LaMar Enniss

January 12, 1936 — August 11, 2023

Wilford LaMar Enniss, born 12 January 1936, passed away peacefully in his home on 11 August 2023.

LaMar was born and raised in Murray, Utah on the family farm where Big Cottonwood Creek enters the Jordan River, to Wilford B and Esther Enniss. He graduated from Granite High School in 1954. He got a degree from Salt Lake Technical Engineering Institute in specialized mechanical drafting (machine and tool design). He served in the engineering corps of the Utah National Guard.

Marrying his junior high school sweetheart Jacqueline, through their 67 years of marriage, they had three children who survive him, Ray (Madeline), Cary (Debbie), and Kimberly (Michael). His family grew to include 5 granddaughters, 2 grandsons, 14 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren.

His father, mother and younger brother Darrel preceded him in death. His 4 sisters Hazel, Zola, Maysel (Robert), and Laura survive him.

He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and is remembered as a long-time ward librarian, ward clerk, and was a temple supervisor at the Jordan River Temple.

His family and neighbors will remember his roses; many of his roses were experimental plants that he tested for J&P. He also designed the family home, drafting the plans himself.

LaMar was a retired operating engineer, and loved to share his knowledge of CAT machinery.

For over 20 years, his long-time love of sports was an avocation where he officiated softball, baseball, and basketball and managed county leagues which was an opportunity to exercise his amazing memory to know all of the rules.

For a man of small stature, he was a giant of a man and will be missed by those who knew and loved him.
