Rick Tanovich

01/1965 – 08/28/2022

Richard (Rick) Terrence Tanovich, 57, of South Ogden passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family after a tragic accident at a North SLC Car Wash.

Rick was born to Terry Tanovich and Kaye Keim in Ogden Utah.  He attended Bonneville High School, and was currently employed with LW Miller Truck and Trailer Repair, where he has built some of his closest relationships and made many friends for the last 20 years; they’ve became his second family.

Rick married Teresa Barber on December 01, 1984.  They had three amazing kiddos: Chris, Mikey and Kayla.  Rick was devoted to his wife, family, work. He was a gun enthusiast, avid fisherman, football fanatic, Star Wars junkie, a love of the outdoors and camping.

He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, and sister and fur babies.

Rick is survived by his loving wife, Teresa; Kiddos: Chris (Kenzie Wills), Mikey (Kylee) and Kayla (Cody); and his greatest joy, his grandchildren: Elijah, Elyse, Kembri, Tatum and Abigail; sister, Debbie; brother, Corey (Kris); nephews TJ and Colton;  and cousins who were more like siblings.

Rick is also survived by his wife’s enormous loving and caring family, too many to name here, but loved him all the same … Mother and Father in-laws, brother in-laws, sister in-laws, nieces, nephews.
