Jim D. Arnold April 15, 1957 – January 9, 2022 

Jim was born on April 15, 1957, in La Mesa, California, to Eugene and Clara Arnold. He grew  up in Descanso, California, with two brothers and one sister. In his early childhood, Jim’s family  moved to Northern Utah, where his father worked in road construction. Jim had the experience  of growing up in some unusual and remote places such as historic “Covered Bridge” and Thistle,  UT, before the great mudslide of 1983. Jim worked for ranchers in the summertime when he  wasn’t attending school, and enjoyed rural living. 

Jim attended Spanish Fork High School, where he was accepted into the building trades  program. Soon after entering the program, he knew he had found his passion in life and wanted  to become a builder. After spending some time at a trade tech school and two years on an LDS  mission in England, Jim focused on his dream of working in construction. For a time, he worked  for RF Christianson Construction Company, mostly building LDS churches and working on  other commercial projects. Soon after, he studied and tested for his Utah Contractor’s License,  which he obtained, and kept active throughout his life. When the Utah building industry  slumped, Jim was encouraged to move to Arizona by his lifelong friend, Gary Bartholomew. So in 1983, Jim bought a fifth wheel trailer, hooked it up to his red pickup truck, and moved to  Page, AZ. He became self-employed in 1984.  

An avid hunter and outdoorsman, Jim loved the mountains his entire life. He spent his 20’s camping and hunting with friends, and despite how busy his future would become, Jim always found time to head up to the mountains and enjoy what he loved doing best. He loved the sound  of elk bugling, or watching a bear forage for berries, or the stalking of a mountain lion. When he wasn’t working and building, he was out enjoying nature. Jim had a passion for photographing 

wildlife in the peaceful, remote places he would hike to. This passion persisted, and later in his  life, in 2004, Jim would build a cabin in Boulder Utah, with his lifelong partner, Lynn Vogel. Together, the two went on to purchase a 40-acre inholding on Boulder Mountain known as Baker’s Pasture, in the Dixie National Forest. 

After settling in Page and working for several construction companies, Jim went after his  Arizona Contractor’s licenses, and reorganized his Utah and Arizona licenses. In February of  1988, with the love of his life, Jim founded Lake Powell Construction & Development, Inc. Together, Jim and Lynn built their life and their company, focusing on commercial, bonded  work, and occasionally building custom homes. 

Jim always enjoyed historic restoration work, and design-build projects. He was well-known for  accepting challenging and non-typical projects. Some of these included floating a mini-excavator  down the Colorado River to Phantom Ranch in 2013, and working in the bottom of the Grand  Canyon where men and materials had to be helicoptered in. Men and materials were barged to  the land-locked Dangling Rope Marina, and other remote places around Arizona, Utah, and Lake  Powell, where if you forgot a tool you needed for the job… well you’d just have to get creative. 

He built two significant floating projects for ARAMARK on Lake Powell – the Latitude 37 Restaurant, Store, and Offices at Wahweap Marina, and the Halls Crossing Marina Store and  Snack Bar. These projects were constructed on the water at State-Line Launch Ramp and towed to their permanent floating locations on Lake Powell. Jim performed work for many school  districts all across Northern Arizona, including building the 800-seat, George Gardner  Performing Arts Center, and Classrooms in Holbrook, AZ, for which he received an award in  Southwest Contractor Magazine. 

Jim placed great value in donating his time and resources to projects within his community.  Through Lake Powell Construction, Jim donated time and work to the Page Regional Domestic  Violence Shelters; other significant projects he contributed to and had a major role in was the  construction of the Page Veterans Memorial outside City Hall, and Grandview Knoll Park.  Additionally, Jim donated time and resources to the local 4H grounds, and various Canyon Club 


Throughout his lifetime, Jim received many awards and affiliations and was recognized as an  expert in his field. He was sought after time and time again for his value engineering, problem  solving, and negotiating skills. Jim was the first non-Flagstaff contractor to become president of  Northern Arizona Building Association (NABA) in 2002, later becoming a life director. He was  appointed as a delegate to represent Arizona for the National Association of Home Builders 

(NAHB); under this role, he would meet with congressmen in Washington DC, and other places across the nation, to discuss problems facing the modern builder. He handled these  responsibilities the same way he handled building… cheerfully, and with all he had to offer.

Life Tracks


Marsha recently passed away, peacefully in her home in Washington, Utah of natural causes. She may have left this earth but will never leave our hearts.

Marsha’s family moved to Page in 1958. Her dad, Owen Mangum, worked as an Electrical Superintendent on the Glen Canyon Dam. Marsha is the oldest of six girls, who kept her mom, Adalena Mangum, very busy. They moved away from Page after the completion of the dam when Marsha was entering her senior year of high school.  After graduation, Marsha married her high school sweetheart and returned to Page. A few years later, she married her California Casanova John Newburn. They had one daughter, Kristi. John unexpectedly passed away in 1989 when Marsha was 40 years old.  Marsha was fortunate enough to find love two more times with long-time partner Andy Anderson and ultimately her soul-mate Jack Conley, whom she married in 2011. Both preceded her in death.

Marsha loved her career and had an extensive variety of skills.  She was known for her dedicated perseverance and unfaltering work ethic.  She worked at Canyon Tours in her late teen years and then became one of the youngest Justices of the Peace at age 26. She officiated countless wedding ceremonies in her two terms as JP and loved her position in the judicial system. Afterwards, she became an Escrow Officer and Office Manager for Minnesota Title. She continued to advocate for peace and welfare in the community as Admin Assistant to Police Chiefs Richard Obergh and Wayne Wright. She then transitioned into the Information Technology Specialist working alongside Officer/IT Manager Mike Bergner, updating the 911 and Dispatch system and database.  She retired as the Operating Manager at Reddy Ice and as her husband Jack’s Assistant in his business, Micron Machine. During her career, she also served on many boards and was a member of Order of Eastern Star and of Beta Sigma Phi.

Marsha loved to play as much as she loved to work. Some of her favorite activities with friends were catching some rays in the Lake Powell sunshine, water skiing, jet skiing, boating and swimming. She also enjoyed cross-country snow skiing and snowmobiling in the great outdoors. She absolutely loved to fly and flew as co-pilot immeasurable times with her pilot friends and husband in hot air balloons, helicopters and airplanes and even flew over the outback of Australia, landing in remote villages along the way. She survived Whitewater rafting the wild Colorado River and skydiving over amazing Lake Powell. She traveled across the country many times, and to Canada, Hawaii, Mexico, and the Panama Canal to name a few. She was an adventure nut.

She very much enjoyed her retirement years spending as much time as possible with her adored mom Adalena and sisters Vicki, Terry (David), Cheryl (Mark), Lynna (David), Kim and many nieces and nephews in Oklahoma and with her daughter Kristi and son-in-law Lino, her beloved grandsons Ashton, Tanner (Kendra) and Keaton (Alison), great-granddaughters, Ayla, Aria, Anna and great-grandson Daemon.

She will always be remembered for her incredible strength, unmatched dedication, loving support, and far surpassing willingness to be a confidante to all her friends and family.

We love you Marsha (aka Mom, Grandma, and GG)!

“Cherish Yesterday, Laugh Hard Today. Love Truly and Forgive Quickly!”

A celebration of life with immediate family was held in Oklahoma.

Louis “Lou” Anthony Napolitan

Louis “Lou” Anthony Napolitan of Page, Arizona passed away after a long fight with Alzheimer’s disease on 08/28/2020. Lou was born in Stamford, CT on April 25th, 1933 and was raised in Washington, PA by John & Julienne Napolitan with younger brother John “Pat” Nestor Napolitan and sister Carol Napolitan-Haffke.

Lou joined the US Army in 1951 and was honorably discharged in 1953, serving most of his military career in Korea. He spent the next several years working in a glass factory, coal mining with his father, and working several odd-jobs to help out where he could.

He moved to Denver, Colorado in the early 60’s and took a job with Burlington Northern Railroad working as a mechanic “car knocker”. He married his first wife Maria Panfila Ojeda. Maria passed in 1974 and left Lou with 5 loving stepchildren Theresa Ojeda, Lauro Kinney, Dalia (Alfredo) Estrada, Armando (Noelia) Ojeda, Isolia Hernandez  and one of their own Tony (Anita) Napolitan).

Lou met Ruth Ellen Oswald in 1974 and moved to Page, Arizona in September of 1975 after accepting a job with the Navajo Generating Station as a Railroad Mechanic. Lou married Ruth on October 7th, 1978 and adopted his 7th child Travis (Belinda) Napolitan. Lou and Ruth had 4 more children Vicki (Carl) Allen, John (Leslie) Napolitan, Patrick (Amanda) Napolitan, and Philip (Lesa) Napolitan.

Lou lived life to its fullest and left nothing on the table. He led an active lifestyle enjoying walking, working on vehicles, cutting firewood, hunting, fishing, and sharing stories about all the above. Lou enjoyed sharing his experiences with his family and friends, and would often lend a helping hand to complete strangers. Lou was a true example of selflessness and kindness to all who knew him.

Lou is survived by his wife, 11 children, 33 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren, and 5 great-great grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his first wife, parents, and his siblings.

The family would like to thank friends of the family, Joann Mann for her love and care, Michelle Smith (Zion’s Way Hospice), and all of the doctors, and staff at Page Hospital, Dixie Regional Medical Center, and the Wentworth at the Meadows.

Cheryl Machacerk

It truly is hard to say goodbye. Cheryl Machacerk passed away June 10 in Page, Arizona after battling cancer with all she had. She was 73 years old. Cheryl was the daughter of Dwayne and NaeDene Machacek. She is survived by her sister Vicki, brother Mark, husband Dail, son Teo, grandson Trey and many beloved nieces and nephews as well as countless friends. Cheryl grew up in Buhl and graduated from Buhl High School in 1965. She embraced life and thought of it as an adventure. She crisscrossed the country many times. She took a barge to Europe to drink in the culture. She visited her brother on his fruit farm in the Dominican Republic. She braved the jungles of Central America. For a time she even called an uninhabited island in Alaska home. In her 20’s Cheryl got her nursing degree working in the geriatric ICU. During her 40’s she went back to school to get her master’s degree in social work at UNLV. It was a career that allowed her selflessness to shine by helping others and righting many wrongs. 36 years ago she married her “person” Dail. They were the yin to each other’s yang. Together, they navigated the world, always enjoying “today” while looking forward to tomorrow. It is a partnership that lives on in Dail’s soul. Cheryl loved being a mom and had an incredibly strong bond with her son Teo. She was so proud of him and cherished their weekly phone call and trips to California to see him and her grandson Trey. Cheryl could be the life of the party with her quick wit and sense of theater. She adored her friends and always looked forward to trips to Idaho to see them. The laughter is a bit quieter now that she’s gone, but her spirit is infinite in those who loved her. The family would like to give a special hug and thank you to Cheryl’s sister Vicki. Vicki pushed pause on life taking Cheryl into her home during her final weeks. They were not only sisters but best friends. Cheryl left this world peacefully with Vickie by her side. Cheers to a well lived life Cheryl! The world is indeed lonelier without you in it.

Alan Bennett Anderson

Alan Bennett Anderson, aka “Andy” to many of his friends, “Gramps” to his grandkids, and “GG-Pa” to his great grandkids, has officially hung his “Gone Fishing” sign on the door, at age 77. He retired on February 2, 2020 to the great outdoors to forever camp, fish and sit around the campfire telling stories of an incredible life well lived!

We are sure that his stories will range from great times as a kid, catching 107 fish in 4 days at his grandparent’s lake; his honored service with the United States Marine Corps Reserve; his young, fast days charming women with all his charisma; countless hours playing pool with his buddies; his 30 plus years as a professional lineman (for the phone company, not the NFL), retiring as network technician in 2002; to all the joys of being a beloved son, brother, uncle and grandpa.

He will be missed beyond measure for his generous hosting abilities, his kindness, and his exceptional dress attire that usually consisted of a bright Hawaiian shirt and shorts of an opposite color. He had quite the skill of napping on the couch while holding the remote and his cocktail in hand without spilling a drop. He wore many hats: as a fearless, professional gambler betting on anything and everything, always giving it his all; a gourmet chef, cooking up exceptional meals; a very talented botanist producing the most beautiful flowers; and a card shark, who loved staying up way too many nights after midnight playing cards in the dining room with family and friends.

Alan was a loving son to Seymour and Rosalie, an adored (most of the time) older brother, and a caring and much loved uncle, Gramps and GG-Pa. He could give a good stink-eye when displeased and a heart-melting smile when happy. He always remembered important dates and called on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and birthdays. His calls will be sorely missed!

He has left behind so many amazing friends and a loving family including his two sisters, his brother, his brother-in-law, six nieces, five nephews and eight great-nephews and nieces. Thru his life’s journey, he also picked up a few strays that he found along the way, currently known as his “kiddos,” his step-daughter and son-in-law, two very loved grandsons and his adored three great grandchildren… along with a whole bunch of stuff that he won’t need on his fishing adventures, such as way too many rolls of electrical tape; used for everything from fixing truck parts, household fixtures and bandaging wounds.

Thank you Alan, Uncle Alan, Andy, Gramps and GG-Pa for the over-the-top love you gave to us all! We too, will forever share stories of our great adventures with you. LOVE YOU MORE!

There will be a memorial fiesta in his honor, with family and friends, on August 15, 2020 in Page, Arizona. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favorite charity, Best Friends Animal Society, or make a bet at your favorite casino, in his memory. If you would like to attend, or would like more info, please contact Kristi at [email protected].

Christopher Edwin Vogel
February 2, 1975 – January 8, 2020

Christopher Edwin Vogel, 44, of Page, Arizona, passed away on January 8, 2020, at his home in Page.

Chris was born in Yuma, Arizona, to Lynn and Albert Vogel, Jr. on February 2, 1975. In 1980 the family moved to Page when Chris’s father accepted the manager position with the telephone company. Chris (nicknamed Jiff by his friends) attended school in Page, graduated from Page High School and went on to attend Northern Arizona University. After college, Chris went into the cellular business in Flagstaff, and then the Phoenix area for several years at Alltel Corporate. He returned home to Page and went to work for the family construction company as an administrative assistant. In 2010, he attained his swimming pool certification and formed Jiffy Pools, LLC in 2015. He also continued to work part time for Lake Powell Construction. His success became well known as “The Pool Guy” and could pretty much troubleshoot and solve any problems associated with spas and pools. He was always so proud that he could balance water to sparkle like diamonds, and temperatures to a perfect ninety two degrees if that’s what you wanted.

Patricia Ott came into his life seven years ago and became the love of his life and was readily adopted by all in the family. He loved her dearly as she did him as well. He never hesitated to say, “I love you,” on a daily basis to those closest to him; and we will miss his humor, and sometimes his philosophical ways.

His close buddy was Kevin Hancock, who passed away with him on the same day. They each built a classic 2-cycle three wheeler in the garage from the ground up. Many hours were spent fine tuning everything to perfection, with Supercross stimulating the process on the large screen tv. There was more than one “midnight test ride” that woke up the entire neighborhood.

He enjoyed the lake and riding his bike on desert runs with his friends. Chris played a mean game of racquetball and organized a team of “A” league players for racquetball nights in the company racquetball court .

Chris is preceded in death by his father, Albert Vogel, Jr. and his grandmother, Janina Borg.

He is survived by his mother, Lynn; his stepfather Jim Arnold; his partner, Patricia Ott; his brother, Jim Boswell (Andrea); his sister, Sara Vogel Barney (AJ); and three nieces and two nephews.

A public viewing will be held on Friday, January 17th from 10 – 11 AM; Funeral services will be held from 11 – 12 noon at Faith Bible Chapel,
551 San Francisco Road, with the Pastor Manny Parks officiating. Cremation will follow, at a later date, with interment at the Page City Cemetery. Arrangements are being handled by Mosdell Mortuary, Kanab, UT.

The family wishes to extend our sincerest appreciation to the Page Fire Department EMT’s for their expertise and tireless efforts; and to the Page Police Department for their kindness and respect of family during this difficult time.

Robert Lynn Bingham
November 24, 1931 – January 6, 2020

Robert Lynn Bingham, loving father and rebel comedian, passed away peacefully on Monday, January 6, 2020.
Bob was born on November 24, 1931 in Wellsville, Ohio to George Preston and Agnes (Woodruff) Bingham. Bob grew up in Wellsville, and with his natural athletic ability and tons of practice became a star basketball player for the high school team. With offers on the table, he chose the generous scholarship from the University of Pittsburgh.
He left Pitt after one year to join the Navy. During bootcamp, he was discovered by and played for the Great Lakes Naval basketball team. During active duty, he served as a Machinist’s Mate on board the USS Neptune. Upon completion of his military service, Bob was asked by the great Bevo Francis of the Harlem Globetrotters to play on the opposing traveling team: the Boston Whirlwinds. His eyes would light up telling stories about a Trotter saying “Bob, you sure make me look good!” or when his manager would say “Bob, these people paid good money to see the Globe Trotters. They’re not here to see you”.
While on tour, Bob became lovestruck and married Nancy Hurley in 1955. Together they had three children: Bob Jr, Tim and Connie (deceased). His excellent math skills led him to a new career as a metallurgical technician testing titanium in its infancy. As the titanium work was ending and seeking higher wages, Bob moved to Page, Arizona in 1960 to work building Glen Canyon Dam as a carpenter. His attempts to persuade Nancy to move out west were unsuccessful.
He met Jo Ellen Ward and married her in 1962. Bob and Jo Ellen had three children: Sara, David and Luke. All of these kids will attest to a “storybook childhood” which has chapters involving Face Canyon, Elm St and learning to dig a proper ditch (if you’re lucky with a Bobcat).
During his 60 years in Page, he also owned a lumber yard; contracted with Navajo Nation to build homes, schools, gyms, and provide on-the-job training; worked to build the Navajo Generating Station; owned his own successful construction business (Gronk); and supervised construction crews for large projects in the Lake Powell area. He eventually retired in 1996 and when asked what he did for a living, he would playfully reply “I am building the West.”
In 1990, he was lovestruck again with Inta Galejs and they married. Together they enjoyed Lake Powell, their dogs Rocky and Boris, and many friends in the Page area.
Bob was known by his friends to live big and make life as fun as possible. A founding member of “The Varsity” golf group, Bob enjoyed the companionship, the BS, the game, and all the crazy side bets. He was a fierce competitor in basketball, tennis, ping pong, golf, bridge, bowling and just about anything. He was both mischievous and good-hearted to all. He had a way of being the center of attention in a room of people. His enthusiasm for life was infectious.
Bob was quick to help others by teaching his trade, lending money to those who asked, and providing jobs to those in need. Bob loved the people and city of Page and through his generosity he contributed to numerous civic projects.
Bob is survived by Robert Jr. (Paige), Tim (Linda), Sara Peterson (Robert), David (Judie Scalise), Luke (Penny Irvine), 8 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.
A memorial celebration of life will be held in Page, AZ at the Gone West Family Restaurant on February 22, 2020, 2:00-5:00PM to share memories and stories.

Dianne Powers

Dianne-CafeDianne Virginia Powers entered the eternal on October 12th, 2015.  Dianne is survived by the families of Kimberli Beck Lee, Randy & Lori Savage, Colorado River Discovery, her “Boys of Summer”, her beloved pups Casey and Cissy, and the hundreds of souls that ever received a life changing “Dianne Hug” from her steadfast and warm arms.

Dianne was born on September 23rd, 1953 in Los Angeles, CA to Samuel and Leona Nardone.  She found and married her Rock, Phil Powers, in 1983 and began a partnership that should have been written about as one the great stories of our time.

Dianne and Phil never had biological children; how could they.  Their lives were spent nurturing, supporting, and assisting hundreds of people on the way to their true potential.

Dianne’s methodology… She had the unique ability to instantly find a person’s budding importance.  This impending greatness was often buried under a concealed wall of uncertainty, ignorance, and fear.  She then made it her mission to bulldoze that wall, and find that light she knew was present, for the whole world to see.  Her methods were always unique to the individual, but, all included a healthy mixture of strong hugs, intent listening, telling it like it is  and chocolate.  Dianne was always more open-handed than any person should be.  She would do this by being incredibly approachable, giving of her own time, giving of her own money, and working a problem of another, until a viable solution was found. Dianne’s process would almost always make for a better individual in the long run.

Dianne was the queen of the idiom.  The lights are on, but, no one’s home. The road less travelled.  There are plenty of fish in the sea.  More than monkey’s love bananas.  Not a day went by that one wasn’t being spoken.  The same idiom would have different meanings based on the delivery from her tone, vigorous hand motions, and facial expressions.  These words often made light of a serious message she was trying to get the recipient to understand.

Dianne’s quick wit and charm also revealed some of the best nicknames of people in her life.  Handles such as Sissy, Bug, Manute, LP, Sweet Knees, Mayo, Colt, Sox, Double Ott, Cope, Dr. Slim, and Rent a Husband, just to name a few.  If you were given a nickname, it meant that you could count on Dianne to keep you in her thoughts on a regular basis, and that you would always be a part of her life.  The handles above, were just a sliver of those delivered throughout the years of people that she welcomed into her life.

Dianne’s life was filled with love that was 100% manifested by all of her intangible qualities.  She will be missed by all who met her, and it is impossible that her spirit not continue through the many that she affected with her benevolence, charisma, and adoration.

We love you more than monkey’s love bananas, Dianne!

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Page Animal Hospital Angel Fund or Page Animal Adoption Agency.

Erik was a straight A student, active in many extracurricular activities. He played soccer, football, baseball, and wrestled. His favorite sport was baseball and his favorite team was the Los Angeles Dodgers. His favorite football team was the New England Patriots. Family was the most important thing to him. He was close with all of his family and valued keeping in touch with them.

We will remember Erik as a selfless, fiercely loyal family member and friend who stood up for the underdog and was easy to get along with; for his quick wit, his love of Cup ‘O Noodles, and his great dance moves; who valued his education, but had favorite teachers, not just favorite subjects. He gave 110% in everything he did and lived by the motto, “I will not disappoint myself in anything I do”.  His dedication and determination led him to strive for excellence.

Erik was an inspiration to and loved by all he encountered.  His goal was to make a difference in the world and leave a legacy in his wake. The overwhelming love and support shown from the community is proof that Erik has accomplished his goal.

A celebration of Erik’s life will be held at the CAB on Saturday, February 21st, at 12:00 p.m. A balloon release and potluck will follow.

In 1995, Phil started Waterworks Boat Services as a one man show and serviced boats and did small interior remodeling and upgrade projects on houseboats. As his business grew he had to hire help, so he and his 6 “sons” went out and made history. His greatest pleasure was mentoring his boys and giving them the chance to express their ideas, right or wrong, and allowing them to learn. No day was perfect, but everyday counted. They were not employees to him. They were his family.
After 5 years, and as they do, his crew went off to explore a bigger world than Page, so Phil traded his owner hat for an employee hat. He continued to work on Lake Powell for 7 more years until he suffered a career ending injury and additional health challenges in 2011 . His recovery was a ongoing battle with numerous setbacks.
His biggest hobbies included puttering around in his shop and anything with tires on it. He loved his sand rail and Razor and his happiest moments were spent with our dear friends Randy and Lori and other close friends at the sand dunes in Yuma. He also enjoyed “circling the wagons ” as he called it and just visiting with other members of the boating businesses in Page. He was a helper to all if needed, but may have appeared gruff to others. His only focus was to be available if anyone needed anything and he truly enjoyed all the people of Page he encountered. You could find him many times just visiting with other work crews at his storage facility to feel he was still part of the deal. His daily visit to the Ranch House Grille for breakfast with “his girlfriends” was a treat for him. He spent hours at Boston’s just talking to the crew. His life was complete by his 2 beloved Golden Retrievers Casey & Cissy and they kept him company throughout his recovery. In 2012, he and his wife did the dream vacation , traveling to North Carolina and visiting every Nascar shop. Sundays were for Nascar , Dale Jr. and nothing else.
Phil is survived by his wife of 30 years Dianne, his mother Ida, sister Jeannie, son Jason and numerous and beloved friends. His wish to everyone would be to live every minute like it is your last and be honest with everyone, even if it may not be what needs to be heard.

A celebration of Phil’s life will take place in Page, Az on a date to be determined shortly.

“Honey, I will love you forever and miss you like crazy. I am only happy that there is no more pain. You are finally free to “go fast” with the angels”
