Funeral Recording

David (Dave) Lon Heaston, age 73, died on Saturday, April 20, 2019 at his home due to complications from a heart attack and a stroke surrounded by his wife and three daughters.  Dave was born on July 26, 1945 in St. Louis, Missouri to Leonard (Pat) and Mildred (Millie) Heaston.  He and his four younger brothers Dennis, Greg, Gary and Pat grew up in Kaysville, Utah.
Excelling in academics, Dave graduated from Davis High School as class valedictorian in 1963.  He served a two and a half year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Austria.  Dave went on to graduate from Brigham Young University with a masters degree in Zoology/Endocrinology during which time he met and married his sweet wife Lenda Isaacson.  Dave's compassionate nature and gift of empathy inspired his lifelong desire to become a doctor and care for people.  In his words, "I just couldn't picture myself doing anything else."  He was accepted to a progressive medical school at the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada.  After completing medical school he returned to Utah to attend the University of Utah to finish a residency in family medicine.  For years, his service as a family doctor blessed the lives of countless individuals.
Dave and Lenda had four children, Jason, Jill (Dave), Jaime (Steve), and Alissa (Matt) and eleven beautiful grandchildren.  Dave found joy in photographing both his family and the beauty of nature.  His love for the gospel of Jesus Christ inspired his desire to serve those around him.  He found peace and happiness as he continually studied the teachings of the church. In a recent testimony to his granddaughter Dave wrote," When it does not seem that our fervent prayers have been answered...we need to exercise faith and trust in the Lord and have patience to know that He knows and loves us and that all things will ultimately turn out for our good."
