Kenneth Sawyer Obituary, Death – Kenneth Charles Sawyer, 72, our loving husband, father, grandpa, son, and brother, died on Wednesday, December 14. On May 2, 1950, he was born in Van Nuys (Los Angeles County), California parents Charles Sawyer and Lois White Sawyer. He grew up in California and later served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in London, England, when he was 19 years old. He then went on to attend BYU college in Idaho and then Utah State in Logan, UT, where he finished with a degree in Business. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in a variety of capacities within the church. He particularly enjoyed working with the primary nursery and cleaning the church.
On December 17, 1982, he married Roberta (Lewis) Sawyer in the Logan, Utah Temple (Together for 40 Years). He adored his family and accepted all of the obligations that come with being a father to seven children. He loved coming to the temple and church with his wife, as well as spending time with her and caring for her till he died. Ken worked as a machine operator for Coca-Cola for numerous years and was widely known for his work ethic; it was critical for him to be on time. He enjoyed ballroom dancing, choir singing, family vacations, kung fu, baptisms, and fishing. Ken was gentle, humble, and gracious, with a wicked sense of humour. He’ll be sorely missed.
