MORGAN – William Arthur Criddle, 81, passed away August 14, 2016 at his son’s home in Idaho Falls. He was born April 25, 1935 to Clayne Ferris and Ivy Sims Criddle in Ogden, Utah.

William joined the Marine Corps in 1953, then later joined the United States Navy in 1957 where he spent four years aboard the submarine USS Capitaine. He eventually retired in 1993 from the United States Navy Reserve.

He loved hard work. He started working for Ogden Fire Dept. and went on to Weber County Fire Dept. where he held every leadership position and retired as Senior Battalion Chief.

William loved horses and animals and spent many days hunting, hiking, and camping and felt most at home in the outdoors. He loved geneology and was proud of the contribution his ancestors made to the Morgan Valley. Morgan was home to him.

William is preceded in death by his parents, one brother Dennis Fred Criddle, and four grandsons.

He is survived by his son Mitchell Arthur (Cheresa) Criddle of Idaho Falls, three grandchildren: Willow, Dune Mitchell, and Cannon William; and also his wife, Bertie Olsen Criddle of Kaysville, Utah.
