"I'm happy to be alive and here!" ~ ~ ~ ~ A NOTE FROM JIM'S WIFE, APRIL 2020:

Dear BY High, Jim Petty, Class of 66, passed away on his 48th wedding anniversary, March 31, 2020. He had fought the good fight since receiving his miraculous kidney transplant on August 16, 2019 that unfortunately left him severely compromised. After nearly 7 months in a variety of healthcare facilities, he was able to briefly come home for two weeks. What a gift! He then returned to the University of Utah Hospital for the final two weeks of his life where his immuno-suppressed body succumbed to Influenza A, pneumonia, septicemia and multiple infections in that CoronaVirus battle ground. How the staff loved his quick wit and gentle kind nature. He was true blue to the end as he explained to the Red Zone why he wore a Brigham Young University sweatshirt: “l am honoring the man who started the University of Utah.” Then when asked how he felt just prior to going on the ventilator, the last thing he said was classic Jim: “I feel great!” And he does now, for sure! Sincerely yours, Mary E Petty
~ ~ ~ ~ HIS FATHER'S OBITUARY: April 22, 2015 Dr. Robert W. Petty, 1924~2015. Dr. Robert W. Petty passed away April 18, 2015 at the Central Utah Veterans Home in Payson, Utah. He was born April 12, 1924 in Chicago, Illinois to Dr. Russell B. and Josephine Volker Petty. His young, gentle mother, Josephine died when he was only 12 years old. Later he was devoted to his second mother, Lucile O. Benson Petty. Robert was the oldest of eight children and strived to watch over them and to be a good example. On July 10, 1946 he was sealed in marriage to his sweetheart, Medalou Winter who passed away Sept. 21, 2011. He felt that caring for her was his greatest responsibility. Although his abilities had diminished, his only concern was to be here until her last day. He never stopped worrying for her and asking about her. Robert loved his Savior, Jesus Christ and served Him faithfully for many years through his work as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and his work as a medical doctor. As a young man he served in the Navy and received the World War II Victory Medal and the Korean Service Medal. In his professional life, he was an ophthalmologist with a practice in Provo. He loved the delicacy of his work and the precision it demanded, but he loved his patients more. He graciously received everything from garden vegetables to art work as thanks and payment. In the last years that he practiced medicine, he and Medalou lived in Saudi Arabia where he worked in the King Faisal Research and Specialist Hospital. There he respectfully treated everyone from the King to the poorest desert dwellers. Throughout his life, he was happy to serve in any church calling. Later, he and his eternal companion served temple missions fulfilling his life-long desire. Dr. Bob, as he was called in the last years, was always a gentleman and was concerned for others. Even in the last months, as his mind was clouded, he always offered his help and thanked all around him for every small kindness. He was a loving, considerate man who touched our lives for good. He was reunited with his wife, Medalou; infant daughter, Kathleen; parents; sister, Ruth Wright and an infant brother, Guy. He will be remembered by his children: James (Mary) Petty, Cynthia (Tom) Barkume, Douglas (Heidi) Petty, Janice (Steve) Bagley and Deborah (Brad) Nielsen; siblings: Elma Ray, Carolyn Strong, Jo Anne (Ray) Smith, Louise (Bob) Crowley, Richard (Joan) Petty and Lorraine (Jim) Pallo; 18 grandchildren; 34 great-grandchildren and many others. His family is grateful for the tender care he was given by Bristol Hospice and the Veterans Home and gives a special thanks to the veterans and staff for the respectful farewell. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, April 25, 2015 at the Berg Drawing Room Chapel, 185 East Center Street, Provo. Friends may call at the mortuary, Friday from 6-8:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:45-10:45 a.m. prior to services. Interment will be at East Lawn Memorial Hills Cemetery.
