Deceased Name: James Walton Latimer III

UT United States


James Walton Latimer III 1946 ~ 2008 It was a dark day May 20, 2008 when I lost my best friend. Farewell my love until we meet again, Your eternal sweetheart, Debs or as Jim called me "Bones".James Walton Latimer III, was killed instantly in a work-related accident on 20 May 2008 at South Myton Oil Field, Uintah County, Utah. Jim was born 22 August 1946 in Salt Lake City, Utah to James Walton Latimer, Jr. and Hazel June Baker. He was the first of three children born to this couple. Jim attended Olympus High and after graduation he spent four years in the Army with the majority of his active duty in Europe. Jim graduated from Salt Lake Technical College with an Associate Degree in Applied Science. In the Spring of 1969 he met and fell in love with Debra Ann Bryson. They were married on 28 January 1970 at Elko, Nevada. Their marriage was later solemnized on 14 May 1982 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Two beautiful children, twins were born to their family, James Walton Latimer, IV and Trenie Lyn Latimer. Jim and Debbie shared 38 wonderful years together. Jim had a knack to find a nickname for many of his friends and family members. These nicknames will be fondly remembered for many years to come. Jim always had a twinkle in his eye and a big grin on his face and loved to tease everyone with witty words. His brothers-in-law lovingly called him the "Duct Tape King". There was nothing he could not repair using duct tape. Wherever you turned there was something patched with good ol' grey duct tape. Whenever we see a roll of grey duct tape it will bring warm memories to our hearts. Jim loves his family very much and especially loved to spend time with them in the great outdoors. There were many camping, fishing and hunting trips with nights spent around the campfire roasting hotdogs and marshmallows and singing and telling scary stories. His family will greatly miss these times they shared with him, but their memories will carry them through this difficult time. Jim was designated as the family photographer and was always taking pictures. He had a wall covered with pictures of all those he loved deeply. He was very artistic and created many scrapbook pages which will be treasured by his family.
