Dick Andrews Obituary (1950-2021) – Ogden, UT
Dick Eugene Andrews
October 7, 1950 ~ October 16, 2021
Our loving dad, grandpa, brother and friend passed away on Saturday, October 16, 2021, in the morning with his daughters by his side.
Dick was born on October 7, 1950 to Floyd and Christabel Andrews. He grew up in Sunset, Utah and graduated from Clearfield High School.
Dick married his best friend and lover, Pamela Sue Charlton, on August 8, 1969. Together they spent the next few years in Virginia while Dick served his country in the United States Navy aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise.
Dick and Pam were later blessed with two daughters, Heather and Kellie, who were the light of their lives and whom he considered to be his two angels.
He worked as an accountant at Hill Air Force Base for many years. At the age of 47, he retired early, which enabled him to pursue a second career as a house builder. Dick took great pleasure in helping build houses for his daughters, family, and friends. In both careers, Dick really enjoyed the people he met and the relationships he built.
Dick loved nature. When he was younger, Dick enjoyed hunting, fishing, and hanging out with grandfather Palmer. That love continued his entire life with camping trips to Yellowstone, Carter Creek, Ogden Canyon, and Flaming Gorge. Dick also enjoyed playing card games with the neighbors, walking his Harley dog, gambling in the casinos, and playing golf with his wife, friends, and sons-in-law who he thought were the sons he had never had. His family was his greatest joy. He loved barbecues, birthday parties, pizza evenings, swimming, played with the grandchildren, great-grandchildren and tried to solve all the world’s problems. Dick had a zest for life and a real love for people. He will always be remembered for his quick thinking and humor.
Dick leaves behind his two daughters Heather (Shaun) Young and Kellie (Chris) Funk, seven grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and two brothers, Robert (Cindy) Andrews and James (Joyce) Andrews.
Dick was preceded in the death of Pam, his loving and beloved wife of 52 years; his parents, Floyd and Christabel Andrews; his sister Katy Wiseman and both pairs of grandparents.
