Clifford Dean Mace history

Contributor: Kestrala Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

(I received a photo copy of some type written pages that my Uncle Robert D. Mace, Clifford Mace's eldest son, had written about Grandpa Clifford Dean Mace's life. I have typed them in here with minor corrections to spelling and grammar) Clifford Dean Mace was born February 29, 1920 in Tooele Utah to Reginald Mace and Lillian Alice Jacobson. When he was a few months old his family moved to Sandy Utah because the doctor told Reginald that he had Tuberculosis and should be living on a farm. On September 13, 1921 in Sandy his brother Delbert Ray Mace was born. Two years later they moved to Bingham. When Cliff was about 4 or 5 years of age he and a girl neighbor who was about the same age, found some matches and were playing with them by out by a neighbors barn in Bingham. They were lighting them and pushing them through a knothole in the barn, the barn burned and so did some expensive equipment with included a new car. They both received the punishment they deserved. Lillian's family was against the marriage of their daughter to Reginald and therefore never thought too much of the children. On March 24, 1926 Cliffs mother Lillian gave birth to a baby girl, who was born dead, and on April 6, 1926 Lillian also died. Cliff and Deb went the live with their Grandpa and Grandma Jacobson, and Evelyn followed in June, then she went to live with Aunt Annie in August in Provo Utah and the boys stayed with their grandparents in Gunnison. On January 28, 1929 Cliffs older sister Evelyn married Brigham Young and moved to Walsburg Utah. Cliffs father Reginald was a locomotive engineer working for the Intermountain Smeltering Company and the Utah Copper Company, until he was forced to retire because of his illness, and was forced to spend most of his life in the hospital. Cliff and Deb remained in the care of unforgiving Grandparents in Gunnison. Going to school they were given a sandwich made with light bread and butter for lunch. At age 14, Cliff and his brother Delbert rand away from home and went to Walsburg to live with his sister and brother-in-law then on to Sandy to live with their Uncle Tom and Aunt Fernie Mace so they could go to school. At age 15 he and his brother hitched a ride to Salt Lake from Sandy to spend the day with their dad while he was in the hospital, while they were there he cut their hair. It was a special day for Cliff, one he spoke fondly of. After living with Uncle Tom and Aunt Fernie for a year they went back to Walsburg. On January 22, 1942, a month before his twenty second birthday, Cliff went into the Army Air Corp. On September 17, 1942 he married Mildred Bernese Fowler in Provo Utah. Then was shipped over to Egypt, which was an Italian state, in North Africa. He was assigned to a medical unit. He lost his sight on April 23, 1943 because of a grenade exploding in his face that one of his men thought to be a German hand warmer and wanted it as a souvenir. He returned home after much time in the hospital, to Provo Utah where he was actively interested in woodworking. He attended a class at Utah Vocational School in Provo. Later he moved to Ogden where he worked at Ogden Arsenal. Then moved to Orem where he raised chickens, rabbits, and had a garden. Later he turned the chicken coop into a woodworking shop, where he built children's furniture and cabinets. In May 1961 he moved to Springville, where he resided until his death in 1988. Cliff and Bernese raised 12 children together. Bernese died in June of 1967, and in late 1967 Cliff joined the Veterans of Foreign Wars. In 1977-78 he was elected Post Commander, was also selected All State Commander of that same year. Some of Cliffs hobbies were playing Harmonica and the Accordion. He was a very good father, many times he would sit and play games with his children, the game I (Robert D. Mace) most remember was what I called "Bet a nickel". I don't remember how it started, I guess there were several ways. He would say "I bet a nickel," and the child would say "I bet a dime" then dad would say "that ain't enough" then the child would say "I bet a quarter" and on and on. He also enjoyed reloading and reading. one of his favorite authors was Louis L'Amour, a western writer. He received books on tape and disk as often as the library would send them, he enjoyed his children and friends to read to him. He enjoyed fishing and hunting. I think he mostly enjoyed getting out with his family.
