Hunter Barrus

June 11, 1945 ~ April 17, 2021 (age 75)


Hunter Winford Barrus passed away peacefully on April 17th, 2021 after suffering a stroke one week prior to his death. He is preceded in death by his parents, Windford and Orlean Barrus.

Hunter was born on June 11, 1945 in Tremonton, Utah, where he enjoyed a happy and adventurous childhood with his five siblings who survive him… Melvin (Melodee), Emma Jean (Bryan), Jodie (Soni), Marilyn (Ron), and Tim (Cleo). Hunter served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Central Atlantic States Mission before meeting his wife, Janice Blaisdell, while attending Ricks College in Idaho. They were married on June 21, 1968 in the LDS Logan City temple for time and all eternity. He gave six years of service as a staff sergeant E6 in the Army National Guard before graduating from Utah State University in Physical Health Education. Hunter enjoyed a lengthy career as a teacher, coach, and athletic director at his alma mater, Bear River Highschool. He loved the lifelong connections that he made with his students and cherished being a part of their growth and development. After his retirement, he served another mission with his wife in the Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh mission (Punxsutawney). Hunter actively enjoyed several hobbies including woodworking, flyfishing, boating, camping, and genealogy.

Hunter’s highest priorities were the Gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and his family. He is survived by his wife, Janice Blaisdell, his children, Nikole Nilson (Troy), Tyler Barrus (Amber), David Barrus (Jamie), and Wade Barrus (Amber). He and Janice have 12 grandkids and one great grandchild.

Viewing will be held Thursday April 22, 2021 from 5pm-7pm at Rogers and Taylor Funeral Home (111 North 100 East Tremonton) and Friday April 23, 2021 from 9:30am-10:30am at the Riverview LDS Church (10750 N Hwy 38 Deweyville). Funeral Services will be held Friday April 23, 2021 at 11am at the Riverview LDS Church.  

The service will be livestreamed and may be found at under his obituary.

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
