Contributor: finnsh Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Starr Lewis Brockbank, 89, of Spanish Fork, passed away on October 3, 2004 at Cambry House in Payson. He was born on November 18, 1914 in Spanish Fork, Utah, to Joseph Archibald Brockbank and Fern Wilhelmina Lewis, the 2nd of their seven children. He married Mary Alice Hawkins on October 13, 1933 and they had one son, Starr Hawkins. Mary Alice later passed away. He married Grace Taylor on January 15, 1935 and they had one daughter, Sandra Jean. They were later divorced. He married Enid Marie Roberts on July 29, 1939 and they had four children, David Oran, Steven Clifton, Frances Marie, and Fern Ann. Enid recently passed away after 64 years of marriage. All three marriages were later solemnized in the Manti and Provo LDS Temples. Starr graduated from Spanish Fork High School, where he was active in many activities, including school council and being a member of the 5-person state championship track team when just a sophomore. He later attended Brigham Young University, where he was a member of the Viking Social Unit. A dedicated scout, Starr, along with his four brothers, earned his Eagle Scout Award. Starr moved with Enid to California, where he spent many years working for the California State Division of Architecture and Construction, using his skills and talent to build many schools and other important public works, including the Rossmore retirement community in the Bay Area. Starr was also the construction superintendent for the first LDS meetinghouse in Concord, California. After his retirement in 1978, Starr and Enid moved back to Utah, residing first in Alpine, and then returning to his hometown, Spanish Fork. Throughout his life, Starr has always been a true friend to everyone he met. He translated his enthusiasm for life and compassion for people into a lifetime of community and church service. He served as president of the Spanish Fork Kiwanis Club, was an active part of the Spanish Fork senior center, and was instrumental in the creation and construction of the Spanish Fork Memorial Park on Main Street, which he built with the help of his sons David and Steven, and many other friends and volunteers. Another talent Starr magnified was remodeling homes. Along with his wife Enid, he restored many homes to a new life, including turning the 3rd oldest adobe house in Spanish Fork into an award-winning showpiece. Starr was a dedicated member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served in many callings, including Branch President of the Lake Tahoe Area. One of his dearest memories was the time he spent as a stake missionary in Concord, sharing his testimony of the gospel with many friends. Starr was always interested in other peoples happiness and welfare, and he has left behind many dear family members and friends throughout the world. Survivors include one son and three daughters; a daughter-in-law; brothers; 17 grandchildren; 44 great grandchildren; and 10 great great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents; his wives Mary Alice, Grace, and Enid; 2 sons, David and Starr Brockbank; daughters-in-law Janet and Mary Ann Brockbank; son-in-law Howard Armstrong; brothers Mark and Carl Brockbank; sisters Jean Mouritsen and Lucille Rupert; grandson Cal Armstrong; great-grandsons Tory R. Armstrong, Kaleb McDonald, and Matthew and Gregory Rodriguez. Daily Herald, October 5, 2004 (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=9742737)

Life timeline of Starr Lewis Brockbank

Starr Lewis Brockbank was 15 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.

Nagasaki is the capital and the largest city of Nagasaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu in Japan. The city's name, 長崎, means "long cape" in Japanese. Nagasaki became a centre of colonial Portuguese and Dutch influence in the 16th through 19th centuries, and the Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region have been recognized and included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Part of Nagasaki was home to a major Imperial Japanese Navy base during the First Sino-Japanese War and Russo-Japanese War.

Starr Lewis Brockbank was 49 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
Starr Lewis Brockbank was 58 years old when Vietnam War: The last United States combat soldiers leave South Vietnam. The Vietnam War, also known as the Second Indochina War, and in Vietnam as the Resistance War Against America or simply the American War, was a conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. It was the second of the Indochina Wars and was officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies; the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States, South Korea, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies. The war is considered a Cold War-era proxy war by some US perspectives. The majority of Americans believe the war was unjustified. The war would last roughly 19 years and would also form the Laotian Civil War as well as the Cambodian Civil War, which also saw all three countries become communist states in 1975.
