Will then moved to Salt Lake to work for Hercules where he retired in 1995. After retirement, Will moved to Scofield to live full time where he met several dear friends. He loved being in the outdoors. It didn't matter if it were waterskiing at Bear Lake or hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, and riding his 4wheeler in Scofield. He loved being in the outdoors. He enjoyed visiting and doing maintenance work for the subdivision where he lived. He was quite the tradesman and enjoyed helping others and meeting new friends. Will is survived by his two children Jerry (Karen) Richards and Natalie Richards; siblings Margorie (George) Savoy, Lyle (Loise) Richards; grandchildren Sydney Richards; Zach (Lyndsee) Richards and great granddaughter Whitlee Richards. He was preceded in death by his parents Earl and Olive; siblings Elmer (Lorraine) Richards; Elwood (Alice) Richards, Arlene (Don) Wilson. In keeping with Will's wishes, there will be no services.
