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
