Adrian Alania

Adrian Eugenio Alania passed away at the hospital in Murray, UT with his family Wednesday, June 30th. He was 55.

Adrian was born on March 4th, 1966 in Corpacancha, Province of Junin, Peru. His parents were Raymundo Alania and Angelica Contreras. He arrived in the United States in 1985, he moved to Utah in 1995 and married Pauline Williamson in 1997. They were sealed together in the Logan temple on January 22nd, 2000. He was a Sanitation technician at Schreiber Foods, where he was employed for sixteen years.

Adrian loved to stay busy and spend time with his family. He was a math whiz and loved working with his hands on renovation projects. Adrian had a big heart and was always willing to help out a friend or family member whenever needed. He always had a song in his heart and could be heard whistling down the block of his neighborhood while walking his dogs Chewy and Maxwell every night. He loved his mom, dad and the rest of his family more than anything.

He is survived by his wife Pauline Alania, son Jeffrey Williamson, his brothers: Jose, Shatu, Eusebio, Francisco, Serapio; sisters: Victoria, Justina, Yolanda, Juana, Isabel, Magloria, and several nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be held at 12:00 PM on Wednesday, July 7th, 2021 in the Nibley 15th Ward Chapel, 360 West 3200 South, Nibley, Utah. A viewing will be held prior to the services at the church from 10:30 to 11:30 AM. Memories may be shared with the family at www.whitepinefunerals.com.


So sorry to hear of Adrian's passing. He was a nice guy and former neighbor. Sadly his death was very avoidable. For people to still be dieing of Covid when there is a vaccine to prevent just that, is just heartbreaking. RIP

Pauline and Jeff, I was so saddened to hear of Adrian's passing. I truly loved this good man. He supported me as a Bishop unlike many. He did everything he was asked and more. He never complained about any task he was given. His pleasant countenance was always felt in the office. He loved his family in Peru. I remember when the ward helped him make a trip to see his father in Peru. He was so grateful for being able to do that and it was a blessing for us to help him. Now he is on the other side of the veil cheering you on and wants you to continue faithfully in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Oh how I wish I could be there for his funeral. Please know how much he meant to me. Larry and Arlene Larson, Colorado Fort Collins Mission.

Adrian's passing hit me hard, to his family, He was a great man, always nice and always friendly, I had the opportunity to have a lot of conversations with him about Peru, and his family. Adrian also loved to whistle while he was at work, you always knew where he was on the floor :) You are missed my friend.
