Obituary

Blaine "Skip" Eli Andersen passed away peacefully on May12, 2017 at his home surrounded by his family. Skip was born on February 14, 1942 to Hannah Ethelyn Summers and Lewis Eli Andersen. He was the fourth child and the youngest son. He no doubt would tell you that he is the best looking, strongest, funniest, and better than his brothers at anything. He met the love of his life LaVerle Mary Whitaker at the berthana roller skating rink in Ogden, UT. After several attempts of running away to marry her in Nevada, he succeeded at the Court House on July 11, 1960 with LaVerle's mother as their witness. Their marriage was later Solemnized in the Ogden LDS Temple. Skip and LaVerle resided in Brigham City where they finished raising their four children.
Skip was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He worked as a machinist and loved trains, planes, old cars, Ferris wheels, and anything that moved mechanically. Skip enjoyed working with his hands, creating metal art for family and friends. He loved to go camping and fishing. His favorite thing was his family and he loved having family barbeques.
Skip is survived by his children: Shelly (Moy) Chambers of Salem, UT; Jody (James) Jensen; Bradley Blaine Andersen; and Suzette Kozak all of Brigham City; 15 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren. Also survived by his brother Glade "Jim" (Donna) Anderson.
He was preceded in death by his parents, 2 brothers DeVerle "Bud" and Larry LeRoy Anderson; a granddaughter Sadie Paige Kozak, and his loving wife of 54 years, LaVerle.
