In the peaceful setting of his room at home, on a Tuesday afternoon with refreshing Midway breezes and surrounded by his wife and children, LaDell H. Bagley affectionately known as Honey, left his earthly existence July 17, 2012.
LaDell was born August 9, 1934 in Fairview, Wyoming to Leah Howell and Oliver A. Bagley. After making many happy memories with his Star Valley friends, LaDell married his sweetheart Caren Chadwick in 1955 and they were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. Shortly after their first son was born, LaDell took his young family to Southern California where he began a career with Sav-on Drug, working his way up to store manager. While in California his family grew, he took up golf and he even hit a hole-in-one! After his retirement, Dell and Caren moved to Utah, settling in Midway where he and his faithful dogs, Shadow and Lucky, could watch his horses grazing in the field while the beautiful clouds rolled by. Dell loved spending time with his family and especially loved creating opportunities for his grandchildren to create many happy memories together.
Spending time in his beautiful Star Valley was also one of his most favorite past times. He was proud of his three children, eleven grand-children and sixteen great grand-children. He always had a smile for each one and we each loved our Honey.Dell is preceded in death by his parents Oliver & Leah and siblings Ross Bagley, Marie Olson, Lorraine Bagley, Gaylen Bagley, and Leah Beth Peterson; son-in-law Lyndon Bolliger and grand-daughter Kendra Noel Smith. He is survived by his brother LaDee Bagley and his wife Caren and their children Val & Ruth Bagley, Bret & Roxanne Bagley and Ellen & Steve Hille along with ten grand-children and sixteen great grand-children.Funeral services will be held Monday, July 23, 2012 at the Midway 4th Ward building, 165 N. Center St., Midway; viewing at 9:30am, services 11:00am. Interment at Fairview Cemetery; Fairview, WY. In lieu of flowers, contributions to the Star Valley Temple fund would be wonderful!The family extends special thanks to Dell and Caren's wonderful neighbors and friends, the staff of Legacy Village Memory Care, Harmony Home Health and Hospice Care, Alpine/Encompass Hospice Care and his good friend Gene Hoopes of Dalton-Hoopes Funeral Parlor.
