David A. Rivedal Jr.

David A. Rivedal Jr. passed away unexpectedly and too soon on Sept. 24, 2015. Born in Clovis, N.M., on Canon Air Force Base, he was a dedicated paramedic/firefighter. He spent his last 17 years proudly serving the Kingman Fire Department.

He leaves behind three children: Kaegan, Ahnika and Tangilyse; the children's mother, Stephanie; parents Karla and David Sr.; sisters Pam and Kristi; multiple extended family; and a large community of EMS friends.

The Rivedal family will be having a viewing from 5-7 p.m. today at Sutton Funeral Home. His memorial will be at 2 p.m. Monday, Oct. 5, in the Lee Williams High School auditorium, followed by a graveside service. A celebration of his life will be held at the Kingman Elks Lodge No. 468 from 4-7 p.m. after the service.

We were blessed by his smile, sense of humor and by his warm-hearted presence. Dave will be sorely missed.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations for his children to Compass Bank.
