November 8, 1947 ~ January 18, 2018

Dennis Jay Charlton, 70, passed away Thursday, January 18, 2018, at McKay-Dee Hospital.

He was born November, 8, 1947, in Ogden, Utah, to Ray and LaVora Charlton. He was raised in Roy, graduated from Roy High School, and attended Weber State University.

He proudly served his country in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War, and received multiple awards and commendations, including, for three separate combat wounds, the Purple Heart with two oak leaf clusters. His military service was a significant and lifelong feature of Denny's being. In addition to his military service, he worked for, and retired from, Hill Air Force Base.

Denny loved the freedom of riding his Harley, and was passionate about trap shooting, golfing, fishing and hunting. He had a deep and abiding love for friends and family, and savored his time with them.

To friends, family and loved ones, in Denny's own words on parting: "If I don't see you in the future, I'll see you in the pasture."

Dennis is survived by two sons, Steve (Brooke), of Syracuse; Bryan of Texas; his granddaughter, Sierra, also of Texas; one brother, Jerry (Melinda), Riverdale; three sisters: Debbie (Mike) St. James, North Ogden; Pam (Dick) Andrews, West Haven; and Vicki (Steve) Harkleroad, North Ogden. He was preceded in death by his parents.

The family would like to extend their appreciation to the staff at Stonehenge for the kind care and comfort provided to Dennis over the past months. He considered Stonehenge his home and grew to love all those around him.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, January 26, 2018, at Lindquist's Roy Mortuary, 3333 West 5600 South. The family will meet with friends on Thursday, from 6 to 8 p.m. and Friday, from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m., at the mortuary.

Interment, Lindquist's Memorial Gardens of the Wasatch, 1781 Combe Road.
