BRIGHAM CITY - Royce Wayne Munns was tragically taken in a motorcycle crash on Monday, June 4, 2012. Royce was born on August 26, 1965 in Brigham City, Utah to James Austin (deceased) and Barbara Marble Munns. He attended and graduated from Box Elder High School. He also served a mission to the Charlotte North Carolina Mission. On October 15, 1987 Royce married his eternal sweetheart Shanne Gibbs. Their marriage was solemnized in the Jordan River Temple. They were the parents of four children. Royce was a devoted husband and father. His entire life revolved around his family. There was not anything that he would not do for them. He was a great provider and more importantly a tremendous example and the best friend of every one of his kids. He loved them more than anything and always supported them and loved them unconditionally. He was never more proud than when he could watch one of his kids play whatever sport they were involved in. He would gladly give up sleep to be in the stands cheering them on. On and off the court, field or diamond he was their greatest coach. Royce served in the Primary, Young Men's and Elders Quorum where he joked that he had helped move half of Brigham. He lived a life of service and was a true fix it man. He was never showy and never wanted recognition. Most of his service was done in camouflage with no one knowing that he had done it. He was a great example to everyone that knew him. Royce loved cars. Everything about them from shopping, to collecting and keeping them running. He loved to camp and loved to travel making a lot of great memories with his family. He was always up for a good time and loved to laugh and play with his kids. Whether it was an impromptu basketball game, dancing on YouTube or making Dutch oven dinners. Royce is survived by his wife Shanne and children Mandy, Nate, Mitzi and Sadie. He is also survived by his mother Barbara Munns and siblings Kelly (Rhonda), Suzanne (Ralph) Jones, Terie (Brett) Reese. He is also survived by his mother in law Joan Smith. He was preceded in death by his father James Austin Munns, brothers Randy and Tyler, his father in law Bryan Gibbs and his grandparents, Archie A. & Charlotte Munns, and Leslie & Iona Marble. Funeral services will be held on Saturday June 9, 2012 at the Brigham City Eighth Ward chapel, 139 East 300 North in Brigham City at 11:00a.m. Friends and family may call Friday June 8, 2012 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Gillies Funeral Chapel, 634 East 200 South, Brigham City and on Saturday at the church from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Interment will be in the Brigham City Cemetery. I will miss you Royce! I love you and will always be grateful for the example you were. I know that we are an eternal family.
