Robert L. Anderson
BEAR RIVER CITY – Our loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle, and friend, Robert LaVal Anderson, 78, is on the road again to reunite with his mother, father, brother, and beloved sisters. Bob passed away peacefully on Friday, February 28, 2014 with his wife and two daughters by his side, at the home he was born in. He had courageously battled a long illness.
Bob was born on October 25, 1936 in Bear River City to LaVal and Mary Amelia Ellis Anderson. Later, he proudly served his country in the US Army. He was a member of the LDS Church.
Bob married his honey, Rose Mary Ashley on December 13, 1958 in Bear River City, where they lived and raised four wonderful children.
He worked for Thiokol for 35 years as a Production Control Manager, then retired in 1992, allowing him to pursue his greatest pleasures. Bob was an accomplished artist, saddle-maker, leather and wood craftsman, and he built a thriving business using all of these talents.
Bob was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying camping, boating, and especially four-wheeling on his quad or side-by-side ATV. He also loved traveling, doing cross word puzzles, woodworking, drawing, fixing, and generally tinkering with any gadget that he could get his hands on. Most of all, though, he loved spending time with his family and his favorite puppy, Kasi.
Surviving are his wife, Rose of Bear River City; four children: Audie (Vivianne) Anderson of Townsend, MT; Tami (Dallas) Clark of Deweyville, UT; Don (Phylene) Anderson of Bear River City, UT; the “Baby” Julie (Tom) Thibault, San Diego, CA; nine grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, all of his nieces and nephews, and his best friend, Raymond Toombs of Townsend, MT.
