We CELEBRATE THE LIFE of Beau Charles Richey! On May 28th
2016, at the age of 16, he was in an ATV accident that facilitated
his ability to return to his Heavenly Home. Alma 40:11-12
11 Now, concerning the state of the soul between death
and the resurrection—…… the spirits of
all men, as soon as they are departed from this mortal body,
yea, the spirits of all men, whether they be good or evil,
are taken home to that God who gave them life.
12 And then shall it come to pass, that the spirits of
those who are righteous are received into a state of happiness,
which is called paradise, a state of rest, a state of peace,
where they shall rest from all their troubles and from all
care, and sorrow.
Beau knows God! Through many life experiences, he learned
to dearly love Him and his elder brother, Jesus Christ!
He allowed his challenges to make him strong. Beau’s
favorite scripture was Helaman 5:12.
12 And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon
the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God,
that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil
shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the
whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall
beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you
down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the
rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation,
a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.
Beau’s foundation was Christ! Every hour his phone
had a reminder pop up that said, “Make Christ the
center of your life!” We understand he would at that
time read a scripture, say a prayer or find someone to serve.
He knew his patriarchal blessing well and set specific goals
according to its guidance. He loved the Temple! He valued
friends with high standards who uplifted him and inspired
him to be a better person! He loved seminary! He couldn’t
wait to serve a mission, be married in the temple to his
“smokin hot wife”, have a million children and
his very own Alaskan Husky. He passionately wanted to be
an Air Force Pilot and promised he would fly us all where
ever we wanted to go!
Beau was happy! His yellow jeep with the license plate
that said, “HAPPI” was a favorite. He loved
driving anywhere, especially up the beautiful canyon with
his music full blast singing to the tops of his lungs. Les
Miserable’s and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir were his
favorites! He loved all sports, especially golf! He loved
Moab, motorcycles, hot tubing, sunshine, tentsile camping,
Lake Powell, Costco chocolate muffins warmed up and soaked
in milk, staying up late, watching movies, sleeping on his
brown couch, laughing and practical jokes!
Beau loved everyone! Family, siblings, friends, girlfriend,
neighbors, his whole ward, teachers, people he worked with,
Maeli, SJ, strangers….everyone! When ask why he deactivated
his social media he said, “I don’t want to miss
out on life!” He savored every second with each and
every one of us! Nothing took priority over his relationships!
We all felt like we were his favorites by how he treated
us! He would always greet us with his gorgeous smile! Ohhhh,
his smile! His laugh! His presence lit up the entire room!
We CELEBRATE the life of Beau Richey! We feel privileged
to have had him in our lives! His spirit lives on! We know
that he is incredibly happy and wants all of us to be incredibly
happy too! Because of Beau, we want to keep Christ the foundation
of our lives; we want to be happy and we want to love everyone!
“Heroes are remembered but legends never die”!
Stay HAPPI #livelikebeau
