Stanley Glen Anderson, age 80, passed away April 6, 2012 in Riverton, surrounded by his adoring family.
He was born May 4, 1931 in Ephraim to Adrian LeRoy and Alice Vione Nielson Anderson. He graduated with honors from Carbon High School in 1949. In 1950, Stan married LaRae Bendall in Castle Gate; their marriage was solemnized in the Manti LDS Temple in 1951.
Dad highly valued education. While raising a family of six, he attended and graduated from the University of Utah with a double major in Finance and Management.
Dad was our role model of hard work. He started out delivering newspapers as a young boy in Helper and ultimately retired as an executive at Kennecott Utah Copper after 41 years of service.
Dad was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He held many positions including bishop of his beloved Hunter 3rd Ward. After retiring, Mom and Dad served as full-time missionaries in Reykjavik, Iceland.
Service to others, integrity, and dependability defined him.
Dad's life centered around his family, wife LaRae, children: David (Carla), Shanna (Bob) Burnside, Christie (Bob) Northrup, Bobbie (Blaine) Raby, Brent (Debbie), and Randy (Tami), 18 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren with one on the way.
