Richard Odell England, age 73, passed away July 9, 2000 in West Jordan, Utah.

Born March 2, 1927 in Gaston, North Carolina where he lived for 18 years. Richard served in the U.S. Army for 11 years. He met Gerane Rolfson while in the service and married her December 16, 1956 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Richard was a very friendly person and loved to visit with family, friends and perfect strang-ers. He learned to fly small aircraft, he loved to go on long rides in the car, he loved camping, and he dearly loved his wife and family.

His family will miss him and his contagious smile but we are glad he is free to fly again.
