Our beloved father, friend and Granddad, Owen Mower, passed away peacefully into the arms of our dear mother and Heavenly Father on December 22 following a long battle with congestive heart failure. He died at home in his sleep.\n\nBorn June 13, 1928 in Mt. Pleasant, Utah, to William Dodd and Reva Scovil Mower, he graduated from North Sanpete High School and attended Snow College before moving to Salt Lake City. There he met his eternal sweetheart, Peggy Mock, whose life and love was the core center for him from then on. They were married in the Salt Lake LDS temple November 21, 1952. Truly, their life together has been a rare and beautiful romance--interrupted briefly with her sudden death in June 2005. All who really knew them now celebrate their reunion.\n\nOwen and Peggy made many friends. They joined the Jaycees in the early 60's, and Owen was active with the founding group of Orem City volunteer fire fighters. Together they enjoyed a rich life traveling throughout the west in their 5th wheel camper trailer with their "crowd". All the while, Owen managed a very successful career as outside sales representative in wholesale plumbing/heating supplies. He won several sales contests and was rewarded with trips to Bermuda, Jamaica and other locations for his success.\n\nOwen leaves a lasting legacy of friendship, service and patience. His love for and commitment to his sweetheart Peggy was a model relationship and eternal example to their family. This marriage, this true-love story, is their legacy.\n\nOwen is survived by sister Aleen Riser, children Tracy (Melody) Mower; Cindy (Ted) Harding; Stephen (Joan) Mower; Randy (Lisa) Mower; 11 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his dear brother, Robert--just this October--and his sweet grandson Hayden.
