Richard "Dick" worked for many years for Dowell Schlumberger, spending time in the United Arab Emirates and England. He cherished this time and the people that he met while working for Dowell Schlumberger. He had a few lifelong friends from both childhood and those he met at work that he kept in touch with through the years. He always tried to keep a positive attitude and replied that he was "never better" anytime he was asked how he was doing. He was also a diehard University of Utah Utes football fan. Dick loved his family and enjoyed the time he was able to spend with his children and grandchildren.
Dick is survived by his children, Michael (Celeste) Brant, Amy (John) Lovato; his grandchildren, Zachary Brant, Benjamin Brant and Elijah Lovato; and his siblings Edith Frank, Nelda Johnson and Bernie Reed.
Dick was preceded in death by his wife, Marilyn Brant; his son, David Brant; daughter-in-law, Tammie Brant; and parents, Charles and Morene Brant.
The interment will be held at Utah Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 17111 South Camp Williams Rd., Bluffdale, UT, in a private family celebration.
