Raynold Layton Dennett, age 78, passed away on September 25, 2013. His selfless character, candid demeanor and blunt analysis of all things controversial will be uniquely missed by the many who knew, loved, worked and served with him. Raynold passed away while expending some of his limitless energy working in his yard- a passion of his life. Raynold was born to Leighton Curly Dennett and Pauling Button on December 17, 1934. He lived almost his entire life in Cedar City; though he spent his early years in Springdale and was briefly in Las Vegas. Raynold married Nancie Morris on September 15, 1954 in Beaver, Utah. They were sealed in the St. George Temple on January 27, 1977. Raynold and Nancie are the parents of 3 sons- Eric, Curtis and Ryan. Raynold was always happiest when he was serving by helping others. He did this formally in many church callings, including as a Bishop of a married SUU Ward; but he was probably most influential to both those he knew and strangers alike as he found unheralded ways to bless lives and lift others. His sometimes gruff exterior served only to contain one of the biggest and most giving hearts that ever beat. Raynold is survived by his wife of 59 years, Nancie, his sons Eric (Lori) of Cedar City and Ryan (Ginger) of Las Vegas. He was preceded in death by a son Curtis, his parents Curly and Pauline Dennett, his sister Joyce Christensen and brother Clark Dennett. Raynold loved his 10 grandchildren and they loved him. Nathan, Stephen, Sterling, Michael and Walker (Eric & Lori); Brooks, Ashley and Courtney (Curtis & Mary); Miranda and Parker (Ryan & Ginger). Along with 4 great-grandchildren.
