After a long battle with age-related health issues, our beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather and uncle, William Haws Lichfield, 86, joined his beautiful wife and passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 5, 2019 in St. George, Utah.
William was born in Afton Wyoming to Robert Clarence and Vinna Haws Lichfield. He graduated from Weber High School in 1951, and continued his education at Weber College, Salt Lake Vocational School, and Utah State University, where he was enrolled in machinist and engineering programs. He held machinist, foreman and manager positions at several large corporations in northern Utah, including, Hill Air Force Base, Kennecott and Thiokol. Among his many accomplishments, he secured two United States patents—a propulsion unit and liners for rocket motor casings. After leaving Thiokol, William was involved in several small businesses, including one he was actively engaged with until quite recently.
On April 23, 1952, William married the love of his life, Jacquelyn Sue Watson, in the Salt Lake temple. The couple was together 67 years. One of their favorite pastimes was watching sports—specifically Utah Jazz and BYU games. William also enjoyed talking politics with anyone who was up for the challenge.
William is survived by his daughter LuAnn H. (Doug) Dewey, St. George; three sons, Dale W. (Lucinda) Lichfield, Brigham City; Mark W. Lichfield, Pleasant View; and Neil W. Lichfield, Central; 12 grandkids; and 20 great-grandkids.
He was preceded in death by his wife Jacquelyn, his parents and siblings, his son Lynn, and two grandsons—Bohdi Silvia and Justin Lichfield.
Don’t forget us grandpa; we won’t forget you.
