We, the family of LaMar Joseph Lister, are sad to announce his death, which occurred at home in Parowan, Utah, on June 15, 2019. Dad is survived by his wife Gayle and all seven of us children, which is surprising due to our wildness and occasional disrespect for authority, including his. We are Jessica (Richard) Musselman, Richelle (Eddie) Graf, Jonathan “Caleb” Lister, Cheyanne (Stephen) Ward, Cherilynn (Gene) Ruiter, Jacob (Malorey) Lister, and Kade Lister. Despite much speculation, we really don’t know who the favorite child was.

There are 12 grandchildren scattered in Nevada, Utah, Massachusetts, and Texas. He is also survived by his siblings Larry (Pat) Lister, Sara (Tony) Valdez, and Lyle (Toni) Lister. We believe dad was met in heaven by his parents, Jesse and Shirley Rappleye Lister and grandson, Kaysen.

Our parents were high school sweethearts and have been married for 48 years. They've made homes in Paragonah and Parowan, Utah, as well as Henderson and Tonopah, Nevada. He worked away from home a lot, including at the Nevada Test Site and the states of Washington and Alaska. Dad held many various positions in the LDS church throughout his life, including scout and youth leader.

While Dad was a carpenter by trade, he was many things to many people. He also filled the roles of advisor, problem-solver, teacher, fishing and hunting guide, and example; although sometimes he was an example of what not to do. (Do not alter the God-given branch placement of your fresh Christmas tree with a drill.)

Dad tackled life, including the last few years, by making light of serious things. To the other patients at the cancer center the day he arrived for treatment in a hazmat suit - we are sorry. We also apologize to the drivers on the interstate the day he bought the giant Chewbacca head mask and stuck his head out the window at every car we passed. We basically just apologize for anytime dad was out in public. We tried.

Dad will be accepting visitors for a viewing on Friday, June 21, from 6-8pm at the LDS church at 59 South 100 West in Parowan and again on June 22 from 10am - 11:30am on Saturday. Funeral will start at noon. Burial will take place at the Paragonah Cemetery, under the direction of Affordable Funeral Services. (435-586-3456)

Dad did request if anyone wants to bring "funeral potatoes" that you please add ham.

The entire family would like to express sincere thanks to the many friends and family who came to visit. We also thank the Intermountain Healthcare Oncology, Home Health, and Hospice staff from Cedar City.
