Lawrence Frandsen

Panguitch, Utah

Lawrence Wayne Frandsen, 87, of Panguitch, passed peacefully into the loving arms of his Heavenly Father and eternal sweetheart, Margaret, surrounded by his loving family, January 14, 2014 in Panguitch. He was born August 18, 1926 in Widstoe to George Randolph and Ida Floy Anderson Frandsen. He married Margaret Sevy June 11, 1947 in Fredonia, AZ. The marriage was later solemnized in the St. George Temple. She preceded him in death September 22, 2009.

Dad’s greatest blessing was his family. He spent most of his life following and supporting his family in all their endeavors. Dad and Mom loved to watch their children and grandchildren participate in sports and made each one feel that they were their #1 fan. Dad loved the deer hunt and the family association that it brought. He had a great love for his country and served in the military during World War II. He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served faithfully on the Church farm, in the Elder’s Quorum, and later he and Mom served together in the library. Dad took great pride in owning and operating his own businesses, whether it be trucking, delivering coal, logging, or operating the sawmill. His example of hard work and integrity will forever serve his family.

He is survived by his children: Lloyd (Suzanne) Frandsen, Taylorsville; Elden (Pam) Frandsen, Panguitch; Deanna (Stephen) Hatch, Scipio; Debora (Allan) Orton, Price; Kevin (Debbie) Frandsen, Panguitch; and Rodney (Robyn) Frandsen, Parowan; Kami (Brian) Groves, West Jordan; 26 grandchildren, 43 great-grandchildren with two more expected in March, sister-in-law, Betty Frandsen, Panguitch.

He is also preceded in death by his parents; granddaughter, Heidi Hatch; siblings: Randolph (Ky), Gene, Virginia, George, Larry, Ruby, Pearl, Joan, Keith and Lloyd.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at 12:00 Noon in the Panguitch 2nd Ward, 200 North 400 East, where friends may call from 10:00 - 11:30 a.m. Burial will be in the Panguitch Cemetery with military rites by Panguitch American Legion Post #25. Funeral Directors: Magleby Mortuary, Richfield, Salina and Manti.

Dear Frandsen Family,
We were saddened to read about the passing of your dad. He was such a great man, friend and neighbor. It is hard to lose both of your parents. Theirs was a great generation, one that cannot be replaced. We are so blessed to have the knowledge that we have that we can be together again. What a blessing to also know that your mom and dad are so happy to be together again. What great memories that you have as a family. Please know that we are thinking of you at this time. Love, Bruce & Sue

Dear Frandsen Family,
We were saddened to hear about the death of our good neighbor Lawrence. It was always a pleasure to know that he and Margaret were there (just across the street) to help watch over things, especially our parents after we left the home. May our Heavenly Father's choicest blessings be with you in your time of grief and always. It is so hard to see parents go, but nice to realize that we have the opportunity to see them again. What great memories you must have. Cherish them.
Our love,
Evan and Nicki Excell

I have been thinking of the entire Frandsen family today, wishing I could have been to your wonderful father and grandfather's funeral. What a sweet, kind, and hard-working man he was. Always had a smile and a kind word each time I saw him during our years in Panguitch. Deb, you know how special you are to me, along with your sweet Kami! Panguitch has lost a giant of a man. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Rod and Frandsen Family,
I want to express my deepest sympathies in the passing of Lawrence. He was a great man that served others with kindness and love. He was a great story teller and I cherish the many hours I had the opportunity to spend with him. Long car rides to baseball and basketball games, lunch time at the saw mill, and many other memories. He was a big man with a bigger heart, his friendship, and yours, is a valuable part of my life.

Lloyd Frandsen and family: my thoughts go back to 1968 - 69 as we were blessed to serve together in the Great West Centrai States Mission. I learned then of the deep love you have for your family. I also know that the message of the gospel and the plan of salvation bring us hope and understanding of our Father's Plan for all of us.
Our best regards to you at this difficult time and please know that you will be in our thoughts and prayers
