ANNOUNCEMENTS

Allan Wayne Andreasen 

May 29, 1945 ~ October 4, 2020 (age 75)

Our loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, Alan Wayne Andreasen, 75, passed away surrounded by family on October 4, 2020 in Murray, Utah from complications of a heart attack.  Alan was born May 29, 1945 in Tremonton, Utah, the ninth child of Golden R. and Fern Petersen Andreasen.  He was raised on the family farm in Elwood, Utah where he learned the benefits of hard work.  As a youth he gained a love for horses which carried on throughout his life.  He met his eternal companion, Carol Ann Simcox, on a blind date and it was love at first sight.  They were married on July 20, 1966.  They raised their six children in Bear River City, Utah where he served as a city council member for 16 years.

His membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was very important to him and he enjoyed serving in various capacities.  His favorite callings involved teaching and discussing the scriptures, which he loved to study regularly. 

Alan worked for Box Elder County Road Department for over fifty years, where he found great satisfaction in building quality roads.

He had a deep love for his family and enjoyed supporting his children and grandchildren in their various activities, and always encouraged them to do their best.  He had a close relationship with his siblings and over the years enjoyed many gatherings with them.

 Alan was friendly and could often be found talking to complete strangers.  He had many treasured friends he enjoyed spending time with regularly.

Alan had the opportunity to live his dream of being a real cowboy as he gathered and drove cattle in Emery County with Robert Anderson for many years.

In his later years Alan enjoyed woodworking and the challenge it gave him.  He also enjoyed fly fishing where he was often accompanied by children, grandchildren, or good friends.

After retirement, he fulfilled a dream of owning a Harley Davidson motorcycle.  He enjoyed riding with friends and once traveled from Key West, Florida to near Prudhoe Bay, Alaska which he declared was “The Ride of a Lifetime”.  He and Carol also enjoyed many trips on the motorcycle together visiting family in the Midwest, the sites in Canada, and beautiful scenery of the west.

Alan is survived by his wife, Carol, four children: Darin Wayne, Janae (Jason) Griffiths, Traver G (Ivy), LaChelle (Colby) Enright; his mother-in-law, Connie Simcox Clement; fifteen grandchildren, and one great-grandchild with two on the way.  He is also survived by his siblings, Reid (Donna), Roger (Karin), Linda (Leon) Rasmussen, and Ron (Jodi); as well as two brothers-in-law, Bob (Linda) Simcox and Ken (Cindy) Simcox.  He was preceded in death by his parents; two sons, Brandon Wade and Rory Dee; and six siblings: Gordon, Rayola, Clair, Curtis, Carolyn, and Janice.

Graveside service will be open to public and will be held Friday, October 9, 2020 at 12:00 noon at the Bear River City Cemetery (4600 W. 5600 N., Bear River City).


 

A generous thanks to all who attended the 55th Year Reunion at the Lodge at Maddox.  Those attending renewed friendships, laughed a lot, and shared memories.  There were 82 present.  Fourty-eight (48) were classmates.  There was a surprising number who attended our class reunion for the first time.  There were also some who have not attended regularly, who enjoyed the evening.   We all had an excellent meal, the very best company, and great entertainment.  Blaine gave everyone a beautifuly finished cell phone holder that he made by hand - more than 100 of them.  Blaine also made a handsome wooden donation box that will stay with reunion committees.  Jerry used his great MC skills and kept us laughing,  Carol Ann told stories about us.  Some true and most not true at all (they were the best).  Janet sang to us. Her talent still amazes. Dan provided guitar accompaniment for the School Song. We also enjoyed a presentation prepared by Jerry and Aralee highlighting those 21 classmates who have died over the years.  We talked until they turned out the lights on us.  Some of us are suffering from phyical and emontional difficulties and losses, but it did not show.  It is so nice to be part of such a happy group of friends.  

We had not planned to have a class photo, but someone suggested that everyone gather on the steps for a classmate photograph.  Unfortunately, since the picture was spontaneous, some had already left for home. Hope you enjoy.  

A 2023 (60th yr) reunion committee was chosen.  Dennis Fuhriman is the chairman assisted by Virgil Pugsley. Janet Thompson Cook, and Aralee Schothern.  This will be good!

We also solicited donations to kick-start the next reunion and to keep the website supporting and connecting us.  Classmates and their guests raised more than $800. We will now be able to pay for our website subscription and give the next committee the ability to prepare for the next reunion.

Hope to cross paths with you soon, but if not, see you in five years.  Good Health to You!

Your faithful friends:

Blaine Pierson, Jerry and Jan Larsen, and Jay and Judy Nielson

 

Thank you to the reunion committee for the planning--and thank you to each one for coming. I wish I had been able to talk to everyone. We had a delightful evening. Yes, where have the years gone? God bless you all! ~Dixie Conger
