OBITUARY ~ RICHARD LEE SPURRIER

Services for Richard Spurrier were held Friday October 27, 1995 at the Christian Church in Clearfield.

Officiating the services were Rev. Eydie Stephens. Music was provided by Mrs. Earl Gaule, Mrs. Erwood Huffman, Mrs. Gary Bickers, and Mrs. Ben Knapp. Casket bearers were Wayne Wilson, Bob Swanson, Ron Swanson, Wayne Kemery, Jerry Fletchall, and Chester Anderson. Honorary pallbearers were Alan Larsen, Dean Rowe, Jeff Reed, Al Freese, Dale Whitson, Larry Brammer, Paul England and Charles Jackson.

Richard Lee Spurrier began his life on July 28, 1937, when he was born to R. E. and Fern Shaffer Spurrier in Clearfield. He passed away unexpectedly on October 21, 1995 while visiting his son and family in Costa Mesa, Calif.

Rich grew up in his hometown of Clearfield and lived his entire life in the community. At the age of 14 Rich began working at the Spurrier Service Station, a business purchased by his grandfather, Albert Spurrier and later operated by his father, R.E.

After graduating from Clearfield High School, Rich continued working in the family station business.

Three years later he met Mary Ellen Leach and on June 7, 1959 they were married at the Clearfield Christian Church.

Rich and Mary Ellen were blessed with two sons, Richard Cory and Clinton Lee. In 1971 Rich bought the station's bulk plant and tank wagon business from R.E. In the years that followed, he expanded into the gas transportation business. After many years of hard work building this successful business, Rich's later years found him spending more time enjoying the most important part of his life - his family.

Thanks to the dedicated work of his trusted employee Cindy Campbell, Rich was able to visit his sons and their families often in California and Sioux City.

Rich was preceded in death by his father, R.E., and brother, John Paul, both of Clearfield, and his father-in-law Harry (Pete) Leach of Lenox.

Survivors include his wife Mary Ellen; his eldest son, Cory, and his wife Paula and daughter Kylie of Costa Mesa, Calif.; his youngest son, Clint, and his wife Kris, sons Jakob and Caleb, and daughter Jazmine of Sioux City, Iowa; mother Fern of Clearfield; brother Dean (Curley) Spurrier with his wife Brenda of Clearfield; and his mother-in-law Gladys Leach of Lenox; as well as his other relatives, his many friends and his community.

Interment was in the Clearfield Cemetery Clearfield, Iowa. Wilson-Watson Funeral Home was in charge of the arrangements.
