A model of courtesy, humility and service has completed his earthly sojourn as Joseph Condie Stoddard, of Ogden, Utah, on March 21, 2015, ultimately has succumbed to afflictions incident to Cortical Basal Degeneration Syndrome. As a rare neurological disorder, his affliction became the opportunity for many among family and friends to serve him and be affirmed by his fight; he will be missed, and remembered for the life lessons, compassion and courage he taught us.

Joe was born in Brigham City, Utah, December 24, 1952, the son of William Mack and Darlene Condie Stoddard. Blessed with a fine mind, Joe excelled in school, was inducted into the National Honor Society, and graduated with top honors from Box Elder High School. He became an Eagle Scout by grit and determination. He was a leader among peers within school and church youth groups. He graduated from Utah State University, majoring in mathematics. While at USU, he graduated from LDS Institute and was a member of the Sigma Gamma Chi fraternity. He shared his love of math as a teacher in Crown Point, New Mexico. Later, he joined the Internal Revenue Service where he began as a data transcriber, was promoted with increasing responsibilities, and served on the Planning and Analysis Staff at the time of his medically forced retirement. He was recognized with numerous quality, service and special recognition awards, developing and implementing process changes to make the plant operation more efficient and customer friendly; many of his proposals were adopted at IRS service centers throughout the country.

He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Paris France Mission from July 1972 to July 1974. Church service was rendered multiple times as a Ward / Branch Clerk and Financial Clerk, where his careful stewardship produced flawless accounts. Also, he had numerous involvements with Ward Activity Committees. He was a regular and active participant in service projects sponsored by the school organization, fraternity or church affiliations he maintained.

He was an outstanding chef. His culinary skills were influenced by French cuisine and sought out by colleagues. As well, he pursued interest as a collector (stamps, coins and other collectibles), computer electronics and photography/videography. With that interest, he was not often seen in the frame as he was the one documenting many events of historical and family interest.

He is survived by five brothers, two sisters, and sisters-in-law, William M. (Marian) Stoddard, Jr. (Tacoma, WA), James I. (Sandra) Stoddard (Ogden, UT), David P. (Pamela) Stoddard (West Jordan, UT), Charles G. (Sharon) Stoddard (Logan, UT), Thomas C. (LeAnn) Stoddard (Wilmington, NC), Marian Stoddard (Ogden, UT) and Ruth Ann Stoddard (Albuquerque, NM), along with 25 appreciative nieces and nephews, each of whom has been blessed by his love and generosity.

Arrangements are being handled by Myers Mortuary. A viewing will be held at their Ogden facility (845 Washington Blvd.) Thursday, March 26, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m., and 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. Friday, March 27 prior to the memorial service. Memorial service will commence at 11:00 a.m. at the mortuary. Graveside services later that day will be held for family and close friends prior to interment in the Brigham City, Utah Cemetery.

Sincere gratitude and appreciation is expressed at his passing to those who have served Joe throughout his ordeal, including many neighbors and church friends, as well as, Dr. David Schmitz of Ogden Clinic, Dr. Richard D. King, Dr. David Sprecher and Troy Anderson of the University of Utah Neurology Clinic.
