About Ervin "Dick" Arnold Richens
Ervin Arnold (Dick) Richens, age 83, returned home to his Heavenly Father, Oct. 30, 2000, Sandy, Utah after a short illness.
Dick was born the 10th of 15 children to Henry Thomas Richens and Catherine Arthema Mott on April 9, 1917, Arcadia, Utah.
He married Adelaide Margaret Fish, Nov. 28, 1938. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple Dec. 12, 1963.
They were blessed with eight children. He loved to farm on the ranch where he was born and raised. There he was truly at home. He also loved hunting and fishing. He laid the main sewer lines in the Salt Lake Valley with his brothers, some trenches. near 60 ft. deep, risking his life. He was a very good equipment operator. He had a friendly personality, and always had a joke or riddle to tell. Always willing to help people. He will be with us in our thoughts, and we will miss him dearly.
Preceded in death by his parents, nine brothers, two sisters and first born son, Joseph Ervin. Survived by his wife Adelaide, 8 children, 39 grand and 61 great-grandchildren. Brothers Afton Richens, Arlo Richens; sister, Thelma McKenna.
