Kenneth Humphreys, 63, while at his sister’s home in Paradise, Utah, returned to his Heavenly Father on Wednesday, July 25, 2012, after a brave battle with liver cancer.
He was born Jan. 28, 1949, in Ogden, Utah, to Newell Don and Claire Allen Humphreys.
Ken was known to family, friends and others as a loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.
He was “respectfully” rebellious, proven to tow the line when provoked, but seldom crossing it. He had a humorous outlook on his many trials in life. He was a humble and prayerful man, courteous and mindful of others. Ken touched the lives and souls of many who chanced his way, especially while serving on the staff at the Bread of Life Mission in Holbrook. He had a special bond with Bob Jones and Jon Gonzales; they were his “brothers.”
He married Vicki Stapp and although they were later divorced, they remained very close friends.
Survivors include his daughter, Lisa Lopez, and his grandsons, Marcus and Eric, all of Concord, Calif.; Vicki and his son, Kenneth of Redding, Calif.; and his sister, LaDawn Hirst, and his mother, both of Paradise.
He was preceded in death by his father and by his sister, Marcene Hatch.
He will be deeply missed by those left behind and zealously welcomed by those gone before him.
In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer a charitable contribution to the Hospice Foundation of Utah, or a prayer, a kind word or a helping hand to those in need.
He will be cremated under the direction of Allen-Hall Mortuary of Logan, Utah, and requested that there be no services.
