Roger Perry Andrus, beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend, passed away on November 8, 2020 due to complications from COVID-19.  Born in Salt Lake City, Utah on November 4, 1936 to Lawrence G.

Roger worked over 40 years with the Mountain States Telephone Co. (US West). He also worked for the State of Utah and served over 32 years on the Mountain America Credit Union Board of Directors.

Roger was a witty and generous man.  Valiant in the gospel and a genealogy master, he wrote books of his family history so we could hang onto those memories forever. He was a loving, dedicated husband and an extraordinary father and grandfather. He will be missed greatly but we’re comforted in knowing of the tender and glorious reunion with his loving wife.
