Rick Bishop

June 12, 1961 — September 17, 2022

Payson, Utah

Ricky Lloyd Bishop, 61 Years Young passed away on September 17th, 2022, at Huntsman Cancer Institute after a short but hard battle with Leukemia and other medical problems. Rick was brought into the world by Lloyd Delbert Bishop and Nancy Jean Farley, in Provo, Utah, on June 12, 1961. He grew up and went to school in Orem. He married Shalin Thomas on December 4th, 1982.

Rick began working construction at an early age and continued working in the field till he passed away. Rick loved cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Rick was an avid racecar driver. He spent a lot of his time preparing his car for the dirt circle track and raced at the local track (Santana Raceway) for several years.

When Rick became a grandpa, his world changed. Rick spent as much time as he could with his grandkids. He was known to get on a plane to fly back to Utah when out of state working to watch his grandkids play baseball. Rick would do anything he could for them. Rick was also known to neighborhood children as Grandpa. He would go out of his way to throw easter egg hunts for the children who lived near to or far from him. Children were special to him, related or not.

Rick also loved hunting, fishing, and golf. We believe the reason he enjoyed this so much is it was time to spend with his family. He never went by himself, it was always an invitation for the family. He made everyone feel like they were his favorite.

Rick was the most kind-hearted man you could have met. He would help anyone he could. If you needed a tool and asked him, he would have it and you bet he would let you use it. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed or wanted it. Rick spent much of his time the last few years at Callies Cafe. He loved the Killer Hash Browns and the good people there.

Rick is survived by his children, Cory and Kabri Bishop, Josh Bishop, Kenyon and Marissa Bishop, and Jerico Bishop. Four grandchildren, Carissa Bishop, Cooper Bishop, Drake Bishop, and Kayger Bishop. And many other family and friends that loved him dearly.

A final goodbye will be held for Rick Bishop on September 23rd at Sundberg-Olpin Mortuary 495 South State Street, Orem, Utah. from 11:30 to 12:30. Rick did not want a viewing. This will be a closed casket event. Graveside services will be held at the Provo Cemetery 610 South State Street, Provo, Utah, from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm.
