Floyd Rowse Tanner
1938 ~ 2013

Dr. Floyd Rowse Tanner, 74, passed away on July 16, 2013 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Floyd was born Sept. 19, 1938 to Douglas Floyd Tanner and Alta Lucille Rowse. He graduated from East High School and the University of Utah. Floyd went on to receive a DDS from USC in 1964.

After graduating from dental school, Floyd returned to Salt Lake City and set up his dental practice in the Holladay area. He met JoAnn Kjar and three months later they were married in the Salt Lake Temple. They had six wonderful children and have added eight very special grandchildren. Floyd's deep love of his family, church, and friends was evident. He was a sensitive and caring dentist and prided himself on being painless in his care. He was a member of the American Dental Assn., Utah Dental Assn., the Salt Lake Dental Assn. from 1964 to present, and held many leadership positions in them. Floyd was also a member of the American Society of Preventative Dentistry, American Assn. of Dental Examiners, American Academy of Operative Dentistry, Western Regional Examining Board, to name a few.

Floyd loved to paint with both watercolors and oils. Going to Monterey with Ed Maryon's watercolor groups each summer to paint on site was a treasured treat and many wonderful pictures evolved from these trips. He had a wonderful baritone voice and he sang in several choral groups with his wife, JoAnn.

Floyd was also generous with his time volunteering in the community. He was known for his willingness to teach dental health to the elementary children and they loved the "toothbugs" he drew for them. He was called as a dental consultant for Missionary Medical and he provided free dental care for many of the foreign missionaries serving in the Salt Lake missions.

Our family would especially like to express our appreciation to the neuro staff at IMC and especially the staff at Care Source for the excellent and compassionate care given to Floyd and the kind support of our family.

Floyd is survived by his wife JoAnn K Tanner; children Mindy Johnson, F. Tyler Tanner (Shawni), Erin Tanner, Kimball Tanner, Sarah Bruner (Todd), Lynsie Olsen (Paul) and his grandchildren Samantha Johnson, Alex Johnson (Paige), Nick Johnson, Tasia Tanner, Tanner & Cambria Bruner, and Evie & Madelyn Olsen. Floyd is also survived by siblings Joyce Stalnaker (Bob), Gayle Cromer (Ken), and Bruce Tanner (Stephanie). Floyd is preceded in death by parents Douglas & Alta Tanner, grandson Ethan Johnson, and sister Joan Shrum, and brother Douglas Tanner.

The family will receive friends at a viewing on Sunday, July 21, 2013 from 6-8 p.m. at Wasatch Lawn Cemetary, 3401 Highland Drive. Funeral Services will be held Monday, July 22, 2013 at Olympus 1st Ward, 4100 S Camille Drive. Friends may attend a viewing from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. prior to the service at 11:00 a.m.
