Joseph Lynn Chapple

OGDEN – Joseph Lynn Chapple was born November 9, 1913 in Riverdale, Utah to William Charles Chapple and Effie Abigail Garner. He moved to Ogden, where he attended school---especially enjoying the ROTC. He also took some advanced classes in Salt Lake City.

He loved music and during his life he shared his beautiful voice at funerals, church, civic affairs and in musical productions. He was a member of the Ogden Tabernacle Choir, which had the honor of singing with the Salt Lake Tabernacle Choir on several occasions.

He worked for the Standard Examiner for many years—beginning as a paperboy and ending as a proofreader. He also worked in the supply section at the Ogden Supply Depot, and helped to establish the “Dew Line” (radar) along the Canadian border during World War II. Later he transferred to Hill Air Force Base where he finished his career.

He married Margaret (Peggy) Wraspir in the Salt Lake Temple June 5, 1944.

He was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He served with dedication in Bishoprics and many other church positions. He especially enjoyed serving at the Wasatch Care Center.

His life was spent in service to others. He was always quick to give help to friends or strangers. He was known for his honesty and integrity: often paying more for a service provided than was required. He loved his grandchildren and made many wonderful memories with them.

His older brother, Clifford, recently preceded him in death.

He is survived by his wife and four children: Joy (Michael) Bitter, Joel (Tina) Chapple, Lane and Evan Chapple, and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
