Bodie Topham and his twin brother were born in Monticello, Utah. He is the oldest of 5 children. As a young child he and his family lived all over Southern Utah, Monticello, Escalante, Kodachrome Basin State Park, Dead Horse Point State Park, Moab, Fremont Indian State Park, and Monroe; his parents, Gordon and JoAnn, still reside in Monroe. Bodie graduated from South Sevier High School class of ’93 where he was active in a variety of sports & activities. Bodie served a mission for the LDS church in the Portugal Lisbon North Mission.
After returning home from Portugal he attended Southern Utah University, where met, and later married, his wife Camille “Millie” Dangerfield Topham. Shortly after their marriage, they moved to Cincinnati, Ohio so that Bodie could attend and graduate from Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science, earning a Bachelor of Mortuary Science degree. Bodie’s experience in Funeral Service started with an apprenticeship at Larkin Mortuary in Salt Lake City, prior to Mortuary School. He then served the great people of Tooele County at Tate Mortuary for 15 years. Bodie’s roots run deep in Iron County; he is a grandson of the late Waldo and Afton Topham of Cedar City. When he was invited to join the Southern Utah Mortuary team, in December of 2016, he was happy to accept the offer and get back to scenic Southern Utah.
Bodie and Camille are proud parents of their daughter, McKenzie, and son, Bridger. Bodie is passionate about helping families, in their time of need, to find peace and comfort through the funeral process. Bodie feels blessed to serve the families of this area
