Lynn Fiack, 86, passed away at his home in Cedar City on June 1, 2011. Lynn was born on November 27, 1924, in Price, Utah, to Sheridan and Josephine Jones Fiack. He spent his early childhood in Price, and remembered well those difficult years during the Great Depression. Later, his fathers employment required the family to relocate to several other rural Utah communities, including Moab, Monticello, and Cedar City. When Lynn turned 18, the country was in the midst of World War II, and he was called to serve in the U.S. Navy. Lynn was assigned with the 533rd on the Admiralty Islands in the Pacific, and served there from 1943 to 1946. Lynn married Nelda Thayne on December 10, 1950, and they were the parents of five children: Jodie Lynn, Marsha, Toni, Sharla, and Lisa. Three of their children died in infancy. Lynn was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in 1955, and he served as a Home Teacher and Ward Clerk in the 10th Ward in Cedar City. Lynn was devoted to Nelda. They met the challenges of life as a team, and provided a great example to their posterity. They chose to face life with optimism and enjoyed every moment of their lives together until Neldas death in 1992. They were sealed together in the LDS St. George Temple in 1993. Lynn worked hard to support his family as a heavy equipment operator, eventually accepting a position as the Supervisor for the Iron County Road Department until his retirement in 1987 after 37 years in public service. Lynn always found time to enjoy life. He was an avid fly fisherman and hunter. He and Nelda enjoyed square dancing and traveling in their RV. They were dedicated parents and doting grandparents. Lynn also devoted a great deal of time to reading and learning about the world around him. He devoured books about history and science and had nearly perfect recall of everything he had ever read. Later in life, Lynn experienced several health challenges, but he characteristically moved forward without complaint. His daughters, sons-in-law, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren will remember him as a great friend and be forever strengthened by his devotion to family and the quiet lessons he taught as he lived his life. Lynn is survived by his daughters, Toni Fiack Heaton (Al) of Moab, and Sharla Fiack Campbell (Kim) of St. George. His grandchildren include Jamie Heaton Larsen (Chuck), Jocelyn Campbell Allan (Warde), Ember Heaton Merriam (Cache), Erin Campbell, and Randon Campbell. Lynn is also survived by a sister, Shirley Fiack Haycock (Cedar City). Lynn was preceded in death by his parents, his beloved Nelda, a son Jodie, daughters Marsha and Lisa, and two siblings, Joyce Fiack Leigh and Boyd Fiack.
