Salt Lake City, UT – Kenneth Richard “Rich” Richmond of Salt Lake City passed away on October 31, 2021 with loved ones at home. At the young age of 48, he was told of terminal cancer with courage and humor. Those who knew him wouldn’t be surprised that he died on Halloween.

He leaves behind his wife Galina Pierpont; Son Carter Norton Richmond; Brother Rusty Robert Spriggs; Stepfather Rusell Allen Spriggs; former wife Belinda Hicks; former spouse and Carter’s mother, Carrie Norton; and his beloved cat Jaxxon.

Previously deceased from his mother Toni W. Richmond Spriggs; and grandparents Kenneth “Buddy” Richmond and Cleah Richmond.

Rich was a dedicated county employee, and after a quarter of a century his employees were like family. Although he had a reputation for being tough on the edges, he was a loyal friend and loved his family and people dearly.

His sudden death and general privacy left many sad and surprised; Instead of mourning the loss of loved ones, we celebrate the time we had with them.

A Celebration of Life will be held in the Willies Lounge on November 13, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. in Rich’s honor.
