Bart Cleo Anderson was born in Burley, Idaho on March 8, 1943 and passed away on March 23, 2009 at the age of 66 in Saint George, Utah. He served a mission for the LDS Church in Scotland. Anderson married his first wife, Marsha Mouritsen, and had four children. He later married his best friend, Delorice Harvill, and they were later sealed in the Saint George Temple. Anderson was a very adventurous man, who skydived, hang-glided, hiked the Grand Canyon, and sailed the Great Salt Lake. He served in the US Navy and Coastguard. Anderson worked as an amateur radio operator for K7EDU, and professionally as a hematologist and medical examiner. When Anderson moved to Southern Utah, he met historian, Juanita Brooks, and became an amateur historian of Saint George and surrounding areas. He became one of the most prominent hiking experts. In fact, it wasn’t strange to see around 400 to 450 people on his hikes. Anderson also spent many hours preparing and giving lectures. He could be found every Thursday afternoon at the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center answering questions and giving advice to visitors. Anderson earned countless awards, one of which that was called “Outstanding Volunteer” which was given to him by the first lady, Hilary Clinton. Anderson was frequently called “Ranger Bart” by the community. His influence in the hiking community led to a trail being named after him at Sunriver, Saint George.
