Wayne E Saunders, age 82, passed away on October 19, 2014 in Herriman, UT. He was born March 17, 1932 in Ogden, Utah to Clarence Reuben Saunders and Opal Wyoming Crouch.

Wayne was active in the LDS Church having served as Bishop, Stake President, Patriarch, and Temple Sealer, but he felt his greatest accomplishments and joy were with his family. Together, we enjoyed camping, fishing, hiking, hunting, skiing, and the beautiful world he loved. In his words, “I have loved this earth and the great majesty of the Lord’s creation.” Dad loved people and felt great satisfaction in serving his fellowmen in whatever way he could. He enjoyed teaching, both in the schools and in the Church. He had a deep and abiding testimony of our Heavenly Father and of our Savior, Jesus Christ. He said, “I know that Christ lives and I believe in Him and thank Him for all He has given us.” Funeral services will be held on Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at the Herriman Rose Canyon Stake Center 7079 W.
