John Frank Anderson(1934 - 2014)

September 1934 ~ September 2014
John Frank Anderson, loving husband and father, age 79, of Bountiful Utah returned to his Heavenly Father on Patriot Day, Thursday September 11, 2014. 
He was born in Hiawatha Utah on September 27, 1934 to Thelma Curtis and Isaac Q Anderson. He graduated from Carbon High School in Price Utah and attended Carbon College and Utah Technical College where he learned to be a machinist. He married Ingeborg Strassner in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on June 19, 1964.
John loved his country, and served for two years in the U.S. Navy. He was hard working and provided for his family. He worked for over 40 years in the aerospace and computer industries. He had a great appreciation for music, especially the Tabernacle Choir and the big bands. He loved history, both reading it and teaching it to those around him, especially the history of the state of Utah and the United States. He also completed much work in family history. He was always kind, thoughtful, and helpful. He loved the LDS Church and held many callings including serving for 18 years as a ward clerk.
John is survived by his wife Ingeborg, of Bountiful, UT; and two children: John (Marlies), of Payson, UT; and James (Beverley), of Perth Australia. He is also survived by six grandchildren: Adam (LDS mission in Finland), Jessica (Steve), Kristina, Megan, Amanda, and Emma. He is also survived by his sister Beth, of Las Vegas, NV. John was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Gail, his twin brother James, and his sister Louise. 
We are so grateful for the many precious memories that we have of him. He will be greatly missed. 
We would like to thank the staff at Avalon Care Center and Inspiration Hospice for their loving service.
