Anniversary – Bruce and Evelyn Giles


Bruce and Evelyn Giles will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on Sept. 13, 2014. They were married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on Sept. 17, 1964. Bruce, the son of Arthur and Norine Giles, was born in Ogden, Utah, and raised in Morgan, Utah. He attended Morgan schools, graduating from Morgan High School and LDS Seminary in 1960. He served in the LDS Alaskan-Canadian mission. He attended Utah State and Weber State College. He worked at Intermountain Precision Built Homes, Volvo White Motors and for Morgan School District for the past 22 years. He is still hard at it and kiddingly states he hasn’t graduated yet. Evelyn, the daughter of Edward and Shirley Dana, was born in Burley, Idaho, and moved with her family to Ogden when she was 9 years old. She attended Ogden schools and graduated from Ben Lomond High School and LDS Seminary in 1964. She went on to work at IRS, Hill Field and Morgan County, retiring in 2006. They have spent their entire married life in Milton on a farm. They live in the home Bruce’s father was born in, having remodeled it several times. They raised a family of three sons and one daughter. They have been active in the LDS church all their married lives and both have received and served in numerous callings. They served an Ogden Inner City Mission to the Eccles Park Ward. Evelyn has spent a lot of time doing family history work. Bruce loves sports and he did love hunting until it got to be more work than fun, and loves following his grandchildren in their sport activities. His uncle Homer Randall introduced him at a young age to flat track and cutter racing. He spent years of his life in that pursuit. From that first blind date, engagement and wedding, Evelyn says that she would like a nickel for every time she has driven Weber Canyon. She loves traveling short distances visiting family, friends and shopping. They welcomed three sons and a daughter into their family: Blake and Jen Giles, Marlene and Whitney Judd, David and Adriana Giles, and Clay and Jenny Giles. They are the loving grandparents to their 12 grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. Bruce especially loves to go to Maddox, a love which he has passed on to his family. So the family decided to have a Saturday night family gathering at the Maddox Lodge in Perry, Utah, to celebrate their parents’ marriage.
