- About Us
Dave passed away in Tooele surrounded by his family, the night of January 19th.
He was born in Tooele, UT on October 9th, 1953 to Budd and Lucille Tonioli. He grew up with two older brothers Kent (Linda) and Bob (Jean). He was married to Shauna Utley in 1978. While they were together, they had 4 children, Mike (Andrea), Marsha (TJ), Lisa (Shay), and Julie with now 8 Grandkids - Brandon, Xander, Ilauna, Kenadee, Braxton, Annabelle, Beau and Avaline.
He graduated from Tooele High School in 1971 where he was an officer in the FFA. He worked for Albertsons for over 30 years and helped in the community tilling gardens in the spring.
Our fondest memories with him included going to the family cabin, riding four-wheelers, chopping wood and hunting. He also enjoyed tinkering and finding out how things worked.
Dave was always giving to charity even when he didn’t have much to give.
Dave had an abundance of friends that we know would like to say their goodbyes, but he requested no funeral or viewing. We will be having a graveside service Friday, February 15th 2:00PM at the Tooele City Cemetery.
Dave is survived by his brother Kent, Sister in Law Jean, his (4) Children and (8) Grandchildren.
Preceded in death by his parents (Budd and Lucille), Brother Bob and Sister in Law Andre'.
In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made to the Tooele Food Bank.
We would like to thank Mountain West Medical Center ICU Staff for their compassion and hard work. They went above and beyond throughout the last few days of our dad's life.
