Dennis Ryan Orgill, our beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather, and friend passed away at home on May 13, 2012. Dennis was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on February 11, 1943, the second of four sons, to Willis and Vearis Orgill. Dennis grew up in Grantsville, graduated from Grantsville High School and attended BYU after serving in the North British LDS Mission. He married Judith Simmonds in the Salt Lake Temple on May 27, 1966. Dennis spent 38 years in a career at the Tooele Army Depot. Dennis was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and held many callings over the years.
