Darol Bowen Rasmussen

November 30, 2010 |

Oct. 31, 1921 — Nov. 23, 2010

Darol Rasmussen
Darol Bowen Rasmussen was born Oct. 31, 1921, in Moroni, Utah, to Darol Rasmussen and Katherine Bowen. He passed away at his ranch home surrounded by his family on Nov. 23, 2010, at the age of 89.

Darol was raised in Sanpete County, Utah, and married Thora Jensen Rasmussen from Ephraim, Utah while on furlough during World War II. Darol and Thora lived in San Francisco where Darol attended dental school, then chose Carmichael to build a home and raise four children. After practicing dentistry for 30 years, Darol enjoyed developing property from his Cameron Park ranch where he loved the foothills, cows, ponds and majestic oaks.

Darol held leadership positions in many organizations, including the San Juan Unified School District Board, Boy Scouts Golden Empire Council, El Dorado County Planning Commission, Los Rios Community College Foundation, Rotary and Snow College Foundation. He was the author of several publications, including “Roots for Revolt,” and “America: The Great Experiment.”

Darol had a passion for traveling, loved the outdoors and adventures, had an unquenchable curiosity to learn how others see life and relished philosophical and political discussions. Enthusiastic about new challenges, he was hard working, generous and encouraging to others.

Darol was preceded in death by his wife, Thora Rasmussen; daughter, Mayre Rasmussen; and brother, Bob Rasmussen. He is survived by his second wife, Laura Antoniolli Rasmussen; three siblings, Kay Alder, Merv Rasmussen and Ron Rasmussen; children, Craig Rasmussen, Jan Bronson and Gayle Rasmussen; five grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. Darol was
respected, loved by many and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

No formal services will be held as per Darol’s wishes. Donations can be made in his memory to the Cameron Park Rotary Endowment Fund.
