John Hayden Greer, 89, of Honeyville, Utah, passed away peacefully on April 21, 2021 at his home due to natural causes. He was surrounded by his loving family.
John was born November 30, 1931 in Campus, Kansas to Oscar Warren and Ethel Pearl (Stults) Greer. He was the 11th of 13 children, two of which passed away in infancy. After completing the eighth grade, he left home to work out West on farms and to be closer to his brothers.
John served in the Army for three years between 1949 and 1953. His primary stations were at Fort Custer and Fort Wayne, Michigan.
He married Luana Ruby Morrell on December 26, 1957 in Elko, Nevada. They were later sealed in the Logan Utah Temple in February of 1963.
John spent most of his career working first with Morrison-Knudsen on the railroad causeway running by Little Valley, UT and later on the Flaming Gorge Dam. John later became a heavy equipment operator for Wasatch Electric on numerous power line jobs throughout the Intermountain West. John also raised cattle and enjoyed working on his ranch in Wyoming where he developed friendships with several good people.
John was a convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served faithfully in many callings.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Jack, Leo, and Joe, sisters Iva, Imogene, Betty, JoAnn and Judy, and his wife, Luana.
He is survived by his four children: Rick (Gayla) Greer of Souix Falls, SD, Vickie (Mike) Tripp of Stockton, UT, Debbie Stout of Honeyville, UT, and Bonnie (Kent) Jensen of Dayton, ID as well as 11 grandchildren and 24 great grandchildren along with his sister Elaine and his brother Wayne.
The Greer family would like to thank Bishop Craig Anderson and Bristol Hospice, especially Holly Nielsen and Skyler, for their care and assistance during a difficult time.
Graveside services will be held at 12:00pm, April 26, 2021, at the Willard Cemetery, Utah. A viewing will be held at Gillies Funeral Chapel, 634 East 200 South, Brigham City, from 11:00 to 11:40am.

My husband is Elaine Millard's son. He had only a few opportunities to visit his Uncle John when he was a child, but we wanted to let you know that you are all in our prayers. What a blessing to know that he will be with his family in eternal life. We cannot attend the service, but we will be watching on the live stream. Love to you all,
Gary and Ann Millard, Eagle, Alaska

V Vickie Tripp on Apr 25, 2021

Daddy,
As we look back over time we find ourselves wondering. Did we remember to thank you enough for all you have done for us? For all the times you were by our sides to help and support us. To celebrate our successes. To understand our problems and accept our defeats. For teaching us by your example the value of hard work, good judgement, courage and integrity? We wonder if we ever thanked you for the sacrifices you made to let us have the very best? And for the simple things like laughter, smiles and time shared? If we have forgotten to show our gratitude enough for all the things you did, We are thanking you now. We are hoping that you knew all along how much you meant to us.
Until we see you again, Always remember how much you are Loved.
Vickie & Mike Tripp

Although I am unable to be there for the service, I want the family to know that I sincerely care about this wonderful man. John and his beautiful wife Luana have always held a very special place in my heart. They are the best of the best and will never be forgotten! So very sorry for your loss.

My favorite memories of Grandpa Greer: Enjoying biscuits and gravy around his breakfast table and listening to him talk with his hands in his pocket. You are missed, Grandpa Greer. We love you. -Sarah Greer

We always enjoyed when John would come in the bank. He was always very pleasant and respectful to all of us, we will miss him. Our condolences to John's family with the loss of such wonderful man.

K Kent Jensen on Apr 23, 2021

A sizable chunk of my life was spent by the side of John. We shared some priceless memories never to be forgotten. I am a better man for it. He should be proud of the life he molded. It was because of him I now have my best friend Bonnie. What more could I ask.
He was a blessing to my family. We'll meet again.
Kent Jensen
