Richard E. Cragun

Richard E Cragun, 57, passed suddenly and unexpectedly on Friday May 7, 2021.

He was born January 8, 1964 in Ogden, Utah to Larry H. and Nona Jean Cragun.
He was raised in South Ogden and graduated from Bonneville High School in 1982. He later earned a technical degree from Stevens Henagar College as an operating room technician.
He married Michelle Miller in 1982. Together they had three children, James Richard, Tiffany, and Stacey. They later divorced.
He then married Jessica Jensen in 1993. Together they had two children, Amanda and Bailee. They later divorced.
He then met and married Elizabeth Holden in 2016, who was always there for him and was by his side to the end. They made their home in Pleasant View, Utah and made each other incredibly happy.
Richard enjoyed storytelling, was an avid reader, and was always the life of the party. You could often find him reading a new novel with a 64-ounce mug of Diet Pepsi by his side.
He enjoyed watching the Dallas Cowboys play on Sundays and had a great rivalry with his daughter Amanda. He really enjoyed watching and talking movies with anyone who would listen, especially his children.
