Orlin K. Iverson
Monroe, Utah

    Orlin K. Iverson passed away at his home in Monroe on May 11, 2024 at the age of 88.  Orlin was born in St. George on August 6, 1935 to Nora and Vern Iverson.  He was the 6th of 7 children.  When he was a young boy, his family moved to American Fork where he grew up. 
    He met  his sweetheart, Ila Saxton at a young age; the young couple married when he was 18 and she 16.  They married on October 9, 1953 in American Fork and were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple.  They were married for 65 years before Ila passed away on December 12, 2018. 
    Soon after they were married they started a family and had four children together.  Orlin was a good provider and worked at Geneva Steel, Lockheed, Clear Creek Summer Camp, and as a bus driver.  Orlin liked to keep on the move and moved his family 16 times!  
    Orlin had many hobbies and accomplishments.  He earned the rank of LTC in the Civil Air Patrol, president of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles, and SFC Sergeant 1st Class Communication Specialist and Engineer in the Utah National Guard.  He was also an accomplished carpenter, enjoyed gardening, and pottering around the yard or garage working on many projects. 
    Orlin loved spending time with family.  Moon Lake was a special place for his family to go camping.  They also enjoyed spending time in American Fork Canyon.  He loved to deer hunt, fish, go four wheeling, or work on a dune buggy.  He also had a lot of fun memories of scuba diving with brothers.
