Weston Lavone Mecham

Our beloved husband, father and grandfather, Weston Lavone Mecham, 82, died peacefully in Mesa, Arizona on July 4, 2014. He was born November 21, 1931 near the Portneuf River in Bannock County, Idaho to Walter L. and Pearl Ivie Mecham. He married his wife Muriel Mecham on December 23, 1971 in Elko, Nevada. Weston served honorably in the United States Marine Corps as a military guard. He retired from the Department of Defense Tooele Army Depot after 33 years of service. Weston was a machinist and was known by his family and friends as a jack-of-all-trades. He served as a scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts of America and was very active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where he was a high priest, taught Sunday School, and served as a stake and ward missionary and leader. One of his greatest accomplishments of his life was his 22 years of missionary service for his church. Weston loved fishing and travelling the back roads. He loved whittling and was a tinker extraordinaire. He received an honorable mention in the Guinness Book of World Records for whittling the world's smallest doll with moving parts. Weston was a family man and had a deep love for his family, especially for his wife, kids and grandkids. Weston and Muriel had one of those loves that everyone hopes to find, remaining true and loving soul mates for 42 ½ years. He had a gift of love that he shared with everyone and everyone loved Weston. He was a problem solver and inventor and always willing to help anyone with a listening ear or through service. He will always be loved and remembered for his big heart and his humor. He will truly be missed. Weston is survived by his wife, Muriel; his children Lynn (Julie) Mecham, Jennae Sevvom, and Pat (Jody) Mecham; his sister, Iola Peck; eight grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.
