PRICE - With broken hearts, Ad Mara Mary Ruggeri and Evadne Ruggeri Goodhue announce the passing on the 7th day of December 2011 of their father A. John Ruggeri, J.D.
Father, grandfather, great-grandfather, retired Navy Officer, disabled American Veteran, Emeritus member Utah Bar, lawyer, judge, senior judge, arbitrator, mediator, faculty advisor and friend.
Our father also asked us to thank all of you for giving him the honor of serving you all these years as he needed that time to be friends with you, to talk with you, to listen to you, to help you, and to love you. So we thank you all.
Our father's last request is carved into the prayer bench gracing the foot of his grave and our mother's grave. It can only be found in Cliffview Cemetery in Price.
Our hearts are healing because our father is with our mother who shared his dreams, granted his wishes, satisfied his wants, prayed with him, smiled with him, pampered him, and loved him beyond measure, but never spoiled him during the sixty years they spent together in this world. We know our mother will continue her mission in that place beyond death.
We thank you, Our Heavenly Father, for giving us these parents, who in consultation with you, knew what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. We thank you, Ad Mara Mary Ruggeri and Evadne Ruggeri Goodhue.
Funeral Mass, Monday, Dec. 12, 2011, 2 p.m. Notre Dame de Lourdes Catholic Church. Vigil service, Sunday evening 7 p.m. Mitchell Funeral Home. Family will receive friends Sunday and Monday one hour prior to service at Mitchell Funeral Home.
