      October 2, 1930 - July 14, 2016

      Richard Horace Ensign, formerly of Huntsville, returned to his Heavenly Father and loving wife, Kathryn, on July 14, 2016.

      Richard was born on October 2, 1930 in Ogden, Utah, a son of Horace Samuel Ensign and Olive Mae Jones. He was raised in Ogden and spent summers at the family cabin along the South Fork River near Causey Dam. He attended Ogden High School and the University of Utah College of Pharmacy. He served in the Army Reserve 328th General Hospital Unit at Fort Douglas for eight years.

      He married Kathryn Fay Jensen on March 14, 1957 in the Salt Lake Temple. They spent 56 wonderful years together, first living in Riverdale and then settling in their beloved town of Huntsville. Richard was a devoted caregiver to Kathryn before her passing in July of 2013. He was a loving father and great example to their four children: Carol (Randy) Coleman of Riverdale, Darla (Robert) Taylor of Layton, Richard (Stephanie) Ensign of Kaysville and Douglas (Valerie) Ensign of West Haven. He has twelve grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren who adore him. Also surviving is his brother, Robert (Lila) Ensign of Reston, Virginia.

      Richard worked as a pharmacist at his father's drugstore, Ensign Drug, and became the owner when his father retired. He was the Director of Pharmacy at McKay-Dee Hospital and later worked at the IHC Central Office. While in his 50?s he earned a Master's Degree from BYU. He was on the Huntsville City Council and volunteered as a pharmacist at the Ogden Rescue Mission.

      He was a faithful member of the L.D.S. church where he served in many callings including Bishop, Bishopric Counselor, High Counselor, Stake Young Men's Counselor, Ward Executive Secretary, Stake Clerk, and Temple Worker.

      Richard was exceptionally knowledgeable and dedicated to family history. He and Kathryn served a full-time mission for the L.D.S. Church at the Salt Lake Family History Center. He was subsequently an Associate Director of the Ogden Family History Center. At the time of his passing, he was serving as a Family History Missionary by answering calls that were routed to his phone from individuals throughout the world needing assistance with Family Search.

      Richard will be remembered for his service, quiet strength, kindness, and optimism. He enjoyed reading and learning, fishing, computers, puzzles, and trains. He was a man of great faith with an unwavering testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

      Richard was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, Ray and John McFarland, and many friends and loved ones.

      Funeral Services will be held Wednesday, July 20 at 11 a.m. at the Huntsville LDS 2nd ward, 277 S. 7400 E. Viewings will be on Tuesday, July 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Leavitt's Mortuary, 836 36th Street in Ogden, and July 20 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the Huntsville church.
