David Gene Bolton, 50, passed away unexpectedly on June 26, 2018. He was born on June 15, 1968, in Murray, Utah to Gene and Maxine Bolton. He married Vickie Jo Richins for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple on April 9, 1994.
Dave was a loving husband, father, brother, son and new grandfather. Dave’s joys were from being with his family, his beautiful wife Vickie, his children, Josh, Kaylie (Paul), Jared, Kassidy, Jacob and his new grandson, Caleb.
He was an avid outdoorsman and loved serving those around him with his innate gifts of compassion, organization, kindness, and generosity. Dave was a big sports fan, his favorite teams being the Utah Jazz, BYU and San Francisco Giants.
Dave served an LDS mission in New Zealand Christchurch and served in many LDS callings, but his favorite was serving the youth through the scouting program. Dave was very organized and planned well in advance for many scouting and hiking trips. With Dave’s love of the scouting program, he was so proud of his three sons achieving their Eagle Scout. He was also very pleased with his daughters both completing their Young Womenhood Recognition. He had a special place in his heart for his children; they had him wrapped around their fingers and he would do anything for them.
Dave’s desire in life was to have an eternal family and to be together forever.
Dave is survived by his wife Vickie, his children Josh, Kaylie (Paul) Struthers, Jared, Kassidy, Jacob and grandson Caleb; his parents, Gene and Maxine Bolton; his siblings, Connie (Randy) Seal, Jim (Karyn) Bolton, Karen (Larry) Dunn, Gary (Valerie) Bolton, Heather (Israel) Barlow, and many nieces and nephews who adored him.
He is preceded in death by his brother Steven Bolton and father-in-law LeLand Richins.
