    David LaMar Kummer, our beloved son, father, brother, uncle, and friend, passed away at his home in Riverton on July 17, 2021. He was born March 15, 1954 to R. LaMar and Dorothy Robinson Kummer in Salt Lake City, Utah. He grew up in Hunter, Utah and graduated from Cyprus High School where he played football. Growing up, Dave loved baseball and was an avid sportsman who loved hunting and fishing with his dad, brothers, uncles and cousins.

    Dave was a jack of all trades, working many jobs throughout his life from masonry to bartending. He was quick to help when a job needed to be done. He was a hard worker but he played even harder. He loved riding horses with his buddies, playing pool at the pool hall, and getting together with his family for weddings and holidays. We will all miss his (sometimes inappropriate) jokes and his laugh. If you knew Dave, you were a friend.

    Dave is survived by his mother Dorothy (Mike) Peterson; his children Shon Kummer, Rachel (Alex) Winder, and JC Kummer and their moms, who he stayed great friends with. His siblings Connie (Rick) Ward, Bob (Pat) Kummer, Larry (Maralyn) Kummer and Gary (Cindy) Kummer; 7 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren; his girlfriend Shelly Aiello and her family; many more family members, countless friends and his loyal companion Ranger.

    He is preceded in death by his dad LaMar Kummer, his step-dad Vern Fessler, his son Casey Kummer, his grandparents and many good friends.

    A viewing will be held on Tuesday, July 27th from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at Larkin Mortuary (3688 W. 12600 S. Riverton) with a graveside service at Valley View Memorial (4335 W. 4100 S. West Valley) to follow at 2:00 pm.


    You were one of the most enjoyable people we were lucky to know. You will be missed more than you know.
