Obituary: Russell O Anderson

1948 ~ 2004

Russell O. Anderson, 55, passed away peacefully on Oct. 26, 2004.

Russell was born Nov. 11, 1948 in Mount Pleasant, UT to LaRay N. Anderson and Mathel Walker Anderson.

Russell graduated from North Sanpete High School, Snow College, and Utah State University. He completed his medical degree at University of Utah, followed by a residency in San Bernardino, California. He established his medical practice in North Logan where he continued until his retirement in 1998. He was a compassionate family physician whose caring service to the community is missed.

He served a full-time mission to Ireland and enjoyed giving service in many church callings.

He married Julianne Howell in the Manti LDS Temple Sept. 18, 1971, and their love continues eternally.

Russell's greatest accomplishment was his loving dedication to his wife and children and his example to them in living the gospel of Jesus Christ.
