Dennis George Moffat joined his Family in Heaven on Feb. 15, 2020 in Sandy, UT. He was born in Murray, UT on Jan. 13, 1939 to Lucille Lynn and George Scofield Moffat.
He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Southern States Mission, following which he married Karen Anderson on June 18, 1965 in the Los Angeles Temple. Together, they had five daughters and one son, who, in turn, gave him two granddaughters and nine grandsons.
A gifted athlete, he was on the freshman football team at Brigham Young University and ran track at Los Angeles Pierce College, as well as being an avid softball, handball, and racquetball player. He was especially proud of being a founding member of the Cougar Club, BYU’s athletic booster organization.
In 1959, he worked at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory on the hydrogen bomb and witnessed two tests but spent most of his work life in account management.
He instilled in his family a love for and reverence for the outdoors and a love for education as all his children have earned college degrees, with three of them earning graduate degrees. Later in life, he took great joy in working at the Los Angeles and Draper Temples. To the end he was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, a BYU sports fan, and an incorrigible jokester.

He is survived by his wife, Karen, and his children Cami (Jared) Munk, Kael (Julie) Moffat, Kierstin (Cory) Misterek, Kari (Ben) Mecham, Brooke Moffat, and Erin (Kyle) Sawyer, as well as his grandchildren: Richard, Maura, Rhys, Redge, Parker, Ellie, Nathan, Bryan, Collin, Oliver, and Jackson. Additionally, he is survived his brother, Murray Scott Moffat and his sister Glenda Ward.
