GUYMON, Clifton C. An extraordinary example of determination, hard work, dedication and service. Clifton C. Guymon passed away on February 25, 2018, at the age of 92. Clifton was born in Ucon, ID but was raised in Springville, UT until he joined the Merchant Marines at the age of 17 and served as Ship’s Cook…no wonder he was such a great cook!! He also served in the US Army until World War II ended. He married Joye Roylance in 1946 and moved to Phoenix, AZ where they had their family and lived until 1964 when they moved to the Santa Rosa, CA area. Clifton began his career in Phoenix, AZ as a Postal Clerk for the United States Postal Service. He worked over 30 years for the Postal Service. Clifton’s excellent leadership for the United States Postal Service was instrumental in many changes that benefited the US Post Office and resulted in his promotion to Postmaster in the Sonoma, CA area where he served the last nine years as a Postmaster until his retirement. His life-long passion was service in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Clifton served in many capacities for the LDS church, including Bishop, High Councilman, and Seminary teacher. He served as a Patriarch since 1980 until his death. One of Clifton’s greatest achievements was leading the team who built the LDS church in Sebastopol, CA. Clifton was preceded in death by his first wife, Joye Roylance, in 1994 and then by his second wife, Maurine Childs, in 2013. He is survived by his four children, Becky, Bonnie, Mark and Patricia, 15 grandchildren, and 36 great-grandchildren. Clifton’s final resting place is in Fountain Green, UT.
