H. Robert Brummett H. Robert Brummett, 83, slipped peacefully from this life on Saturday, December 11, 2004, due to pneumonia and its complications. Bob was born June 22, 1921, in San Mateo, California, and was adopted as a newborn by Hiram Burton and Elizabeth Hansen Brummett. He lived with his parents and his sisters, Helene and Bette, in the San Francisco Bay area until his mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Eastern States Mission, followed immediately by service in the U.S. Army during WW II. He married Mildred Leon Mason on July 13, 1945, in Lexington, Kentucky, and their marriage was solemnized in the Salt Lake City Temple as the couple traveled back to California, following Bob's return from the Philippines. Bob earned a bachelor's degree from San Francisco State and a master's degree from the University of California - Berkeley. He taught junior and senior high school mathematics in Angels Camp, and then Santa Rosa, California for 30 years and never stopped valuing education. Bob and Mildred are the parents of five children: Linda, of Provo; Barbara (Ted) Anderson, of Peoria, Arizona; Rebecca (Mark) Garrett, of Hurricane; Patricia (Ron) Williams, of Ocean Shores, Washington; John (Margie), of Lehi. He is survived by his sister, Bette (Chuck) Dean, of Visalia, California; all five children, 14 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren. His loving wife, Mildred, died on October 5, 1998. His parents and his sister, Helene (Newell) Christensen, also preceded him in death. The joy of Bob's life was his abiding testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and serving diligently in many church callings. Following his retirement, Bob and Mildred moved to Orem, Utah, and he found great satisfaction serving as an ordinance worker and supervisor in the Provo and Mount Timpanogos Temples. Throughout his life, he was a devoted member of his wards' choirs. Funeral services, under the direction of the Walker Sanderson Funeral Home of Orem, will be held Tuesday, December 14, 2004, at 11 a.m., in the Vermont First Ward Chapel, 400 North and 400 East, Orem. Friends may call at the church from 9:30-10:30 a.m. prior to the services. Burial will be in the Orem City Cemetery with full Military Rites. Bob's children especially want to thank the staff and residents of Summerfield Manor in Orem where he was strengthened by their friendship and care, and to thank his kind physician, Dr. Paul Reay. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests hugging your children, taking them to see some Christmas lights, and making a donation to the Perpetual Education Fund of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
