Royce Wayne Munns
August 26, 1965 ~ June 4, 2012
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
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.

I think of my dear brother and your husband and father daily. What a remarkable brother, father, son, and friend he was and is. I know he is in heaven watching over us. He was always such an example of what a man should be. I loved his personality and service mentality. I am honored to call him my dear brother. So sorry for his loss but so glad he is serving on the other side. Love you all.
