1938 ~ 2004

Richens W. Post passed away on October 21, 2004.

He was born July 6, 1938 to William H. Post and Tessie Giaugue.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Trudy Rasmussen. They were married on a beautiful warm day on Feb. 19, 1977, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. He enjoyed a love-filled, happy marriage. He is also survived by his five children, whom he loved deeply, Stacey (James) Meyer, Steve (Janae) Post, Amber (Darrell) Driver, Brian Post, and Chanté (Briant) Howard. He hated the thought of leaving his 11 grandchildren. He leaves behind a very close, extended family. He was preceded in death by his parents; infant son, Mark; brother, Gary; and half brother, Glen.

Rich played the French horn, and for a short time, was a substitute for the Utah Symphony.

He served his country for five years, active duty, in the Air Force and 15 years in the Army Reserve, retiring as a Lt. Col.

Richens W. Post, DDS, served other people's needs for over 30 years. He loved dentistry. He enjoyed working on children. He enjoyed making people laugh, easing their pain and changing lives, making them smile again. Patients young and old loved Dr. Post.

His greatest desire was to serve the Lord. He went to New Zealand on his mission, had many callings in the Church, and found great joy and happiness doing temple work for his ancestors. He felt like he was the richest man in the world with his beautiful wife, children and grandchildren. He had an ability to tell jokes and had a great sense of humor. He will be remembered for his generous and caring heart.

Funeral services will be held on Monday, Oct. 25, at the Cottonwood Heights Stake Center, 6890 S. 2225 E, at 12 noon. Viewing will be held at 10:30 a.m. prior to services. Interment will be at Wasatch Lawn.
