Former Temple President, Banker C.R. Canfield Dead At 66

BOUNTIFUL, UTAH -- Former Johannesburg South Africa Temple President and long-time Utah Banker Charles "Chuck" Robert Canfield died Monday, December 11th in Bountiful, Utah after a battle with cancer. After a career working in banks in Washington, Colorado, Nevada and Utah, cumulating as President and CEO of Salt Lake City's Tracy Collins Bank, Canfield served the LDS Church in South Africa and then served as Director of the Hill Cumorah Visitor's Center and Historical Site. He was 66.

Canfield was born November 21, 1934 in Ogden, Utah. After joining the Navy ROTC while attending the University of Idaho, he was commissioned a captain in the US Marine Corps Reserve and served during the Korean War. Graduating from the University of Idaho in business and accounting, Canfield started working in the banking industry, working his way up from cashier to eventually head Tracy Collins, after he had started a bank with his father which they sold after three years to Zions National Bank.

Canfield was active in professional banking organizations, including the Utah Bankers Association, where he served as President. He was also active in politics, heading Senator Orrin Hatch's election campaign. In addition to serving as Temple President and as Visitor's Center Director, Canfield was Oquirrh East Stake President. He also actively supported the Boy Scouts of America, and received that organization's highest award, the Silver Buffalo, in 1985 in recognition for his contributions.
