    • My dad wasn't a physical person so when he liked you he would tease you but if he didn't then he would ignore you.

      1940 - 2009
      Gary Benjamin Farnsworth, born October 28, 1940 to Boyd Benjamin and Betsy Helen Johnson Farnsworth in Salt Lake City, a loving son, husband, father, grandfather and great friend. We lost him June 26, 2009 at UVRMC in Provo. Shortly after his birth he and his mother moved to Santa Monica, CA where she raised him as a single mother for the first years of his life. He learned to love the ocean and became an excellent swimmer spending most of his time on the beaches. Growing up he attended military school. He enlisted in the navy in March, 1958 and proudly served his country.

      Gary enjoyed life to it's fullest traveling and experiencing the best this country has to offer. He married two times before returning to Salt Lake City and marrying his life partner Martha Raye Palmer in June of 1976.

      Together they raised her children Carol Xiemaine Quinton, Clesson Eugene Hill, Tonissa Lynn Hill, and Tiana Jean Hill. In 1978 they had their first daughter Makeesha Diane Farnsworth (Lopez). In 1980 they made their family complete with another daughter Mishayne Marie Farnsworth.

      They finished raising their children in the peace and quiet of Sanpete County. Gary spent his last few years enjoying retirement with his family but most enjoyable to him were his grandchildren. He is survived by his wife, six children, sixteen grandchildren, with one more on the way and his shadow, "Moose" (his dog). Preceded in death by his parents and step-daughter Brandy Lynn Hill.
