Obituary for David Jackson Boll

David Jackson Boll was born in Pioche, Nevada to Harold and Kathleen Boll on September 17, 1948. They moved to Utah where he attended Granger High School and Westminster College, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in 1971. He was a member of De Molay.

David married Sharon Lee Odle on May 22, 1971 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Salt Lake City. They enjoyed 47 years together, welcoming many pets into their home; however, the love of their lives were their nephews and nieces, for whom they were surrogate grandparents for 14 years.

After graduating from college, David started working at the University of Utah in cancer research under a government grant. He then was employed by National Lead Corporation, Hercules Aerospace, and Hexcel Corporation. After retiring from Hexcel, he worked as a chemist in technical services and as a composites consultant for numerous companies in the United States and abroad. He was recognized by a number of organizations, including being published in Who’s Who in Frontiers of Science and Technology, 2nd Edition; the 2000-2001 edition of Strathmore’s Who’s Who; he earned a Certificate of Completion in Short Course Impact Damage in Composites on August 28, 1985; he was granted a patent (6752190) for his invention titled “Cure-on-the-Fly System” on June 22, 2004.

Among David’s many interests, he was an avid hunter and target shooter; but he excelled in his photography. He won many awards for his keen eye in composing nature scenes, including Best in Show, Utah State Fair 1984 – Grand Prize for his panoramic photograph of the old Saltair resort.

David passed away at home on August 30, 2018. He is survived by his wife Sharon; cousins: Debbie Kotchian (Robert), James Barkle (Karen), and Jonathan Steele.
