Richard L. Arave Obituary
Richard L. Arave was born to Marshall Arave and June Sunderland Arave in Salt Lake City, Utah, on June 20, 1955.
He died Sunday in a rafting accident, while floating the Southfork of the Boise River, an unexpected end to a life spent exploring remote and beautiful places in Idaho.
Richard grew up in Blackfoot, ID and attended ISU in Pocatello. He married Mary Stone-Arave on Aug. 29, 1981.
He attended dental school at OSHU then moved to Boise to start a practice and raise a family. Richard was a diligent dentist, a skilled outdoorsman and an avid traveler. He approached everything in life with genuine enthusiasm. He was a profoundly good man, and a loving husband, father, and friend.
He is survived by his wife Mary, his sons, Jared and Ethan, his mother, June, and his brother, Pete. He is preceded in death by his father, Marshall Arave, his sister, Connie Irwin, and his brother, Rob Arave.
Please join us for a memorial, Friday, July 1, between the hours of 6 and 8 p.m., at 2007 N. 24th St, Boise, for a potluck and celebration of his life.
