Arnon Alphaeus Chidester

Fam recs of Arnon A. Chidester, Richfield, Ut.) Copied from "The Chidester-Chichester Heritage" by Elmer C. Anderson

As a young man Arnon was his father's main stay on the farm. While father was busy with politics, the law and various committees, Arnon took charge of the farm. During his mother's widowhood he and a younger brother maintained the farm for a time until the young- er one took over and Arnon was free to make his own family living. For many years he and his wife Adell worked with Indian youth who attended school in Richfield, giving them a home away from home, socializing with them, offering spiritual guidance and advice as needed. Arnon served as milk tester for the state, coll- ecting milk samples from the dairy herds and testing for tuberculosis. Bang's disease, etc. Family reunions had gone into a decline. It was Arnon who re-instituted and re-organized them and served for a number of years as secretary-treasurer. When his aunt Eveline C. SPROUL found it necessary to give up the research and record keeping, Arnon assumed the responsibility and got it rolling again. The avocation Arnon probably enjoyed most was during the years when he acted as guide in the wilds of southern Utah for hunters and fishermen. He knew every nook and cranny of the mountains; where one would most likely be able to bag a deer and in which lake or stream the best trout would be found. During the season his refrigerator was stocked with big trout and the family came to enjoy a real fish fry often. A dutiful son and loving father, his family stands as a monument to him.
