I served a mission to Brazil 1967-1969 then graduated from the University of Utah in 1973. That same week married Juanita Hebbert (Olympus Class of '70). I retired from the Marine Corps in 1993 and during that period we lived in Virginia twice, Florida twice, Japan twice, Hawaii and California twice. I also served two tours aboard ship in the Pacific and Indian Ocean and acquired over 4,000 flight hours.
We have six children, the last one coming late in our lives but he was a welcome surprise. The first five kids all graduated from BYU (five served missions) and youngest entered BYU the fall of 2015, now back form his mission and again attending BYU.
After retirement I worked for an engineering firm in Virginia and then in 2004 I started my own firm and retired again Dec 2015.

Moved back to Holladay (temporarily in June 2018). Now live in American Fork.

I have enjoyed my Church callings over the years in many different wards. I am an avid genealogist/historian. After arriving in Virginia in 1989 I discovered one of my family lines arrived here in 1620 from London, thus our stay here has been filled with family history (Pres. Thomas Jefferson a 4th cousin).

School Story

I was a nobody at Olympus.

Craig Russell has left an In Memory comment for Lincoln Ure.
Jun 17, 2016 at 6:33 PM



1947 ~ 2016
Lincoln Richard Ure III, an Episcopal priest and chaplain at St. Mark's Hospital, died June 10,2016 in Salt Lake City. In his forty-one years at St. Mark's, he counseled thousands of hospital patients and their families, hospital staff, and student chaplains. His kindness, wisdom, moral
courage and irreverent sense of humor will be sorely missed.
Born October 4, 1947 to L. Richard Ure, Jr. and Betty Olander Ure, Linc married the love of his life, Maureen O'Hara, in 1969 in Minneapolis. He was the doting father of Heather Ure Dunagan and besotted grandfather of Heather's four incredible children: Owen, Lavinia, Tessa and
Lincoln graduated from the University of Utah with a B.A. in Chemistry in 1970, and from The
General Theological Seminary, New York City, with an M.Div. in 1974. He was ordained priest
by The Rt. Rev. Otis Charles in 1975.
A dedicated teacher and mentor, Father Ure created the first Clinical Pastoral Education Program
in Utah. Since 1987, he was a fully-certified CPE supervisor and served on many committees for
the national Association for Clinical Pastoral Education and was the chair for the 2009 ACPE
national conference held in Salt Lake. He helped establish the first hospice in Utah and was an
active voice addressing end-of-life issues. In 1980, he helped re-open St. Luke's Church, Park
City, and held Sunday services there for eleven years. He was an affiliated priest at the Cathedral
Church for many years. From 1998 to the present, Linc served on the Board of Trustees for St.
Mark's Hospital. He was passionate about ethical issues, and was on the hospital's Ethics
Committee since 1993.
Linc's concern for others was never theoretical. Once, on the way to dinner downtown, he spotted
a distraught stranger threatening to jump from a fire escape. Despite his fear of heights, Linc
climbed several stories and dissuaded the man from committing suicide. For his efforts, he
received the Citizen's Courage Award from the SLC Mayor's Office in 2003. His achievements in
the healthcare field earned him a "Healthcare Hero" award from Utah Business Magazine in
Lincoln is survived by his wife, the artist Maureen O'Hara Ure; daughter Heather and her
husband John Dunagan, four grandchildren Redmond, WA; loving sister Carol Ure, Seattle; and
the many in-laws, nieces, nephews and cousins in his lively and affectionate family.
The family is grateful for the devoted care provided by St. Mark's physicians and staff during
Linc's struggle with primary splenic angiosarcoma. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests
donations to Road Home (210 South Rio Grande, SLC 84101) or to the Lincoln Ure Memorial
Fund (c/o Episcopal Community Services, 75 South 200 East, SLC 84111).
Funeral services with the Holy Eucharist will be held at the Cathedral Church of St. Mark, 231
East 100 South, on Wednesday, June 15 at 1:00 p.m.

Craig Russell has left an In Memory comment for Howard Jacob DeWaal.
Jun 30, 2015 at 6:34 AM

My name is Lee Sorensen I was a friend of Howard De Waal. I appreciate the Olympic class for asking me to tell a few experiences I had with my friend Howard. Howard and 1 have a history even before we were born. Howards Dad and my Dad were LDS missionary companions in 1941 in the California missions. The California mission took in California, Arizona and some of Utah. My Dad, Burke Sorensen, and Jake De Waal became very close friends. Their missions ended in 1942 and both returned home and were married. One summer Jake wanted to bring his family down to Southern Utah to visit his old mission companion. Jake had about 4 or 5 kids then and that was about the same size as our family. In our family I was the oldest and I think Howard was second or third in his family. I remember them coming to Orderville and spending a week with us. I was about 15 and Howard was about 12. We had a really good time together. After that first summer, Howards family would come down almost every year and spend time with us having picnics ,cookouts and what ever else fun thing we could think to do.
In January of 1963 I received my mission call. My dad asked Jake De Waal, who was living in Holiday, if he would pick me up from the bus stop when I went up to the mission home. I remember Jake coming down to the bus stop in his VW bus and picking me up and taking me to his home. I spent a couple of nights with his family and then he took me down to the mission home.
When I returned from my mission I was drafted into the Army. Howard and I happened to be drafted at the same time. Howard received his draft letter after he received his mission call to Spain. We talked about how he was going to go to Spain when he got out of the service. We went to basic training together in Fort Lewis then we were both sent Fort Poke Louisiana. We were still in the same company there and formed a close relationship. We watched out for one another. After Fort Poke we were reassigned to Vietnam. We went to Vietnam together. We were in the same battalion but different companies. We were able to see each often and we would attend church together. Howard and I would watch out for one another. He was always such a good example to me. While other soldiers would go in to town Howard and I would hangout together around our battalion. We would watch movies in the rain. The whole time Howard was in Vietnam he was always preparing for himself to serve his mission when he got home. After a while Howard was reassigned to the Mekong Delta area down around Saigon. After that we lost contact with one another but our time was growing short and we would be heading home in March. I still remember when 1 got the letter. I was working in resupply in base camp in Quan Loi and a letter came from home and told me Howard had been killed. When I got the letter I couldn't believe it. I sat on some ammo boxes there and just thought about all the times we had together. At one time we had discussed signing papers with each other so that if one of us did end up being killed that the other one would be able to escort the body home. We never did get the papers filled out. I promised myself when I was sitting there that when I had a son I would want him to be just like Howard. So when my first son was born I named him Howard after my good Friend Howard De Waal. When my son was 12 we made a trip up to Holiday to visit Howards family.I remember him very well and we still speak of him all the time. I think about him almost every day and the example that he set for me. I tell my son about him all the time. I want to thank the class for getting in touch with me so I could send my memories for him.
And I would like to get in touch with some of his family. If anyone could help me with that.
