Richard Anthony Santos

U.S. Veteran

Richard Anthony Santos was born June 8th, 1942 to Anthony and Verne Santos in Salmon, Idaho. He was welcomed home by his sister Jean. Dick started school in a one room school house, the Geertson Creek School. He then went to school in Salmon. He was much too smart to finish high school, and joined the Air Force. He was stationed in Little Rock Arkansas and finished his tour in Goose Bay Labrador. He married Marlene Williams in Salmon in 1967. One son, Richard Scott was born in 1969. He was a logger, worked for the Forest service and was a police officer. Then when his dad became ill, he took over the family ranch on Geertson Creek, and was living there when he passed away, May 26, 2014. Dick was a cowboy at heart. He loved the rodeo and helped all the kids, he was on the Fair Board for years. He always rode a good horse, and he had a few that weren’t so good. He joined the National Bench Rest Shooters Association in 1994. He shot competition many years, competed in Hunter Class throughout the years and finished in the Top 20 many times. He enjoyed National Matches for many years. He is survived by his wife, Marlene of 47 years, son Scott (Tammy) Santos of Salmon, daughter Christine of Twin Falls, Idaho, sister Jean (Ray) Stockton of Rupert, Idaho, brothers: David (Elaine) Santos of Blackfoot, Idaho and Don Santos of Salmon; grandson Anthony (Jessie) Santos of Salmon and his beloved granddaughter Ashley of Twin Falls, Idaho. He is preceded in death by father Anthony (Buck) and mother Verne. His father-in-law Oliver Williams and Uncle Sid Williams. He was buried on the Family Ranch Cemetery, by family and friends. He was one of a kind and will truly be missed. Marlene and Scott appreciate all the help and love from family, friends, and good neighbors. Couldn’t have done it without you all.
