John Kenneth Aalders-09/12/1978- 01/05/2022 A Best friend to Everyone he came across. Father to four biological children. Father figure to all our kid’s friends. John and Donalee met while working together at First Security. After work one day Donalee went to talk to another friend from work and John was walking outside, they began talking in the parking lot and ended up talking until 1am. They were inseparable ever since. They married 2 years after they began dating on October 12 2001 in West Valley City Ut. At a beautiful golf course. Over the next 20 years they moved from West Valley to Magna to their final home in Stansbury Park Ut. It was always their dream to one day travel the world together. John would research sailboats and wanted to one day learn to sail to go see all the places of the world. John always put everything he was into everything he did. When he decided he wanted to go back to college to finish his degree he was working full time and helping to raise our four children. It was so hard, some nights he wouldn’t get much sleep but we never knew how much he was struggling because he never let anyone see anything but the best of him. John managed to get his bachelors degree from USU and was even on the deans list for his grades. John worked for England Logistics for 11 years, he started out in brokerage and quickly moved up into ECS working with selling tires, fuels and factoring. When ECS decided to separate into individual sales teams John moved into just selling Fuel and was one of the top earners for the company. Once he got his degree he moved into managing a team. John loved to help people to grow and succeed. He stayed up late many nights figuring out better ways to build his team. He was always there for them, from late night calls just to talk about personal issues to random lunches just because, to buying matching hoodies. John put so much into his family. We were his pride and joy. He always thought of the most thoughtful gifts for birthdays and Holidays. Things other people wouldn’t notice John would notice. He always knew your favorite soda or candy, the silly little things that made such a huge difference. Every birthday and anniversary we had together always came with a card with the most amazing personal message written by John. John wanted to be sure he had many memories with his children. We often went camping together. He loved all things outdoors from fishing, camping, hunting, dirtbiking and sports. One year he bought four wheelers and motorcycles for everyone in the family just so we could have another way to spend family time together building memories. John coached or assisted in coaching for our kid’s baseball teams from age 4 clear through their high school years. He had planned to Coach Cason’s last year of baseball this season. John leaves behind his Wife Donalee Aalders, Children Hazel Claire Aalders (19) Cason Gage Aalders (17) Katie Taylor Aalders (13) Mia Ashley Aalders (11). HIs Parents John and Beverly Aalders, Sisters Beverly (Chris) Kenny, and Christine Aalders, nephews Hunter and Cody Johnstone and many numerous Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and friends. John you touched so many lives in your short life. You were taken way too soon. You are so very loved and so very missed. We are thankful for the laughter and joy you brought us, until we hear that amazing laugh and see that EPIC beard again. Services will be held at the LDS Ward. 417 Benson Rd.
