It is with heavy hearts and fond memories that we say goodbye to our beloved son, brother, and friend, Ricky Bill Child. Ricky was born in Ogden, Utah, on April 12, 1964. He graduated from Bonneville High School. A wonderful, natural hand with horses, Rick trained and raced horses at Les Bois Racetrack back in its heyday and all remember him as the family “horse whisperer.” He understood that with great responsibility and talent with horses came hard work: during the summer, he could often be found bucking hay and cleaning stalls. Rick was not afraid of work and he put his heart into all he did. He worked for Peasley Transfer and Storage for approximately 20 years and was most recently employed with the Idaho Youth Ranch Distribution Center at the time of his death. He was a gentle, kind, and generous soul to all who knew him and we will miss him dearly. We are grateful he graced our lives as long as he did and wish he could have stayed with us longer. Rick is survived by his father Bill Child and stepmother Lois Child of Boise, Idaho; stepfather Rick Jensen of Ogden, Utah; brothers Chet and Justin Child and sister Amber Ullieari of Ogden, Utah; and stepbrothers Michael and Brian Chadwell and stepsister Teresa Williams of Boise, Idaho. Our Ricky was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Jensen of Ogden, Utah, and stepbrother, David Chadwell of Boise, Idaho. We will remember him well.
