Walter Angus (Walt/Scottie), 89, surrounded by his family joined our heavenly father and his loving wife of 70 years on Sunday, August 14th, 2022. Walt was born on December 16, 1932 to William Henry Angus and Mabel Auton Pearce. Walt and his wife (Pauline Angus) were married on December 13, 1953 and later sealed in the Salt Lake City LDS temple. Walt, Pauline, and their first born, Marilyn, began their journey to Salt Lake City, Utah in January of 1958 from Hartlepool, England. He began his career at the University of Utah working in cancer research and ultimately retired after 50+ years. During that time, Walt and Pauline had their second child, Georgia.
Walt had a passion for the outdoors. He'd often take long motorcycle rides or his family to the lake to go boating. Walt and Pauline would take trips to Mexico in their 5th wheel, visit relatives in England, and take trips to Wendover with family and friends. You’d often find him out on his daily walks or enjoying morning coffee gatherings with some of his closest friends. Cooking and baking for those he loved was one of his favorite pastimes, taking joy in passing along his favorite recipes to his family.
Walt was the most wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and great, great-grandfather- loved by everyone he knew and making friends with nearly everyone he came across. Walt is preceded in death by his wife, Pauline Angus ("Pop"), his parents, four siblings, Doug, Edie, William and Peter. His memory will be cherished and kept alive by his daughters, Marilyn Angus and Georgia Hatch (Karl). His grandchildren, Lori, Raymond (Jackie), Jason (Julie), Chris, Derek (Josie), Angela (Luke), and Melodie (Cody) and many great and great, great grand-children. There are no words to express the love Walt had for his family and friends. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

I am so sorry for the departure of Uncle Walt. I will always remember his beautiful smile and kind heart. He is truly missed.
I had the pleasure of playing golf with Walt and his friends for several years. He had a great sense of humor and we enjoyed teasing one another on our errant golf shots. I know he will be a big loss to his family and friends.
I was sad to hear of Walt's passing. Walt and Pauline were my sister's next-door neighbors for years. I was always comforted knowing that Walt and Pauline were next-door and would be there if my sister needed their help in an emergency.
Rest in peace, Walt you and Pauline have a lot to catch up on.
Thinking of all you at this sad time lots of love John,Christine,Wayne & Tracey Scott Belford xx
