Edwin Samuel Jones By: Dessie Jones, Reber My dad tried to give my mother anything he could to make things better for her and to make things comfortable for his family. He built the cabinets in our kitchen, he made the only davenport we ever had. Mother covered it with a padding and cretonne. He had as good or better gates and fence as anyone in Gunlock. He built them himself out of wood not wire. He was known by many in Gunlock to have, “Civic Pride”. He loved Gunlock and the people who lived there. He was the leader of many, ”Clean up Days”, in Gunlock. He built the benches that we sat on in church. The ward gave him the left over blue and brown paint that was used on the benches. He used it to improve the looks of our home. He painted the ceiling brown and the floor blue. It was sort of like, “Heavy, Heavy, Hangs over our Poor Heads. It maybe would have been better if he had reversed the colors. But nobody is perfect. My dad loved his family and was pleased with the good things that we did. When I was at BYU and had to have an operation for acute appendicitis we had a morning and afternoon delivery of mail. Very often I would receive a letter from my dad both times. My girlfriends accused me of having a boyfriend in Southern Utah. My dad wrote me a letter once when I was going to school in St. George. In it he said, “You may not think that I love your mother because you don’t hear me tell her that I do, but I tell her a hundred times a day how much I love her.” This meant a great deal to me and still does. I liked the way I was raised. My dad saw that we had family prayer as we knelt by our chairs around the fireplace or the table. He set a good example of going to church and being honest. Many sacrifices were made for his family. Because of the love and respect for the older people in Gunlock we were taught to call them all Uncle and Aunt whether they were are not. I never heard my parents criticize others and it bothered me to hear anyone do this. My dad loved education and we went to school on his encouragement not his money. He had little of that. Maybe it was his father, Grandpa William Jones who instilled this love for education in him because Grandpa was the first school teacher in Gunlock. I’ve been blessed with good parents, good husbands, and good families. I’ll be ever grateful for this.
