Jesse Hadfield Paskett was born April 11, 1918 in Grouse Creek, Utah a son of Frank and Jessie Hadfield Paskett.
His brothers and sisters are: Merton, Edwin, Darrell, Cavell, Ivy, Philetta, Eldora, Mary and Frankie.
Jesse married his eternal sweetheart, Esther Gwenne John in the Logan LDS Temple on October 19, 1937.
His children are: Doris, Rose Marie, Myrie, Ronald, Lois, and LaRae.
He was a valiant member of the LDS Church and worked tirelessly and diligently in every position he was asked to fill. He had a strong testimony of the Gospel and was granted a glance into the eternities when he passed through the veil as he underwent an unsuccessful heart operation. He was allowed to return to his family where his mission must not have been completed here on earth.
He was an inspiration to everyone who knew him. He was a joy to his wife and family and was always bringing smiles and laughs to those he was around with his quick wit, jokes and great sense of humor.
He loved to work with his hands and used his creativity to organize, construct and repair anything that “wasn’t quite right”.
Jesse retired early due to bad health, but was given additional wonderful years with his wife and family when our Heavenly Father granted him good enough health to undergo a successful triple-by-pass heart surgery. He devoted every waking moment of the last 7 years to caring for, nursing back to health and loving his sweet “Esther” through her time of poor health.
He was employed by the State of Utah, Department of Highways; operated service stations and in his earlier years worked at Utah Poultry.
He died December 21, 2001 and is buried in the Redwood Memorial Estates.
