Jesse Joseph Summers

July 10, 2018

1935 ~ 2018

On July 8, 2018, Jesse Joseph Summers was honorably released from his earthly mission. That mission began in 1935, when he was born to Verrel Vernon and Alene P. Summers in Montana.

He married the love of his life, Verda, for time and all eternity in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple in March of 1954.

He leaves behind his wife; and three children: Elaine (John) Horejs of Arizona; Jesse (Terrilyn) Summers of Utah; and Lamont (Annette) Summers of Idaho; 19 grandchildren; and 37 great-grandchildren. He also leaves one sister, Carol Ann (Gary) Lee; and one brother, Douglas (Carolyn) Summers.

Jess could always be found with a smile, a story, a joke and a song. His idea of heaven was someone who would listen to his stories. He would amaze his grandchildren by singing a song that included any word or topic they could throw his way.

Funeral Services will be held Friday, July 13, 2018, at 11 a.m. at the Country Oaks Ward, 2680 E. Cherry Lane, Layton, Utah. Friends may visit family Thursday, July 12, 2018 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Lindquist’s Layton Mortuary, 1867 N. Fairfield Road and Friday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the church.

Interment, Lindquist’s Memorial Park at Layton, 1867 N. Fairfield Road.
