Barry A. Anderson passed away peacefully at his home in Tempe, AZ on January 17th, 2013. He was a dedicated husband, father, and friend. Barry was born August 27th, 1942 in Manti, Utah, as the only child of Alvin Owen and Mina Miller Anderson. He graduated from Manti High School in 1960 where he served as his senior class president. Following his graduation he joined the Manti National Guard Unit and proudly completed his obligations there. He then attended Snow College in Ephraim, UT, before serving a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Central Atlantic States Mission. He graduated from Utah State University in 1968 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering. He moved to Phoenix, AZ, in 1968 where he began working at Western Electric/AT&T Cable Manufacturing Plant. He married Juneve Scoresby on June 16th, 1972 in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple and lived in Tempe, AZ since that time. Barry retired in 2003.
