Richard McKee Bean
1922 ~ 2019
Richard McKee "Critch" Bean, age 96, at long last embraced his sweetheart Jane Kay Bean, April 2, 2019 while convalescing in the Central Utah Veterans Home in Payson, Utah. Jane had preceded him in death by 11 years. He was born in Richfield, Utah on September 22, 1922 to Isaac Wall "Ike" Bean and Hattie Selena Bartlett Bean. Critch was the last of their 6 children.
He had a lifelong love of hunting and of guns and became quite adept at turning a piece of wood and a barrel and action into beautiful and accurate rifles. Critch was active in a black powder club, the Utahah Frontiersmen He taught hunter safety for many years. He loved the Boy Scouts of America and served as Scoutmaster for a number of years, often camping with the troop in a large teepee he had fabricated. Critch was an active ham operator, for more than 60 years, with the callsign K7MOC. He participated in several preparedness ‘nets’ each week on the radio. Critch served during WWII aboard the Marine Corps aircraft carrier “USS Gilbert Islands” (CVE 107) as an airplane mechanic and squad leader in the Pacific theater. He rose to the rank of Tech Sergeant, and counted his military service as very formative and precious.
Critch married Jane Kay of Annabella, the love of his life, April 13, 1947 in Las Vegas, NV. The marriage was later solemnized in the Manti Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They and a group of dear friends would often date together, meeting at Fish Lake Lodge for dancing, and then recite poetry by moonlight, each man having memorized part or all of a ‘romantic” poem, such as “The Cremation of Sam McGee,” or “The Song of Hiawatha.” The poetry must have worked its magic, because 3 of the 4 couples married the same day in Las Vegas. Critch served faithfully in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in a variety of callings and assignments until the effects of advancing age, and deafness, became too challenging. He and Jane served together as ordinance workers in the Manti Temple and as missionaries, both locally and to the good people of Galion, Ohio while serving in the Ohio Columbus Mission. They loved their neighbors, friends, and family, and seemed to be everyone's grandparents. Critch retired after 35+ years from the "telephone company" (MST&T and Mountain Bell), after which he filled his time with gardening; hunting; family events; ward, stake and mission functions; neighborly things; and eventually caring for Jane in her twilight years. He felt great joy in reading scripture and learning of his Savior, and in sharing his testimony.
Critch was preceded in death by his parents, his 4 sisters and elder brother, his angel wife, and 2 grandsons. He is survived by all 7 children: Rex (Kae) Bean, Virginia (Richard) Power, James (Cathy) Bean, Valerie (Tracy) Johnson, Julie Burgess, David (Cheri) Bean, and Jeffery (Denise) Bean; 33 grandchildren, 44 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren.

1960 - 2019
Dot, as she was affectionately called, passed away in her home on April 4, 2019 in Nephi Utah. She was born January 11, 1960 in Nephi, Utah.
Dot was born and raised in Nephi and made many friends along the way. She met Bud Woodruff and they were married for nearly twenty years. During those years they raised four children together. In her younger years she loved to dance and spent many days wandering through the local hills rock hounding and searching for long lost trinkets buried from time. She endured many struggles throughout her life, but she always loved with her whole heart, often selflessly, and always knew how to laugh even at herself. She loved all her children unconditionally as if they were from her own flesh and blood. As a grandma, an aunt, cousin, sister, and friend she was loved and adored by many. She talked about the love, pride, and adoration she had for her family, often. She never shied away from conversation or friendships. No one was a stranger in her home. If you knew her, you loved her.
Left to honor and remember her love are her significant other, George Moore, brother, Vaughn (Gayle) Thomas and sister, Susan Twitchell, five children; James Regan Barney, Scott Barney, Devi (Darek) Cooper, Tracy (Chris) Wilson, and Buddy (Jordan) Woodruff, sixteen grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
