ARO - Alex Richard Ottwell

Rich (Pops) was born December 3rd, 1945 in Sidney, Mt. to Curly & Irene Ottwell.  He was in the middle of six siblings, three brothers - Grant, Bud & Tim, and two sisters - Jane & Cheryl.  He met Judith Ann Connor at the Point of Rocks Restaurant & bar in August 1972.  They were married on January 20th 1973. They had three children, one boy - Ben who passed away at 8 months old, and two girls - Paula Nicole & Kate Louise.  Richard had a funny sense of humor and was loyal to the bone for his friends and family.  To know him was an honor.  To know him was to know how awesome suspenders were.  To know him was to know he was a good man of God.  
He was in the US Army in the 1960's and went to Thailand during the Vietnam War.  He spent 46 plus years of his life in Olney, Mt. where he was loved dearly by many wonderful people.  He worked for American Timber for over thirty three years up until its shut down.
He was a great husband & father, providing constantly for his family, and an even better grandpa... You will be greatly missed.  We love you ARO!
