Lyndon A Mair

Lyndon A Mair…that’s me! The “A” stood for Alexander but my mom thought that putting all of the words together would make too long of a name so all I ended up with was A! No italics, no period, just A. As you can imagine, friends and not so good friends didn’t hesitate to fill in the blanks. Born: November 14, 1945 to Edna and Lindsay Mair in Heber City, Utah. Served an LDS mission to Scotland where I was able to serve my God and church for two glorious years. Married my sweetheart, Linda Joyce Mair, on April 17, 1970 and we were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on August 6, 1974. She was my joy, happiness (and royal pain) for 47 years and I will miss her dearly. My Father called me home (much to everyone’s surprise including myself) on January 30, 2017. Health issues kept me from completing everything in my bucket list but together, my wife and I were able to see more things and go more places with friends and family than one has a right to. (My motto in life? “Someone has to do it.”) My greatest accomplishment was the birth of my four children, Shane Mair (Katie), Tammy Bedford (Brian), Brock (lots of stuffed animal friends) and Jarom Mair (Emily). In addition, there were 11 grandchildren (almost a complete football team) with nine boys and two beautiful, young women. Barbara Belcher (sister) remains here on earth while I reunite with Mom, Dad, Arvella (sister), Juanita (sister) and Darwin (brother). As a family, we loved camping, fishing, boating, being Jordanelle camp hosts and cruising the Caribbean. I enjoyed creating original designs such as jewelry, glass mosaics and crocheting lawn chairs. Life here was wonderful…always full of fun, laughter and love. Before I am laid to rest, you are invited to visit with me one last time, Saturday, February 4, 2017 at the Village Boulevard Chapel, 390 East Village Boulevard, Stansbury Park, Utah from 10:00 am to 11:30 (viewing), 12:00 noon for service and my favorite part, luncheon for those who have traveled far and close friends or family. Life is good but GOD is great! Stay close to the latter and the former will continue to be true. (L Mair 2010) All my love, Lynn (1945-2017)
