BRIGHAM CITY – Our loving uncle and friend, Vaughn Albert Chapman, 77, passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at Pioneer Care Center in Brigham City, Utah. He was born on May 24, 1937 in Salt Lake City, Utah, a son of LeRoy Jerome and Vilate Savage Chapman. He was reared and educated in Salt Lake City. Vaughn married Melba Fae Tullis on September 21, 1963 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. She preceded him in death on September 1, 1993. Vaughn was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His favorite pastime was fishing, visiting family and friends and attending the temple. He also enjoyed gardening and loved eating fried eggplant and zucchini. He is survived by three brother-in-laws, Sterling (Joyce) Purser, Brigham City, Floyd (Marta) Tullis; Terry (Nancy) Tullis; four sister-in-laws, Virginia Chapman (Howard) Houseknecht, Louise Chapman, Laraine (Charles) Walker, Patricia Tullis, and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Fae, two brothers, Vern and Kenneth Chapman, one sister, Donna Purser, one brother-in-law, Roger Tullis, one sister-in-law, Amber Tullis. Funeral services will be held on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at the Brigham City LDS 5th Ward Chapel, 420 South 800 West. A viewing will be held on Thursday from 10:00 to 10:40 a.m. at the church. Interment will be in the Salt Lake City Cemetery on Thursday at 3:00 p.m.
He was a wonderful uncle. He knew his nephews and nieces well; but knew how to fish even better. He will be greatly missed.
Dear Chapman Family,
On hearing of Vaughn's passing I was flooded with memories, among them being my little children gathered about him decades ago listening to his stories. He like to tell them and they liked to listen, a pleasure that still resides in their collective memories. Around September 21 some five decades ago my sister Fae and Vaughn were married. It's a fitting time for him to return to her now, in their untrammeled state, to share the eternities. I regret that because of a temporary medical condition I cannot attend the services. I wish you peace.
Floyd LaMond Tullis
