He married Marcelle Greenhalgh in the Salt Lake Temple, September 5, 1951. They are the parents of seven children. Angus graduated from the University of Utah, and enjoyed a long and successful banking career, primarily with Zions Bank, enjoying rewarding associations with many fine people. The family lived in Bountiful and Salina, before settling in Provo in 1971. After 40 years of marriage, Marcelle died in March 1991. Following her death, Angus married Ruth Eleanor “Jenny” Jones Frederick on December 27, 1991, in the Salt Lake Temple. She died in April 2011.

He will be remembered for his unfailing good humor, his humility, and his generosity. He stood for the right in all places, at all times. He has fought a good fight, he has finished the course, he has kept the faith.
