Ashworth (Bette Jean Brailsford, BYH Class of 1945); Faye Ashworth (George) Maxwell; and Gayle Ashworth Lloyd; Don Ashworth (Julie) and Clint P. Ashworth (BYH Class of 1946) (Rachel). ~ ~ ~ ~ BYU 1950. Licensed nuclear engineer. "I worked most of my 43-year career in advanced energy, 21 years of it as supervising engineer over advanced engineering at a large San Francisco-based energy company. We built and operated for 1,000 hours a 100-kilowatt pilot fuel cell power plant with financial support from the Electric Power Research Institute. The company also operated for several years a fuel cell power plant of a different type that supplied power to San Francisco's city offices. I evaluated, with our natural gas vice president, an opportunity to take the company into the hydrogen pipeline business. We did conception work and evaluations of fuel cells and hydrogen many times. Based on experience, the technical and economic challenges and problems of creating a viable system of hydrogen production, delivery, vehicle storage, fuel cell vehicle propulsion and safety are formidable. They are individually unsolved and collectively may be unsolvable without as-yet-unknown major breakthroughs. Another big clincher against this system being viable any time soon is the false justification for it. It is claimed to replace our dependence on fossil fuels. But fossil fuels are currently the only source of hydrogen that might possibly make the system viable. Making nonfossil-fuel-based hydrogen sources comparably attractive is as unsolved and collectively unsolvable as the hydrogen vehicle system itself. I think the hydrogen vehicle idea is a pipe dream that has to be played out for political reasons alone." ~ ~ Clinton Paul Ashworth (@March7, 2003) ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Clinton Paul Ashworth, 80, passed away Sunday, May 17, 2009, due to complications of cancer.

HIS FATHER: Lloyd L. Cullimore (1895-1986). Mayor of Provo, Utah, 1959-1961. Lloyd L. Cullimore, M.D., was born on December 10, 1895 in Lindon, Utah, to Albert and Luella Keetch Cullimore. A descendent of English immigrants to Utah, Cullimore grew up on a farm near Lindon. He served a LDS mission in the Southern States and earned a B.S. degree at the University of Utah. He married Odessa Allred in 1920 in the Salt Lake Temple. After graduating from George Washington University Medical School in Washington, D.C. in 1925, Cullimore said he had "about $2 and two degrees." He had a great offer to be in a lucrative medical partnership in Washington, D.C., but he turned down what he called a "gold mine" to return to the West to raise his family. Under the supervision of Dr. Theodore B. Beatty of the Utah State Health Department, Dr. Cullimore was assigned to the Shepherd-Towner Infancy Maternal Welfare Program. He moved to Provo in that capacity, but in the summer of 1927 he taught his first class at BYU. In January 1928 he opened his private practice in Provo, where he became a well-known general practitioner and made numerous contributions to the medical profession and most importantly, his patients. For many years he was city physician. At BYU he was a founder of the student health program. He donated his time to see BYU students, first at the Lower Campus and then later at the McDonald Health Center. He taught health classes and served as physician for several athletic teams. He continued to serve BYU until 1949, when his private practice in Provo demanded more of his time. He delivered many babies at Crane Maternity Home before Utah Valley Hospital began. He went East to help negotiate funding for the new community hospital which opened in 1939. The first baby born at Utah Valley Hospital was delivered by Dr. Lloyd L. Cullimore. Dr. Cullimore was a key figure in the start of the Utah County alcohol rehabilitation program, which initially was rather controversial. Some local LDS bishops felt the center was unneeded and that Cullimore was going against his own faith. Cullimore explained in a newspaper article that his goal was to help people, regardless of their religion. Journalist Theron H. Luke called Dr. Cullimore "the last of a vanishing breed--the old-time family doctor." He referred to Cullimore making house calls, even if necessary in the middle of the night. He charged little for his medical services and would waive the fee for those unable to pay. He became a person's friend as well as his doctor. Cullimore's goal to help others continued to guide him as a civil servant. When Dr. Stewart Grow first approached him about running for the city council, Cullimore did not think he was serious. But he did run and was elected in the fall of 1957. In 1959 the council chose him to be mayor. He admitted in an interview that his medical practice was "practically ruined" by his political involvement. He received only $50 per month as mayor, while his office expenses continued. During Cullimore's administration, he had to deal with political controversies that sometimes became quite heated. For example, a sales tax created resentment against Provo from residents in other Utah County communities. A strike by municipal power plant workers influenced some people to consider getting city power from Utah Power and Light. There was tension between BYU and the city government. But probably the most bitter conflict was the movement to repeal the city council-manager charter that had been implemented in January 1956. The "vile things that were said and done" over this issue was what distressed Cullimore the most. He and a city manager received vicious and threatening phone calls. He tried to ignore these personal attacks and act friendly toward political enemies. In spite of such problems during his civic service, he enjoyed his time in office, for he met many wonderful people and had the opportunity to represent the city overseas. While mayor, Cullimore was appointed to the national civic committee of the "People-to-People Program" organized by former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. He was reappointed to the committee in 1962. Cullimore's contributions also included twice being president of the Provo Chamber of Commerce, and serving in the LDS church as a teacher, Sunday School superintendent, bishop's counselor, and stake high councilman. He was a member of Rotary International and was on the board of directors for Utah Technical College in Provo. His wife Odessa was noted for her work in church callings, the Women's Division of the Provo Chamber of Commerce, and the Utah Legislature. For their many years of service, the Cullimores were honored with the Utah-Idaho District Sertoma International Service to Mankind Award for 1977-1978. When Dr. Cullimore died on September 24, 1986 at age 90, Provo lost one of it's most distinguished citizens. He was buried in the Provo City Cemetery. In 1990 his daughter, Mrs. Eugene (Georgia Cullimore) Faux still lived in Provo and his grandson, Gregory Faux, lived at the Cullimore family home at 740 North 300 East. Their children included four daughters and one son: Georgia Cullimore, Karma Jean Cullimore [BYH Class of 1942], Lloyd L. Cullimore [BYH Class of 1946], Kathleen Cullimore [BYH Class of 1948~Honorary], and Anne Cullimore (Decker). [Originally published in David M.

From August 1991 - August 1993, Bruce and Marie served as service missionaries in the Utah Salt Lake City Granite Park Mission. At her passing, Marie would ask all those who love her to celebrate her life, rather than mourn her death, by giving Christ-like service to those around them - a pattern Marie exemplified always.
