Arthur Richard Melton, Dr. P.H. (Dick) 1943 - 2013

West Jordan-Our beloved husband, father and grandfather, Arthur Richard Melton passed away peacefully at his home in West Jordan on May 12, 2013.

Dick was born April 28, 1943 to Jean Graham and Francis Charles Melton.

Dick was a loving husband and father who always put his family's needs above his own comfort. His greatest joy was spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren and took great pride in their accomplishments.

Dr. Melton, as he was known in his professional role, was a strong advocate for public health. His professional pursuits took him to North Carolina (where he received his doctorate degree in public health), the CDC and the Dakotas before finally settling in Utah where he served as the Laboratory Director and then Deputy Director of the State Health Department. He was a trusted advisor to several executive directors and was held in high regard in the national public health community.

Dick will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. He had an infectious laugh which brought smiles to many people. We are comforted in knowing he is rejoicing with his Heavenly Father.

He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Frances Bay Melton, his children David Melton (Laura), Amy Norman (Roger), 5 granddaughters and 2 step-grandsons, 2 sisters; Diana Elliott and Doris Franzoy. He is preceded in death by his parents and brother, Dale Melton.

Family and friends may pay their respects Friday May 17 from 6-8 pm at Redwood Memorial Estates, 6500 S Redwood Road and Saturday May 18 at 10:00 am at the LDS church house located at 6695 S. 2200 W. followed by funeral services at 11:00.
