David Myles Spainhower
Dave Spainhower passed away March 11, 2021 in St George, Utah due to complications of Covid-19. Dave was born May 7, 1956 in Salt Lake City, the third child and only son of Myles Spainhower and Patra Lorraine Johnson Spainhower. He grew up spoiled by his two older sisters, Lynda and Carrie, and had a wonderful childhood in their Rose Park neighborhood. He always thought it was a great place to grow up. There were lots of family activities that kept the family close, including camping trips, picnics, and visiting family. Dave graduated from West High School in 1974 and a few years later started his career at Mountain Fuel, where he would work for the next 36 years, retiring in 2017. Dave married Diane Dunnigan in 1979 and in 1980 their son Ryan was born. Dave and Diane later divorced. Dave was a wonderful father to Ryan, making sure they were always busy doing things together. In 2007 Dave met Glenna Winn and it quickly became apparent to him that they were meant to be together. Glenna brought to Dave what he had been missing for many years and they were married December 12, 2012. Dave admitted they chose that day so that he could always remember their anniversary, 12-12-12. Dave and Glenna enjoyed their life together, traveling and especially four wheeling with their many friends and family. They bought a home in Hurricane which extended his riding season and gave him more friends to ride with. To Dave, life couldn’t get better than being out in his four-wheeler with his many friends and family. Dave always made sure everyone had a good time and his motto seemed to be “the more the merrier.” Shortly before he became ill with Covid Dave told Glenna how lucky he was to have such a great life. Dave was a big man, but his heart was even bigger. Dave was preceded in death by his father Myles, who passed away in 1995, and by his mother, who passed away in 2020. He was a devoted son, calling his mother every morning and visiting her every Sunday. He is survived by his wife, Glenna, his son Ryan, and his three sisters, Lynda (Tony), Carrie (Steve), and Jane (Murray), as well as many nieces and nephews, many of whom thought of him as their favorite uncle. There will not be a memorial service at this time, but the family plans to celebrate Dave’s life at a later date. The time and place will be announced on Dave’s Facebook page.
