School Story:

I envy PHS 1960 grads who grew up together with lifetime friends in Provo. The Valentine family moved to Provo during my junior year at Provo High, but I found PHS to be a safe place, and I cherish the friendships with many PHS classmates.

Voit Roper kicked me out of his English class during my senior year because I was (and still am) a smart aleck. (I later apologized to him years later while courting Shauna in his and her LDS Ward in Orem.)

Dear Classmates ….. As good as some of  us thought we were, at baseball, the fact is, Rulon Page was better than all of us!  I recall my older brother Don, telling me on several different occasions, that Rulon’s dad, Len Page, had forgot more about baseball than most guys ever knew. And Len passed on his knowledge of baseball to Rulon and his older brother, Dick. Those two brothers were truly talented and skilled baseball players.  I was fortunate to be on two different baseball teams with Rulon, and he was the catalyst to three different championship teams. He was a terrific pitcher in Pony League and an amazing infielder on our Chief League Championship teams, China City. I will never forget how much fun it was being a teammate to Rulon Page. He made all of us better players!  Joyce ….. you can take that to the bank!  Jim Griffiths

J.C. Glade Perry, 77, passed away peacefully at his home on October 20, 2019 after a brave fight with aggressive brain cancer.  

Glade was born on May 1, 1942 to Ivan Perry and Hannah Laurie Hair Perry in Vernal, Utah as the youngest of three children. Glade moved to Provo, Utah in June 1946 when he was four years old and spent his childhood living every boy’s dreams enjoying playing basketball, tennis, water skiing, fishing and hunting. Glade especially enjoyed spending time in the canyon on the Provo River fishing for trout. He earned the rank of Eagle Scout and the Duty to God award, and as a young man won several trophies in driving contests. He graduated from Provo High School in June 1960. 

After graduation, Glade enrolled at Brigham Young University to pursue a degree in engineering. In July 1961 he postponed school to serve in the French Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where he learned the French language and served for 30 months. His mission overseas sparked the beginning of a life-long love affair of exploring and traveling. Glade returned to BYU after his mission and in June 1966 met Carolyn Emma Stevenson at a dance in the BYU Wilkinson Center. They were married and sealed in the Salt Lake City temple on November 18, 1966. They enjoyed their 50th wedding anniversary in true Glade-celebratory fashion with a Mediterranean cruise with his loving wife, their four children and their childrens’ spouses.  

Glade graduated from Brigham Young University in 1968 with a B.S. degree in Business Administration, Industrial Management, and earned a Master’s Degree in Engineering Administration from the University of Utah in 1970. After graduation, Glade accepted a job in the management training program with General Electric as an engineer; the job moved him between work assignments to Erie, Pennsylvania, then Wilmington, North Carolina and later San Jose, California. In June 1973, Glade accepted a job in Utah to move his young family, with three children under 5 years old, closer to Carolyn’s and his parents, and settled in the Cottonwood Heights area. Over his career, Glade spent time in various roles involving computer science, programming, management, finance and operations. Glade was very entrepreneurial, and for several years owned and operated a successful computer store in Bountiful Utah. Glade had a fantastic mind that was always in learning mode, and enjoyed organizing and growing businesses. He had a gift with computers, and for years enjoyed developing software programs for companies across the nation.  

Having honed his skills early in life as a contractor in college, Glade was a talented craftsman and handyman who could repair, install and build just about anything. He spent many weeks over the years helping his children on significant home-improvement projects.  

Carolyn and Glade were blessed with four wonderful children, Darin, Kim, Kami and Nicole, who loved and adored their father. Glade was patient and kind with his children and did his best to instill in his children the ideas of faith, charity, kindness and an appreciation for travel and learning. 

Glade loved his wife, Carolyn; they were an inseparable pair and were rarely far from each other. Other than spending time with their children and grandchildren, and providing church service, Glade and Carolyn loved nothing more than traveling together. Their journeys took them to over 50 countries over the many years. Glade and Carolyn visited Oklahoma this past summer, completing his desire to visit all 50 United States. 

A life-long member of the LDS Church, Glade had an abiding love of and faith in his Savior. In 2011 Glade and Carolyn served an 18-month mission for the Church in Nice, France, teaching and serving young adults. Glade took great comfort in the principles of the gospel, and knowing that he would be with his family again.  

Glade was preceded in death by his parents, his older brother Dr. Kenneth I. Perry, older sister Betty LaDawn Perry Rawlings and his brother-in-law Monte D. Stevenson. Glade is survived by his wife Carolyn, his children Darin (Robin), Kim Christensen (Randy), Kami Galbraith (Dave), Nicole Reese (Gavin), 19 grandchildren and his brother-in-law Darwin Stevenson (Gaye). 

Funeral services will be held on Thursday, October 24, 2019. A viewing will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m., followed by a service at 11:00 a.m. at the South Jordan Utah River Ridge 7th Ward building, 10124 S. 1300 West, South Jordan, UT 84095. Interment will follow the service at the Memorial Mountain View Cemetery, 3115 E. 7800 South, Cottonwood Heights, UT 84121.

Obituary for Wayne Sabey Clarke

Wayne Sabey Clarke peacefully passed away Sunday, April 15, 2018, in the University of Utah Hospital, SLC, Utah, from a brain hemorrhage. He experienced no pain or suffering and was surrounded by his family when he quietly left his earthly adventures for all that lies ahead. 

Wayne was born on May 14, 1942, in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, to Donald A. “Dick” and Della Sabey Clarke. Raised in Magrath, Alberta, Canada, and later in Provo, Utah, Wayne was an accomplished athlete who attended Joaquin and Maeser Elementary Schools, Farrer Junior High, Provo High School, Brigham Young University on a baseball scholarship, and the University of Utah.

Wayne’s earliest career was based out of Cedar City, Utah where he honed his master electrician skills repairing jukebox and pinball machines, but his keen intellect and intrigue with how things work (including the human body) led him into the medical field. He founded Clarke Surgical Supply in Salt Lake City, where he trained doctors from all over the world how to perform a variety of surgeries using “new” stapling techniques and laparoscopic procedures, as well as “shadowing” doctors in operating rooms who were performing heart and brain surgeries to ensure they “got it right.” His incredible experiences were later documented in his autobiographical novel, Pseudo Surgeon. His passions included his family, fly fishing, hiking, astronomy, pheasant hunting, traveling, and helping anyone he encountered that needed something fixed.

Wayne married Kathryn Davis Allman on August 23, 2013. They enjoyed several years together traveling and exploring China, South Africa, France, Italy, Peru, Japan, Hawaii, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, the Danube River through Europe and New York City. He loved attending concerts and live theatre, ballroom dancing, bridge, and game nights with close friends and family. 

Wayne married Margaret Ann Sumsion on September 10, 1962. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and raised four children (and their friends) who grew up on countless Lake Powell trips, water skiing, snow skiing on the greatest snow on earth, star gazing and catching (or maybe exceeding) daily limits at Fish Lake, exploring national parks, motorhome trips throughout the western U.S. and Canada, and many other grand adventures. Wayne was also honored to have been involved with raising a full generation of young men and Scouts from the Butler 11th Ward.

Wayne is survived by his wife Kathy Davis Clarke, Cedar Hills, Utah; daughter Kelly Ann (David Kelly) Hewlett, Pleasant View, Utah; daughter Colleen (Derek) Marquis, Lindon, Utah; son Wayne Sumsion (Erin Owens) Clarke, Ladera Ranch, California; daughter Charlene (Jeff) Dawson, Heber, Utah; sister Shirley (Kay) Neilson, Creston, B.C., Canada; brothers Mark (Janet) Clarke, Orem, Utah; Lawrence (Carole) Clarke, American Fork, Utah; brother-in-law Lyle D. Patton, Orem, Utah; and sister-in-law Jacqueline Goetzinger Clarke. Wayne is also survived by Margaret Ann Sumsion, his wonderful Sumsion brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law as well as his many Clarke and Sumsion nieces and nephews and their families whom he loves dearly. 

Wayne loved the outdoors, loved life, loved Kathy, loved his family, loved his children and loved and adored his fourteen grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. He truly lived his life adhering to the scripture in Mosiah 2:17, “when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God.” Wayne will be greatly missed by everyone who is privileged to know him.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his sister Ramona (Lyle) Patton and his brother Donald S. (Jacqueline) Clarke.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, April 21, 2018 at the Berg Drawing Room Chapel, 185 E. Center Street, Provo, Utah. Friends may call at the mortuary Friday, April 20, from 6-8:00 p.m. and Saturday one hour prior to services. Interment, Provo City Cemetery. Condolences may be expressed at
