SPRING GLEN - Jack Norvin Allred, 85 beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend, passed peacefully surrounded by family at the Utah Valley Specialty Hospital in Provo on Friday, July 19, 2013.
Jack was born Dec. 28, 1927 in Standardville to Charles Earl and Gladys Eleanora Jensen Allred. He was raised in Cleveland, surrounded by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
On Sept. 15, 1950 he married Hazel Brasher in the Manti LDS Temple for time and all eternity.
Jack and Hazel lived in Orem while both were attending Brigham Young University receiving their Bachelor Degrees. Upon completion of their education and receiving job offers in the Carbon County School District, they lived briefly in Helper until purchasing their beautiful homes and gardens in Spring Glen, where they have lived for over 50 years.
Jack loved his community, involving himself in many civic and religious projects. He was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many leadership capacities but his favorite was being the Bishop of the Spring Glen Ward.
For 33 years Jack was a teacher and a coach at Helper Junior High School in Helper. This was not a job for Jack, this was a passion. He loved being a teacher and nothing pleased him more than seeing one of "his students" enjoying success in their lives.
He is survived by his loving wife Hazel and their four children: Jody Allred Prettyman and Larry D Prettyman, Helper, Jenny Lynn Allred Black and Jon L Black, Spring Glen, Kenneth Joel Allred and Rachel Skinner Allred, Roy, and Jason N Allred and J'Lynn Anderson Allred, West Jordan. He is also survived by 14 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, sisters Earlene Black, Huntington, Eldeth (Greg) Wakefield, Price, brothers, Don Allred, Ferron, and Fred (DeCarma) Allred, Huntington.
Jack was preceded in death by his parents, Earl and Gladys, infant brother, Dale, brother-in-law, Ross Black and Jim Young, sister-in-law Vonnie Dee Allred and nephews, Dale Black and Jordan Hatch.
Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, July 23, 2013 at 11 a.m. at the Spring Glen LDS Church, (1985 W. 4000 N., Spring Glen). A viewing was held on Monday, July 22, 2013 from 6-8 pm at Fausett Mortuary (680 E. 100 S., Price) and on Tuesday from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. at the Church prior to the services.

Do you think the Utah Legislature should increase appropriations for public education in Utah beyond the current legislative trend in the past few years of funding only for growth in student population?
