Our beloved father and grandfather, Dale Norton Minson, passed away on Thursday, July 13, 2023, in his home in Sandy, Utah. He was born on September 22, 1930, to Joseph and Ana Minson in Ogden, Utah. He married Shirlee Sieverts on August 15, 1948 in the Salt Lake Temple and lived the first part of their married life in Clovis, NM on the Air Force military base. When they returned to SLC, he acquired a Degree in Architecture from the University of Utah and went onto design many prominent businesses, sports facilities, government buildings and personal homes.
He and Shirlee focused on raising four children (the oldest, Marci, having Williams Syndrome) and shared a life of trips to Lake Powel, skiing, tennis, games, painting and music! (He was an expert at the “Gut Bucket.”) He also loved the outdoors and built a cabin in the Teton Valley which the family frequented often and still enjoys today.
In February 1999 – April 2001, he served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as the presiding architect for the Fresno Temple. When he returned, he had retired from architecture and focused his time on his biggest passion, painting. He received many awards for his paintings and contributions such as “Sandy City Outstanding Citizen Contribution” (2004) and the Key to Sandy City (2009). Much of his work is in Sandy City Hall and in all his friends and neighbor's homes.
He is survived by three of his children, Miles (& Jen) Minson, Lori (& Bruce) Minson Logan and Clark Minson; his four grandchildren, Kimber Logan, Sarah Logan, Joe Minson and Leilani Minson. We will all miss him dearly and the love and caring he showed us all through the years.
A celebration of life will be held Saturday, October 14, 2023. at the Pinecrest LDS Chapel; 2080 E. Pinecrest Lane, Sandy, Utah @ 10:00 am. Dale’s ashes will be placed next to Shirlee and Marci’s graves at Elysian Gardens.
The family wishes to thank Serenicare, and all of Dale’s devoted friends and church members for taking such wonderful care of Dale these past years. We are eternally grateful for your kindness, love and service to him.
