Cloyd Jay Jessop was reunited with the love of his life on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2020.
Cloyd was born December 22, 1930 in Millville, Utah. He died at the age of 89 in the same room he was conceived and born in. He lived his early life running-amuck in Millville with his countless cousins in crime.
In 1951, he and Beth Haslam eloped and started their 65-year adventure together. He was a loving husband, a father that lead by example, adored his grandkids, crazy strong, and not your average-hunting companion. Cloyd left an impression wherever he went with his charming personality.
Preceded in death by his parents: Verlo and Thelma Jessop, wife Beth Jessop. Survived by: sister Nelda Roskelly, sons Jay (Charyn), Randy (Pam), Carl (Chris), Jimmy (Valerie), Kevin, and finally a daughter Peggy (Jeff) Neagle and oops, Pattie (Jerry) Fox, 17 grandkids, 32 great-grandkids and 2 great-great-grandkids.
A viewing will be held Friday evening, February 21, 2020 at Russon Mortuary, 295 North Main Street, Bountiful, Utah. Graveside services will be at the Millville Cemetery at 1:00pm on Saturday, February 22, 2020. In honor of Cloyd, please join the family in wearing farm casual attire during our graveside services.
