HELPER - August Lynn Wilstead, age 88, died March 14, 2010, in Castleview Hospital, Price, Utah. He was born May 23, 1921, in Lawrence, Emery County, Utah, to Alfred Henry Wilstead and Clara Elizabeth Staker. He married Mable Arlene Taylor, January 17, 1947. They were sealed in the Manti Temple on Jan. 17, 1997, on their 50th wedding anniversary.

Lynn grew up in Lawrence, Utah. As a young man, he worked in the CCC camps during the depression.

He later served honorably in the 1230th Infantry Regiment in the United States Army as a light machinegunner in the Pacific Theater of World War II.

For 29 months he was a squad leader in the Philippines, New Guinea, and the occupation of Japan.

He worked in various mines in Carbon County for 35 years and was a proud member of the UMWA having received a 70 year recognition pin. He also worked on the construction of Carbon Power Plant, Joe's Valley Dam, and various road projects located in Carbon, Emery, and Utah Counties. Lynn felt his family was his biggest blessing; they were the sunshine of his life. At the time of his death he was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
