Contributed Photo

Lynn F. Ure, of Layton, turns 80 years old on Sunday, August 12, 2018. The third of four children of Harold V. and Alice Lumley Ure, he was born and raised on a dairy farm outside of Carthage, New York, before coming to Utah, courtesy of the United States Air Force in 1958. When first arriving in Utah, he lived in the Ogden area and played saxophone and clarinet in many local dance bands and was also the President of the Bonneville Chapter of the Sports Car Club of America.

Lynn retired from Unisys Corporation after a long career in Financial Management. He continues to serve as Vice Chairman on the Board of Directors for Mountain America Credit Union.

His hobbies include traveling, cars and airplanes and family activities (including Sunday breakfasts and Thursday night dinners with his sisters- and brother-in-laws). He is happiest though, when just spending time with his dog, Suki and his grandchildren.

Lynn is married to the former Pegge Jean Hill, and they will celebrate 50 years of marriage next month. Together they have a daughter and two sons: Joi Lin Olsen (Kirk), Robert T. Hill Ure (Dana) and Lynn F. Ure, Jr. (Autumn); and two sons from a previous marriage, Jeffrey L. Ure (Elaine) and Kurtis Ure. Their grandchildren are: Cydanie, Bretten and Mychael Allen; Anabelle and Maryjane Ure; Kelsee, Brylee, Tavish and Lyndee Ure; and Emily and Blake Ure. They also have one great-granddaughter, Thea.

Family will celebrate his milestone birthday with a barbecue held in his honor on Sunday.
