[Return to Obituaries]
Joseph “Joey” LeRoy Martin Utley, age 31, passed away November 19, 2012, in St. George. He was born September 25, 1981, in Concord, California, to Irlene Rose Martin Utley and Brian Ray Utley.
Shortly after he was born, his family moved to Utah where he was raised. He attended high school at Hillcrest High in Northern Utah. He served an LDS mission to Portugal.

Joe will be remembered as the “laugh” of our party. He considered himself lucky to have such a loving mother and 5 older sisters who adored him and an older brother who treasured his friendship. His mom was his best friend and his hero. We hope Heaven appreciates his sense of humor, as much as the family did. We will continue to celebrate his life and can’t wait for the day to see him again.

He is survived by his loving mother, Irlene Utley of St. George, UT; his sisters, Sally, Barbara, Tracy, Nancy, Heidi; his brother, Erick; and many brothers and sisters –in-law, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and Grandma Martin.

Private family services will be held at 1819 S. 2780 E., St. George, UT, with a burial to follow at Tonaquint Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to your local PBS Station.
Arrangements are made under the direction of Spilsbury Mortuary, (435) 673-2454. Friends and family may sign his guestbook at www.spilsburymortuary.com.
