Ardean Watts

Jul 28, 2017

Friday, we’re rebroadcasting a conversation with Ardean Watts, who died last week at the age of 89. Ardean happened to be one of the most interesting people around here. He was a musician, a heretic, and a Mormon. He had an epiphany at midlife that led him on a journey to rebuild his sense of faith, but he didn’t settle on just one. In fact, he said he found most descriptions of God uninteresting. We talked about a lot of things like mushrooms, music, and strangers. (Rebroadcast)

There's a memorial service for Ardean Watts on Saturday, August 19, 2017, 2:00 pm in Libby Gardner Hall on the University of Utah campus. The family invites attendees to bring their own copies of the Hallelujah Chorus to "join in the singing and the celebration."
