They are the parents of five children (Laura and Mark Clement of Lindon, Keith Roper of Fayetteville, Ark., Alisa and Brian Gunn of Mountain Green, Daniel and Sue Roper of Lehi, and Randall and Jerilyn Roper of Westfield, Ind.). They have 27 grandchildren. Following Don's retirement in 2007, he and Marian moved to Huntington, where they are presently residing.
