JACK VAL STOKER, 79 of Grant, passed away Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at the Perkins County Hospital in Grant.

Jack was born December 2, 1937 in Tooele, Utah to Carl R. Stoker and Mary Alice Bracken Stoker. His family moved to Huntsville, Utah where he was raised and lived most of his life. He attended Ogden Valley Schools and graduated from Weber High School in 1956.

He married Verlayne Richardson on September 19, 1958. Together, they had two sons. They were later divorced but remained friends. He started working for the Utah Dept. of Transportation in 1958 and worked there until his retirement. He had his own construction company, Stoker and Sons Construction and was lovingly known as "Gravel Jack". He was an honest, hard-working man. He enjoyed hunting and riding horses in his younger years, was a good dancer, and loved equipment auctions!

He married Rosemary Hayden. They then moved to Nebraska and split their time between Utah and Nebraska. They enjoyed the "get-togethers" with Jack's brother and sisters and family.

He was preceded in death by his parents; a sister, Janice; brother-in-law, Russell Drummond; and grandson, Mitchell K. Stoker.
