SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Neil LaMonte Astle, 66, an award winning LDS architect who designed many well-known buildings in Utah, died March 13 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Astle's work includes buildings at the University of Utah, Weber State University, Salt Lake City College, and Snow College, as well as the Mormon Trail Center in Nebraska.

In 1999, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award, "the highest award given to a retired architect, who during his years of practice and service to the community has contributed a body of high quality work that has left a lasting legacy and a positive impact upon those who use it" from the Utah Society of Institute of Architects (AIA).

Astle was the first Utah recipient of this award. His obituary appeared in newspapers in both Nebraska and Utah where he had offices. He was a Professor of Architecture at Rhode Island School of Design and the University of Nebraska, and was the founder of Astle/Ericson &Associates.

Celebration of life services were held Friday, March 17 at the Wheeler Farm Activity Barn Building, one of his designs. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Neil Astle Memorial Scholarship Fund, c/o the Graduate School of Architecture, University of Utah, 375 S. 1530 E, Salt LakeCity, UT, 84112.
