Dallas Clyde Strong



Dallas Clyde Strong, 92, passed away September 17, 2019, in American Fork, Utah. He was born August 12, 1927, in Alpine, Utah to Clyde Marinus Strong and Harriet Vilate Smith Strong. Dallas married Geraldine Costley Casey October 13, 1950, in Tooele, Utah. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple.

He grew up in Alpine, Utah but moved to American Fork when he was 18. He graduated from American Fork High School and attended BYU. He served in the US Navy until the end of WW II. He worked as an Accountant for 39 years at US Steel’s Geneva Works in Lindon. He operated a painting and wallpapering business most of his working years and after his retirement drove a school bus for 10 years.

He was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where he served in many callings. He also served as a temple worker, a clergy volunteer with Intermountain Health Care, and as a missionary with his wife in the Church’s Member Locator Center.

He loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing and running road in the backcountry. He was a jack-of-all-trades, a wise and righteous man that loved his family more than anything else. He will be greatly missed by his family and all who associated with him.

He is survived by his children: Dalene (John) Scott, Ray (Debbie) Strong, Paul (Shauna) Strong, and Kathleen (Steven) Judd. Dallas had 19 grandchildren and 41 great-grandchildren.

  1. Pretty section of content. I just stumbled upon your weblog
    and in accession capital to assert that I acquire in fact enjoyed account your blog posts.
    Any way I will be subscribing to your augment and even I
    achievement you access consistently quickly.

  2. You wouldn’t show up to a first date wearing a disguise, would you? Or wearing a plain paper bag over your head?
    So why would you choose an image of Grumpy Cat or Ron Burgundy to represent you in blog comments? Or settle for the faceless silhouette that screams generic nobody?

  3. Among your friends and family, you can go by Lil’ Bit, DJ Roomba, Superfly, House of Shane, or any other nickname you choose.
    But unless you’re a spy, or in witness protection, using your real name on a first date is just the right thing to do. (Unless, of course, it’s a blind date and Gary Busey sits down at your table.)

  4. The same is true in blog commenting. Bloggers, just like dates, want to know who’s trying to woo them. And someone who hides behind a pseudonym likely isn’t a long-term prospect
    Imagine you’re on a date and, halfway through, your date suddenly asks if you have life insurance.

  5. And usually it won’t matter how insightful your words are or how relevant your link may be; the blogger will feel an irresistible urge to kick you off their property.
    Ever been on a date with someone from Match or eHarmony who didn’t bother to read your profile?

  6. “Do you have any hobbies?” they’ll ask despite your profile’s thousand-word tribute to paper mache. “Fancy a juicy steak?” they’ll suggest despite your publicly stated veganism.
    It’s the same with blog commenting. Yes, you’re busy. Yes, reading a post thoroughly before commenting takes time.
