Warren (Sandy) Harding Thurston

Born: 3/17/1921, Natoma, Kansas
Death: 6/14/2014, Moab, Utah

Warren Harding “Sandy” Thurston, 93, passed away on June 14, 2014 at Canyonlands Care Center.

Sandy was born on March 17, 1921 to Chester Arthur and Effie Phoebe Reedy Thurston in Natoma, Kansas. He was one of seven children. He attended a one-room schoolhouse through the eighth grade. And went on to go to high school in Codell, Kansas.

Sandy held many interesting jobs during his life including truck driving, sheep ranching, working as a deputy sheriff, mining coal, and uranium ore. He served in the US Navy during WWII. He retired from his last job, as a electrician for Texas Gulf Potash Company in 1983.

On June 25, 1939 Warren married Frances Elizabeth Every. Four children were born to this union: Helen Ruth, Arthur Lee, Frank G. and Roger Dean Thurston. Sandy and Frances were married for sixty-five years and six months before she passed away.

Sandy is survived by his daughter Helen Ruth (Joe) Garcia, and his son Frank (Julianna) Thurston both of Moab, and many grandchildren, great grand children, and great-great grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his beloved wife Frances, two sons Roger and Arthur Thurston, two grandsons Jeff Thurston and Joe Thurston.

At Sandy’s request cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held at a later date.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
