Title Daniel Rasmussen, A Man of intergrity
Description DANIEL RASMUSSEN, A MAN OF INTEGRITY Lousie B. Johansen Senior Division First Place Personal Recollection As I observed Daniel Rasmussen's unusual kindness, tolerance, and knowledge in our large American Problems class al North Sanpete High School, 1 was convinced that he was a man of integrity. His expert penmanship inspired me 10 ask him to write my name on the little cards I enclosed in my graduation announcements. He very willingly accepted and they were beautiful. Daniel Rasumussen retired the same year our class graduated in 1939. We felt so fortunate to have his life touch ours for good and we adopted him as one of our classmates. At graduation time the faculty and students honored him with a program and gift for 36 years of unselfish devotion to his many students. Daniel Rasmussen died 28 June 1959, at the age of 83, having lived a life of service to his fellowmen. At his funeral Grant Johansen offered the following tribute: In the passing of Daniel Rasmussen, Mt. Pleasant has lost a stalwart citizen. Does it not worry you as it does me, that in his passing, whether society is creating people of such caliber and integrity to take his place? His service to God, family, and country, shows his desire to help build a better world. My experience with him both as a student and member of the North Sanpete faculty helped me to build my love and appreciation for this great man. He was always patient, well read, tolerant of others, and the best volleyball fan on our team. He was my ideal throughout my life. A few of the projects he accomplished during his term as mayor were: the erection of the Carnegie Library where he served as an officer for 42 years; cement curbing on the north side of Main Street from Slate to 2nd West; extension of water and lights: and purchase of a fire truck. Daniel served as city councilman, mayor and was elected to serve four terms as city recorder. He was secretary of the Pioneer Historical Association and was instrumental in starting this organization. He was on the committee for erecting a monument in their honor. He served on the irrigation and cattleman hoards, In church capacities he was Superintendent 14
