Norman McGregor

OBITUARY Norman Douglas McGregor Jr. was born on May 22, 1935. He returned to his Heavenly Father on July 6, 2016 due to complications with diabetes and congestive heart failure. A descendant of William and Utah pioneer Agnes Murray McGregor, Norman was the first born child of Norman Douglas Sr. and Ella Nora Fellows McGregor. He was raised in South Gate, California where he graduated from South Gate High School. He attended Compton Jr. College and played football. He served and was honorably discharged from the United States Naval Reserves. On September 2, 1955 he married his high school sweetheart Sharon Rae Anderson in the Salt Lake Temple. In 1956 he joined with his father to start a family business. Norman and Sharon lived in Buena Park, California from 1959 until 1972, and with their four children enjoyed serving in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Norman was an Elder's Quorum President, a Seventies President, and served three Stake Missions. Church softball and basketball were favorite pastimes. In 1972 the family moved to Maeser, Utah, near Vernal. Here Norman partnered with his brother in-law Jay Page and operated Maeser Lumber and Hardware for a number of years. Church service in Vernal included Seventies President, High Priest Group Leader and a Vernal Temple worker from its opening until 2014. As the Uintah Basin economy went from boom to bust, Norman returned to California to work for his brothers, came back to Vernal to work for the Forest Service and finally the School District. Retiring, Norman and Sharon enjoyed numerous trips to National Parks, taking cruises and spending time with family. Norman is survived by his devoted wife Sharon and four children: Douglas (wife Carrie Jean Cook), Steven (former wife Sylvia Nuttall), Kaleen (husband Marc Millecam), and David; nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren; his siblings: James Joseph McGregor (wife Jenell), Jeanene McGregor Kersey (husband Robert), and Richard Lynn McGregor (wife Patty); two Anderson sister-in-laws and their spouses: Peggy and Jay Page, and Kathy and Forest Ewell; two half sisters: Bonnie Anderson Fisher and Donna Anderson Frandsen; Graveside services were held under the direction of Blackburn Vernal Mortuary at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery South Valley, 13001 South 3600 West, Riverton, Utah. The family wishes to express their gratitude to all of Norm's physicians, the kind people at the Vernal Dialysis Center, friends and neighbors who have freely given of their love and support throughout the years.
