by heart I know who I am. I know that little things that I do are great blessing or wasting, so my agency is a power to use for me to choose whom I wanted to glorify, either my self or the Lord. But I choose to give glory to my Father in Heaven and my Lord Jesus Christ, because I want to receive the happiness that they have, and because I love them. Just like the Pioneer, simple things that they have done in Nauvoo, such as building their houses and the temple, even the whole city, in spite the fact that they know they will be leaving everything behind, yet they know that it is the Lords eyes that matters most. No matter how simple our life will be, or how simple tasks or everyday activity we do, it is important to think "the Lords glory for we are missionary forever". The principle of missionary work is to understand our purpose to work, and by this we will comprehend the Lords purpose for the work. Have a wonderful day to every one! (=

We would also like to send our warm regards at this time of year. Last year was quite challenging as we adjusted to our new home in Southern Japan (very tropical.. a big change). We are also adjusting to our growing family and all the young men and women that we serve here. We hope that you are all anxiously engaged in the Work. Love the Jacksons of Okinawa

Just passin through 03 Sep 2006
We spent a month in Florida in August (crazy huh?) and our trip took an interesting turn of events. It entailed that we drive a van home to Utah instead of flying home. In the course of driving through, we passed through Kentucky. How much I wanted to go back there and prosylite among those great people again!

For those of you who knew Bro Gschwind in Erlanger (northern Kentucky), I fear he has passed on as I have not been able to find or visit with him as I have passed through on business trips. Last time I visited with him about 7 years back, he was not in very good health, but he was very happy. He was, and is still an inspiration to me in my life. A man of superior charactor and integrity.

And to add to being a small world, I was in the Oklahoma temple taking in a session when I noted the name tag on one of the officiators (not certain, but I think he was a counselor in the presidency of the temple) of Bro. Fish. I inquired of him if he knew Bishop Stan Fish of Cinci, one of the wards up there. He certainly did! Said it was his favorite uncle! He was delighted to hear stories I shared with him about his uncle.

This is a great site. I certainly hope all allumni find this site and get registered in. Thanks for the efforts in setting it up.
