Dallan Earl Rasmussen

Dallan Earl Rasmussen 76 of Preston, passed away on Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2020, at home surrounded by his family. Dallan was born March 25, 1944, in Preston, Idaho to Harvey Hans Rasmussen and Ramona Mae Talbot.

Dallan learned the value of hard work at a young age from hoeing sugar beets to stacking pea vines. He continued his legacy of hard work later in life by hauling hay to local dairies and ranches. Dallan completed four years of schooling at BYU in sociology. It was there while performing in the play “Aida” that he met the love of his life, LuAnne McClellan. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple on Aug. 6, 1969.

Though Dallan enjoyed working hard he always tried to spend time with his family from camping trips, history tours, Bear Lake trips, to later in life fun trips with his wife. When Dallan “retired,” he had the opportunity to serve with his wife for five years at the Logan LDS temple.

Dallan is survived by his wife, LuAnne, and his children: Clint, Melanie (Kory) Hobbs, Mark, Annette (Nick) Vredeveld, Matt (Sabrina), Jon (Jamie), and Eric (Kristin) and 16 grandkids and five great-grandkids. He is also survived by his sister Eilene. He is preceded in death by both of his parents and by his brother, Maynard.
