George Robert Ault

George Robert Ault passed away peacefully July 3, 2022 at home surrounded by his family. Robert was born prematurely on March 21, 1929 on a snowy morning in Salt Lake City, but lived a long, happy and eventful life until the age of 93.

He is survived by Janice Patricia Ovard Ault his wife of 65 years, his three sons Matthew Robert Ault (Monique Ebell Ault), Bradley Alan Ault (Nanette Frazier Ault), Gregory Steven Ault and a sister Shirla Dawn Burrows (Marv Burrows), 9 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents George Clifford Ault, Myrtle Rees Ault and a brother Keith Kelson.

Robert went on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints serving in Australia and was able to travel the world on his return. He served in many church callings including several Bishoprics and stake callings. He also served his country in the US Signal Corps during the Korean War.

Robert dedicated his life to education serving for 34 years as a teacher and, after obtaining a Master’s Degree from BYU, as an administrator for the Murray School District. Robert was a skilled problem solver and coworkers came to him secure in the knowledge that he could find a solution to any situation.

Robert loved his family and his greatest joy was spending time with them. He kept journals detailing every adventure he had with his family and he enjoyed being able to go back and relive those adventures time and again. He was truly loved and will be greatly missed.

Our family would like to express their appreciation for the compassionate service his son Greg unselfishly provided Robert especially during these last difficult weeks.

    To those who read this note of appreciation for “Bob” Ault, during his mortal ministers, know that he and Janice touched our heart for many positive reasons.

    As with all good saints and others, their influence will be felt long after their earthly probation has been completed and in that influence their life will be remembered and celebrated for the good they have done.

    “Bob” you will be missed by those of us who have been uplifted by your testimony and character.
