HUNTINGTON - Douglas Clare Jackson, Sr., age 67, passed away unexpectedly May 13, 2012 at the LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City.

He was born Aug. 7, 1944 in Ogden to Earl Sylvester and Lottie Gomm Jackson.

On May 20, 1972, he married the love of his life Rose Oliver and they made their home in West Valley where Doug owned and operated the Jackson Meat Processing Company. Doug was always a cowboy at heart and while living in the big city he began raising horses and Chariot racing. He was very successful in this venture and for five consecutive years he qualified for the World Chariot Races in Ogden. Some of his most memorable memories were the photo finishes that he was able to share with his family and friends.

After his retirement, the family moved to Elmo where he loved working the land and improving his property. Anyone that knew Doug, knew that he was a relentless worker who took great pride in anything that he done. He loved farming, remodeling, riding his side by side, and hunting with his family. Doug will always be remembered for his work ethic, generosity and love for his family and the outdoors.

He is survived by his loving wife, Rose Jackson, Huntington; daughter, Melinda (Kenny) Gill, Price; son, Douglas Clare (Mindy) Jackson, Castle Dale; eight grandchildren, Amanda (Charles), Devin, Morgan (Sean), Angela and Ben, Kenny, Wayne, Savanna and Charley; two great-granddaughters, Brielle and Cassandra; three sisters and two brothers, Kaye Robinson, Ogden, Charlotte Phillips, Salt Lake, Marvilynn (Dale) Long, Kemmerer, Wyo., George (Annette) Beeton, Apache Junction, Ariz., Rex Phillips, Philippines; sisters-in-law, Gladys (Kevin) Armstrong, West Valley, Cheryal (Terry) Kopec, Lake Point.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers, Ron Jackson, Larry and William Phillips.
