Reed Olsen was the second born son of Lawrence and Eleanor Daley Olsen. Born and raised in Spanish Fork, Utah. He was full of life and creativity. He married Vee Ann Jeffs of Provo, Utah and they were blessed with three active boys. He was a great father, leading his boys on treasure hunts, leaving "reindeer tracks" in the yard on Christmas eve, and teaching them all about the world of nature around them. He taught them to work hard and play hard too. After graduating from college he worked for the Bureau of Reclamation until retiring. Reed was an amazing artist! He was gifted in watercolor as well as oil. He illustrated a children's coloring book on water conservation. He had his own art exhibit in Spanish Fork where he was honored as artist of the Month. Reed loved people. He could be giving without thought for himself. "The Rattler" as he was called loved restoring Model T Fords and other old cars and trucks from the time period. He was a true gentleman Cowboy with all that goes along with that. He could "spin a yarn" that would have his listeners in stitches... Yes, he could make others enjoy time spent with this amazing father, brother, grandfather and friend. Reed "rode off into the sunset" Monday, September 5th, 2012. A celebration of his life was held by close family in the canyon where he loved hunting with his family. He will be greatly missed. As his brother said, "Adios Pardner. We love you and will miss your smile!" [Provo Daily Herald, Sunday, September 9, 2012]

Each month, the UGA spotlights one of our devoted volunteers to express our deep appreciation for all they do and to help you, our loyal members, become well acquainted with them. The month of July features Jim Mitchell, a 17-year UGA Course Rating Team member Jim was born on February 19, 1941 in Provo, Utah. Growing up in Provo, Jim was a three-sport athlete at Brigham Young High School. He was a standout on the baseball, football, and wresting teams. While enjoying athletics, Jim was also the student body vice-president. Jim met his wife, Regina, through his best friend, who was also the student body president. Regina was his best friend’s younger sister. When Jim came back from his LDS mission, he began to work for Regina’s brother as a rancher. While working, Regina and Jim began a relationship that is still going strong to this day. After high school, Jim attended BYU for a short time before joining the U.S. Army Reserve. Following six months of training, Jim began working for Rocky Mountain Bell Telephone Company until his reserve unit was called to active duty. While Jim’s unit served overseas in Vietnam, he was not able to follow because his brother was also in his unit. Instead, the Army stationed Jim at Fort Leonard Wood for a year. When Jim’s service ended, he went back to working at Rocky Mountain Bell in its sales and services department for 30 years. When he retired in 1999, Jim was the director of sales and service for the state of Utah. After he retired, Jim was asked by Dennis Wood to volunteer to rate courses around Utah. During his time with the UGA, Jim has rated courses and also worked a handful of tournaments. Jim does not consider himself a golfer, but his two holes-in-one say otherwise. As a hobby, Jim also enjoys repairing and assembling golf clubs. The UGA is privileged to have volunteers like Jim who take time out of their busy lives to give back to the game of golf. These volunteers allow the UGA to fulfill its mission to promote interest in the game of golf by encouraging, organizing, supporting, sponsoring, and administering golfing activities and programs.

Gary and Laura Rose

Class of 1959. Gary T. Rose. Senior Class Social Chair. Basketball, Tennis, Baseball, Tennis State Championship Singles. BYU BS Electronics & Computer Engineering 1965. USC MSEE 1968. CSULA MBA 1972. Principal Engineer Rose & Associates Consulting Engineers. Wife, Laura, 6 children: Robert, Christine, James, Cathy , Paul and Michael. Some of my fondest memories are of my days at BYH. @2010 ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Gary Truman Rose passed away on Tuesday, August 4, 2020, as a result of complications from open-heart surgery. He was surrounded by his loving family. Gary was born in Provo, Utah on November 14, 1940 to his loving and hard-working parents, James Truman Rose and Faye Snow. He was raised in Provo. When Gary was only 7 years old, his father passed away, leaving his mother to support them. As a boy, he spent many hours (incredibly boring hours, as he later put it) helping in his mother’s home beauty salon. Sports became his salvation. Gary was an incredible athlete and loved baseball, basketball, tennis, golf, and football. Gary played baseball on Little League and Pony League All-Star teams as well as at Brigham Young High School in Provo. He was also a two-time state tennis singles champion in high school and played on scholarship for the tennis team at BYU. Gary’s love of golf began as a 10-year old when he was introduced to the game by an uncle at the Timpanogos Golf Club in Provo. Gary eagerly rode his bike 3 miles to the course, earning money to rent clubs to play by shagging balls and cleaning clubs. He was an avid and very talented golfer throughout his life, winning many club, church, and company tournaments in Southern California and Utah. He especially loved to play with his family and shared many memorable rounds of golf with them, gently correcting their shanks and slices. In golf as in all other things, Gary’s virtuosity served as an example to those he loved and who loved him. Gary graduated from Brigham Young High School in the Class of 1959. He then studied electrical engineering at BYU, and later took his first job at Boeing. Gary then began to work at the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) on various power generation projects, also completing an MBA and a Master’s degree in electrical engineering during that time. Gary contributed his expertise and talents as an engineer on many generation and power transmission facilities throughout Southern California. In 1982, Gary returned to Utah as the Lead Electrical Engineer (and later, Project Manager) for the Intermountain Power Project near Delta, completing the project on time while saving tens of millions of dollars for the city of Los Angeles. Gary retired from the LADWP in 1996 after a career in public service of more than 30 years. He continued in engineering as a highly sought-after consultant in the power industry on projects in Southern California, Nevada, and Utah, receiving an award for 50 years of service in 2019. Gary met Laura Lopez while working at LADWP in Los Angeles. He knew he had found the love of his life. After a long courtship he was able to convince Laura that she had found hers, too. They married on November 6, 1982 and have enjoyed a wonderful and deeply caring relationship as soulmates. They have been loving companions to each other and are an example of true love and dedication in marriage. Gary and Laura traveled extensively over the years, visiting every continent. They were sometimes accompanied by family members throughout the US, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. They especially enjoyed summer trips to Oxford, England, in recent years, as well as regular visits to family in Utah. Gary is the beloved father to six children and—together with his wife, Laura Rose — they were the joy of his life. Gary shared his humor, his appreciation of music, art, literature, lifelong love of learning, and his joy in competition and sports with his family. Gary was a loving, active participant in his children’s and grandchildren’s lives, and they constantly felt his support and encouragement in their success and happiness. He was a deep thinker and an avid reader and was well-informed about nearly any topic you could mention. He was a rare combination of intelligence, wit, humor, and wisdom, and he patiently shared his knowledge with those around him. Gary and Laura generously supported the education of their children, blessing their lives and the lives of their families. They also proudly supported the service of several children and grandchildren as missionaries. Their generosity extended to numerous charities and causes in their communities and around the world. Gary is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and had a testimony of God and faith in the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

Utah man dies in Davis County crash
By Mariah Noble Salt Lake Tribune: May 09, 2016
One man died and another was seriously injured in a Davis County crash Sunday morning. A 75-year-old man from Clearfield died Sunday after the car he was driving hydroplaned on Interstate 15 and was hit by a motor home. The crash occurred on northbound I-15 near milepost 329 at about 9 a.m., a press release from the Utah Highway Patrol said. The man, Stephen L. Stumph, was driving a silver Toyota Camry in the rain. There was standing water on the roadway, and, according to the news release, Stumph was traveling too fast for the weather conditions and lost control of the vehicle. His car sideswiped a Hyundai Elantra on the right, which then pushed the Camry back to the left directly into the path of a 37-foot motor home. According to the press release, the motor home struck the Camry "squarely" on the driver's door. Stumph died at the scene, and his male passenger was transported via helicopter to the University of Utah Hospital with serious injuries, the press release states. The occupants of the motor home were transported to the hospital by ambulance with minor injuries, and no one in the Elantra was injured. Everyone involved in the crash, caused by speed and weather conditions, was wearing a seat belt, the news release added. @May2016 ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Stephen Lynn Stumph, 1941–2016. It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our dear Husband, Father, Brother and Friend.

He was born January 26, 1941 to Martha Lena Crews and Joseph Kitrell Stumph in Springville, Utah. He married the love of his life, Gayla Dee Williamson in the Manti Temple on June 21, 1961. He graduated from Brigham Young High School in the Class of 1959, and earned a degree in Physics from BYU, along with his Master’s Degree from Georgia Tech.
