Obituary: Note:  I added what is in blue to clarify half-sibs
Theo E. Wayment, 82, passed away Sunday, August 12, 2006 after a valiant fight for survival at the McKay-Dee Hospital, Ogden.
Theo was born March 18, 1924 in Ogden, Utah, the son of Theodore Wayment and Hazel Caroline East.
He married Shirley Schaer October 22, 1946 in the Salt Lake City Temple.
Theo was a resident of Ogden, Utah for 38 years. He served in the United States Navy during World War II and was honorably discharged as Seaman First Class April 1946 from Oakland, California. He went on to work for the Ogden City Rail Road, the old Thomas Dee Hospital then completed a career as an Aircraft Mechanic at Hill Air Force Base from where he retired.
He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in which he served as a temple worker and fulfilled many various callings including two LDS Stake mission calls – one of which he served as a counselor in the Lorin Farr Stake Mission Presidency. He enjoyed working closely with the young missionaries and had a great love of this work.
Theo had a great love for the aircraft he worked on at Hill Air Force Base; for camping, fishing and especially for all the animals both domestic and in the wild. He was a farmer at heart and found great joy in growing his gardens and working on the family farm in Warren, Utah.
Surviving are wife Shirley Schaer; daughters Karen W. Allred (Larry) of West Point, Patricia W. Cunningham Hensely of West Jordan, Janet W. Tetlow (Mark) of Monroe, North Carolina; his sister Dianne W. Bullock (Carl) of North Ogden; seven grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.

Ivan Howard (Ike) East
Born 27 February 1921 West Warren, Weber, Utah
Married Bernice Mary Hammer 4 Dec 1944
No Children
Died 21 October 2007 Manila, Daggett, Utah
Buried Memorial Gardens of the Wasatch, South Ogden, Weber, Utah
Obituary:
 Ivan “Ike” East 2-27-21 ~ 10-21-07 “Gone Fishin” MANILA, Utah – Ivan “Ike” East left this world to be with his beloved wife Bernice, on Sunday, October 21, 2007. He left behind many friends and family members who will miss his independent spirit and sense of humor. Ike was born February 27, 1921 to Thomas and Cora Wright East, the fifth child of eight. Ike served with the Civilian Conservation Corp during his late teens and served honorably with the U.S. Army during World War II. After returning home from the war, he married the love of his life, Bernice Hammer, on December 4, 1944. Following many years of civil service at Hill Air Force Base, Ike and Bernice moved to Manila, Utah in 1971. Ike always called it “God’s Country”. They spent many happy years together and remained active after retirement fishing at Flaming Gorge and traveling during the winter months. Ike and Bernice loved their time with dear friends at the Eagles Trailer Park and Lodge east of Ogden Canyon. Ike and Bernice were always together and when Bernice passed away on December 31, 1988, a part of Ike went with her. Ike is survived by his brother, Alfred G. East, and his sister, Margaret E. Neely. Ike was fortunate to have a true friend in Frank Brown, a fellow Eagle member. Ike thought of Frank as a son and we know Frank thought of Ike as a father. We thank Frank from our hearts for all he did for Ike, especially the past few weeks. Preceding him in death were his parents, three sisters and two brothers. Graveside services will be held Thursday at 11 a.m. at Lindquist’s Memorial Gardens of the Wasatch, 1718 Combe Road, where Military Honors will be accorded. Friends may call at Lindquist’s Ogden Mortuary, 3408 Washington Blvd., on Thursday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Email condolences to the family at: www.lindquistmortuary.com
