Aeldred Neil Anderson

October 12, 1938 — March 16, 2024

Born October 12, 1938, in Provo, Utah. Went home to visit all the many ancestors he has served over the years the morning of March 16, 2024. We know the reunion with family was welcome and spectacular.

 

He was head over heels in love and married Mary Elizabeth Pace, April 21, 1961. They were later sealed as an eternal family in the Salt Lake Temple February 3, 1972. Almost sixty-three years together and he would still do anything for her.

 

Serving our country was important to him. He served in the Army and trained as a Medic. He always flew a flag at the house and on the trailer camping. He was always the first to stand and show his respect for the flag at parades, ball games and events. He taught us to love our country.

 

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints he served in many capacities throughout his life. Dad and Mom served a mission for 4 ½ years at the Deseret Mills in Kaysville, Utah. Dad served an additional year photographing and documenting the Pasta Mill project. One of his favorite callings was serving the youth in the Boy Scout program. Which allowed him to serve others while doing something he loved, being outdoors.

 

Dad had a profound reverence for the outdoors and shared his passion with all he knew. He lived life to the fullest and filled it with adventure. Such as, hunting, fishing, bird watching, hiking and loving with great appreciation, all of God’s creation. He spent untold hours at Antelope Island, Yellowstone and Farmington Bay. He loved to share all the pictures of deer, elk, eagles and various other critters that may have fallen prey to his lens.

 

Dad worked for 14 years at Hercules in Clearfield, Utah. He worked in the Quality Area with several government contracts on missile programs. He then went to work for the Utah State Occupational Safety and Health Administration as a training consultant. He loved the fact that he could have an active role in helping build a safe workplace in a positive light. He was a confident and sought out speaker in the safety field.

 

Dad was a friend to everyone and would talk to anyone whether he knew them or not. He had the ability to make you the most important part of the conversation and feel good about yourself. He was always willing to help you, even if he didn’t know you. (That being said, you didn’t want to cross him). He had values and would stand up for what was right and fair. (If you crossed him, he had his feisty side).

 

What we learned from Dad. Live life to the fullest. There is always a way, figure it out. Our Creator gave us this great earth to enjoy and respect it. Honor and defend this country. Save Everything, you may need it later (I don’t recommend this one), although many times it paid off. You can find whatever you need at the D.I. Trust everyone but cut the cards. Make it work. Love the Lord. Talk to our Heavenly Father often. Be Grateful. Love everyone.

 

Family was everything. He had a deep love for his family.

 

Neil was preceded in death by his father Aeldred “Bay” Anderson, Mother Erma Anderson and sister Nancy Anderson.

 

He is Survived by his sister Janet Johnson, brother Rick Anderson, wife Mary Anderson, son Scott (Tracy) Anderson, son Brad (Kris) Anderson, son Troy (Leah) Anderson, daughter Denise (Scott) Kelly, daughter Diane (Paul) Royall, twenty-six grandchildren and thirty-three great grandchildren.

 

KEEP SMILING.
