Preston “Roy” Anderson, age 82, passed away from complications related to Alzheimer’s disease on Friday, June 16th, in his home in Twin Falls, Idaho. Born September 8, 1937 in Salt Lake City, Utah, the son of Ernest Roy Anderson and Genevieve Lomax Anderson. He graduated from Olympus High School in Salt Lake City in 1955, and then served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Northern Mexico Mission from 1957 to 1960. He attended Colorado School of Mines, University of Utah, and Brigham Young University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in Youth Leadership. He was active in the Boy Scouts of America, earning the Eagle rank, Vigil station in the Order of the Arrow, and Woodbadge. Roy also served in the Army Reserves for seven years.

Roy met his wife, Lynn Seaman Anderson, at BYU, and after a whirlwind romance, were married in the Salt Lake Temple on June 1, 1962. In their 58 years of marriage, they lived all over the western United States as he worked as a professional with the Boy Scouts of America. Roy and Lynn are the parents of seven children, grandparents of thirty-five grandchildren, eight great grandchildren and counting, and foster parents to over fifty children. Together, Roy and Lynn served three missions for their church, one in Scotland, one in Nauvoo, Illinois, and a service mission in Twin Falls, Idaho.

Roy was a lifetime member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was a die hard BYU football fan, and loved hunting and camping, especially with his children. He often coached his children’s teams in basketball, baseball, and football, and was very influential and supportive with his sons and grandsons in their achievements in Boy Scouts.

Roy was survived by his two sisters, Linda Collins and Erlynn Walker, and preceded in death by his parents, sister, Maureen Presser, and his great granddaughter, Harper Petters. He was also survived by his wife, Lynn, his daughters, Cheryl Jackson, Wendy Arbogast, Heather Wangeman, Holly Sandall, and Lisa Brown, as well as his sons, Preston Anderson and Matthew Anderson.

The funeral services for Roy will be held on Saturday, June 20th at 2pm at the Reynolds Funeral Chapel at 2466 Addison Ave. East in Twin Falls, Idaho.
