Jeffory Braun Anderson, age 60 of Springville, Utah, passed away peacefully at home on Friday, February 10, 2017 surrounded by his family. He was born on November 27, 1956 in Provo, Utah to Phillip H and Roberta (Teddy) Braun Anderson.
Jeff grew up on Brookside Drive, where he spent many summer days wading and tubing in Hobble Creek and playing night games with the neighborhood kids. He graduated from Springville High School with the class of 1976 and had many great friends whom he loved to associate with.
From a very young age, he showed an aptitude for all things mechanical—if something could be taken apart and put back together, he would try. He loved old cars and spent hours working on his '55 Chevy Bel Air, '68 Ford Bronco and '69 Chevy Camaro. Jeff also loved guns and enjoyed pheasant hunting with his dad, brother and uncles, as well as shooting targets out by Utah Lake.
Jeff was a talented and accomplished mechanic. His first job was at the D-Oil Company, where he worked for his father. He then went on to work for several dealerships in Provo as an auto mechanic. Jeff’s interests changed, and he became an industrial machine mechanic and electrician for R.P. Scherer Corp (Cardinal Health). He was then employed by Smith MegaDiamond (Schlumberger) as a mechanic and inspector.
Jeff married Cathy Gee in 1984, though they later divorced. Together, they had two children, Rachael Niccole (Hilary Fuller) and Derek Braun (Natalie) Anderson.
He is survived by his children; mother; brother Gregory (Cari) Anderson; sisters Terese (Randy) Revoir and Stacy Anderson; and many nieces, nephews and extended family members. He was preceded in death by his father. He will forever be in our hearts and deeply missed. We love you, Jeff.
A memorial service and grave dedication for Jeff will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at the Springville Evergreen Cemetery, 1997 S. 400 E., Springville far East section on the South end. A luncheon will follow at the Springville City Office Multi Purpose Room, 110 South Main Street, Springville, UT.
