Valjoe (Val) Dennis Hope passed away on July 3, 2019 surrounded by his family at the

University of Utah hospital, due to complications from a heart attack that occurred on

May 24, 2019.

He was born in Ogden, Utah to Claine Devere and D. Lynette Hope on Sept 10, 1958. He

grew up in Ogden and briefly lived in San Jose, Calif. He attended schools in the area and

attended Weber State University. He worked at different jobs including Hill Air Force

He was married to Jeannette Lance in 1979 and they had two children together, Jennifer

and Benjamin. They were later divorced. He married Julia Nichols in 1996 and she

passed away in Apr 2004.

Val loved to take long walks with his mother and her dog Rowdy along the Ogden River.

He also loved to search out those overlooked gems at the local thrift stores, where he

was able to find some valuable items from time to time. He never missed the farmers

market when they were running. Val enjoyed the companionship of animals and always

looked forward to the 4th of July. Everywhere he went, he made a friend.

He is survived by two daughters Joslyn Hope of Ogden, Jennifer (Jeremy) Norton of

Lander, Wyoming and a son Benjamin Deuel (Danie Ann) of Roy, his mother Lynette

Spiers of Ogden, two brothers Larry (Debbie) Hope of West Haven and Lance (Sherry)

Hope of Riverdale, as well as many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by

his father Claine and his wife Julia.

The family would like to thank the Doctors, Nurses and staff at the U of U hospital for all

their valiant efforts and loving care.

He had requested to be cremated and there will be a Memorial Service held on

Saturday, July 13, 2019, at 1 pm at the Myers Mortuary at 845 Washington Blvd. in

Ogden Utah.

A celebration of life to spread his ashes will be conducted at a later date.
