Solomon Jack Gardner\n\nSolomon Jack Gardner, 17, passed away on June 21st in the town of Emery, Utah. He was born on January 19th, 1993 in Taylorsville, Utah to David Jacob Gardner and Lisa Ann Vogl.\n\nHe is survived in death by his parents and his siblings Jason, Erin, Lisa, Andrew, Seth, Caroline, and Sophia.\n\nSolomon's life was typified in his name, which in Hebrew means "peace". He epitomized the words of James, he was "first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy" (James 3:17) He was quiet, but often displayed words of wisdom and understanding far beyond his short years in mortality.\n\nA talented musician, Solomon played the piano and the bass guitar and was a blossoming vocalist; was a member of a band with his Uncle Cyrus, his brothers and his cousins and a part of the Taylorsville High School Jazz Band, and the Madrigals. Solomon listened to classical music in the car, and could play any Nintendo theme music on the piano from Mario Brothers to Tetris at the drop of a hat.\n\nSolomon had bright red hair and stood well over six feet tall, marking him out in a crowd, but equally bright was his mischievous smile that flashed in the presence of friends. He loved the outdoors and especially loved fishing. Solomon achieved the rank of Eagle Scout and studied the art of Kung Fu for many years, rising to the level of instructor. Solomon your absence is sorely felt by all. We love you, and anxiously await the day when we will meet again at the feet of our Savior.\n\nFuneral services will be Friday, June 25, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. at the River View Ward LDS Chapel, 1365 West 4800 South, Taylorsville, UT.
