Roger Glen Rosenlof

February 17, 1943 — February 13, 2024

Roger Glen Rosenlof passed away on 13 February 2024, in Bountiful Utah at the age of 80, 4 days short of his 81st birthday. He was born 17 February 1943, in Mt. Pleasant Utah, to Harold "R" Rosenlof & Reiva Elizabeth Anderson. He was the 4th child and second son. He had an older brother Travis, older sisters Sally & Ruth and younger sister Dixie.

Roger grew up on the farm. He spent much of his time helping his father and grandfather with the sheep, cattle, hay etc. He was not fond of this work to say the least growing up, nor as an adult. He graduated from North Sanpete High School in 1961. In his High School yearbook a classmate wrote, "past tease, present tease and future tease." He would sometimes help his brother Travis haul and deliver coal. Roger was also a member of the Utah National Guard, serving in the 1457th Engineer Battalion, 116th Engineer Company in Mt Pleasant Utah.

He married Beth Mills 2 March 1968 in Ogden, Utah. They were sealed later in the Salt Lake City Temple on 3 June 1983. They are the parents of two children, Michelle and Cameron. Roger has one grandson Shandon Roger Jones. Roger lived all of his adult life in Woods Cross, Utah.

He worked for Mountain Fuel Supply Company in Salt Lake City as an industrial meter setter and retired from Mountain Fuel after 24 years of service. He also had a part-time job while working for Mountain Fuel at the Browning Freight Company. After retiring from Mountain Fuel, he worked as a casual for ABF Freight. He worked a total of 20 years at the two freight companies. During retirement he liked to meet his friends at the coffee shops. Roger was very good with his hands and enjoyed making things such as walking sticks and other items. He was a very good welder.

One of his favorite things was to have a few pets. He loved dogs and had a "cat calling" Cockatiel. His dogs were like additional children, and he took them with him most everywhere.

He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and anything outdoors. He loved to take his motorhome to Mt. Pleasant and camp out for a couple of weeks every year. He enjoyed riding his side by side on the Skyline.

Roger is survived by his wife Beth, daughter Michelle, son Cameron and grandson Shandon and by his sisters Ruth and Dixie. And of course, his dog Bailee and his Cockatiel, Taylor. He was preceded in death by his parents and Beth's parents Ray & Selma Mills. Also, preceded in death by his brother Travis and sister Sally.
