Roy John Maw passed away peacefully April 18, 2017 at his home, surrounded by his family. Johnnie was born April 5, 1926 in Plain City to Rufus and Frances Dance Maw. He grew up working for the family business and attended Weber County Schools. He interrupted his high school education to join the U.S. Navy when he was 17, serving in the South Pacific during World War II. John retired from the civil service at Hill Air Force Base. He has spent his retirement farming, raising beef cattle, and raising and racing Quarter Horses.

John married his junior high sweetheart, Norma Jean Folkman in the Salt Lake Temple on May 10, 1946. They have lived their entire married life in Plain City. In May, they would have been married 71 years.

John was active in the LDS Church, where he was a High Priest and served in several positions.

Johnnie was a devoted family man. His greatest joy was his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. If you ask anyone them, they will tell you they were his favorite. "Gramps" showered them with Smarties, Twenty Dollar Bills and Love.

Johnnie is survived by his sweetheart, Norma Jean; his children; Dan (Uraina) Maw, Joel (Dawn) Maw, Cindy Maw, and Karen (Martin) Denney. They have 14 grandchildren and 30 great-grandchildren and 3 more on the way. Also surviving is his sister Karole Crompton.

He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Alice Taylor and brother Junior B. Maw.

The family wishes to offer a special thanks to Hospice Care of Northern Utah, most especially Ashley, Ronal, Nancy and Eileen for their compassionate care of our beloved "Gramps".
