Ennis Kent Anderson returned to his Heavenly Father, surrounded by family, on Dec. 22, 2011.
He was born Nov. 14,1938 in Shelley, Idaho, to Leon W. and Cassia Anderson. He served in the Central States Mission. He married his sweetheart, Priscilla Williams, April 20, 1962, in the Idaho Falls Temple. He graduated from Blackfoot High School, Idaho State University, and University of Utah.
Ennis was employed by the LDS Church for 36 years. He demonstrated a life of service, as youth leader, pastor at the Salt Lake City Jail, Bishop, and served the people of Atlanta on a mission with his dear wife. He shared his love of the outdoors with many friends and family as a experienced river guide and hunter. His favorite things were wood working, playing piano, sitting by a good campfire and a sharp chainsaw. Those who knew him were able to experience his love of life through his many jokes and stories.
Ennis is survived by his wife Priscilla and four children Gaylin (Teresa) of Simi Valley, Lisa (Mark) Sheffield of Ogden, Chad (Amy) of Salt Lake, Joy (Kirk) Crabb of Pleasant Grove and 14 grandchildren.
He showed much patience and endurance during his health challenges over many years. A special thanks to those who cared for him and stood by him during his fight and became his friends.
