On July 14, 2013 our loved and admired Pa, Dad, Daddy and Gramps, Richard Caldwell, rode
off to a greener pasture on his spade bit pony in heaven. He was born on July 3 to Roscoe
Caldwell and Nancy Stanley in Soda Springs Idaho. He is survived by five brothers, Stephen
Caldwell, Gregory Caldwell, Todd Caldwell, Dewyn Caldwell, JR Caldwell, one sister Becky
Parker, his mother Nancy Stanley and his stepmother Dora Lee Caldwell. His three daughters
that he loved more than horses, Amee Caldwell Albrecht, Charee Caldwell, Billee Jo
Caldwell and the son he always considered his own Weston Albrecht. His grandchildren that
were the highlight and love of his life that he was so proud of Kierra Riata, Chantz,
Skyler, Sage, Kanyon, Kyzlee Jo and Graycee Ann. All seven of them thought the world of
him and looked up to their "Gramps".
He was preceded in death by his father Roscoe Caldwell.
His girls have great love and respect for the lifelong friends that he considered family
and they will always be family to them.
He was an amazing horseman and strived his entire life to learn, teach, and carry on the
vaquero traditions beginning with George Hulme in Paris who he admired greatly and Ray
Ordway who was his inspiration.
Dad had pride in everything he did from his horses to his tack to being "a man of his
word". He will never be forgotten and his legacy will live on forever through his
family and those whose lives he greatly impacted.
A tribute to his life will be held on Aug 2 in Alturas California.
"There Was Always Love In Daddy's Hands." Love ya more than horses!
