In Memory

Harold Mecham



Harold Mont Mecham

Harold Mont Mecham "Hank" 6/12/1949 ~ 1/11/07 Hank Mecham of West Jordan passed away January 11, 2007 while performing the work that he loved. His skills in building were only surpassed by his amazing ability to befriend all. It never took him long to get to know others and show genuine concern for their needs. Those who already knew him recognized his desire to give service at every opportunity. When he wasn't enjoying the outdoors he could be found working in and around Salt Lake. Hank was looked up to and loved by all his children and six grandchildren who could do no wrong in his eyes. Many of his skills and traits have been passed on to his family.

Hank was born to Arzell and Melba Mecham in Salt Lake. After serving a LDS mission in the Philippines he was sealed to Beverly Lynn Peck in the Salt Lake Temple and had two children, Adam (Natalie) and Jacob (Andrea).  When Beverly died he was lucky to find a second great love in Julie Stevens Satterfield.  Hank was happy to be married in the Salt Lake Temple and add four more children to his family, Marnie, Seth, Zachary(Morgan), and Branigan.  Hank was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  He enjoyed serving in many callings working with the Boy Scouts, youth organizations, high council, and his most recent service as Branch President of the 9th Branch in the Jordan Oaks Stake.  He always found comfort in the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ and his faith and love for the Lord were evident in his life. He is loved by all and will be deeply missed. Grateful thanks to his many friends and neighbors for their kindness. 

Proceeded in death by wife, Beverly; his father; and sisters, Elaine and Marie. In lieu of flowers please donate to the general missionary fund.
