Dallan Earl Rasmussen, 76, of Preston, passed away on Tuesday, October 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. While performing in the play Aida, he met the love of his life, LuAnne McClellan. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple on August 6, 1969.
Though Dallan enjoyed working hard, he always tried to spend time with his family, from camping trips, history tours, and 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 sixteen 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.
