- About Us
Roy Clifton Fudge, 76, of Keller, Texas, and formerly of Tooele, Utah; was a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather to everyone in the Fudge family. Peacefully in his home, and near his loved ones, he bravely completed his battle with cancer on November 9, 2018 and returned to his Heavenly Father.
Born in the town of Hamlin, TX on August 18, 1942 to his parents, Kirby Haskell Fudge and Mary Emily Drummond, and being the youngest of 4 kids, he turned out many “wild and crazy” stories of his childhood in Texas and California. All of which were happily passed on to the next generation in many laugh-filled family gatherings.
Roy met and married his beautiful wife, Linda Lee Lohnes in 1965; and they have enjoyed 53 happy years together as a loving example of a beautiful relationship to their family and friends. Roy was a loyal and loving husband and father to his family, and every child and grandchild knew that “Daddy” would take care of the problem and help in any way he could.
Having served in the United States Air Force as a photographer from 1960-1966; and after his honorable discharge from the Air Force, he worked for the Civil Service as a Scientific Technical Photographer. He eventually became Chief Photo Operator of the Utah Test and Training Range.
He was also a very proud and active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; where he fulfilled many wonderful years serving as a true example of Christ’s love to his family, friends and community.
Roy is survived by his wife of 53 years, Linda: their five children; Roger Scott Fudge, and his wife, Stephanie; Shelby Leigh Douglas, and her husband, Daniel; Stacy Lyn Eggleston, and her husband, Ryan; Kari Jo Bailey, and her husband, Shaun; and Kenneth Robert Fudge, and his fiancé Joey. He is also survived by his older brother, Kenneth and his wife Lovell of Visalia, CA; as well as 19 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, with two more on the way.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Kirby and Mary, his brother, Bobby Ray Fudge; his sister, Mary Frances Black; and great grandchild, Marcus Ortega.
