David George Dibble
April 8, 1949 ~ February 8, 2014
On February 8, 2014 our sweet father, David George Dibble finished his valiant fight with brain cancer to return to our Heavenly Father and loved ones waiting for him. He was a champion to us all.
He was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on April 8th, 1949, to Wallace Reid and Francis Jack Dibble. Dave was blessed to be apart of a home full of love and respect. He had a happy childhood with his siblings, Kathy Dibble, Brasher, Steven, Karen Dibble Anderson,, Joyce, Wendy Dibble Flanders, Barbara Dibble Larsen, and Mike. Dave graduated from East High School in 1967. He shared his love for music in the school choir, and began his enjoyment of running with the cross country team.
Dave diligently served in the Anchorage, Alaska mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, where his traits of hard work and service were strengthened. Soon after returning home, Dave met the love of his life, Jill Lynn Hansen, and were sealed eternally in the Salt Lake City Temple on August 18, 1971.
Dave began providing for his family by working for The United States Postal Service when he was 22 and retired at the age of 64. In those 42 years Dave became loved and admired by all those who worked with him. Known to co-workers as “more mail”, he would yell those words to bring a smile, and to lighten a day. So many along his daily route were touched by the efforts he made to be apart of their lives.
Dave was given the opportunity to serve in the LDS church for many years. He was a counselor, a leader, a bishop, and a friend to all those he met. In fact it was often said when speaking of him, “We love that man!”
His lessons were taught through example, and his loves were passed down to each and every one of his children; his love for music, his love for babies, his love for family, and his love for the Savior.
Dave leaves his legacy and example to his 6 children; Kenneth (Angie Mascaro) of Draper, Rebecca (Brad Condie) of Layton, Gregory (Mindy Saxey) of Riverton, David (Stephanie Burge) of Meridian, Idaho, Richard (Laura Babcock) of Herriman and Nicholas (Sandy). He was a proud and greatly loved grandfather to 23 beautiful grandchildren who adored him.
Dave is preceded in death by his father, Wallace Reid, mother, Francis Jack, and loving sister, Joyce.
A viewing will be held Friday, February 14, 2014 from 6:30-8 pm at the LDS meetinghouse located on 275 E 10600 S, Sandy, UT. The funeral will take place Saturday, February 15, 2014 at 11 am at the same meetinghouse, with a viewing from 9:45-10:45 a.m. The interim will take place at Larkin Cemetery located at 10600 South and 1700 East in Sandy, Utah.
