Albert Aardema

0/1/1926 ~ 2/22/2012
Albert was born in SLC, UT to Siese and Maria Vuyk Aardema. He married his sweetheart, Betty Jean Royall in the Salt Lake Temple on Dec. 9, 1950; she preceded him in death on Feb. 13, 2003. Albert graduated from South High School; then achieved a bachelor's degree in business at the LDS Business College. He spent 3 years in the armed forces and some of that time was spent in the Philippines. Albert worked for Mountain Fuel/Questar for 42 years. He enjoyed bowling in the Mountain Fuel League for many years and was an avid sports enthusiast. He also loved pets-especially Rusty. Survived by his three children: Sheldon, Karen (Bruce), Craig (Christine); 8 grandchildren; 3 great-grandchildren (with one on the way); many nieces, nephews and cousins. Many thanks to the wonderful staff at Care Source who so lovingly took care of Dad in his final days, and also to the dedicated staff at Trinity Care Center.
