Don and Marian Roper
Don and Marian Roper were married on Sept. 2, 1960 in the Salt Lake Temple. Following their marriage, they made their first home in Pullman, Wash., where Don attended Washington State University. After receiving his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, the couple returned to Utah and made their home in American Fork, where Don had a veterinary practice for 43 years.
