DECLO – Charles Douglas Lind was born in Ogden, Utah, to Philbert C. and Cora Toyn Lind on March 21, 1929. He passed away quietly and with dignity on May 25, 2016.
He joined a growing, and loving family that ranched in the small valley of Lynn, Utah. His childhood was spent with siblings, cousins, and animals. He attended school in a one-room school house where the basics were taught. He was able to attend up to the 8th grade in Lynn and from there, went to school at Bear River High School in Garland, Utah, graduating in 1948.
During the Korean Conflict he enlisted in the United States Navy as a Fighting Sea Bee. While on shore leave, he met his future bride, Carol Warburton, at a Utah State basketball game. After leaving the Navy, he attended Utah State University graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in agriculture. Doug and Carol were married June 14, 1955, in the Logan Utah LDS Temple for time and all eternity.
They began married life in Lynn, Utah, where they started their family. While continuing ranching in Lynn, he and Carol bought a farm in the Mini-Cassia area and they have continued to reside in the Mini-Cassia area until his passing.
Doug was a stalwart member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many capacities during his lifetime. He studied the scriptures on a daily basis and was delighted when he could share his knowledge of the gospel with someone.
