Eugene J Izatt

March 4, 1944 — December 9, 2019

Eugene J Izatt was born on March 4, 1944 in Afton, Wyoming to Lenord C Izatt (1923-1994) and Carma Jenkins (1923-2011). He is the oldest of 4 children.

Eugene loved singing, photography, riding motorcycles, hunting, drawing, and working with electronics. He was also a licensed HAM radio operator. Eugene worked at the University of Utah in the psychology department for 30 years, building computers and contraptions for the department. He served in the Utah Air National Guard for 40 years, eventually attaining the rank of Lt. Colonel and commanding the 130th Electronics Installation Squadron. Most recently, he enjoyed searching the internet for recipes of all sorts and testing them in his spare time (for better or worse). He loved sharing his findings with all those around him as a way of giving back to the community.

He is survived by his siblings Sheldon (Corinne), Carvel (Brenda) and Karlena Deem (Richard); his 4 children Melanie Boyd (Raymond), Deborah Perkins (Jason), Michael Izatt (Julie) and Robert Izatt (Rebecca); 6 grandchildren, Nicole, Ashley, Cortney, Tyler, Kaylee, and Katie; and 4 great-grandchildren.

He married Lorna Crawford (1944-2008) in 1964. He and Lorna divorced in 1999 and he married Joan Supak in September 2000. They divorced in 2017. He was preceded in death by both of his parents, Lenord and Carma, as well as his first wife, Lorna.
