    • Jed Scott Mitchell, 92, died January 18, 2016. He was born in St. George, Utah on February 14, 1923 to John Arthur and Vera Gates Mitchell. He married June Foremaster on August 6, 1949.

      Jed drove truck for many years for Milne Truck Line and later worked as a mechanic for Dixie Diesel. He enjoyed working in the cattle business with the Foremaster family and loved spending time with his family and extended family on Jeep trips, camping, and hunting.
