Lyle Clark Rich

Lyle Clark Rich died 20 April 2024 in Ivins, Utah at the Southern Utah Veterans Home where he was a resident for the past three years. Lyle Clark Rich was born in Richville, Morgan County, Utah on September 27,1935 to Willian Rawle and Dora Clark Rich.

 

He served in the United States army from August 1958 to February 1962 including a tour in Korea. After his army service he worked for Swift and Co. in Ogden, Utah. He also worked for the Bureau of Reclamation as a surveyor. He married Pamela Wilson on July 6, 1963. They were later sealed in the Logan Utah Temple on May 17, 1965

 

Lyle spent 40 plus years on the dairy farm which he owned in Fairview, Idaho. He served on several committees and boards including DHI, and the village water board. He was active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints holding a number of positions. He was always willing to help those less fortunate by providing work or other resources enabling them to be self-reliant. He was a generous man, often giving money to the bishop for families in need at Christmastime. Lyle has always had a passion for baseball and softball and volunteered as a city league softball umpire for numerous years. Lyle and Pamela moved to St. George, Utah in November 2006 after retiring from the dairy farm. But for some years afterward he would spend the summers in Fairview serving as the Cub River Irrigation Watermaster.
