Finch Wall. He married Dolores Leona Wilcock March 16, 1946 in Long Beach, California and they were sealed in the Salt Lake LDS Temple April 18, 1964. She died July 24, 2006.
Junior was a 63 year member of the Operating Engineers Local 3. He worked for WW Clyde, JM Sumsion & Sons and Utah Construction. He served in WWII and was a member of the VFW.
He loved gardening, farming and leading his grandchildren through the "garden of eatin". He tended his orchards and gardens with pride and expertise. He was passionate about being independent and self-sustaining. He loved nature and taught his posterity to appreciate and love the gifts of his labors. Dad shared his harvest with many and proudly claimed to grow the best in the rich soil of Santaquin. He loved Santaquin Canyon and his love for the mountains, hunting and fishing was shared with others often. His greatest love was his family and we will deeply miss him.
