Miles “Cap” Ferry, 3/31/17 - Tremonton Leader

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Son, Inc.", expanding its 117-year operation into its current diversified feedlot, ranching and farming agri-business. He began his lifelong love for public service through the US Junior Chamber of Commerce (JAYCEEs) civic organization.  He was then elected to the Utah House of Representatives in 1964 and to the Utah State Senate in 1966.  He served eighteen years in the Senate, and as President of the Senate for six of those years.  As a legislator, Cap was known for his sound judgment, fairness, and ability to bridge differences.  While serving as Senate President, he was selected as National Legislator of the Year and in 1983, was elected as President of the National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL).  In his capacity as President of NCSL he frequented the White House and traveled internationally to meet with foreign officials and heads of state.In 1985, Cap was appointed Utah Commissioner of Agriculture by newly-elected Governor Norman H. Bangerte,r and served in that capacity for eight years, during which he also served as Vice-Chair of the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture.Upon leaving official public service, he joined his wife Sue in her successful political consulting firm, "Legislative Executive Consulting."  As partners, they advised and lobbied for local, state, national, and international clients.Cap was an active member of The Church of Jesus of Latter-day Saints.  He cherished his service as a Bishopric Counselor, a High Councilman, as a Service Missionary (13 years) at the Joseph Smith Building, SLC, and as a Brigham City Temple Worker.Though community, church, and political service brought him great satisfaction, perhaps the greatest joy that came to Cap was through serving his family.  He loved making his grandkids (whom he affectionately called the "Kinsmen"), a waffle breakfast on Sunday afternoons, bringing together his children at Christmastime, spending time with grandkids at the cabin in Bear Lake, and taking friends and family on summer trips to Europe and beyond.  Cap will be remembered for his great service to the community, but also for his small acts of kindness to his family and friends.Cap is survived by his dear wife, Suzann...
