BIOGRAPHY: HAROLD BAKER JONES May 10, 1914 - February 4, 2001 I was born in Monticello, San Juan County, Utah on May 10, 1914 to John Henry “Bud” and Alice Baker Jones. I was the third of seven children born to this good, hard-working couple. Senona “Nona,” Myrl, Hilda, Elaine, Vera and Norma Jean are my siblings. My father was in the cattle and farming business while we lived in Monticello. He was also called to serve two missions for the Church, one in the Central States and one in the Eastern States. My mother worked as a custodian at our school to help support him and the family while he was gone. When I was ten years old we moved from Monticello due to the depression and the need for employment. We settled in Price, Utah where Dad worked on a dairy farm and in the coal mines. From my father I learned to work hard, milking cows in the winter and herding them in the summer. I worked as a water-boy for a construction company as they built new roads and bridges in the area. I never was without a job and learned the value of the dollar. After graduating from Carbon County High School in 1932 I continued my education at BYU where I met my future wife, Fay Knight. I courted Fay for several months while living in Provo and when she moved to Salt Lake City to attend Henagar’s Business School I would hitch a ride to visit her. When our relationship became serious, Fay announced that she would not marry unless it was in the Temple. So when I returned home to Price I demonstrated to my bishop that I was worthy to be ordained as an Elder. I earned around $65.00 a month working on a government project and spent the first month’s wages to buy a ring for Fay. One night in September we drove up toward Provo canyon where I planned to have a romantic place to give her the diamond ring I purchased. We didn’t get as far up toward the canyon as I had planned because I simply could not wait that long, so I pulled off the road and surprised her with the ring. We were married in the Salt Lake Temple on November 23, 1934. We lived in the basement of my folks home in Martin where my mother ran a boarding house for railroad workers. A month later we found a place to rent for $13.00 a month. Fay helped my mother while I worked at the mine at Castle Gate. When there was no longer work available in Martin we moved to Provo. I worked for the Cherry Hill Dairy delivering milk while I continued my education in business. I would begin my day by harnessing my horse for the milk wagon at 2:00 A.M. I then delivered 27 cases of milk to the northeast part of Provo. There wasn’t much future to look forward to in this job but it was a good experience and helped me while I was going to school. Later I landed a job at Bennett Glass and Paint Company where I learned my life’s vocation. In 1938 I began my own paint and glass business with a partner, Alvin W. Jeffs. Our company was located at 348 West Center in Provo and was called “Utah Valley Glass & Paint.” Four years later we moved to 51 North University Avenue and changed our name to “Jeffs & Jones.” This catchy name stayed with my company even after 18 years when I bought my partner’s portion of the business and changed the name to “Jones Paint & Glass.” I then purchased a building at 170 North 100 West which has been the location of the Paint store since. My business continued to grow as we were careful in our expenses and put all extra money we earned back into the company. We eventually purchased additional property to house the glass portion of the business, first on South University Avenue, then at 1240 West Center. I give credit to the Lord and the support of my family for my success. I appreciate my two sons Kenneth and Merlynn and also my son-in-law, Don Butler for their contribution to the growth of our company. Jones Paint and glass provides work for many individuals in our Provo location and at our branches in American Fork, Cedar City, St. George, Vernal and Roosevelt. 1 While working very hard to establish my business I was called to serve in the Church as scoutmaster. I served eleven years earning my own Eagle award and later the Silver and Bronze Palm awards. During this time, with the help of one of my fellow ward members, I restored an old school bus and took my scouts on many trips in Southern Utah and once to Yellowstone National Park. For my service in scouting I was later presented with the Silver Beaver award. This was just the beginning of a life-long commitment to service in the Church. I was a shy young man who made it a point to come late to meetings so I wouldn’t be called upon to pray. But after serving as a Bishop in two wards, as a high councilor, as a counselor in the Utah stake presidency then as President of the Provo Stake I felt comfortable not only in praying but in giving countless talks. By the time I was set apart as a patriarch in the Provo Utah Stake I was prepared to know and feel the Spirit as I communicated with our Heavenly Father. I had many opportunities to serve my community. I served as Vice-Chairman of the Deseret Industries, the BYU Alumni board, the Kiwanis Club of Provo and of the Chamber of Commerce, also I was a member of the Utah Valley Hospital board. While serving as stake president I had the great challenge of being in charge of a four-stake welfare cannery. With the help of many volunteers it became very successful. I have always enjoyed hunting and fishing with my boys and I love to attend BYU basketball and football games. My wife was very patient with me as I never missed a game then often returned home to watch it over again on television. I could not be successful in any endeavor without the help of my good wife. She has polished the rough stone she agreed to marry long ago and has supported me in every business venture and church assignment. She takes good care of our home and has taught our children well. I give the Lord credit if I have done anything commendable in my life. I have been blessed with good health and financial security along with a loving companion and obedient children. I hope and pray that my posterity will trust in the Lord as I have. I often quote the scripture which has given me the most direction in my life from Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and learn not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he will direct thy paths. – Familysearch.org

OBITUARY: Dean Leonard Gustavson died peacefully at home on September 19, 2011 in the arms of his wife, Vonda (married December 2008). Dean's family had the pleasure of a last weekend with him before his passing. Dean was born to loving parents, Leona and Ernest Gustavson, on June 26, 1924 in Salt Lake City, Utah. On April 28, 1944, Dean married his lovely bride, Barbara Louise Knight, in the midst of the terrible conflict of World War II; their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on August 29, 1944. At just nineteen years old, Dean was commissioned in the Army Air Corps as a B-17 and B-24 pilot. He flew dozens of weather reconnaissance missions over the treacherous North Atlantic. He also flew Mosquitos, P-51s and P-38s in the European Theatre. Barbara was his steadfast and loving support on the home front as they faced repeated heart-wrenching separations, never knowing his fate from day-to-day as that War raged on. Following the War, Dean went to Berkeley on the GI Bill and, with Barbara's support, obtained a graduate degree in architecture. Dean had a phenomenal architectural career as the lead designer for Gustavson Associates - a leading architectural firm in the nation. In the early 1960's, he worked with political and religious leaders to envision the Second Century Plan, elements of which continue to be implemented in the redesign of the Utah State capital city. Dean's design work - which included the University of Utah Engineering Center, many commercial office buildings and schools, private homes, and the 1970's redesign of the University of Utah Medical Center hospital - won numerous local and national awards, including a national design award named in his honor. Dean's professional qualifications and vision led to the honor of becoming a Fellow in the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in 1970. About the same time, he became President of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) during which time NCARB, under his leadership, pioneered nationwide reciprocity of teaching, testing and licensure standards. In 1960, Dean designed his glass and steel Holladay home, which won a national design award. Here, Dean and Barbara raised their children: Mark, Lisa, and Clint. Dean was a devoted husband and enjoyed a sixty-three-year-long love affair with his beautiful and loving bride, Barbara. Together, they were devoted parents, took their children on many fabulous vacations around the world, and offered their children every imaginable cultural and educational opportunity. Dean encouraged his children to dream big and to back their dreams with hard work. Growing up with Dad was all about Possibility. In 1986, Dean (with the help of his son, Clint) restored a World-War II vintage Stearman Biplane to better-than-museum condition and, well into his 80's, Dean could be seen flying aerobatics over the skies of Southern Utah. A strong interest in astronomy led him to design and build an observatory in the backyard of his Holladay home where he spent many years peering at, and photographing, planets and deep-space objects. In the late 1980's, Dean designed a stunning vertically-sculpted home in St. George, where he and Barbara spent their retirement years. At the same time, his architectural consulting firm managed the design and redevelopment of the UC Berkeley and UC Davis campuses. Dean and Barbara were heartbroken at the death of their son, Clint, in 1998 - they, and their children and family endured this tragedy with dignity and faith in Jesus Christ and in the eternality of all close relationships. Dean was exquisitely attentive to his sweet and patient Barbara through her long, final illness, leaving no stone unturned in her unceasing care. Following Barbara's death in 2007, Dean (at age eighty-four) had the marvelous good fortune to meet and marry his second wife, Vonda Williams, with whom he enjoyed fabulous vacations and a deeply loving marriage. Dean and Vonda were, and are, a blessing to each other. Dean daily expressed gratitude to Vonda for the joy of their marriage and for her devotion to him in his brief final illness. Dean approached his death with the fighting spirit which characterized his entire life. He loved life, could not imagine giving up and, within two days of his passing, was making plans for Christmas with Vonda, his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Dean is preceded in death by his first wife, Barbara, and their son, Clint. He is also pre-deceased by his sisters, Alice (Bob, deceased) and Lila (Parker), his sister-in-law, Rae, and her husband, Clifford (Barbara's brother). He is survived by his wife, Vonda, his children, Lisa, Mark (Janet) and by his grandchildren, Jenny (and her son, Julien), Steve (his wife, Candice and son, "little" Parker), Eric (and his wife, Holly), his sister, Elsie (Keith, deceased), his much-treasured brother-in-law, "big" Parker, and by several nieces and nephews as well as many friends, both in Salt Lake and in St. George. We, his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, wish to express our love and gratitude to Dean for showing the way toward a life of optimism, love and joy. The sky was, and is, the limit for Dean. Dear Husband, Daddy and Grandpa, fly high until we meet again. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, September 24, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at Larkin Sunset Gardens Mortuary, 1950 East Dimple Dell Road (10600 South), Sandy, Utah. There will be a brief visiting time from 1:30 to 2:00 p.m. prior to the services at the mortuary. Interment will take place in the Larkin Sunset Gardens Cemetery.

OBITUARY: The Spectrum 4 December 2007
Barbara Gustavson
Barbara Louise Knight Gustavson, age 82, died peacefully at home in the loving presence of her family on Nov. 27, 2007, in  St. George, Utah. She triumphed over Parkinson's Disease with grace and bravery.
Barbara was born Feb. 8, 1925 in Huntington, CA, the daughter of Lucius Clifford and Irma Knight. She graduated from East High School in 1942 and attended the University of Utah where she studied English literature. She met her husband, Dean, on a blind date in 1942 and it was "love at first sight." They married on April 28, 1944 in Albuquerque, NM, in the Base Chapel in a military ceremony attended by family and fellow officer pilots in the midst of the great conflict of World War II. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. As a nineteen-year-old bride, Barbara accompanied her husband to Army Air Force bases across the United States, saying goodbye six times before he went overseas to fly B-17s and B-24s as a combat pilot. She was brave and stalwart in her support of him throughout the war.  Barbara was a guide and companion to her husband in his architectural practice and managed the financial details for many years. Ever at Dean's side, Barbara traveled with him throughout the United States, Europe, Canada and Mexico. They raised three beloved children, Mark Steven (Janet), Lisa Ann and Clint Knight (deceased). Barbara adored her grandchildren, Eric (Holly), Steve (Candice), and Jennifer Gustavson and her baby son, Julien Knight Frazier - Barbara's first great-grandchild. Barbara's dear brother, Clifford Wallace Knight, preceded her in death. She is survived by her brother's wife, Rae Knight, and by Dean's sisters, Alice (Bob, deceased), Lila (Parker) and Elsie (Keith, deceased) as well as many nephews and nieces and by her lifelong friend, Vey Schantz.  Barbara was an early champion of the rights of women (especially to get a college education) and instilled in her children and grandchildren a strong social conscience. Barbara was a great supporter of her children and their interests. She accompanied her son, Mark, in picking up a vintage 1960 Thunderbird (which matched her own treasured T-Bird) and shared a love of cats and the piano with her daughter, Lisa. She delighted in her son Clint's eccentricity and creative writing talents and deeply mourned his death in 1998.  Barbara doted on her grandchildren and, throughout their childhoods, played badminton, read to them and baked delectable treats. Beginning in1948 until her death, she provided a home for a total of sixteen rescued cats and three German Shepherds. She loved the music of Bach, Cole Porter and Gershwin and raised her children on Richard Rogers show tunes. She had a lovely singing voice and could instantly harmonize any melody. Barbara was an avid reader and cherished the sophisticated use of the English language, teaching her children "A Child's Garden of Verses" from the time they could speak. She taught cultural refinement lessons in Relief Society for many years. Barbara was the essence of elegance, turning heads with her beauty and style. She collected fine china, porcelains and objets d'art from around the world.  The loss of our kind, patient and loving wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and friend is beyond measure. Barbara was, and is, a gentle spirit. Through the loving kindness of our Savior, our joyful association with Barbara will continue throughout the eternities. She now graces the lives of family and pets who preceded her in death; her loss for those left to mourn is incalculable.  The family wishes to thank the many caregivers and friends who lovingly assisted Barbara through her difficult struggle with Parkinson's Disease, including Valerie Kahanu, Wendy Reber, and Rachel Hickey, among many others. We also wish to thank Southern Utah Hospice, especially Tammy Holloway and Karen Amundsen, who provided comfort and support to Barbara in her transition to immortality.  Funeral services will be held Tuesday, December 4, 2007, at 12:00 p.m. at the Spilsbury Mortuary Chapel, 110 S. Bluff St., St. George. There will be a viewing held from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. prior to services at the Mortuary. There will also be funeral services held on Saturday, Dec. 8, 2007, at 2:00 p.m. at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 East 10600 South in Sandy, UT. There will be a viewing from 12:30 to 1:45 p.m. prior to servi-ces at the Sunset Gardens. Interment will take place at Larkin Sunset Gardens Cemetery.  Arrangements are made under the direction of Spilsbury Mortuary, St. George, UT 673-2454.  In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to Pet Samaritan Fund in Salt Lake City, UT.

Hello -
I just wanted to comment about the Rev. Aaron Helms in the Helms Family Cemetery. The headstone is quite new apparently. His name was actually Aaron Shelby Helms, as was his son. He is listed as Aaron Shelby in the church records as well. He rarely used his full name, preferring to use initials rather than his first or middle name. I am one of his g-g-g-grandchildren and this was written in a family bible. His son Aaron was the same way, as was my grandfather, Shelby Lockard Helms (He was named for his grandfather). They listed themselves as A.S. or S.L. Helms, rarely, if ever, using their full names.
I don't know who came up with the Sims for a middle name. I think it had something to do with Isophanie Simms who married into the family, - but I can' t be sure. However, I do know that his middle name was Shelby because many of his progeny carry that name in his honor. In addition, my g-grandmother, Eugenia Brewer Helms (a/k/a Fanny J) who was married to Aaron Shelby Helms, knew them all well, and told my mother the same thing - that their middle name was Shelby and not Sims.
I don't know who put the gravestone up with the Sims name on it, but it is the wrong name. Just thought you might want to know.
